This facility is just too cluttered with miscellaneous item rather than being clear, neat and welcoming. Also as a very small hostel (a single space (sleeping and lounge including 1 toilet and 1 bath) for 6 guests it is simply too small with too little opportunity for group interaction and absolutely no opportunity to withdraw.. As soon as I had the opportunity, I moved to a different hostel in Tallinn.
Really nice and friendly staff that are eager to show you the city. And since the place is quite small you directly get a good and cosy feeling of visiting somebody's home. Thanks for a lovely stay. I will definitely go back there if/when I go back to Tallinn!

This place felt more like an home that you are sharing with some people, I know a lot of people write these types of comments but here it really is true with only 6 beds and the owner hanging out in the kitchen. And there's a sauna and jacuzzi! The owner also gave me some great travel trips for Lithuania!
Small and cozy hostel (one room) in the Center of Tallin.
Small hostel (1 room), quiet, clean and very helpful staff. All good except that there is no locker and beds are not separated from the kitchen, so if someone is cooking in the evening, it may be a bit smelly in the whole room.
Really cute place with excellent location, but if you are travelling alone it might be to small in the end
This hostel has a great location but is in need of a little bit of work. The door to the front was incredibly hard to open and shut which lead to a lot of door slamming. The blinds for the windows were broken which meant the sunrise at 4:00am was quite blinding. The nice things about the hostel was the free cereal breakfast in the morning, free tea, the smaller size and therefore smaller number of people sleeping there and the great location. If you can share a bathroom - it is a nice place!
Private rooms are in a different building that doesn't have wifi
Cozy little hostel. Its relatively small but you can always meet with ppl from the tallinn backpackers. Plus since its smaller it is more personal and easier to get good sleep.
It is a House! One room, 6 beds, one shower, one toilet. That's it!
We really enjoyed the stay. Very friendly wellcome and fresh renovated appartment dobblerooms with possibility to cook and living together. I won´t stay anywhere else if I come back to Tallin.

A homey little hostel with hosts who were very friendly, generous, and happy to share the things they love about Estonia. The only improvement I could suggest is having lockers for guests. Otherwise A+. The day trip to Laheema National Park was a great value for money and a nice way to get out of the city without your own wheels. Thanks Livius, Egle, and Anna for making me feel at home in beautiful Tallinn during those amazing long, long days of summer! :)
Great Place for travelers wanting to avoid the crowds and noise of party-like hostels.
This is a different hostel to the norm. It pretty much is someone's home- cosy and welcoming staff. Most of the backpackers there seemed to be working/ studying in tallinn. Even a staff member stayed in one of the dorm beds.There's no lockers, not much room for belongings, cramped bunks, and a small partial curtain to screen you from the common room. I found it hard to sleep (don't think the guys did)- i recc ear plugs and an eye mask for the blazing 4am summer sun from windows next to the beds
