This is a fantastic hostel if you're looking for something cheap, central and comfortable. The open kitchen area allows to prepare and eat meals without being on top of anyone. There's a supermarket right across the road. They have board games and a little bar in the common area it's great! They also have a bar with organised events. Our... More

I stayed here for one night, and it was a great experience! All of the staff is super helpful and friendly, telling me about all of the best places to visit and about a great free walking tour. It was extremely reasonably priced, and the bar that it is above has great happy hour specials. My room was next to... More

Clean and cozy facilities, located a few minutes walk from Viru värav. Cheap beer during happy hours every evening. Rooms are spacious, so you will not feel cramped even in the 8-bed dorm. Bring a long power cable though, if you want to charge your devices from the top bunk. Look for staff hosted events. When I stayed, we went... More

I've been here on a study trip for two nights. The staff is very friendly and good. The place just looks very nice, the rooms are neat and the breakfast we got was the best I ever had in a hostel. I would recommend this place to anybody who is planning to travel to Tallin

Opposite a supermarket which was handy for making breakfast / dinners. Had everything you would expect and more, nice rooms, great lounge area, good kitchen, wonderful bar cheap... More

We were playing a gig at the bar next to the hostel and stayed one night. The rooms and staff were nice. Even though the party went on in the bar after I left I couldn't hear any noise during the night in our room except my band mates snoring. But you can't blame the place for that ;) The... More

Very close to Hotel Viru (KGB museum) - short walk to the Soviet Prison. Staff here were excellent. Friendly but not in your face, helpful (booked a taxi... More
