Great, relaxed and happy vibe at this hostel. Chatty, helpful staff and a spacious and clean bathroom. The bar next door is both an excellent and a terrible idea though - I was there until 5am the day before I was due on an 11am bus to Riga. I took five shots at four am. Needless to say I did... More

Had so much fun staying at this hostel. It's a great place to meet people and the staff are really friendly and helpful, especially a girl called Aoife who showed us some great restaurants and some good sights. The hostels in a great location and always really clean. Would defiantly stay here again!

Really nice, clean, safe hostel with good beds, enough clean toilets & showers and excellent equiped kitchen. Enough public space to relax and/or to party. You feel the staff is driven and also very supportive. A warm spot in cold Tallinn. Near the old town, but surroundings are also a must see.

Just returned from a great weekend in Tallinn for my friends stag do. Originally booked the Red Emporer as a bit of a last resort, after leaving things a bit late to organise, but it turned out to be the best decision of the entire weekend. We originally entered through the bar, which is a bit... colourful and wondered what... More

Randomly stumbled upon Red Emperor and I was not disappointed! Cool people, even cooler people behind the bar, didn't see one crouch at the bar. A lot to do: play pool, beer bong, jenga ..., Epic time, shout out to Rosie and Liz !

The red emperor is easily one of the best hostels I have stayed in. The staff were friendly and knowledgable. The rooms clean and the beds comfortable. Ask about the tours / events as there is usually something entertaining to do. The location is great being just on the edge of the old town so most sights are just a... More

I've chosen this hostel because of the position which is perfect in the old city center. Rooms are clean, the common area very comfortable, the staff is very friendly and nice, the bar very good! And a beer costs 2 euro! In general I can suggest this hostel if you are traveling alone because you can meet a lot of... More

Arrived early on a monday morning to be greeted by cheery staff in this colourful unique looking hostel, got some rest and relaxed in the common room with loads of friendly staff and other travellers, got some excellent advice from the knowledgeable staff of good places to check out around tallinn before eventually being invited out for a "blindfolded" pub...
