We stayed there for two nights. It is really well located in the centre of Tallin. I must say that when entering the building I expected an old place (a bit more of lighting in the entrance to the building won't hurt) but it turned out to be a cozy and modern hostel. The two girls in reception were super... More

Great place for budget travellers, super friendly staff, nice and clean rooms. Well located at the old town. It's maybe sometimes more noisier from the old town street below, but it's totally acceptable.

They had stated that there was a one day cancelation policy. I called 24 hours in advance in order to change the booking and not only... More

Staff of the hostel is friendly, speaks english and russian. Hostel is located in old town, very convenient. Room was clean. On the street near to hostel were street singers. We listened to them all evening. Breakfast was included. Pancakes were nice. Hostel offers tours in old town and other entertainment options. Free coffee and tea.

A nice little hostel located in the heart of the old town. It was clean, bright and welcoming with friendly and helpful staff. Our room was spacious and right next to the kitchen area which was handy for the complementary breakfast of breads & pancakes! However we could occasionally hear the chatter of other guests later in the evening. Overall... More
