The best thing of this hostel is it's location right in the center, 2 min walking to the Town Hall. Really cheep place to stay for a couple of nights in Tallinn for young travelers and backpackers. Many longterm guestrs stay in this hostel, estonian as well. Big kitchen with fridge, dishes, microwaves, kettle - you can use it all. 2 bathrooms with hot shower, enough clean. Always toilet paper in wc :) Young helpful english speaking staff, bar in the 2nd floor. Free locker for every guest

Unfortunately not all rooms have lockers which is what a lot (us included)of people book certain hostels for. Place is very run down and showers need some TLC but if your after Cheap, a bar and a great location this place is perfect.

Trash cans were all overflowing. Drains did not drain in the shower leaving you standing in someone else's water. The guy that runs this place needs to take more pride in it. I paid for 2 nights and did not stay the second night. I asked for my money back for the second night but to no avail. He said you can't expect much for the prIce. I was glad to get out of there. Also right above a club so the noise won't stop on a weekend until about 6 in the morning. Could not find staff when needed

Quite shabby facilities. I think there was mold in the bathrooms. For me it was not a problem, but for allergic it might be. Staff was very friendly although they didn't seem to manage the keys very well. They gave me a key for the safety locker, but when I opened the locker there was some guy's stuff inside. Otherwise it was a great place. Nice people and good atmosphere. Street noise was quite loud so despite the name this place is not for sleeping but to party and meet people.

Going by the reviews of this hostel before my arrival I wasn't expecting much but was happy to find it was a great place to stay. Perfect location, great staff, fun hostel vibe...if looking for a genuine hostel experience stay here.

The hostel is located in the middle of the old town. It can be hard to find due to a new entrance. It looks like a condemned building inside, but it's great for the price, especially for a short visit. The showers worked fine and there's a great kitchen. When you need to check out early, a staff member can be hard to find. The staff are very knowledgeable on the city. I would stay here again

+ Location is great - right in an Old Town but not at the most busy street. Big kitchen which is also can be used for socialising, bar at frideay and saturday nights, lots of showers on different floors - Hard to find in spite of I had directions, hard to look about inside - different parts of hostel are at different floors and sides of one house, room wasn't wery clean, lack of WC's at the last floor wish it was a bit cheaper for that facilities

I think it would be very convenient to have a sign on the door written "The Sleeping Maris"

Great location but the hostel needs to work cleanliness and customer service plus hostel address is not the right.

The hostel was OK. It it in the center, perfect location. The price is also good. I think the hostel is very good for staying a a few days but not longer. It is very difficult to find, it is not in Väike Karja but in Sauna street 1 (no sign for it). After entering, you must go to the first floor (it is a nice old building but without elevator!), enter ~"Mark Twain". After reception narrow steps again. The main (and only?) problem is the hygenie of the hostel, that is very poor. Otherwise OK.

I really liked the bar inside the hostel. I wanted to checkout on 08:00 o' clock, but the staff was still sleeping, so i had to wait.

Very cool place. The most unusual hostel we've stayed in. I wish they would clean the showers each day.

It was expensive compare to other cities, and the quality was also under expected.
