Excellent location in central Old Town, friendly staff and a VERY cheap stay (the receptionist even gave me a free towel). The décor is 'bohemian', if I edge towards optimism, but ultimately the hostel is quite shabby with holes in my bed linen and generally dirty rooms and bathrooms. The locks were difficult to work and if it wasn't for... More

We had a booking for our first night in Tallinn and arrived to hostel after 20.00. We had a hard time finding the hostel outer door because there is no sign whatsoever at the alley. Ok, eventually we managed to get in and the place looked dirty and very bohemish. After we got our beds and linen we settled in... More

Cheap, cheap and cheap that's about it. Ok, the services was average. Dirty and still wet sheets. Very poor indoor air, the room smelled like old cheese. It seems no one cares about cleaning over there. Not going there again.

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...

I've already stayed at this hostel more than once. Every time I come it looks better and renovated. Now there're more showers and toilets, floors had been repaired as well. 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...
