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!

    A great hostel, and I will use this again when I travel the Baltics. The only complaint is that it could do with lockers (even though the place was generally safe). The staff were fellow backpackers so they know the score. A great price, and minutes from the best sights in the city. I'd certainly recommend!

    I loved my time here, it had such a homely feel. When you’ve been travelling for a bit it’s nice to stay somewhere so relaxed and a bit quieter. However since it’s small you are able to get to know and speak to the other people staying at the hostel. Also it had everything you needed and the location was great.

    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.

    Very quaint little hostel. Though it felt a bit more like a small guesthouse or Couchsurfing place. There is only six beds. So in general it’s very quite at night. So you can get a good night sleep. Only real issue was the shower/bath. There was only one. Which made it rush to get the bathroom before anyone else. The other facilities were good. And the place was in a prime location. I was a bit surprised checking out. As there was no staff and it was around 10:30hrs. But overall a good hostel.

    LOVED this place - very cosy, great decor. I've stayed in many hostels and I'd say this goes into my top 3! It's a great place to unwind and feel at home. Super convenient sleeping in the same room as the kitchen and bathroom etc - no need to zap out with a key card or anything. The kitchen is basic but has everything you need except for an oven. There's a SAUNA too!

    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.

    No lockers but you’re also sharing with very few people. Kitchen doesn’t have microwave or oven, just stove. Massive shower. Good location. Towels available if you ask. Our first night, in addition to the 6 beds, there was also someone sleeping on the couch and someone sleeping on the windowsill?? Cool concept, would stay again

    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.
