This hostel has a great location, right in the heart of the old town. We stayed for three nights and we were lucky to have considerate people in our dorm. We had two early nights due to a fwrry to xatch and tours, and we slept through any noise. The hostel goes quiet aftwr 11pm so its not too bad.... More

The atmosphere in the common room is without compare, you meet so many people from around the world and make new friends, especially thanks to the "No Social Media after 7pm" -rule. I have nothing bad to say about this hostel (stayed there 4 times so far), and would recommend it :) The only bad thing about it is that... More

I will start this review by admitting it was a mistake for me to stay here. I originally planned to stay at the partner hostel The Monk's Bonk but it was full and they directed me to Tallinn Backpackers. I was desperate and most other hostels were full so I booked it without doing much research. I spent three nights... More

First and foremost - this place is PERFECT for solo travellers. [Most of] the staff here are friendly and just want to get you to have a good time. The location was really nice - old town Tallinn is beautiful and they've made the most of it - and the rooms were decent. The common room was a really nice... More

I stayed here once, maybe twice, when other hostels were full. Bluntly; the place is like a college dorm; its party non stop. If you're looking for a peaceful night's sleep, or to get work done, forget it. If you're looking to party like college weekends you've found the right place. The pubcrawl is exhaustive (they seem to hit at... More

A warning... this is not a place to go if you want to sleep a lot, but it's sure great fun, especially when travelling alone. The people there are fantastic, they have activities in the common room every day until 11 pm, and then the "drinking tour" begins. Great way to discover the city and to meet new people. The...

I stayed for 4 nights, and yes it's very much a party hostel but what you are going to get is a group of friends by the time you leave.
