Fat Margaret's is in a great location, being walking distance to the old town, tourist attractions, and shopping areas, a short tram ride from the international bus terminal, and less than ten minute's walk to the ferry terminal. It's an easy place to find with the instructions they've posted too. The hostel itself appears quite run down from outside, but... More

Right where you want to be in Taliinn. Old place with lots of character near the water. A short walk to many sights of what Tallinn has to offer. The only long walk would be to the annual beer festival, but that's still a great way to see Tallinn.

I stayed there 1 night, in 6-shared room, with 4 other women, on bunk beds. Clean bed linen and room also comfortable. Clean kitchen, bathrooms and common room. I would say, one small "-" was that, I slept in the room close to the one of the road, but it was not that bad. Very nice and helpful service. I... More

From outside the hostel looks like a creepy and ruined house. Rooms are ok but tiny reception and corridors are in permanent works.the only positive thing it is really near of the old town. It also really noisy!

We stayed at Fat Margaret's for one month and loved it. They had the friendliest staff I have had in any hostel and always happy to help with directions. Located within a 3 minute walk to the famous Old Town, this is a great place to base yourself to explore Tallinn in a comfortable and affordable way. Our room was... More

It's a very nice hostel in a very good location, with big and clean rooms and friendly staff. The kitchen is very big and recently renovated, and the sauna with a tiny swimming pool is free for all the guests every day from 9 to 11.

Location is good. You can reac old town center by few minutes walk. In front of the hostel there is a tram stop and you can reach distant parts of the city. Staff is great. In the entrance there is locker room. Rooms are clean and comfortable. You can also rent a bike if you want. Higlhy recommended hostel.

Perfect hostel, recently restored and big and confortable rooms. Dinig room well done and big common room with a computer... and the free sauna in the morning was awsome. Love it! I recommend it, expecially for the good position, 5 minute walking to the city centre, near to the supermarket, restaurants and transports. Good staff, young and well prepared.
