“unexpected yet wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

To be honest right away- I wouldn't have gone there if not a friend had recommended Euphoria to me, because I usually stay in other kind of places than hostels. But I would have missed out the best part of my Tallinn experience.
Apart from the fact that it is a really nice hostel in terms of amenities with clean, cosy bunk beds and a spacious bathroom with everything you need, a decently equipped kitchen and a cosy living room, it is the people there that make it special. They give you a feeling of coming home to some good old friends you haven't seen in a while and make your stay in Tallinn memorable.
I will be absolutely happy to come back the next time I am going to be in this beautiful little city and I am already looking forward.

I read all the great reviews from here and hostelworld.com and based my hostel choice on them. A mistake. I've stayed in tens of hostels around Europe and Asia and this was one of the worst.

I have to say the situoation is great - 2 min walk from the old town on a peaceful sidestreet.

We had private room for for people (no ensuite). The room was clean but it was EXREMELY minimalistic, grey and dismal. I was not looking for luxury and as i mentioned I have seen a bunch of different kind of hostel rooms but here the atmosphere was like in the old Soviet Union. It was... Well, just miserable. The common area is ok but not as nice as it looks like on the pictures. The one good thing was that the bathroom on our floor was not the same Soviet Union style as the room (and everything else). It was new and clean!

Hi There,

Its great you were aware of our Soviet look :-) Our Hostel is a budget destination for Backpackers and Adventurers. If you were disappointed then maybe we were not clear enough in our description when you first booked and that's why you were disappointed. ~ We will review it to avoid any confusion in future .

Thank you for recognising our cleanliness which is where we go to great efforts to make up for our lack of flashy decor. Our hostel has been established by artists and musicians so our start up capital was our ability to create something interesting out of the 2nd Hand and recycled materials of an ex Soviet era.

Our common room's magic comes from being social with one another and we think that perhaps you missed out on this while you were there. We try our best to welcome and bring everyone together but perhaps it was something else you were looking for.

We are always striving to make things better and would love to welcome you back to see how we are growing.

Wishing you the best experience of life,

From all of us in Euphoria.

Visited the place in May 2014 with three friends. It's located near the Old Town in a quite small street without any noisy crowds. The rooms are pretty minimalistic but have anything you need for sleeping or resting. The only downside is the shower and toilet in the hall - it's one per the floor.

The personnel is EXTREMELY positive and helpful, always ready to answer any questions and just to participate in friendly chat. All of them were very friendly and tried to help in any way they could - booking the taxi, consulting with the map and so on.

The interior of the lounge zone is a special asset as it boasts lots of music instruments - guests can go there and chillout or play. The receptionist's desk is located near the mini-bar - must recommend the local dark beer - it's really nice.

Overall quality-price of the hostel is 10/10. Definitely would stay there in possible future trips to Tallinn.

Euphoria stands out among some other hostels I've visited by its cosy homelike atmosphere - it's more like visiting an old friend than staying in the hostel kind of experience. Hostel is located at the heart of Tallinn and yet it is very private and quiet. I recommend Euphoria to anyone who is interested in exploring Tallinn with reasonable budget yet values comfort and beauty.

Me and my friend stayed in Tallin for a couple of days and stayed at Euphoria. We were welcomed warmly on arrival by the receptionist who was extremely helpful. The hostel was clean and ideally located. It had a homely feel with a chilled out ambiance. If your looking for a hostel to stay look no further! However only one shower room and for a hostel this size and quality there should be more than one.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We stayed for 2 nights and the place was perfect. The staff were so friendly, going out of their way to help us find good stuff to do whilst we were there (ie live music) and guiding us on the best to see. They are all travellers and like minded, so that really helps. A couple of great recommendations, which led to some very good trips - the old deserted Prison.
The room (double with shared bathroom) was great. clean and bright with a hanging rail and drawers so you didn't have to live out of a case!
The atmosphere is lovely - really chilled but with plenty of entertainment - the musical instruments, a big drop down screen and projector and a book swap and games. Kitchens are perfectly adequate with tea and coffee to help your self to, and museli and cereal for breakfast.
Simple, great value, friendly and overall brilliant.
