Noone in this hostel speaks proper English. The ladies at the reception kept talking Estonian even though we tried to tell them we didn't understand a word they said. Hostel looked terrible from the outside, the neighborhood is a little messy and spooky. Inside it was very dark and not cozy at all. There was a weird mannequin at the floor which was frkn creepy. Kitchen didn't look clean and had nothing in it (knives, forks etc were given out by the ladies at the reception). The room itself was nice(two bed room). Simple, a working TV with a few English channels, clean and nice looking bathroom. We didn't try the breakfast. The hostel is round about half an hour from the city center. There are a couple of busses which go there. If I came back to Tallinn, I wouldn't stay in this hostel again. I'd prefer to pay a little more money to stay at a place which is closer to the city center and where the staff speaks English.

A really simple hostel, the reception knew some English and Russian, the first impression was sketchy but the rooms were rather freshly renovated, we got a double room, it had a small TV with cable and nice bathroom. The fridge was just outside the room and it was shared with the neighboring room. Since we only stayed the night after the concert, this was a perfect fit. There are several shopping mall nearby and also you can take the bus towards the center.

Rooms were good size, but smelled of smoke. Wifi was available, but reception was spotty. Best Wifi was in the hall or in the lobby. Close to the bus line, 30 minute ride to old town. Breakfast was very good, Laundry was available for 7 euro. (wash, dry and fold) Stayed 3 nights.

I stayed here for a week and considering how cheap it was, you get what you pay for. However, the hostel does not enforce their no smoking policy as there was a clear smell of smoke from the room next to us but nothing was done about it. I was woken up a lot by the loud noise of people talking/laughing/banging in rooms opposite and there was no way that the receptionist could not hear it but again nothing was done about it. I don't recommend paying extra for their transfer service because a taxi from the airport is much cheaper. The towels provided had a funny smell to them which I cannot describe but it's not pleasant. The hostel had the same smell too but because I was there for a week I gradually stopped noticing it. The wooden floor wasn't as clean as it should be and the rug needed a clean too as there was fur on it. The shower/bath and toilet are separate rooms which is very handy considering that you could need the toilet while someone is showering but the room where the toilet is was very small and I barely fit in it. You had to either use the sink in the shower room next door or in your own room in order to wash your hands which I didn't like so much because I don't like the idea of touching door handles with dirty hands. The shower was fine but one morning they must have had trouble with the hot water because the water was so cold it was almost painful to wash my hair. The room itself was lovely and looked nothing like the pictures provided, it's a shame that the hostel hasn't taken the time to update their website and pictures. It was bright and spacious and I really liked it, despite the area looking rather 'rough' and at times I didn't feel all that safe. There is a supermarket nearby which takes around 5 minutes to get to so that was very convenient, there was also a shopping centre with a fast food restaurant 5 minutes more down the road. The receptionists were friendly and had a good level of English which I understood clearly, which is always a plus. However, they really need to teach their cleaners how to smile because if looks could kill I wouldn't be typing this right now... I would go again despite everything because it's within my tight budget as a student (I paid around £170 for a week including the fees and charges from my bank) and plan to again next year.

Stayed here for one night only as part of a large group. Booked online and took proof but was told there was no record of our reservation. Took over half an hour arguing to check in! Turns out they were trying to get more money out of us. Beds ok as are rooms for the price, but rooms stink of cigarettes, toilet is so small your knees touch the door and the bedding is paper thin. Location ok as there's a direct bus into Tallinn's old town taking about 25 mins. Ok for a night only to get a flight home the next day but nothing more!
