    We booked for two days. The rooms are very cleans, they have an excellent beds (for us it was really important cause of we were walking during all the day). The facilities we don’t use to, but they have got everything you need. The staff was really nice, good comunication, good behavior and especially the location...the hostel is in the middle of the old town, it’s good for searching it and there are many bars surrounded for take some drinks.

    I came to the hostel when I was suppose to start at TTU & NICPB, Tallinn so wasn’t in the mood to let my hair down but still enjoyed a couple of beers from the bar. Good value and good location!! The beds were clean and comfortable and the rooms and washing facilities quite nice!!

    This hostel is really cheap and located good. It wasn't really cozy and clean, it's just a place for sleeping.

    It's an old building so lots of steps, but could be cleaner. My room was freezing even with a sherpa on. Location is great.

    The Hostel's staff is great, and the atmosphere is really good, but they need to take control in other many aspects: Mattress are quite old and are not so clean: One guest of the room number 10 said that she had bedbugs in her room and was true. Pillows have rests of blood and they should be cleaned, same with eiderdowns. Room number 5 has no air circulation because windows can't be open, just only a tiny square, so that makes a heavy atmosphere in the room hot and sometimes smelly

    One Main Concern Security. Two Entrance you can Walk in Easily. Third Entrance allows you to enter when for Someone to Come Out and Leaves the Door open. Few individuals have Been Showered Use Kitchen Facilities, Lockers without being Challenged. Most StaffS are Volunteers. Work Three Days a week Only.

    So the hostel had to temporarily close down and we unexpectedly got booked in the neighbours hostel which used to belong to the same hostel. The stuff there was very unfriendly. My mattress was dirty and the hostel kitchen as well. People were throwing food next to the trash and everyone seemed to be wasted. When we tried to have a cigarette at the smoking area some guy sent us away with the words: 'f**k you Ge***ns. ' Not a pleasant stay, can not recommend it. Lai 22 hostel

    The worst hostel I have been so far. There were homeless people who obviously live there most of the time. Nothing against them, but I couldn't breathe or sleep because of the smell. All the staff were so sad and depressed.
