After doing lots of research I thought that this would be an excellent place to stay. The staff were friendly but didn't provide a lot of info- go to the info centre for that they were great, but the staff were a bit ambivalent about everything, there's a difference between being lax and a bit slack. Our door didn't lock... More

I left the Monk's Bunk with mixed feelings. I had a great time, and the hostel has everything one would expect in terms of facilities and location. But there are some negative aspects too, the most prominent one being their pubcrawls. Here they are advertised as free and daily, on posters in the hostel as daily, but in reality they... More

Spent a weekend here in June 2014. The Monk's Bunk is simply a great hostel. The location's great, just next to the Old Town. The staff is awesome and they really contribute to a great vibe in the hostel. The pub crawls are good as well, and I was pleasantly surprised that they brought us to a decent night club... More

The hostel has a very cool atmosphere and it is incredibly easy to meet people in the common area. Staff is great! They are super friendly and helpful and they offer a few very good tours. Kitchen, bathrooms, dorms, hang out areas are nice and always clean!

Nice hostel in a really nice location near the city center. It s a place that groups and single travellers can stay. It is a party place since every night they organize free pub crawl. Toilets werent enough since one floor had to share 3 toilets and 3 bathrooms.

Spent 5 days here with friends. Had the whole dorm to ourselves which was lovely. Communal area was good had pool tables, sofas and could grab a beer and chill. Only small annoyance was that you had to walk through the communal area for the showers. Most people took clothes with them to the shower. I received some strange looks... More

Just returned from a long weekend in Tallinn staying at Monk's Bunk. It's a hostel so you know what you are getting, but put luxury aside, what better way to meet people and be so close to the city center. The staff were wonderful! Extremely friendly and helpful...always making sure everyone was doing okay and enjoying them self. Really enjoyed... More

I've been there the last week. The only good thing about it, was the kind stuff and the location. It was totally dirty, there was no toilet paper after a while and they also forced you to take out your shoes so to have a clean place, but it was disgusting. The bathrooms were a mess and there was a... More

This is a fantastic hostel! It has a great location, is very clean, a spacious common area with reasonably priced drinks and the staff really go out of their way to ensure you have a good time here. They work tirelessly to ensure you have the best possible time in Tallinn, especially Kongo who showed us around on the pub... More

Top shagger has been all around the world, and without a doubt this is the best hostel i have been too. Staff could not have been better. Communal area was outstanding and full of birds in the evening. Sauna was fantastic, and there must be something in the water as Top Shagger goes 3/3 nights...oi oi
