    I had a nice stay at this hostel! The main room and kitchen were great and really cozy. Since it wasn’t peak time, there wasn’t a lot of people, but it was okay. I did the pub crawl with their sister hostel, and had a blast! The only complaint is that there was only one bathroom for all the rooms, in the morning had to wait a while.

    It is perfectly located just a few minutes from the Town Hall Square and the staff were so genuine and truly amazing! There is only one shower though, but other than that, everything was great.

    it has a huge common room and a good kitchen, and the rooms are comfortable. the lockers are in the hallway though, and there's only one bathroom per floor and the common room closes overnight so the morning rush is a bit tricky. it's in the old town though so great location and the staff are all lovely. good atmosphere

    Really cool little hostel located perfectly in the heart of old town. Staff are really nice, and the common room has a cool atmosphere, but do note that the common room is closed from midnight to 8am. There are only 26 beds (I think) so you can nearly get to know everyone if you like, but again, disclaimer, there are only 1.5 bathrooms shared between the lower rooms. With those two caveats, this is a great place to stay!

    Great location in the heart of the old city and a 10 minute walk to Telliskivi. The beds are really thin so you can feel the springs but the rest of the facilities are fine.

    The staff are lovely here. I will say that personally i didnt experience that much of a party atmosphere but maybe that's due to the time of the year. Tallinn is a small town so you can't really go wrong with the location. The ensuite toilets were clean. The door to our room didnt lock and if you're on a top bunk you have to wire up an extension cord to charge stuff which can be inconvenient. You get what you pay for, i enjoyed my stay here.

    Might be the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed at! Bring slippers if you don't like walking around in socks. Common area is super cozy with lots of outlets and couches. Dorm beds have lots of outlets. Lockers hold a small backpack, but are in the hall. Kitchen is well-equipped, but closed midnight--8am, so if you're an early riser prepare to have breakfast in your room. There's only a single shower for a whole floor, and only two toilets (one in the shower room and one downstairs).

    Not a bad hostel but probably wouldn’t stay again. Bathroom was clean but smelt really bad and the door to the bedroom was see through which was quite annoying when people put the light on outside the door. Perfect location right in old town and common room was huge.

Tallinn Backpackers says

I think what makes us special is that we don't allow large groups to book into our hostel, so we have the ability to have one-on-one contact with each and every guest. We really try to make everyone feel like family, and will all our local knowledge we can guide anyone in the right direction for what Tallinn has to offer.
Each night a staff member cooks a hostel dinner for only â'¬3 per serving and they even clean the plate for you! This is a good start before it's time to hit up our small bar for happy hour, but don't be careless after 7.30pm when the only rule of the hostel comes into play... Facebook Violation; during happy hour Facebook is banned in the common room, allowing for more group interaction.
We're located in the middle of Tallinn's historical Old Town, only an arms length away from all the main attractions. One place all staff recommend is 'III Drakon', a real medieval tavern that serves elk soup with generous pies and the right beer for so cheap that you can buy for your friends as well. All servings are â'¬1 and the service stays true to medieval times, so this should not be missed.
We're ideally suited for solo travellers between the ages of 18 and 35. It's a hostel for backpackers, run by backpackers, and staff are both locals and backpackers themselves. Matt, Owner/Manager
