I slept at Fat Margaret's twice, taking a ferry to Helsinki between my two stays. The hostel is located a short walk from the ferry port, a short walk from the train station (which has wonderful markets), and across the street from the entrance to Tallenn's classic Old Town. It's also just a hundred yards from a tram stop. I couldn't think of a better location. The building (dated back to 1912, I was told) is old style European stone and brick and feels like a millionaires mansion at a surprisingly budget price. There are numerous bathrooms and showers. There's a full size sauna and cooling pool open to all every morning from 9-11 am. The kitchen and dining space is modern and designed so several people can cook there at the same time. The staff is friendly and helpful.

【優點 pros】 1. 房間:入住雙人房,房間空間夠大,可以攤開行李平放地下。床也很舒服。Double room is large enough to put my luggage and stuff. Bed is comfortable. 2. 位置:住宿不在古城範圍裡,但也只是對面馬路而已,非常方便,還有好處是可以不用拖著行李走石板街。而且離碼頭很近,步行大約十分鐘;住宿外馬路就有電車站,可以到達巴士站。 Although it isn't located inside the old town, it's still near (and you don't have to cross the road in old town with luggage). It's 10 mins walk from the Pier. If you have to go to the Tallinn Bus Station, you can take the tram right in front of the hostel, which is very convenient for transition between cities. 3. 員工很友善,願意幫忙,而且櫃臺是24小時。 Staff are nice and helpful. The counter is available 24/7 【缺點 cons】 1. Wi-fi有時會斷線。 Wi-fi sometimes doesn't work. 2. 房間不隔音,有些住客凌晨兩三點還在大,叫,把我吵醒了。The room is not soundproof. Woke up by other guests who talked so loudly at 2 or 3am.

Stayed at this hostel with a friend to explore Tallinn. Great base, very close to Old Town to explore. Room was okay, small but acceptable. Stayed in a private twin room, shared bathroom - bathroom was close by the room, but okay. Doors were very squeaky and loud at night. There was a large common room, we didn't use it, but seemed comfortable enough.

Hardly to believe is a hostel, I booked a private room with bathroom and it was very spacious and great sleep quality. The location is perfect, is a few steps from the city walls and the old town - you can walk everywhere and there is bus and tram stops just across the street.
