Staff was just horrible. Never reccomend. They dont know how to take negative feedback and rooms are stinky. Doesn’t get sleep cause street was noisy. Absolutely badest emotions. Never go back there! J.

The title says it all, just don't go, there are plenty of other choices in Tallinn. You would expect some kind of professional conduct in any kind of service situation. In my knowledge I was interacting with the owner himself and completely stunned by his behavior and manner of speech. I wouldn't recommend this place in a million years.

What a disaster trying to check in here. On booking I gave my arrival time and thought I’d been allocated a code to access the place after hours. I showed up 10 minutes after closing time. The door was locked, no door bell for after hours or any after hours instructions. A phone number taped to the door. I tried this but my phone would not connect with it. This meant I could not get in and had to find alternative accommodation late at night. Stayed the next night, they’d marked me as a no show. Lady down stairs in office called them and stored my bags kindly. Room and bathroom was clean, but place was like a rabbit warren, lots of renovations going on. They need to change their systems for late checkins.

Hostel is located at the very heart of Tallinn old city, for reasonable price you can have twin room with clean wc and shower in corridor. Bit noisy if you stay on weekend, as it is surrounded by bars

The hostel is located in the very central part of the old town. Please note that this means that, especially on weekend, there are more people around, whom you may also hear, especially when windows are open. All staff was very friendly, flexible and tried to make my stay as comfortable as possible. There is a decently equiped kitchen and, as an paid service, the possibility to do laundry. Rooms as well as shared bathrooms are kept clean.
