Tabinoya locates in the hearth of Tallinn's Old Town. It's easy to miss as it is two apartments transformed in to a hostel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. As hostels usually, you have to share the bathroom and common areas with others but this is great way to see new people. We met great people from Spain, Manhattan and Kazakstan. Breakfast is cereals and coffee but you can eat outside or bring your own breakfast there.

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed. Staffs were really friendly and helpful, answering all my questions. The bedroom and common room are so comfortable. It was quite at night and very nice atmosphere to sleep. The price is really cheap compare to the quality of the hostel. Centrally located at the heart of the old town, walking distance to the tram and ferry, 1 minute walk to old town square and so many good restaurants near by.

Room Tip: The old town has many turns so be prepared with direction

I very much liked my stay here. The hostel is very well looked after and organized. The building itself is very authentic and even has a sauna!:) Location is superb, but the most important thing, what makes it a great hostel is welcoming and skillful staff.

Tabinoya hostel is a splendid, small and cosy hostel occupying th top two floors of a town house right in the heart of Old Tallinn, quite literally 1 minute from the town square. With wooden floors, authentic wooden beams, and a charming interior decor, the hostel oozes charms and character. The proprietor is friendly and recommended several good restaurants, both nearby and also ones somewhat off the well-beaten tourist track.
Downsides: very few, except perhaps for the backpacker seeking an all-night party atmosphere as this hostel is on for the quiet and laid-back type - stag-night participants should apply to the many hostels elsewhere.

A newly renovated hostel on the top floors of a several hundred year old building, right in the old town. Cosy kitchen and common room, old oaken pillars throughout all the rooms, gleaming clean showers and restrooms and a great view from the dorm. When first getting there, ignore the derelict door of the house and the smell in the staircase -- this is a real gem, and situated conveniently between the railroad station and most sights in the old town.

The Tabinoya Hostel is a lovely, cosey place in the heart of the medieval city centre of Tallinn. We stayed in a double bedroom for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay a lot. The staff is very friendly & helpful, the whole hostel is clean, very new and quiet (when needed :) )! The "shoes off" approach makes it even more like staying at a friend's place than a hostel (extra slippers for unprepared ones for free)!

Breakfast is basic (bread + marmelade, cornflakes + milk), but the kitchen is well equipped, tea/coffee whenever you feel like it and a fridge for your own food is available - all you need to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

The beds are comfortbale, the rooms are nice, the bathrooms nice plus there is a Sauna you can rent (after a long tour through the city maybe the best thing to do)!

A big plus is the location - right in the middle of the medieval city center! You cannot be closer to the sightseeing spots or pubs, but quiet enough to get your sleep after a long day (or night)!

If you want a nice stay at Tallinn, where you feel welcome & at home (without paying awful lot of money) - come to Tabinoya Hostel and enjoy Estonia! :)
