Conveniently located, close to the old town and the port to Helsinki. Clean rooms. We stayed in a twin-bed room with bathroom. The room was plain, without any kind of decoration. No elevator. The bed mattress was very poor.

First the positives: just outside the old town, free wifi, spacious common room and well equipped kitchen, 24hr reception, rooms and bathrooms clean, shower room in the basement very good with lots of showers, free bed linen and towel. Next the negatives: On a busy road so car noise constant, see-through curtains so very difficult to sleep in the summer... More

We chose the hostel only because they offer parking and asked to book one of the places when making a reservation. Reservation has been confirmed (!), but after arrival we were informed there is no space available... the comment we've got in the reception was: you can inform them that you need a parking space but you don't have it...

We were there for a couple of nights - we really liked the staff and the sauna facilities. The comon areas and kitchen were good as well. Location is quite handy between old town and transport conections. The downsides were - beds were very uncomfortable, windows were not well isolated and was noisy from the street. 1 toilet and 1...

This hostel is situated literally across the street from the Oldtown of Tallinn. While the comfort seekers might be somewhat disappointed, those looking for a convenient place to stay surely win - hostel is inexpensive, it has a shared kitchen and a sauna (which is fee-free for hostel quests 9-11am every day), free wi-fi (of course!)and the staff is very...

If you are looking for a place really close to Old Town, Fat Margaret is the place to stay. We stayed here for 3 nights. Initially we got a room on the second floor but then we shifted to the ground floor. I suggest taking a ground floor room with attached bathroom. Hostel has a big kitchen, we had some... More

I've been in Tallin on last week end (24th to 25th of January) I've slept at Fat's Margaret Hostel, it's a really good place, the prices are cheap, 16 euros for a single room, 32 euros for a double room and 11 euros for the dorm room, it's more expensive when it's the week end, I've paid 20 euros for...

Comparing to other hostels and even four star hotels in Tallinn, Fat Margaret has best atmosphere for my taste, and would recommend it to the alternative ones, who like old houses and creaky floors and are not afraid of little crabbiness. The rooms are cheap, and prices negotiable. We stayed in a private family room with double bed and shared... More

Dont be put off by the industrial outside appearance, this is a cosy and central hostel with wonderful extras like a free sauna and pool and a superb kitchen and common area. The rooms are basic but clean and quiet, and the location just across the road from Old Town is very convenient. It is also handy if you come... More
