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

Despite that the hostel looks dangerous and a bit scary from outside, it looked nice from inside. As I visitet Tallinn just to get some party spots so I was happy to fall in any kind of bed at the early morning. The room was simple, clean and warm. Shower and toilet were also clean, equipped with the basic things... More

Not a bad choice, but personally wouldnt stay there again. Unfortunately, first impression was quite bad. We checked in early on October 1st and the girl working was horribly rude, slamming stuff around while huffing and puffing. I finally asked her what was wrong and she snapped "it is too early, only 7am"..she was quite angry we showed up so... More

Great place to stay at, very close to the Tallin Ferry. The room was comfortable, clean and surprisingly quiet. The staff was nice and friendly, very helpful. The bathrooms are clean and there is a huge dining room in the basement with fridges and all cooking amenities. This place is a rarity these days, highly recommend for anyone travelling on... More

Nice hostel near city of Tallin. The lot of museums and Tallin city center is near. Easy access to Tallin ferry terminal A, B, D with connections to Stocholm, Helsinki, St.Peterburg, etc. The port for ferries to Aegna, Nissar and other pretty Estonian island is near too. Kitchen with possibility to prepare your own food is lacated in the basement.... More

Just wow. That were our first words when we saw our twin-room with private shower. Although the exterior of the building doesn't look so charming but spacious room made us love the place. And location! It's a few minutes walk from old town. When you leave the hostel you can actually see the old city wall. Kitchen is just superior.... More

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.
