The dorms are quiet and clean, the facilities rose above my... More

Good rooms and facilities in the hostel. The staff is really friendly and the pub-crawls they organize are awesome! You might not get a whole lot of sleep, but this hostel is one of my favorites so far. I traveled alone and was able to meet so many amazing new people.

Was a super nice experience at the end of my 10month stay in Estonia, after completing a volunteer job here. Met great people, party hard- exactly what I needed! Keep up the good spirit. Super nice workers and super clean! Could only recommend! :-)

One of the best hostels in Europe and just best in Estonia. Checked in late night, was super tired, but friendly staff brought me back to live with free shot of Vana Tallinn and small talk, offered activities for the next day and gave me some tips in Tallinn. Common area is huge with a lot of things to do,... More

In my next visit to Tallinn I will stay only here.)) Friendly staff, fun atmosphere, nice location, cleanliness and fast wifi. The old town is in walking distance. What else do you need for a great stay?)))

This hostel is great, lots of room, well set up well managed by Patrick, a great group of staff ensured everyone stay was fun, enjoyable and everyone saw what they wanted to see, even if you are not staying in the hostel the pub crawl they conduct is great to go on! So awesome I decided to move to Estonia.
