“Great Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2012

Stayed at the Dome Pear for 3 nights and it was an average, basic hostel. The staff was friendly, and we booked a double room for two which turned out to be a huge room designed for six people. The room was pretty clean, and the two bathrooms on the floor were decent. The hostel did not have much of a community feel, where you can have a beer and chat with other travellers. Best part of hostel is its prime location right in the heart of the city center with bars, pubs, restaurants all right at your doorstep. There was a great cafe across the street which was perfect place to start the day.

We booked a room in the hostel far in advance but when we came to the hostel we were told that there was no room and they had booked another hostel for us. The main point was the location and thus we were greatly dissatisfied. Besides the staff claimed they gave us a notice by e-mail which was not true.

Very basic hostel with excellent location in the centre of the Old Town. Staff was friendly and helpful. I was disappointed because they never mentioned that payment with credit cards wasn't accepted. Also free WiFi wasn't available as they had promised.
Be aware that there isn't a lift at the hostel. However, location and price for this hostel are unbeatable!

I am basically in agreement with other reviewers. For what you pay (we paid about 10 lats - £15 - per night), you get a place to stay in the heart of Riga with great staff who advised us to visit places such as Mezaparks (which was great) and Jurmala (which we never got round to), as well as being able to dispense info about bus times etc.

The building itself is a beautiful architectural example of Latvian skill which you can see throughout Riga - although the facade was under renovation when we visited and so there was a lot of scaffolding but that's hardly the hotel's fault.

The rooms have everything you need (kitchen facilities are non-present, but there are so many restaurants nearby you don't need them) and for a great price, you can't complain.
