The hostel is situated in the heart of the old town, you can reach all the good things in a few minutes. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were okay, like in all the other hostels I´ve stayed in my live. The bathroom could have been a little more cleaner but all in all it was also...

The best thing is the location, right in the heart of the Old Town of Tallinn. The dorms are big and the staff are helpful. It has the very basic things to stay to sleep and then enjoy the rest of the city. Plus, they offer a range of activities. The price is very cheap.

Am currently here and have been here for three days so far. Slap bang in middle of everything so there's that. Convenience store right round the corner (Baltic booze yes we do!) Most of all, a shoutout to the wonderful staff that made this hostel a stay to remember: Polina, Jordy, Turku and dear Sanne, you will always have a...

the rooms are very big and very clean, the staff is very receptive. The only problem was the kitchen compared to the rooms is not so clean and organized. But for the price that we pay was nice, very cheap and the location amazing.

Lot's of space, good pictures on the walls. And right in the center! Everything interesting is nearby and a location is quiet enough. I would recommend this hostel for big companies who want to save money. Not too much toilets but enough.

Very friendly staff, they have recommendations and advice. I couldn't check in before 14 but they let me keep my bags there. Other hostel visitors were also friendly and into the travel life apart from one weird dude who shared my room. But I reckon the staff couldn't do anything about him. There is some free food, free coffee and...
