NSB Riga Hostel Staff

Jarrod – After backpacking around South America the next stop was UK and Europe. Using London as a base and working as an Art Director in the advertising industry I traveled around Europe. I first came to Riga in 2006 during a 3 month backpacking trip and I never thought I would be living here all these years later… life is truly amazing.

Alise – I would say I am that one person who likes to talk with everyone, know everything about everyone, just get my nose on others business and make a good laugh about the oddest situations.

Margo – I love tattooed men and I fart rainbows 🙂 you can call me Sassy Mclovin.
I hate beardy beardy people and the rest is up to your imagination!

Anita – If your reading this we have something in common, travelling. The beauty
of discovering the world with its best side effect, having the chance to meet new
& awesome friends. The past few years I have been traveling & living in Greece,
UK and Canada. Hopefully see you in the Naughty Squirrel soon.

Liva – While doing my Erasmus year in Spain, I understood more than ever how awesome traveling is and how we should travel as much as we can, as far as we can and as long as we can. Also, I somehow managed to get a nickname “Liva la Loca”…
but that’s a story for another time.

Soldza – The Naughty Squirrel has been my second home ever since I started here.
I love listening to all the crazy travel stories, they inspire! Live, enjoy & play foosball, that’s what it all comes down to.
