We stayed at Fat Margaret's in July for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay, this hostel is about a 10-15 minute walk from the ferry terminal so easy to get to. When we arrived it was quite late and the receptionist was really helpful pointing us in the direction of a place to get something to eat. I highly... More

Stayed here for two night a few weeks ago. The hostel is in perfect location just across the road from old town. The check in and out was fast and efficient. All the hostel staff members were very friendly and helpful. We had a double room with private bathroom. The room was in the basement and only with see through... More

I liked this hostel. It was a good location. About 15 minute walk from the ferry terminal and about ten minutes to old town square. The hostel was clean and tidy. Clean bedding and towels were provided and out room was spacious and looked nice. The staff answered my questions. They were not overly friendly though, but all in all... More

Well, I'm not too sure why this place has 4 stars... We stayed in two different rooms in fat Margaret's. A private room and a dorm. The bed in the private room is just a mattress and is the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in my life. The downstairs communal area and the pool(sauna) area are the nicest thing... More

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
