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

Really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The staff where very helpful and kind to us when we arrived, they showed us places we could visit and the best place in the old town square where we could eat, although we did have to wait about 10 minutes while they got our beds ready but this was fine. The room... More

The location is right in the city center. The staff was really friendly and helpful. However, the bathrooms are not in very good shape and 'felt' a bit dirty. Everything else was pretty much average (exept the high price, but this was due to a stupid Robbie Wiliams concert that night).

Yesterday I had the unfortunate experience of showing up to this place after booking it a month prior on booking.com. When we first arrived at 12:30pm we were oddly told that no one is working reception but we could leave our bags there until someone arrived at 230pm - ok fine we went for a tour of the city and...
