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...

Amazing hosts, awesome guests and a chill out place to stay. Everyone was very welcoming and the hosts made it a great stay. If you want to go out and party, you have that option, but also have a nice quiet place to rest if you choose as well. Would definitely stay here again.

The hostel was decent, but I was expecting much more after reading everyone's rave reviews. Generally clean, but rooms and fridge were small, with little space to accommodate everyone when full. Seems like maintenance of the place has gone downhill over time. Still centrally located though, and easy to walk everywhere.

The Hostel is centrally located. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Its one of the few good hostels I have been too. The cleanliness was good, if I had one recommendation, It would to be figure out a place to keep the common room accessible beyond 11pm

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...

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.
