Extremely cozy. Very friendly staff, and very interesting people. Felt like part of a family after 3 days there. Made friends who I am still in contact with! The location was perfect, free breakfast was provided, staff and visitors all socialized together. It didn't feel like a business, but like a temporary home. Visiting Estonia in January seemed like a... More

The staff is nice and helpful. The location is perfect, but very hard to find the entrance. Everyone is requested to take off the shoes before into the hostel. Although everything is fine, there are so many flies in the kitchen! There is supermarket nearby too.

This place was really great. It's about a 2min walk to the old town and not far from the harbour(we came in on the ferry from Helsinki). There is a big common room with the reception and beer and drinks available from the fridge. Kitchen was also decent and rooms were fairly spacious as well. One of the staff members... More

Ideal for solo travelers. Very sociable people and close to everything/old town. The city itself isnt a large one. They organise pub crawls and other events where you can have a lot of fun. They sell cheap beers.

Hostel was run by fantastic people who were very friendly and accommodating. This hostel is linked with another-The Monk's Bunk (Pub Crawls begin here) which is no longer than a 10-15 min walk on the other side of the Old Town. A clean venue with good, chilled atmosphere. What more could you ask for? Yes they do have free WIFI!... More

Great hostel with helpful staff, and they're also very friendly. Great city, great hostel, great staff, couldn't be better! If I visit Tallinn again I'll be sure to stay once more here, they have markets and restaurants really close, and since it's inside the old town it's also near a lot of tourists attractions.
