at first i only planned to stay for a few nights, but due to an amazing atmosphere and great location of the hostel, it quickly turned into more! As soon as I walked through the door and was greeted by friendly staff, I could tell this was not like any other hostel I have stayed in. Everyone who works there... More

This hostel is in a great location, the dorms are clean and comfortable and the bathroom was massive. The real winner is the staff; extremely friendly, fun and experts on the sights, museums and restaurants/bars/clubs around town. Highly recommended. Carmen, Australia

Me and my friends were here for two nights on a recent trip and could not of been happier. The room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom was shared but good. The common room was good for meeting the other guests and we enjoyed a few drinks there and some competitive games on the fussball table. The building itself is nice... More

This hostel is such a good place to spend some nights. It's a cosy house with lovely rooms. The people are very friendly, the livingroom is great (I love the rules of the hostel, hanging on a paper by the bar) and a great place to meet other travelers for a beer or a game. The pubcrawl is also very... More

The rooms are nice. Ours had an en suite although the shower door was replaced by a shower curtain and the toilet seat was broken. Atmosphere was casual and home like but I wasn't very impressed with some staff members. One male brought multiple girls to one of the dorms and had loud sex throughout the night. I got no... More

This hostel is located in old town, 10-15 mins walk from ferry terminal. The hostel sign is very small, just a A4 paper size on the door. The room is ok and spacy but quite dark. Staff is very friendly and informative. They provide tips & tricks to stay in Tallinn. There's karaoke night around 10 pm. *** Need to... More

This was a great hostel. I was doing a solo Euro trip for my 30th birthday and my birthday proper came during my stay here. It was one of the best times I've ever had. The location was convenient. The room was nice and comfortable. The staff were awesome. Let's not beat around the bush, this is a party hostel.... More

Most friendly staff I've met to date. Extremely inclusive in all activities hostel or other. Highly recommend this hostel so central and they know the town well. Drinks are super cheap and happy hour is for two hours! Even in the slow season this hostel is the best one I've stayed in yet. Dave

The hostel was very warm (we were there in late Nov), the staff were helpful and friendly throughout our brief stay. It's definitely suited to the younger traveler but we didn't feel out of place and were not pressured into partying or playing drinking games (as suggested in previous reviews). It was warm, clean, and spacious, the beds were comfortable... More
