Pros: The Dancing Eesti has a spacious kitchen with all the basic necessary conveniences. It has a very social vibe and I imagine that you could meet knew people very easily there if you felt like it. The Australian owner of the hostel is friendly and knows the city really well. The rooms are okay; each one has several outlets,... More

When checking out there was nobody at the reception and we were not returned the 30€ of the deposit for the keys. One month later and after writing dozens of emails, there is still no answer from the hostel...

The hostel has a great ubication and its price is the best in the whole city, it's placed right in the center and close to everything. Staff is helpful and... More

Cozy as home, perfect location and awesome people Everything was nice and clean. Love the big kitchen and a funky bar. Staff was really helpful, explaining the city and the local-pics where to go to eat etc. They also have really cool nightclub Studio just next doors.

Stayed for two nights while watching England v Estonia. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the bar was a great place to hang out and meet new people. It certainly has character about it and I've read lots of people complaining about cleanliness etc but it was exactly what you should expect if you are going to pay so... More

At first glance, this place is hard to find, a bit run down and kind of messy. I actually booked into a different hostel with the same check-in location because I didn't want the party hostel vibe the dancing eesti claims but when I checked in, the other hostel apparently isn't a hostel anymore? so they put me in a...

Wow, a lot of angry reviews. Today after speaking with staff and seeing how they removed a awful roommate of mine I'm happy to leave a review for this hostel. It's a classy little place in the coolest building. Come here when you wanna chill in a nice grand old building. It's alternative and you are greeted with a nice... More

Final review Haha The hostel is fine. It gets a lot of poor reviews on cleanliness but it's as clean like others I've been in. The hostels apartment is old so that does not help it's cause. Definitley more for weekly or monthly travel people. Cause you can just sit back and soak in tallinn at your own pace with... More
