Excellent hostel, close to all transport and the city center. Has an excellent bar right next door with good happy and super happy hour prices. Good fast wifi. Very social, clean and good showers. Lockers in the rooms. Would definitely stay again.
Second time I stayed at Red Emperor's, and I will keep on coming back. Staff is laid back and helpful, bar is quirky and also visited by lots of locals, and the atmosphere can't be topped! I absolutely love this place, stay nowhere else in Tallinn.
I truly think Red Emperor has been one of the best hostels I've been to, if not the best one. Should I one day need to book a hostel in Tallinn again, I'd be disappointed should Red Emperor be full, which then again would be rather understandable. For the first time a place with good music played and one in which the staff seemingly feels at home.

Beds in Africa are really "wiggly". Maybe bolting the beds to the wall might help.
I came to stay for 2 nights. I ended up there for 2 weeks. The staff are friendly, and they work for the guests (eg.luke
Superb hostel. Its really clean, has the best location, right on the edge of old town with a fantastic supermarket right across the road. The bar attached is a major winner with activities everyday like karaoke, open mic and quiz night. The fact the beer is so cheap it's practically free!! Thanks luke, sean, aoife, yanush and liz. See you again soon!!

awesome hostel, staff and hostellers are all frendly and helpful. Common room is great, so is the kitchen. Had a great stay in Tallinn, just so beautiful as they say!
This hostel is well located just near the old city. Don't go there if you don't plan to party very late... The hostel in itself is quiet but you will need to open the window if you want some air in your room, and the courtyard downstairs can be quite noisy during the night (people are going in and out of the hostel's bar through the courtyard). Otherwise all facilities are good and staff is helpful.
There is no locker in the rooms. There is no way to cool down the room when it's warm outside so it gets very hot inside. People from outside can easily get in through the bar. But the bar is great, the ambiance is very nice and it's cheap!
Great hostel and atmosphere... love the super fun happy hour of 1euro beers. This and other things will keep me coming back to this place :)
Easily the best hostel I've stayed at so far, compared to over 25 other hostels spread throughout Europe. Great set up, easily accessible drinks and a common area create a great atmosphere to conducive to meeting other travellers. All the staff are amazingly helpful and are always down to hang out with guests - props to Luke, Dylan, Sean, Liz and Eva for being so great. Would definitely recommend this hostel to any travellers staying in Tallinn.
Stayed 2 nights in 8 bed dorm. Very friendly and helpful staff, great atmosphere and perfect location. My only complaint was the rooms were very very hot which made for a very uncomfortable night's sleep. The staff tried hard to cool rooms but had only one fan which was used in each room for about an hour during the day. Management really needs to invest in more fans but other than that great hostel
A great hostel with a bar attached with cheap drinks and lots of fun, but which definitely separate from the hostel which isn't noisy. Really nice staff who were really helpful too.
I recommend this hostel to everyone who wants to have a good time in Tallinn and needs to watch his purse. Not only the rooms, but also the bar is cheap, and the atmosphere in the bar is just great. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and competent. The excellent location nearby Tallinn's old city makes this hostel to a big chance.
If you neef a place to stay in Tallin, Red Emperor is definitely the place to be! Perfect atmosphere and very helpful staff :)
Absolutely fantastic place to stay! The staff here are great, big shout out to the hostel staff Sean, Luke, Liz, Dylan, Yan, Markko, Aoife, and Anastasia. Great party hostel with a bar right next door! Had a blast and recommend anyone staying in Tallinn to book here!
This was the best hostel i've ever stayed in. The staff was superfriendly and gave a lot of tips of things to do, made us feel very welcome. The rooms and facilities are very clean, location is perfect. The only downside was the heat in the rooms and common area, even though it was really hot outside it might help to have at least a fan or something in the room.

Stayed one night only but would return as showers were great and beds were comfy. Cool vibe in common area and staff are a friendly bunch. 1 euro beer happy hour is a real plus and great time to meet others location is perfect! Opposite a decent supermarket and right next to the old town.
Very friendly and helpful staff, good location on the edge of the old town and close to Viru.
