A great place to stay if you're going to be in town for more than a couple days as there's a shared kitchen and refrigerator, so you can make breakfast or other meals if you're on a budget! It's two separate double rooms with a good sized kitchen and bathroom and toilet. We had the whole suite to ourselves, so...

I had lectures in TUT in Erasmus content, and selected Academic Hostel based on some recommondation. I was an amazing experience. I have met several different people in the (24 hours active) lobby on different times; all of them were soooo nice. The design of the rooms were just perfect: each neighbor 2 rooms shared a facility that contains kitchen,...

Stayed there for a couple of nights with a friend. She was studying on nearby collage. The hostel is full of young people. Lots of parties going on but after midnight you can sleep nicely. Rooms are nice and big but I shared mine with 3 roommates. Bathroom is small but OK. The hotel is a bit far from the...

Two bedrooms off of a shared kitchen. The WC is in a separate room from the sink so take some hand sanitizer to leave in the WC so you can touch the door knobs (leaving WC and entering shower). It is impossible to have a shower without making the entire shower room floor wet and this can be problematic for...

Not too clean (especially the floor and the stuff in the kitchen). LCD-TV. One can open only 1/5 of the window, it was super hot. The hand wash sink was blocked. Free car park. Refrigerator, two hot plates.

This is very nice place to stay for a night in Tallinn. Two separate rooms connected with one small kitchen , toilet and shower. Nothing luxury, but the bed quality was AWESOME and all was pretty clean and nice. I can recommend this place without any doubt. Next time I am in Tallin I will also choose this place.

Having stayed there twice i can tell that the place is just ok and it's definitely a hostel (not a hotel). Nothing bad and nothing extra nice, it just is what it is. The place is split into 2 room blocks and the 2 rooms share a kitchen and shower/wc. The blocks themselves have a lockable door and the rooms...
