Property Description

Imagine Tallinn and a bearded Australian. Imagine he creates a hostel with a community, an experience, and an atmosphere bursting with creativity, excitement and fun... Then imagine having a public bar attached to the hostel so you can socialize, drink on the cheap, meet locals as well as other travelers - open till dawn every day.

Having the bar allows us to go out every night drinking, but also to keep the hostel quiet in the evenings offering you a range of different options and a great environment with chill areas if you want to stay in or go to bed early.

We offer clean, bright spacious rooms, with hard to beat security and the real difference, attentive and caring staff who actually take an interest in all parts of your stay in Tallinn. We will make sure to show you cool underground places unseen on the common traveller's route and help you save money and have an authentic experience by recommending local places and tours, and using the specially negotiated deals for you.

We also have a fully equipped kitchen for you to use, apart from the times when we are cooking up hostel dinners, breakfast of ham and eggs or whatever else we think the hostel needs to prepare for a good night out or to deal with a hangover!

Please note:

Secure PARKING in our courtyard is available but due to the limited number of places please email us in advance. (9 euros per day)
Given that we have our own bar, we only accept booking of individuals AGED OVER 18.
GROUPS bigger then 10 and Stag parties are strongly advised to contact us directly about house rules and conditions.

Please note:
No American Express card accepted nor on the spot, not for bookings. View House Rules

    Best staff of any hostel I’ve visited. Great happy hour drinks. I originally booked three nights but I ended up booking five more. Lots of space compared to other hostels I have stayed at. Can’t recommend it enough. Proximity to the Old Town is very convenient, too.

    Pretty decent, the place is easy to find and conveniently located at the edge of the old town. The staff are friendly enough, although they don't use a desk so I didn't really know who to ask about trips or tours, they could do with a few more recommendations or something around, not just the bar activities. The bar was cool though, cheap drinks and live music both nights I was there. Plus an impossible pub quiz! Overall a pleasant experience, but some daytime activities would go down a treat

    It's fine. Not sure it's "the best hostel in Tallinn", but it is fine. Facilities are weird with the bathrooms on the other side of the building from the dorms. Dorms weren't that nice and the lockers are small. Staff was okay, but didn't seem very enthusiastic about anything going on. Wasn't the worst hostel, but not the best.

Red Emperor Bar&Hostel says

I reckon what guests really appreciate about our hostel is that we offer a community experience for both solo travellers and small groups. Our international family of staff has but one goal, to constantly improve or features and facilities for our guests! That being said, our biggest assets to help accomplish this has got to be our family of staff and our unbeatable location here in the beautiful Old Town of Tallinn . Having traveled ourselves, stayed and worked in plenty of hostels - we made sure there would be no queues for the showers, the mattresses are comfy, the sheets are pretty and you have everything you need from guests computers to cheese graters. We have also moved the party out of our common room and opened Red Emperor Bar next door - so you can meet both locals and travelers and it can be your choice to stay up late or have a night in.
The staff host daily activities such as hostel dinners, bowling nights, beer tastings and even beer pong tournaments to make meeting other travelers even easier! Ha, and that is just in our hostel. We then have one of the TOP public bars in Tallinn next door which hosts karaoke nights, pub quizzes, open mic nights and live bands (international and local) on most weekends!
We have also built up a network with all the tours and activities here so you don´t need the hassle of booking things, you are on holiday in the end! These include Day trips to Lahemaa National Park, the creepy old soviet prison and the old naval base in Paldiski and daily pub crawls to name a few. Or we can give you a map, a bike or skateboard and take you to all the places that aren´t on the tourist maps!
Come stay with us and we promise you won´t regret it Luke, Manager
