    This is a fantastic hostel to live in. The staff really make sure that you have the best time and even go out with you to show you around. Great activities at the hostel and easy to interact with other travellers. Would 100% recommend!

    Location was amazing, inside the old town easy to walk from the port or centre of town. Kitchen was excellent and the common room. The staff were also amazing and helpful. The only downside was one common shower and at night the common room was locked so only 1 toilet at night as well.

    We were cycling around Estonia and for the last night decided to stay in Tallin Backpackers. They allowed us to take our bikes inside and the staff was overall very helpful and amazing!

    Really good location and awesome staff. The only two things that was not so good was that the room was quiet hot during the summer night and there was only one shower for the hostel.

    Well located hostel in the old town, walking distance to everything. No real atmosphere but this may have been because of a lack of bookings for the 2 days I was here. Helpful staff

    Amazing location, especially if you're coming from Helsinki on the ferry. The whole place was very clean and really nice bathroom but old and very small lockers and a problem with the key. Cool lounge area but with no organised activities it was very quiet so difficult to meet other travellers. Staff very enthusiastic but seemed new so not massively knowledgeable

    Great little base for exploring. Staff were friendly. Free table football in the common room. Only one shower for the entire hostel though, which was pretty mouldy.

    Tallinn Backpackers is in a nice location, but unfortunately it's a little beat up, there aren't security lockers in the rooms, which means it's hard to get to and organize your things and everyone's bags are laying everywhere. The other thing that was really annoying is that there's only one combined toilet/shower per floor, which meant there were 18 of us sharing one shower and trying to get ready in the morning. It's just not as nice as the photos would suggest and I wouldn't book it again.

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
