    I've visited Riga on business last year.
    I can't comment/suggest on accommodation, but I can assure you that Riga is a remarkably lovely and a very safe place.
    It could be more a bit more expensive than you'd expect though...

    Try Doma Hostel . The hostel has an excellent location right in the centre of the old town. The hostel is about 10-15 mins walk from the bus/train stations.

    As I live in Riga I recommend you to chose this inexpencive hostel:

    youthhostel.lv/en/prices.htm...

    Riga is a small town. Prices in Old Riga are very much European.

    The benefits of its hostel: its a little bit far from old town, but in quite cozy and inexpensive place. A lot of inexpencive small cafe and restaurants are within walking distanse (200-300 m), including Central railway station.

    You can take a bus 22 from airport - stop is opposit to exit.
    Price per any bus trip: 0,70 LVL = ~1 EUR.
    From airport: chose the 2nd stop after you cross a river (its near by big-big cinema). Than go by walk forward - about 300-350 miters.
    Print location of hostel from google map.

    Or you can go by taxi, airport->hostel costs ~ 7-8 LVL.

    Be aware that you can pay in LVL, not in other currencies.
    Most of shops/hostels, but not museums and theatres, accept credit cards
