The Hostel was established by an Australian (Dean) with Latvian heritage. In Australia Dean travelled on his motorbike with his cattle dog sitting on the petrol-tank. Slept under trees in the bush because he did not know hostels existed. Since discovering hostels Dean has opened the first non government hostel in Riga and Liepaja.

Funky Hostel was first established as Barons Hostel then it became Funky Hostel once Liva of Latvia joined up with Dean to spice up the offering. Funky Hostel provides secure relaxing and enjoyable funky digs for sensible travellers.

We also have a beach hostel in Liepaja, Latvia. Liepaja is the best city for travellers to visit if you want to experience the beach and coastal regions of Latvia.

We also established the Australian Chamber of Commerce in Latvia to further make use of our strengths for the advancement of people in Latvia.

By staying at Funky Hostel you assist us to continue contributing to the people in Latvia.

Dean has worked for years at the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga assisting students learn the opportunity of starting their own business.
