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.

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
