Location is great if you want to base yourself in Tallinn's beautiful old town. We had booked a quad room for the 3 of us but upon checking in they gave us a room that slept 6 instead! (3 bunk beds), so we appreciated the extra space. Room was barebones with no table or chair, although the large window sills...

The first thing we had to do was take our shoes off and put them in a rack until we went back outside. The reason we were told was for safety because of the stone floors. I have no answer as to why there wasn't any non-slip materials on the floors. Next, on our floor there was only one bathroom...

The hostel is very nice, clean, with young staff. It was cool to spend time here, specially in the common room and in the kitchen. Breakfast was what we needed after a long trip by bus. We had a room with private toilet and was the best thing for a group of friends. I suggest this place also for those...

I stayed for a few nights in September. The hostel is in an excellent location for exploring Tallinn I never did find a decent supermarket anywhere near. The hostel was clean, well kept and friendly. Staff were helpful but none of them was Estonian!

Located next to St Olaf's Church, 15min walk to ferry terminal. This 3 story petite hostel offers great value and clean place to stay. it has a large common room to socialise. the settings feel like a home stay. You can use the kitchens and washing machine. I highly recommend this place.

The Hostel is located in the city center. The rooms are nice and also very clean. Definitely would stay there again! It is cheap and you also get a free breakfast in the morning, which is really nice.

Nice and welcoming hostel in the center of the town. Friendly and easy-going staff always ready to inform you, and good facilities. We stayed for two nights and it was a very good option even though it's very difficult to par your car nearby. Wifi signal needs to be improved. On arrival you will be requested to remove your shoes.

Decent place to stay. I stayed here for 3 nights. Location was good, easily accessible from the bus station. Main downsides are that there was no wifi connection from my room, and laundry was a bit pricey at 5e for a wash, but then again you return it back to you dried and washed, unlike other hostels in the baltics...
