Stayed in the double room for 3 nights. Really well located and the staff was friendly and gave some good recommendations. Room was very comfortable, bathrooms and showers were clean although sometimes had a bad smell. Overall I would recommend because it's well priced and location is perfect. Wifi was also very fast as is the standard in Estonia. Thanks...

Room, six bed mixed, very cramped, but there were never more then four of us at one time; would NOT recommend this accommodation unless your group would book the entire dorm, on the other hand that might end up having you split-up; all of the faculty was clean but the 1st floor shower room had the very distinct odor of...

Now let me tell you, the security in this place is top notch, I won't say how, but you'll see. The place is very close to the square in the old town, so it is a good location. Building itself is old like most buildings in the area, so the rooms have thick walls and a lot of space. Kitchen...

The Hostel rooms are quite big and also perfect for a bigger group of travellers. In one floor are 2 Toilets and 4 showers. Everything was quite clean. We could check in few hours earlier, because our room was already finished. And you can leave your luggage in an closed wardrobe.

The best thing is the location, right in the heart of the Old Town of Tallinn. The dorms are big and the staff are helpful. It has the very basic things to stay to sleep and then enjoy the rest of the city. Plus, they offer a range of activities. The price is very cheap.
