Friendly people and staff, 24/24 reception, free coffee and tea, nice showers, good mattresses, right in the middle of the city centre and a good vibe throughout the whole hostel!

I booked a bed in one of the dormitories. The room was very spacious and cosy, as is the rest of the hostel, that also includes a common kitchen and a common room. Anyway, definitely more than worth the - tiny - price of a stay there!

I went there by walking from the international bus station. It took approx. 20 mins, which was quite acceptable if u have enough time. Inside the beautiful old town, which is the best thing. Plus, free printing service!!!

I stayed for one night and I really liked it. Hostel is clean and toilets and showers are new. My room had big windows to the street. It's also very cheap:) if I ever need place to stay in Tallin I'm definitely coming again! (There was free tee and coffee available in the kitchen which was very nice)

This hostel is fairly priced and is located in Old Town. About a 15 minute cab ride from the airport. It is also near the ferry terminal. We had a private two bed room on the third floor. The building is secure. Codes to get in and out. The doors could use some oil - they were skweeky and loud....

This place has a nice mix of all ages of people and types of travelers. There is an open, cool central patio area to BBQ, as well as a cozy games and TV room to hang out in if the weather is not so great.
