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!!! :)

Basically a good, large, well-located hostel. I just thought I had been unlucky until I read some other comments here. At first I was undercharged despite my protestations, then the staff came a-knocking late at night, and wanted more money. My key-deposit also disappeared and then mysteriously reappeared. The staff do their best to be friendly and keep it positive,... More

Perfect location in the heart of Old Tallinn and friendly staff - what more to wish for? The rooms are comfortable, the bathrooms are clean, and you never stay in line for a shower. Clean bed sheets and towels are provided.

It has simple but clean rooms. The beds are regular but the bathrooms are big. This is a cheap hotel, so if you are on a budget you should check this place out. It has a big social area and a big kitchen with fridge and everything. It also has free WiFi all around the hotel.

Even though I have booked a private double room (not a bed in mixed dormitory!), I have found a naked man in my room in the evening. The girl at reception told me that I can't live alone in a room with five beds, no matter if I have paid 30 eur for that room, while a dorm bed price... More
