The best experience that I could have had in Riga. It was my first real voluntering in a Hostel, after a bad experience for a few days in another one. Luis and the Hostel staff are very friendly people and they teached me how to run the business. After this experience, I would like to work again as a volunteer. I recommend you Mr. Hostel 100%!!!!
My experience at Mr.Hostel was great! The hostel in itself is nicely located, fairly small, and it has a living area where you can chill and hang out with the guests. You get to learn a bit about reception which is always nice if you are newbie with that stuff. The expectations of the manager, Luis, are the same as any hostel manager : be reliable, social with the guests, and overall do what you signed up for. Cleaning is not always the funniest thing you can do but Luis, Rīga and the guests you meet easily make up for it !
