I stayed for one night and I really liked it. Hostel is clean and toilets and showers are new. My room had big windows to the street. It's also very cheap:) if I ever need place to stay in Tallin I'm definitely coming again! (There was free tee and coffee available in the kitchen which was very nice)

This hostel is fairly priced and is located in Old Town. About a 15 minute cab ride from the airport. It is also near the ferry terminal. We had a private two bed room on the third floor. The building is secure. Codes to get in and out. The doors could use some oil - they were skweeky and loud.... More

This place has a nice mix of all ages of people and types of travelers. There is an open, cool central patio area to BBQ, as well as a cozy games and TV room to hang out in if the weather is not so great.

I came here with my boyfriend in July and it was our most positive hostel experience yet! The rooms were kept clean, the staff were very lovely and helpful, and it is situated right in the centre of the Old Town! The bathrooms are modern and clean, however the rest of the place has a cute medieval feel to it.... More

This old and funky hostel definitely needs a bit of maintenance - doors are creaky! But it is a great value and a great location. A definite bonus was the bike parking and luggage lockers in the back yard.

I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights and I love the way how the hostel operates. First, in terms of security although I find it insane to have several security codes in every doors. However, it also gives you some sense how they value your privacy and safety. Second, the receptionists are really very nice I have no problem... More
