Property Description

Tallinn Old Town Backpackers is a small, cozy place for travelers to call home for a short time, to drop their backpacks and recharge their batteries before continuing on their voyage of discovery.

The hostel is located in a remodeled 17th to 18th century building. A small hostel, ideal for individual travelers with true backpacker's spirit who might be more interested in getting to know other travelers over a cup of tea before heading out to get to know each other over a pint of beer.

The Dorm is our living room, kitchen and common room. We offer a home for travelers in the oldest hostel in town. We are a hostel for travel-minded worldly backpackers with Books, Maps, Wi-Fi, Free Tea and Coffee and in excellent location to explore Tallinn's Old Town.

If you are interested, we can arrange day-trips to Lahemaa national park and other interesting places of Estonia! You can also take part in a prison tour of Patarei prison, try shooting guns on the shooting range or, during the high season, take a fun trip with other backpackers to Riga, the capital of Latvia!

The staff is experienced travelers from all over the world! We are always more than happy to advise where to stay, what to see and to provide info on all we can that you just won't find in the guide books!
** PLEASE NOTE: our staff is available most hours of the day, please let us know in advance your arrival time or of any delays so we can be here to greet you!

We are looking forward to welcome you in our home and to Tallinn!

    Amazing little hostel. Really cosy, with large living/sleeping quarters, lovely big kitchen and a nice bathroom with a big bath and shower. Always hot and always clean. Bunk beds were comfortable. Location is fantastic, really central in old town but in a quiet road without too much noise outside. We stayed in February when it was -4 on most days and the room felt really warm. Would definitely stay again in Tallinn and have recommended to my friends :)

    Really nice cosy hostel but maybe not for everyone - its super small with only 6 beds leading directly onto the kitchen. If you want somewhere that feels nice and cosy this is perfect, but if you want something more lively maybe stay at the other hostel they have in town.

    This is the perfect hostal for solo travellers. It's cozy and feels like a home, perfect for a wintery break in Tallinn. Kitchen and sleeping area are an open space so please choose this place only if you are a respectful person. Staff is friendly and super helpful. It's located right next to the main town gate, so it's perfect to explore the city. I really enjoyed my time here, it felt like I was actually living in Tallinn and not simply visiting it as a tourist.

    I liked the family vibe of this hostel for a short stay. It's like sharing a studio apartment with 6 other people! Owner isn't usually around, and it was staffed by a signle short term volunteer who was on vacation. She was great but it would definitely have been nice to have someone to more knowledgable around.

    Very family vibe hostel. You feel like you are at home and if you have been traveling for a long time this would be a lovely place to come. One thing to note which we didn't realise is that the hostel is only one room. So the beds , sofa and living area is all in one. Also the kitchen is open plan so its realy like sleeping in the living room. However we got on so well with the group and there is only 6 beds so that really wasnt a problem as we all went out together. The best location!!!

    Cozy, small, low-key, felt like home. Lovely during pre-summer season and with nice roommates. Tucked in a small street in Old Town right across from the Lithuanian embassy (?), 10 min walk to nearest bus or trolley station. Loved personal sauna, big bathtub, kitchen. Few minor things could be improved, like broken doorbell (had to knock on window), paying with credit card (machine could be more updated), toilet water flow after flushing (works if you know what button to press), and no TV.

    Hostel is central in Old Town Tallinn, so able to walk everywhere. Also, no place to lock your stuff, if that’s your thing. Quiet atmosphere, so more of a rest and recharge your battery hostel.

    Unfortunately my experience did not reflect previous high reviews. The location is great & the small size encourages a friendly atmosphere, but the 3 bunks in the communal room are child size so you can’t sit up or stretch out. They are lumpy and dirty. The hostel was cold, locals knock on the window (there’s a sign saying knock on the window as the door bell is broken), front door doesn’t always close. When you have a question its hard to find any staff and when you do they don’t really care.
