Great experience. Absolutely fantastic


Spent NYE here and had the best time! Ben, Matt & Carl were all awesome. Lots of fun, really love Tallinn full of great stories. Hostel itself is super chilled & really felt like home away from home. Right in the old town, so close to all the cool stuff you want to see. Beds are comfycomfy, & whilst the dorm I was in was small, it was cosy. Loved the no shoe rule! Definitely will be back.


Its a hostel with a very good "vibe", definitely recommend it


The vibe in the hostel is great - due to Bein, Matt and Carl, three down-under-guys running the place. Very nice chaps. And their kindness and positivness goes over to the guests. Everything in this hostel is great - exept some little hick-ups in the infrastructure (sometimes a light doesn´t work for example). Ah, and the rooms are pretty small. I recommend the place definitely!

Excellent hostel in the middle of the old town. Everything is in walking distance. The staff (Ben) provided very good tips what to see and experience in town. The pancake place close-by is a must.




Ben has the most amazing beard ever and also makes a killer chicken stew!!! All round great stay and great staff!

Mate, you can definitely stay here again. Any time! :D


Great hostel! Where else do you have a sauna in a dorm room! All in all, a very nice experience. This is a hostel where everything works.


Good location and the staff were really friendly. However, I wouldn't stay here again because of the 11pm curfew they have to keep the neighbours happy. Only really a problem for me as I didn't want to go out, but there was no where else to hang out so you kind of just had to go to bed. Also the common room wasn't open at all early the next morning, which I found kind of difficult for the same reason, either had to chill in the dorm till 10 or go out. My room also smelt quite moldy.


Great atmosphere. Comfortable bed. Decent sized kitchen with everything you need. Free dinners a bonus. Good wifi. Only one bathroom on second floor between 3 dorm rooms. The only negative.


One of the best places to stay in Tallinn. Great atmosphere, great people and lots of fun.


Typical good clean hostel. Recommended!


Really lovely hostel, all of the staff are super friendly! It feels more like a friend house than a hostel. Ben, victor, everyone were just lovely! :-)


Great hostel, lives up to its reputation. Nice location in the old town, close enough to the action but not the noise. There's a supermarket close by. Most nights there was a dinner you could sign up for 3€ and there were the usual things like pub crawls and tours that you could join. The staff were really friendly, knowledgable and helpful—especially Ben, what a legend! Dorm was cosy but completely adequate and the bunks were actually comfy


Overall an excellent hostel. Awesome staff, great facilities, one room even comes with a sauna and jacuzzi tub! Excellent location as well! Couldn't be more pleased.


Fantastic staff and location, really clean hostel with lovely spacious bathroom. Also a choice of excursions that the hostel staff organise, would recommend this hostel very much.


Fantastic hostel in the heart of old town Tallinn. Very friendly staff and offers great meals for a few euros. One of the best hostels i've ever stayed. I would definately recommend this hostel.
