The hostel bathroom and kitchen are clean and the rooms had a lot of space. We were a little worried about the bar, but didn't hear anything at night. The last star is missing, because there were no lights and sockets at each bed and the bedlinen wasn't that clean.

Free WiFi, complementary pitchers of beer, decent & cosy rooms - they stay was quite good. Common kitchen for cooking as well. The ambience was also quite different & trendy. The bathrooms were common areas - otherwise the place was decent for a cheap & affordable stay. The hostel is quite near to Town Hall Square and you can roam...

One of the most consistently great places to go to. You can head there almost any night and there's something to do. Best trivia/quiz in Tallinn on Thursdays. Staff is rough, but lovable. If you're looking for an international crowd, you'll almost always find one here.

Never visited the hostel, but the bar is amazing. Been going at least twice a week for years for the great atmosphere and awesome staff. Play pool, giant jenga or just hang out at the bar - you will always find a friendly face to talk to.

I visit this establishment regularly. The staff is always friendly, there's always beer on the tap and they frequently have events to keep it fresh. There's table football and pool to beat your inferior friends at so what more could you want!

With a very friendly staff this hostel can assure you a good night of sleep and a vibrant afternoon to meet new travelers from all over the world. The price for accommodation is reasonable and so are the prices of drinks, both in the hostel and in the bar. If you haven´t decided which hostel to sleep I would recommend...

This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. My friends and I stayed here over Christmas and had an amazing time. The staff are more than helpful, welcoming, and just fun to chill with. They know the city and have great recommendations. If you don't stay at the Red Emperor, you are missing out!

The staff were so nice, reception are 24h open, we could check in one day before the reservation because we were kicked out of the ferry (haha we thought we could sleep there). Free breakfast and a pint of beer :) There had nice tips for travelers too. Cleanliness were good in the bathroom and common area but the room...

Red Emperor proved to be a really good albeit basic sort of backpackers. Rooms are clean and quiet, rooms basically have a bed (I had a 4-bed dorm) and that's it. That said, you won't be in your room much. Staff at the hostel are very friendly and helpful and there's nightly events every day! I was most impressed with...

I stayed here for four nights and had the best time. The location is great and easy to find. The common areas are great to cook/ meet people in and the staff are friendly. Rooms are spacious. I couldn't say one bad thing about my stay! I've left with only good memories
