Clean hostel in an unbeatable location... Nice common area and super excellent breakfast, however, it needs a bit more of an atmosphere for lone travelers.


Individual lights by every bed are great and not all beds in dorms are bunks! The kitchen is good though I had to leave early so couldn't enjoy the breakfast. Location is good, very handy for old town and about a 20 min walk from port and bus station.


Really liked this place. Cozy, sociable, and clean. There's a piece of chocolate, earplugs, and a towel on everyone's bed which was a nice surprise and the breakfast in the morning is always welcome.


This was one of the best places I stayed in during my trip. The staff were fantastic (very friendly and helpful), the room was bright and cosy, and the hostel was beautifully decorated and designed. It's quite a small place, ten rooms or so, but I prefer this. If you're looking for a crazy party hostel with a bar then I suggest you go somewhere else. Oh and the breakfast was excellent (pancakes and nutella). I would definitely visit again. Thanks for a great stay!


We had a great and wonderful time in Tallinn and especially in the knight hostel. The most we liked the large breakfast every morning. ;-) Thanks a lot... :-)

my friends and I had a great time in Tallinn and in the knight House, great atmosphere and the staff was great! highly recommended


Nice, quiet hostel with friendly staff in a great location. Could maybe do with more shower and toilet facilities but otherwise fine.


The problem I found was the breakfast or what you call breakfast, personally I'm used to having a big breakfast and a bowl of cereal with milk did not cut it for me, I would not call that a breakfast at all but then again, I guess it is a matter of interpretation. But other than that, the place is a decent place to stay. I just wish I had had more time in Tallinn.


Nice hostel with a good location. Breakfast pancakes were delicious! :)


I truly liked this hostel, but I had a very unpleasant incident with my roommate, who searched through my things as he thought I had stolen his weed. As i was abashed, he said sorry, but i was not sure, if it was weed he had been looking for, so I reported the case to the manager. She talked to the guy, but did not move him to another room. I hope, in the unlikely case this happens again, my case will serve a lesson, and they will do it, as I felt bad being with him in one room the next 2 days.


Loved this hostel! One of the best we stayed in. Will be back!

Amazing hostel with cheap price. The staff is helpful and pancake is great :) if I come back to Tallinn, I will choose this hostel again :)


Loved the place! Top location, comfy beds, small but well equipped kitchen, good breakfast. Could've used some more lockers in the dorm, but that's the only fly in the ointment I found. When I get back to Tallinn, this is definitely my #1 choice to stay at!


I really enjoyed my stay at Knight House. The location is excellent. All the important sites are only a short walk away. The daytrips Knight House is offering are excellent and they are good value for money. I especially want to thank the staff of Knight House. They were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. If I visit Tallinn again, no doubt I will stay at Knight House.


This hostel is in a prime location. If you want to be in the center of it all and have access to services, tours, and the highlights of the city, then this is the place. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast is not bad either. Anyone who stays here is sure to have a wonderful and pleasant stay. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfy, and access from the airport is a snap. My only recommendation is to have shelves installed in the showers so people can place their clothes onto.


One of the best hostels I have stayed in!


Nice and coleurfull hospitable hostel in an old monument in the old town. Rooms are simpel, but the showers and badrooms modern and clean. No smokealarms in rooms. Noisy at night when you sleep in the room nr 3 next to the entrance


The water in the upstairs' shower doesn't run well. I think it is a problem of building.


This is the first time I have given 100% to any Hostel but Knight House and their staff deserve it. I stayed 3 nights but I could live there! Loved it. Thank you to ALL the staff for making it such a positive experience.


My stay was cancelled 2 days before because they were doing some reforms. It was very sad but that was it. Anyway I met with the manager of the hostel once in Tallinn and she was very kind with me, so looks like the place worths it.
