This was a wonderful hostel. The beds were cleans and comfortable. There was a well-stocked kitchen and a great common room to hang out in. The people who work here are so friendly and helpful. Just really nice people who are willing to help with anything. I can't recommend this hostel enough and look forward to staying here again the... More

It was cheap and nice! There were a few issues with the shower (very light flow and a bit cold) but it was nothing too bad. The room was great, really big with a nice view on the streets of the old town. The (upper) bunk beds lacked gates though and as someone who moves a lot at night I... More

I had a MacBook Air and a pair of headphones stolen from my private room (which was locked) sometime between 11:45 and 16:15 on Saturday, January 9th, 2016. The room was left locked by myself, and when I came back it was again locked, but my clothes were messed up and the belongings I mentioned above were gone. The inner... More

Good staff communication skill, hostel was reasonably neat and easy to locate. Kudos to the managers. The facilities within are good having a well equipped kitchen. Friends interested in a group journey should first consider this.

Hostel Alur is not a bad hostel, but the stay in it is not a good one. The hostel has paper thin walls, and every sound from the corridors or other rooms can be heard very well. It means that there is no privacy. It means that you should not expect to get much sleep. It seems that the standard... More

I've spent 3 nights in this hostel. It's located in the very centre old town Tallinn so you can easily reach everything (2 min to Raekoja plats, supermarket just round the corner). The room had a nice view of the street and it was very clean. The toilet and showers were also very clean, so that made me even happier!... More

the hostel is well located, rooms and showers are simple but efficent.There is a nice common area, a good equipped kitchen and the price is good for few days.From the hostel you can visit every part of the old town in a short time; they give you a map for seightseeing, markets, shops etc.

friendly staffs with good atomosphere. Good kitchen with well equipped furnitures. a bit loud when someone talking in the smoking area, but receptionists remind them keep quiet during the night, so before it gets noisier, they sort it out. Great information is provided, so everything is all good lol

We found this hostel as all other ones were full or very expansive. It's a good place to stay a night. It's pretty clean. Man on reception was very nice and helpful. It's situated in the heart of the city. The prices are not bad too. My first experience to stay at the hostel

Great location just off the town square in Tallinn. Friendly staff, enthusiastic cleaner, well equipped kitchen and within minutes of all the food outlets and touristy attractions. Not really walkable from the int bus station but taxi costs 8euro, but ferry terminals are much closer and you can walk out of Fat Margarets gate to them in 20 mins. Only... More
