hostel is in the heart of tallinn's old town- the perfect location! the staff are all young and super friendly which is a welcome change from russia where no one smiles :P my only (small) complaint is that my room didn't have curtains for big window- buildings are pretty close together here so if you wanna change clothes, head to the bathroom!
I pick my hostels by three categories; Location, price and atmosphere/friendliness. All three factors are very well met here. Staff is great, and international, location is perfect. Also there is a top kitchen, that may not look fancy but has absolutely everything u need to cook, and keep, your food. Somebody wrote WIFI is spotty, I disagree, its excellent. My room even had single beds in the dormitory which is nice. Bunks were there too but due to low season it wasn't packed.
Big Hostel right in the center of old town, close to everything including a 24h shop (the only one in old town), Has a small bar, good internet, printer, Kitchen has freezer, fridge and everything needed for cooking your own meals. Was a bit quiet due to low season, but easy to meet ppl. Relaxed atmosphere. some showers are a bit old, but hot.
The hostel's location right in the center of the city. Comfortable beds and clean rooms and bathrooms. This is the most pleasant staff. They will help in any situation and create an atmosphere of fun and a nice stay in Tallinn.

Only had one night here and wasn't impressed. The bathrooms were iffy, the Wi-Fi was worse but at least it was a cheap place to sleep. The beds were not very good and being such an old building it needed repairs. I may be unfairly comparing it to Tallinn backpackers where I had also stayed and it was much nicer with better atmosphere
The toilet is very dirty
Great location, near all the decent bars, however toilet didn't work and was flooded and nothing was done about it

Although been there for -4- times its getting worse and worse. Light is not working in one of the bathrooms, keyboard of one of two computers in the common room is out of order (known problem since DAYS, I was told !!!), you cannot access light switch in one of the mixed rooms without grabbing into someones bed (room 10), heating was switched off in all rooms although temps drop round 0°C at night. Bathroom: Shower and door starts to rotten, bathtub really dirty ...
