Very good hostel, we stayed in a 3 bed room and it was quite clean and comfortable. Close to everything. The bathroom was outside the room but it was not a problem. I enjoyed the quietness of the place

This hostel really was a let down. It is not well maintained, the noise from other guests is imposing and the toilet and washing facilities really are from a by gone age. If the best they can offer is the thrill of a pancake breakfast then this would sum up the standard of this hostel. On the upside Herta the... More

I stayed one night at the twin double room. It included two bed's and a writing table. All good by this far. Facilities are good otherwise but when the night comes it can be bit cold in the room. The plus was that the hostel staff warned me about that and offered a possibility to an extra heater, so that... More

This hostel is great for the price. The hostel was pleasantly quiet. We slept in a dorm, squeaky beds, but It was big and comfortable. The staff were incredibly friendly and gave us all kinds of information - where we should go, where to eat, what to do, etc. Small but equipped kitchen, comfortable common area, plenty of space to...

Knight House is great if you want a quieter environment but does not preclude you from the entertainments of Tallinn. The staff are very friendly and for those wanting a lively evening, are very well known at the other hostels allowing you to join in the entertainments there. Although in the middle of Tallinn Old Town and convenient for all... More

This place ticked all the boxes: WiFi good, staff very helpful re places to eat and drink, and offered to make tour bookings for us. Pancakes for breakfast were very tasty! The building was clean and tidy, and I liked the fact that even a damp floor in one of the bathrooms was explained as being ongoing, which at least... More

A quirky, creative and friendly atmosphere. We had a twin room which was very spacious and nicely decorated, though next to the front door (with thin walls) which was a bit noisy at times. The breakfast was adequate with cereal, bread, jams and pancakes. Free tea's and coffee's was very nice. The kitchen is well equiped for making your own... More

Knight House was cozy and much more like a bed and breakfast than a hostel! The location was right in the old city, the pancake breakfast was tasty, and the whole atmosphere was inviting. This is not a party hostel; just know that going into it. If you are a solo traveler hoping to meet tons of other travelers and... More

I visited Tallinn in December and stayed in Knight House with friends. I would definitely recommend the hostel to other travellers. The biggest plus is the fantastic location. The hostel is within the walls of the old town, and just a short walk away from the major attractions. It's only a 20 minute walk to the harbour as well, if... More
