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.
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.
The hostel was rather run down and untidy although the staff were friendly and worked hard to keep it clean. Too much of a party hostel for me, I prefer somewhere I can relax after a day out sightseeing. The single ensuite bathroom attached to the dorm seems odd as the space could easily be converted to hold multiple showers & toilets to avoid the long waits in the morning.
Great location and staff. Minimal toilets / showers in relation to the amount of people within the hostel.
Awesome atmosphere, great communal area if you want to chill or party. well located. Staff is very helpful with everything, very kind people. You can go out with them Which makes.your stay much better. I would Definetly recommend this hostel.
Great hostel, great atmosphere and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Judy a shame that the bathroom was so dirty and smelly and wasn't cleaned over our 3 night stay. Also very mouldy walls in our room. The rest of the hostel made up for it though!
The Tallinn Backpackers is an amazing place, I would go back there; perfect place to meet other people, perfect place to have fun, perfect place to chill. The staff is great. They got a little bar, so if u feel like you want to have a beer before the night you can have it there, and they even run pubcrawls that start to another hostel. So that's a very good way to meet more people.
Smallish hostel which is good as most people will be down in the common room socialising. I would recommend you stay at the sister hostel, monks bunk, as they have better facilities and larger rooms. Staff were really good at getting people involved and organising events. Do the day trip to the national parks!
Great place, good staff, great atmosphere. But please do quickly improve air quality of ensuite bathroom in top floor bunkbedroom. It really brings down the overall experience.
Always a happy beard to greet you at the door. Always someone up for a game of beerpong or fussball. If you get a chance definitely go on a tour with Maku (best tour guide ever) to Lahema national park.
By far the best place I've stayed on the whole trip!
