Perfect location in the Old Town. Very clean (they make you remove your shoes upon entry). Staff was so helpful with all my questions... and there were pancakes and coffee in the mornings! Loved staying there. Several rooms are right on the common area, which can get a bit loud if people don't respect the quiet hours starting at 11PM... we only had one night where the noise kept us up, but perhaps worth asking for a specific room if you're easily awakened.

Difficult to sleep with a translucent curtain that only covers half of the window. This was the real downer on a really nice place. Staff in particular were very helpful.

A wonderful spot to stay right in the heart of Tallinn! The rooms facing the street have lovely views, but can be a little noisy at night. Staff is fun and helpful. Great stay!

It is well located in Old Town and is nice and quiet. However the beds are very uncomfortable with springs sticking out of the mattress and the shower is very weak- more of a dribble. Pancakes were good though and the staff were helpful when recommending tours to do.

We loved the staff, the environment, and the location. Except for the scary elevator, which was just a minor setback, because we had very helpful staff waiting for us!

Nice hostel, friendly staff, great location. The only bad thing was the shower that changed all the time between hot and cold water.

We really really enjoyed staying in this beautiful Hostel, with great athmosphere and super nice staff. The location of the Hostel is perfect and we felt like in a big family.

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.
