The Doma Hostel, around the corner from Doma Laukums (Dome Square), offers bare-bones dorm rooms and doubles on the second floor of an apartment building.
Rooms, both dorms and privates, are no-nonsense, with windows looking out to central Skunu iela. Dorms sport retro pleather chairs and bunk beds sleeping 4-12 (40 beds total). Two private rooms (one single and one double) are tight and share the hostel’s communal baths.
Of all the hostels we visited, the Doma is the most central—enjoying a location smack dab in the heart of Old Town—and it struck us as a very friendly place. That said, it's also pretty grungy and could use some renovating.
Kitchsy touches are evident here. Humorous artwork hangs on the walls, and the TV lounge is outfitted with a leopard-print sofa (and free Internet station). All these details add to the social atmosphere of the place, meaning it can be rowdy well into the night.
Free Wi-Fi is available, and the hostel has a free Internet station. The entire property is non-smoking.

About the Doma Hostel neighborhood
The "Old Town" is the medieval heart of Riga, a maze of winding cobblestone streets, stony churches and public squares. Most of the city’s main tourist sights are located here, including the Cathedral, St. Peter’s Church, House of the Blackheads, Parliament and the Castle. The Old Town is unsurprisingly also home to a wide range of restaurants, bars, shops and hotels.
