The staff (Ana) is really helpful and recommended a lot of places to see and eat in Tallinn. The room is cozy and big enough, toilet is also clean.

Nice hostel very close to town square. Great private room. It was very cold so we had a space heater. The only downfall was that our room was right next to the washroom so you could hear everything that was going on in the washroom.

Viru Viru Viru! It was a very chill place. The staff gave us very good advice on where to go and where to eat (Shimo!). We stayed in the double bed room, which is facing the street. Idk if it's because I'm from NY, but the little noise that came in from the window didn't bother me at all. The room is very big and spacious. The free breakfast wasn't much but it was good to have a meal before exploring the city. Awesome common room too!

One of the best hostel I had been! Breakfast was great, the space has good design, good information. It is literally in the city center... I have nothing to say but good things. The Latvian girl who received us, was great! She is very nice! Told us everything we needed to know about Tallinn and the Hostel. I will definitely recommend this hostel!

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Itt;s actually a big apartment devided into rooms and into a big living room. There're is nothing to be disappointed with - the location is perfect, it's cozy, it's cheap and clean. On the counter hostels administrators wi;; tell about the city and give worthy tips about spots to see or place to have a lunch.

Amazing hostel with amazingly friendly staff! The hostel is right in the centre of the old town, has very nice rooms and even the breakfast with freshly made pancakes is included! Had a really nice stay there, the staff is always very friendly and helpful when it comes to tours or other things to do. The next time I come to Tallinn I will definitely stay there!

Only stayed for one night but the hostel itself was clean and nice and the room spacious. Even when on a quite busy street it's still quiet as the hostel is on the top floor. And I loved the pattern on the bedlinen. :) The only thing I was wondering was that the staff didn't speak the local language at all.
