This applies to our Staff and Volunteers as well, everyone here is super freindly and out going, and loves the hostel atmosphere. We're here to make freinds and have a good time. We want you to be part of that as well.

It was my first hostel volunteer and the host accepted me very quickly after the application.
It wasn’t what I have expected of a hostel volunteer since i wasn’t experienced enough to inform what or how much work is really is.
The housekeeping was for me really intensive. It’s a big hostel with many bathrooms and beds to do. And we were only two volunteers in housekeeping so i think it is a big issue!
I quit the volunteer after a week to find out from other hostel/ volunteer that it’s not the standard of a hostel volunteer what I’ve experienced there.
I wouldn’t recommend this hostel.

My one month in Naughty Squirrel hostel was incredible and I’m so sad that I have to leave this lovely place. I feel like one month there was too fast for me because from one day to other day I got a chance to make new friends and had a good time with them. Personally for me the work is easy , you just have to clean the bathroom, making beds and etc nothing complicated.So I think if you want to work and have a lot parties at the same time this is the right place for you. Thank you so much Matt, Gabriel, Liga, Nora, Daniel, Laura, Riana for helping me with everything and make me feel home.

We miss you already bro!! Absolute Legend



I was supposed to stay for 1 month but I extended for 2! It’s been one of the most rewarding experience in life. Tasks are easy: work 5h cleaning the hostel and making beds (2 days off/week). Matt and Gabe, the owners, put their trust in you to take care of the hostel and i’m happy I’ve work with them. I stayed in a shared room with the other volunteers; rooms are big, with lockers and every bed has a curtain for your privacy. The hostel offers a lot of activities and pub crawl every weekend: the best way to meet new people and know Riga! Don’t miss this opportunity! Best of luck squirrels!

I arrived at the hostel and was very well looked after. I stayed in the hostel for a month, but it felt like a long time. It was definitely the best choice I made to volunteer in Riga. The work is quiet, cleaning the bathrooms, making the beds. The staff is very friendly and always woke up in a good mood. I had a good experience meeting new people, shooting tour, pub crawl, party in the hostel. The hostel is very lively and has many activities to do. I want to thank everyone at the hostel in special Gabriel, Matt, Michela, Viktorija were fundamental in this journey. I hope to see you soon.

Thanks ellen! We are happy you enjoyed your time with us and it was great having you here! It definitely feels quieter with you, and we already miss your chocolate cakes !! Thanks again and good luck with your next trip!



I had an amazing experience at Naughty Squirrel Hostel. I worked during few hours in the mornings (simple tasks : making beds, cleaning bathrooms, etc). Gabriel and Matt are very nice, I had a lot of fun working with them (I even had the opportunity to shoot with guns guys, at a shooting range). That's why I decided to extend my stay for one more week. If you go, you will meet a lot of people from all arround the world. Also, it is a safe place for girls travelling alone. ;)
