Despite its odd name, Hostel ProfitCamp is not all about profit (or it wouldn't make its beds so cheap), but if you're stuck in a room with nine noisy foreigners, it might feel like summer camp all over again, though undoubtedly with more booze. Luckily, if you're willing to shell out a bit more cash, ProfitCamp also offers single, double, and triple rooms. Its amenities include: free Internet access, 24 hour check-in and reception with information for travellers, breakfast, linen and towels included, kitchen and common room, laundry, safe-deposit, luggage storage, airport pick-up, and a smoke-free atmosphere. However, its number one attractions are its location, right in the Old Town a short walk from St. Peters's Church, and a free ticket to the Roxy nightclub!

Where does the name come from? From the profit they make by sending customers to be robbed in Roxy nighclub?
We stayed in the hostel from Oct 12 till 15th and found it superb to be honest there was no noise whatsoever and we had a very pleasant and enjoyable 3 nights there , the staff were only to willing to help us with anything we needed and it was spotless clean regarding showers and toilet areas i would recomend it to anyone thats looking for cheap accomodation for a few nights
No doubt the ProfitCamp is well located. However it's really noisy cause of the guests who drink a lot.
There's also no common room, just some couches in each floor, which are pretty fast overcrowded.
The staff was quite unfriendly to non-latvian/russian guests.
All in all just a decent hostel.
your profitcamp description is somewhat inaccurate. it seems very expensive when you consider it is one of the noisiest places i've ever stayed. i feel you should warn potential customers that the staff are young and inexperienced and have no control over the noise levels of the guests and no apparent sanctions to take to reduce the noise. if you're not off your head on drugs then find somewhere else to stay
