Fantastic location of the hostel. It's within walking distance from bus stops and the ferry terminals. I found the staff really helpful and the facility was modern and clean. The common space downstairs was impressive and well organized. The room I stayed in was comfortable and clean. Best of all it was about €30 for the night. Other great benefit:... More

Couldn't recommend this hostel enough, the staff are so friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, the facilities are amazing and the communal area is well looked after and perfect to self cater in. I've stayed in this hostel every time I've visited Tallinn and will return on my next visit!

Well priced hotel near the oldtown and port of Tallinn. We have arrived to the hostel at 8 AM and we have got keys from our room immediately although the official check-in time starts at 1 PM. Free sauna every morning up to 11 AM. Internet connection was not stable, sometimes it was not working at all. In the whole... More

Fat Margaret's was a great place to stay. It was a short walk from the ferry port as well as the old town. Staff were really friendly. The room was basic, but clean and comfortable. I had a room on the ground floor and next to the main street, so the traffic noise was pretty loud. The Wifi was great.... More

It was a good hostel, a little bit quite, It is situated near the historic centre of the city and you can easily read it from the bus station. The staff was really nice. The kitchen is fully furnished, wifi worked without problems - so it has everything a sole traveller needs. Recommend it.

Excellent facilities including a Super equipped kitchen, free sauna, good WiFi. Nice and Clean rooms. The location is perfect very close to the old town (max. 10 min walk) and close to the harbor (5min walk). It's quite in general. Parking is available but they charge 5€/day, however there is a free parking place near by in the residential zone... More

Hostel is well located just a short walk from the old town and the ferry port (as well as airport busses). Hostel itself is very large and spacious with a communal kitchen area that was slightly lacking but perfectly usable. The common area had a ping pong table and a suana which is open in the morning up to 1100.... More

I stayed one night at Fat Margaret in may 2016 in a female dormitory which was very spacious, with a locker and a towel. The Common room was nice, and there is a sauna/tiny pool available in mornings (I did not use them). Everything was clean with a helpful staff. Only thing is that in the next few months there...

Fat Margaret is located in a short distance from all sights in Tallinn. The private rooms are basic, but enough for what you need for a short stay. Quite warm rooms as well. However, if you want to socialize this may not be a place for you. There is a common room indeed, but it is very quiet and everyone... More
