    What a great hostel was a great location, great staff, nice facilities and in a great city. It’s really sad this hostel is closing down. You can really tell that this was a great place for many travelers over the years. This might be the last review of this hostel on the website, so with that being said, thank you Backpackers Tallinn for being so legendary and serving so many people over the years! God bless!

    Stayed in this hostel for 5 nights. The hostel is run by international volunteers and this means the knowledge about the city Tallinn is lost. I advise you to go to the tourist information point instead of asking the volunteers. Hostel itself is with 10 beds not that big. The fridge was a mess but for the rest cleanliness was ok.

    I ended up staying four nights instead of three; I love the place. It is quiet and the staff is very helpful. It is close to everything I needed and many attractions. Recommend it without reservation.

    Worst place to stay at ever! DON’T stay here. So disgusting! The hostel was so dirty (the bathrooms and the rooms) and looked like they hadn’t been cleaned for days. There were many times I saw the staff sitting around (sometimes in each other laps) when they could have at least been cleaning the place. On the last day, there was a guy with a Nazi tattoo on his forehead, which wasn’t funny. It’s cheap, yes, but pay €10 more and sleep somewhere decent with decent human beings. Or sleep in a park.

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
