Tallinn Backpackers was rated #1 in Estonia at the 2010 and 2011 Hoscars and it's not hard to see why. This fun, lively and comfortable hostel 'has a great atmosphere [where it's] really easy to meet people. It's the best hostel if you are travelling alone', according to our guests, who also tell us this is a 'fantastic party hostel, exactly what hostels should be like'. Despite this, the hostel is quiet after 11pm, so it's easy to get a good night's sleep as well. They're located in Old Town, just five minutes' walk from Town Hall Square.

    I think what makes us special is that we don't allow large groups to book into our hostel, so we have the ability to have one-on-one contact with each and every guest. We really try to make everyone feel like family, and will all our local knowledge we can guide anyone in the right direction for what Tallinn has to offer.
    Each night a staff member cooks a hostel dinner for only €3 per serving and they even clean the plate for you! This is a good start before it's time to hit up our small bar for happy hour, but don't be careless after 7.30pm when the only rule of the hostel comes into play... Facebook Violation; during happy hour Facebook is banned in the common room, allowing for more group interaction.
    We're located in the middle of Tallinn's historical Old Town, only an arms length away from all the main attractions. One place all staff recommend is 'III Drakon', a real medieval tavern that serves elk soup with generous pies and the right beer for so cheap that you can buy for your friends as well. All servings are €1 and the service stays true to medieval times, so this should not be missed.
    We're ideally suited for solo travellers between the ages of 18 and 35. It's a hostel for backpackers, run by backpackers, and staff are both locals and backpackers themselves.

    Good atmosphere, awesome staff. Accidentally brought my key with me to Helsinki but they were really cool about me returning it a few days later. Hostel dinners cost 3 Euros and are really delicious.
