FAQ Riga - SHED Co-living

Booking

  • If you want to make a reservation online, you are redirected to your bank to make a payment of a deposit.  A deposit will be calculated according to your staying term (usually it is equal to 2 months of accommodation fee). The deadline to make this transaction is usually 5 days, however, it can be shorter if the room demand is very high. By paying the deposit you can rest assured that the room is reserved for you.

  • A full deposit (if there are no unpaid bills or damages to the interior of your room) will be transferred to your bank account within 14 days after your check-out.

Payments

  • Let’s dissect the bill together.

    Monthly payment includes: water, heating, electricity, waste disposal, Wi-Fi, access to the gym, cleaning of the common spaces, handyman services for SHED‘s equipment failures or other daily issues.

    Services that you have to pay for additionally: self-service laundry, room cleaning by request, room changing by request, snacks and drinks in vending machines, printing, parking.

  • Monthly payments can be made via the SHED app or a bank transfer on the last day of each month. Monthly payments have to be made in 5 days.

  • If the system does not receive your payment on time, your entrance key will be automatically blocked. If you have any troubles or personal issues and cannot pay the accommodation fee in time, please inform the SHED administration in advance.

  • We need to deep-clean, sanitize and prepare your room for a new resident, so yes, we charge a cleaning service fee per person which will be set in your agreement.

Agreement

  • During the school year, the minimum lease period is five months, and the agreement can be extended at any time. A shorter lease is available only during the summer or if we have availability during school year.

  • Yes, you can terminate your contract earlier, but the deposit is not refundable if the contract is terminated before the lease period is over. If you want to check out earlier and pay all the monthly accommodation fees based on your lease term, the deposit is refundable.

Check-in

  • As rooms are generally reserved out until the next tenant moves in, sometimes it’s difficult to organize a visit for the future tenant. Please ask for more photos of the specific room type by e-mail instead or check the 360 tour of spaces in our website.

  • You can check-in earlier than your agreement states only if you receive an availability confirmation from the SHED administration. Please make sure to contact us before arrival.

  • If you need to arrive outside the reception work hours, please let us know the exact day and approximate time of your arrival. We will explain the self-check-in procedure step by step to make your check-in as simple as possible.

  • Mon - Fri: 9 AM – 6 PM
    Sat - Sun: 10 AM – 4 PM  (calls & emails only)

Rooms

  • Each room, despite its size, is fully equipped & furnished!

    All rooms have: a private bathroom (with a WC, a shower & a sink), a private kitchenette (with a fridge-freezer, an induction stove, microwave and all utensils, dishes & cutlery), a set of furniture (a bed with a 90x200 cm or 120x200 cm mattress, a wardrobe, a studying desk, a chair, etc.).

    P. S. Bedroom & bathroom textiles (pillows, blankets, bed linen and towels) are available for purchase or rent in the SHED app while booking the room or at reception anytime later.

    For more details on a specific room and how it’s equipped, please read the room description.

  • As long as you can return it to its original state on check-out (meaning no drilling, no paint on the walls or attaching non-removable stickers), you can always add extra furniture or other decorations to your interior.

  • Our handyman is always on hand if something in your room breaks or doesn’t work. Just send us an e-mail or use your SHED app and describe the problem. We will try to fix it ASAP.

  • Please contact reception. If we have any other possible room to offer, we will do our best to find the right room for you.

Living

  • Our reception team is always on hand to accept your parcels and sign for items so you never miss a delivery. Please check for your parcels and letters on the post shelf near reception. Make sure you enter the correct name, surname, personal phone number and address when placing an order.

  • We love animals, but unfortunately, pets are not allowed to live in the SHED with you. 

  • The guests  (no more than 2 at a time) are allowed to visit the room and common spaces only by informing SHED administration in advance. They will be asked to show their IDs and be registered in guest book.

    Guests can stay at the premises until midnight. NO parties and big gatherings are allowed.

  • Yes, you can have a guest stay over with the administration’s permission given in advance. The guest must show his/her ID and be registered in guest book.

  • We don’t allow smoking inside the SHED, but you’re free to smoke outside the premises or in a designated smoking area.

  • SHED has a private parking place with a limited number of spots and it’s available for an additional fee. If you are interested, please contact reception for more information. 

  • Safety and comfort of our tenants is without a doubt the #1 priority for us. Thus, the building is surveilled 24/7 and we have an on-site staff & security team that will make you feel protected at all hours of the day. All the entrances and most of the common areas are monitored by CCTV cameras 24/7, each common space and private room can only be entered with a magnetic keycard or your SHED app.

  • Despite the 24/7 CCTV cameras, there is a security company which is reacting to dangerous situations, such as fire alarms, physical conflicts, etc.

    We also have a house manager who can help residents (when the reception is closed) with emergency questions, such as locking themselves out.
