I arrived latish and it was not a problem for the host. A comment in advance was enough and 24h reception is a cool thing indeed. Russian-speaking people around are definitely an advantage, although I am good at languages - those who are not but are fond of travelling, will be glad. A girl helped me to adjust the coffee-machine....

Nice and friendly place in a excellent location in an old town which is in a league of its own. Showers on the same floor would be a bonus but who cares 🙂 The only objection is about the silly guideline of 200 letters☹️

We felt really comfortable with this hostel. The service of this outstanding and really friendly hostel is pretty good. For the price of 10 Euro per night is it a silent place with nice guests in center of old town. I could recommend it for anyone to 100 percent.

Great welcome here and there is a real social vibe here. You can buy beers from the fridge and was one of my favourite hostels in Talinn. The people who work there seem happy and welcoming which made us enjoy our stay more.

Very popular and bussy. I think they need a bit more stuff. i stay two night, never see enyone to clean up dorm/ common area. Common area is small compared to number of beds. Location exellent and stuff friendly. Perhaps better during at week.

Nice place ti stay for city center sightseeing, everything is 5 min away and rooms are big with lot of space. I've stayed in 14-bed room and it was not crowded. Toilettes and showers are clean, and you can relax in basement restroom.

Everything as expected from a hostel, reseption and kitchen are closed from 23:30 to 8:00 so it is not convenient if you plan to leave early or come back late. They offer free tea and coffee and free small towel

Staff was very polite and considerate. Location is close to all key attractions: in the middle of everything. There were plenty of washrooms and showers. And everything was clean - everything seemed to be cleaned properly daily. Overall, I had a great time staying here.
