Very friendly receptionists! A lot of common space and easy to get into conversation. There is care taken to keep sleeping areas silent (although it's not always easy to do, because of noisy residents in smoking area). Sleeping in dorm is kind of comfortable (although snoring of few others might be disturbing and makes it a little hard to sleep).... More

I booked for 5 night, It's really clean, friendly stuff.. The only bad point is that you cannot use the sockets in the room.. Which is so weird.. But apart from that I really liked, is so cheap, in the middle of the old town! So if you're not obsessed with recharging your digital devices... I recommend!!

Friendly service, just the hostel lacks sockets near the beds to charge phone and laptops. Nonetheless, the hostel has a good location. I would go back, especially to try their travel services. thanks!

Tallinn is one of the most beautiful places I have ever had the... More

I work at another hostel with my boyfriend, so we know what to expect out of a ten euro a night crash pad. However, this hostel exceeded our expectations. Not only were the rooms adorable, the bathrooms were clean, good wifi and all that. But most of all the staff members were tight. Everyone who worked there was awesome. All... More

The hostel was a 2 min. walk to the center square and the staff were VERY helpful, they gave us a complete low down of everything to do in the city. I stayed in a dorm room, it was pretty big with a bunch of bunk beds and two couches, tons of room.

The staff was attentive all the time and I was in a big shared room, so I expected some noises and people coming back late after party, but I did also expect the staff would be in charge of control the noise. However, there was a room with music on, shouts and party inside until late at night and nobody... More

We travelled in a group of four and were quite pleased with our visit. Great location, nice staff. Toilets and showers were nicer upstairs. Could have been a bit cleaner and silent in the middle of the night but still acceptable. Surely worth of the money.

Great hostel with a perfect location near the Tallinn's city center and friendly stuff. :) The rooms had everything that you need for a short trip: shelves where you can put your belongings, comfortable beds, good wi-fi and so on... It was a pleasure to stay here!!! :)
