Great Hostel - Best I have stayed in yet!! The staff is super friendly and very helpful as well as knowledgeable! Always very clean and the beer is cheap. The Hostel is also very well managed. I highly recommend the Red Emperor to anyone visiting Tallinn as it accommodates travelers from all walks of life - be it individuals looking... More

The hostel was quite social, we spend a good amount of time meeting fellow travelers in the lounge area, playing cards etc. The staff were extremely welcoming, giving us plenty of useful tips on what to see and do in Tallinn. The room was a 4-bed dorm. As it was a bit quiet, I (and my traveling companion) were given... More

It's tucked away off a street on the edge of Tallinn old town (very close) - go through an open entrance into a courtyard and if it's before 10pm go in the bar entrance at the end of the courtyard. It's maybe a bit off putting going up the bar stairs - grunge is the word. But once you get... More

Had a great stay, hostel is alternative but very clean. Has a hostel bar with super cheap prices and when they make the hostel quiet at night you can go to their public bar for karaoke and live bands. 2 different entrances which confused at the beginning but very effective for security at night. Go here to chill or party!

I had a lovely time during my stay at Red Emperor. Despite being the off season for the hostel, they still offered nightly deals and events. The location is brilliant for exploring Old Town or other aspects of the city. This place oozes hipster vibes, so if you are looking for a hip place to stay, I would recommend. The... More

Hostel is only two minutes walking to old town. I stayed in a private room, there was a warming machine in the room and it was so useful. Showers and toilets were super clean. My room was next to common area so it was noisy but at 11.30 pm they close there so it was quiet at night. only one... More

I was a little uneasy when I first walked in, but this ended up being my favourite hostel from my Europe trip, incredibly clean, very social atmosphere, staff were very helpful weather it was Daisy smiling at the front desk or Luke helping organize my days for me and an added plus the beer was always cold. I'll will definitely... More
