Especially cleanliness and equipment of the kitchen should be improved to create a more inviting and cosy atmosphere. Signs with commandments and prohibitions everywhere and video surveillance create an athmosphere of mistrust which is not appropriate to a young and open-minded audience.

Old town Munkenhof hostel was in ideal location but facilities were poor and unhelpful staff. Our bedroom was clean but the shower area up the corridor was not clean and tended to block and flood the bathroom area each time. Kitchen facilities were extremely poor - kitchen empty, dirty with few delph and utensils provided. A fridge was provided to travellers but this obviously was a problem as we had some of our own perishables stolen. Hostel takes money but traveller gets little in return.

Normal backpacking low budget hostel. Bathrooms are quite crowded in rush hours. Staff is nice, all common areas are big and comfortable. The dorms are OK, and my bed had a very good mattress, which is rare in dorms. Very well located. Good price-value.

The hostel is in a perfect location, has huge common areas with couches, tv and computers also a separate kitchen and dining room. The dorm was standard, the dorms are located on the ground floor which makes it exposed to noise and people looking from the street, but it's not a big problem unless you're sensitive. We booked as a group but got separated into two rooms, thankfully it was fixed the second night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A really good place for travellers.

The hostel is located in the very heart of the old town. For me it was huge advantage. The room was big enough and beds were comfy. What I didn't like was the number of bathrooms on the floors. There just wasn't enough and in the morning there was a little "hunting" for the free one. The other thing is the bathrooms' cleanliness. The staff could really work on that.

Very nice location, nice staff. A bit shame only have 2 shower rooms for the entire hostel though. Downstairs 4-bed room does not have a window so it was a bit dark. Otherwise, all is fine. Good value for money too.

Everything was excellent from the minute we walked in to the day we left. The accomadations were great and very, very clean and spacious for a hostel. Loved meeting people from all over the world.

Only stayed one night as a stopover due to catching flight home the following morning. Was put in a room where I had to go through another room to reach it, the room was full of lockers - which looked like disused changing room lockers so other guests who were not staying in the room were also coming in the room to access the lockers - bit of a security concern. My own padlock didn't fit. Had to trapse 2 flights of stairs to shower. Cheap hostel but cheap for a reason. Wouldn't stay again

It's a great hostel, located in the center of Old Town. I stayed in a dorm, very comfy beds and nice atmosphere. The staff was very helpful and friendly, made me feel welcome. Big bathrooms on every floor, they were also very clean. Overall it was nice experience, i would definitely recommend it!

If you want a cheap stay with a great Location in the old city-Center it´s perfect. But you can´t expect luxury for the Price.

This hostel is very well located, clean, comfortable, and cheap. The showers are really clean. The hostel is well located, it's perfect to visiti the Old Town of Tallin. We really enjoyed our stay there, and the girl at the reception desk was so helpful and kind to us, giving tips and providing information. The only inconvenience is that there is no lift, because it's an old building. I would definitely come back again!

Had a nice stay at the hostel. Only bothering thing was the staff in the night badmouthing all their customers and different nationalities in different order so loudly that it was hard to sleep.

I stayed at first floor and it was no bathroom only wc. You have to go to 2nd floor for the bathroom. The receptionist i dealt with was no smile at all and rather grumpy, he was new staff,maybe he's not fit in for the jobs. The location in central but the direction of how to get there was not quite correct. Most of all, the kitchen was empty and dirty despite it's so big. It is too hard to find the utensil.
