Like other reviewers have mentioned, the location of the hostel could not be better--the best reason to stay here. The hostel itself, however, was not very nice. I would give the hostel only 2 stars, but raised it to 3 due to the location. The staff were nice enough, and helpful. They showed me to my room and offered information... More

Best thing about Alur is that it is in a very central and quiet place in Old town. It only takes 4-5 minutes to walk to places like Town Hall or Oleviste Church. People who work in there are very friendly and helping. Also it seems like a popular place and even though we have been there in October there... More

The location of the hostel is so great: close to everything and Old Town itself is so beautiful. It was still sort of a low season in Tallinn when I visited, so there wasnt so many people staying in the hostel apart from a couple of bigger groups. The staff of the hostel was nice and facilities were good, had... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Alur hostel. The staff was helpful in every way, I could turn to them with whatever problem I had and they would do their best to help me. I was able to have complete privacy when I wanted it but could also chat with different travellers (in the common room). You'll be satisfied both... More

I absolutely loved my stay at this hostel. It was located right in the middle of the Old Town where all the culture and nightlife is. The staff made me feel at home from the moment I arrived and the hostel had everything I need. The common room is always filled with people and you will leave new friends :)

I enjoyed my stay here thoroughly, the staff were friendly and always up for a chat and very informative of things to do while in town. It had a very cosy below ground common area to hang out and eat. Beds and sleeping were quite good for a hostel and I experienced no trouble. The best bit is the location... More

This place is brilliant, by the time you checkout you'll have heaps of new friends from all over the world. The staff is super friendly and wild, they... More

I stayed in Alur hostel 2/2 times I've been to Tallinn, both visits were just great! Hostel is in a perfect location - heart of the old town, everything is close - bars, pubs, places of interest, etc. They organise pub crawls which are really worth to try, that's actually the best about it. Staff is very friendly and welcoming,... More
