    Good relaxation

    “We went to this sauna in a group of 3 friends. We tried the sauna, infrared sauna and jacuzzi. Also liked the wide range of drinks and the prices. Bonus: you can watch gay films in 2 rooms for free! It was fun!“

  3. K Karlis

  4. M Miguel

    • N Nicola

      “Cosy place, clean and tidy, good prices for drinks(including alcoholic beverages). Good music too. Our company had fun time.
      Also movies displayed on two screens on the premises. To look - no additional payment needed.“

  5. K Karlis
    Good times...

    “Went for the first time. Disappointingly quiet for a Saturday night, but good times - met a very passionate older Latvian guy. The facilities are limited but clean and well maintained. The service was attentive.“

  6. A Aleks

    “Malo posetitelei, sliskom mnogo sveta, griaznota v temnoi komnate.“

  7. Алекс

    “Были с друзьями на прошлых выходных. Понравилось. Нормальные, для центра, цены в баре на алкоголь. Акуратно, приятная атмосфера. Остались довольны посещением.“

  8. M Michael
    Stay away!!!

    “Terrible experience. Almost empty. Only 3 guys, including the attention man!

    Facilities are terrible. Jacuzzi was cold and x-ray room didn't function. You had only the sauna: small and a little cold. Riga deserves more!“

  9. J Jan
    Nice weekend!

    “Convenient location. The staff knows English, is polite and courteous. It was cozy and comfortable. We will come again.“

    Theft happens here

    “I was here on November 4. This has to be my worst experience so far.

    First of all, while the entry is relatively cheap, the facilities are small and unimpressive, with little room for privacy and cruising. Most clients are mature guys. The jacuzzi is fine, but using the sauna or the infrared cabin for 10 minutes has an additional price, which is enough of a red flag.

    My main problem is theft. A bill of 50 euros was stolen from my wallet, which, by the way was stores inside the locker room along with my clothes. The key was always attached to my arm and I never lost sight of it. I realized I was robbed when I checked my wallet while riding the bus.

    I am sure someone that was not me opened the locker. That explains the fact that my belt fell away from my pants when I was about to get dressed. This is not likely to happen, my belts usually stay around the trousers when I take the pants off and hang them. At that moment I did not give it much thought, but later I realized someone was searching my pockets with a hurry. “

  11. J Jannis
    Small, smokey, loud music

    “I was there on the 3rd of June. I've been in several gay saunas all around Europe in the last 20 years, I had never seen such a bad one: small, unclean, full of smoke, all though visited from only three persons except my self, extremely loud and unbearable music, no place to have a private moment with someone (in the unlikely case you would find someone inspiring you to do so with)...“

  12. N Niklavis
    Good experience

    “Was there on 28th April. Liked service and attitude. Good bar with excellent choice of drinks. Amenities were half full, so there was no problem to chill in Finnish sauna. Overall - good "bang for the buck."“

  13. N Name

    “Went there on 15 April. Completely empty except 1 weird guy.“
