We took this hostel because we were interested in the prison tour, but it never happened while we were there. The staff was very friendlyfriendly. Also, no luck, we had a old drunk guy sleeping naked in our dorm with a girl vomiting in her bed. The 8 bed dorm is bad (shower with very low debit and no plug in the bathroom).

The Hostel is an ideal place to stay. Even though my stay was very short leaving at 4AM I found the place quite pleasant and would recommend it to other visitors to Tallinn. The place is topnotch in terms of service and the Estonian gent who arranged a taxi for me to the airport was very polite and courteous even though he had to make several phone calls to secure a taxi. Please pass on my appreciation to him. Gura maith agat as is said in Gaelic. Slan agus beannacht.

Great location and staff, if you're coming alone it's easy to meet people in the communal area. Would recommend.

The location was perfectly situation in old town. However the hostel needs some improvements. The dorm on the top floor smelled of sewage the whole time and was extremely warm at night. One staff member was not very aware of what was going on in the hostel therefore not the most informative. The pubcrawl started at another hostel's bar which was fun however we did not visit many pubs afterwards.

Perfect location, really welcoming staff and atmosphere (I was known by name by all of the staff by the end of my stay), endless recommendations for things to do in Tallinn and invitations to local karaoke nights and events etc, good security, bathrooms in each room, shoes off made it feel all the more homely. I was sorry to leave!

I was only here for one night but absolutely no complaints. The staff were SUPER helpful and really fun and the location was fab; right in the centre of the old town it was easy to get everywhere. They also offered lots of activities and tours and I can recommend the pub crawl if you're that way inclined. Would definitely go back!

Awesome place :D!! Loved the staff, the place, the atmosphere. The common room is a really good chilling place, and the hostel offers pub crawls and etc. for every night, so it really good if you want to mix partying with a nice chilled atmosphere.

It was good hostel. All staffs were very friendly and helpful. Nice location. It has good cozy living room with counter. You can get cheap beer there. I stayed 8mixed Dorm. Ok bed, Sheet and lockers. One thing, I didn't liked the smell of the shower room. They need to clean drain i think. Also the one night, one people vomited in the bath tub. It was terrible. But. Next day, staff cleaned it well. Also it has sauna. Mostly good hostel, only except the smell.

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.
