    Made the biggest mistake of my life here, which I'm ashamed of and truly repentant for, but it doesn't reflect the quality of the hostel or staff. Some of whom are the most wonderful people I've ever met. Sorry for my stupidity and ignorant screw up, won't ever make that mistake again, not that I'll get the chance apparently. Excellent and welcoming hostel, awesome location, strong af beer, just don't be a terrible person and you'll have a great time. Touch card doesn't work, so don't try it.

    Awesome place to stay! Very close from the old town...It shows some miles from town but the way is full of attractions so don't hesitate to try this hostel! Hostel staff is way better than we expected! They are awesome very helpful. Kitchen is less busy and full of utilities and sometimes with some food also. I recommend to stay for groups and single person also! Enjoy your stay in Estonia!:)

    I enjoyed my stay at Alur Hostel. The beds are comfortable. The staff were helpful & supportive. The location is superb. The kitchen is well equipped. I give it 5 stars in comparison to most hostels I’ve visited over the years since 1970.

    the hostel is in an amazing location, couldn’t be better located! However the staff let it down a bit, not very informative or friendly. All the showers on our floor were broken when we were there, so we had to wait ages to use one. It’s was clean and good for one night but if you want to meet people this wasn’t the place.

    If you like a clean place, don’t come here. The living area and bar are nice and a good space to hang out. However, the rest of the place is questionably falling apart. The bathrooms were quite dirty the entire time, the shower I chose was clogged and started flooding out the door, and the door to the room was incredibly loud and squeaky. Every time someone opened it, everyone woke up. If you don’t mind a little grunge or perhaps if you’re in a big group I suppose this place would be perfect.

    We paid extra to stay in a private room, my bed was awful, you could feel all the springboards. My boyfriend's bed was a bit better though. On one of our "clean" towels we found what looked like a bed bug, louse or tick! Not impressed to say the least, for the money we paid next time I'll opt for an Airbnb. Would not recommend this hostel.
