Academic Hostel “is nothing else but the insult of the term “Academic”. I had moved for a few months as a Ph.D. research student to the Endla 4 hostel, but I found it the worst place for living. There is no privacy, no respect, no rules. You can face drunk, screaming people all night even in weekdays that can destroy your dream and peace of mind. The strange thing was when I complained about a serious issue to the management, they simply wrote me back that “Endla 4” hostel is for chill and students are free to enjoy their life. The management had offered me another room in the other building near campus with conditions that I will stay in the two-seater room and will pay for both seats. I had made a request that I am unable to pay for both seats and want a shared room but they didn't accept. I had accepted the offer then, as I was in trouble. The staff was also not helpful, even, upon my leaving they made the wrong calculation almost three times But fortunately, I had made my own calculation and finally made them clear. It was the worst experience; I will never recommend this place if you are serious in the study and want to stay for a long time.

It was perfect for us, everything we needed was there. We were visiting family members and needed place to sleep and get clean. Staff was very helpful. Low price. Clean rooms. Good showers. Will use it again.

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 that was really nice. While it's not in the center, trolleybus #3 is just across the street and takes about 20 minutes to the center. Staff was friendly and helpful and there's free Wi-Fi. Transport passes are cheap; €3 for 24 hours, €5 for 3 days and €6 for 5 days. That's unlimited on all surface transport and will get you to all the attractions around the city, including the beach. I'd highly recommend this hostel

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, bath, and a toilet (towels, refrigerator, all the kitchen tools...) ; which were locked, and could be opened only by the resident of thosr teo rooms; hence still private only to them. Moreover, if you were even luckier enough (like me), your next door might be uniccupied, and you could use the whole facility alone. Interior design of the rooms and facility area were also perfect, new, and soooo clean. When i wanted to go to the city center, i used Trolley # 3 that passes by the bus stop almost in front of the hostel; and o la la: i was in the city center after 15 minutes, i only needed to pay 1 Euro 60 cents to the driver for the ticket; no hassle. It is not fair to name the facility as a hostel; it shall be called as a palace indeed. :-))

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 city. That is the worse thing.
