    - OMG THE BEST HOSTEL FOR SOLO TRAVELLERS! - The STAFF are AMAZING. Every one of them! - GREAT atmosphere, even had a creative writing class?! - Great pub crawl. Karaoke bar was actually funny af, with hipster vibes and a pool table. - Located in the heart of the city, trams within 5-10min walk, restaurants close by. - SPOTLESS kitchen, lounge, bathroom and bedrooms! (Shoes off) - Comfy beds with sockets (nice and warm rooms too during winter) - Felt very safe - Airport not far at all

    First off, the hostel is located in the heart of the city. The staff was super friendly. After arriving, I was a bit bummed out with how tired I was that I didn’t have time to socialize much. The main floor of the hostel is a perfect location to meet some new friends, have some drinks, and some good chats:)! The girls at the hostel who checked us in were super nice, quite helpful and super easy going and we stayed in an 8 bed and the room was clean and cozy. Definitely a little gem. Love, love.

    Really enjoyed it here, was pretty busy despite being off season, and some of the staff appeared to be passing through / 'backpackers' so up for hanging out with the guests / will say hi to you around the hostel, so had a welcoming atmosphere. Great location in the old town, but still close to some supermarkets etc, plenty food / drink places nearby. Staff appeared to be conscious about security, regularly checking entrance / when people coming and going. Great big common area.

    This is a beautiful hostel with a huge and comfy common room and a full kitchen. The staff were friendly, helpful and fun. The only thing is that the drains need to be cleaned as the smell coming out of them on the top floor is putrid and you could fell the springs coming through one of the mattresses. However, I was able to move bed and all was well.

    Good place. Third floor has a fantastic bathroom- the best I’ve ever seen in a hostel. Kitchen was small but well equipped. However the was very little atmosphere perhaps due to it being off season. Clean, pleasant and overall a nice stay.

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
