Atmosphere was amazing, everyone was friendly and welcoming. Hostel was convenient for sight seeing and supermarket. Communal area was brilliant. Enjoyed so much we stayed longer than we intended and missed seeing Finland.

Fantastic location, cheap, clean, comfortable, helpful staff. Noisy on a Saturday night, though. You soon get used to taking off your shoes at the door.

Fantastic place to stay. I stayed for a long weekend with 4 other guys for Uni. We had a great time. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is fantastic. There is a sauna which, with pear cider in hand, was the perfect way to start each night.

We (boyfriend and I) stayed at Tallinn Backpackers for two nights (Sat & Sun). It was a really great hostel... the accommodation looks like it has been freshly renovated and is sparkling clean. We were lucky enough to get a dorm with an ensuite (ask for the 'Kolm' room) and the bathroom was unbelievably modern. The guys at reception were really helpful with suggestions/directions (one walked us to the tourist office) and gave us tips for where to stay on the rest of our trip. We could get wifi in the bedroom which saved us from going downstairs every time we wanted to get online. The only downside was that there was no secure storage for backpacks, but you could get a medium-sized locker to put your valuables in. We stayed at hostels in Riga and Vilnius too and this was the pick of the bunch by a long way! Would definitely recommend!
