Nearing the end of 2008 we look at this year to see that Argonaut Hostel is the only hostel in Riga to win a Top Ten Hostel in the World award in 2008 from the largest hostel booking agent in the world. Argonaut has the best rated location at 98% satisfaction and our scond hostel - Barons City Central Hostel is the highest rated hostel in Riga for August and September 2008 and also so far in October it holds the highest rating for all hostels in Riga.
The Argonaut Travellers Bar is a good hang out to meet other travellers and get some romances started. Argonaut has managed to avoid attracting just guys as our female staff and our security continue make female travellers to feel welcome and secure. In the evening many guests head on a guided tour to bars in Riga. Departure 10pm.
The latest refugees are Rosemary and John from Adelaide Australia. Lost their wallet, cards and money on their travels and stumbled in to Argonaut. We have booked them in for 7 weeks at both Argonaut Old Town Hostel and our Liepaja Beach Hostel. A really nice couple so much so that we had them home for dinner.
