          Great location in Old Town, Tallinn. Nice and quiet with no disruptions or noise at night ( also has double-glazing). Free wifi. V.helpful staff.

        • Single
          8.8

          A good place to hang on, to make new friends and to drink beer

          An unnoticeable hostel emblem at the street so it takes a lot to find the hostel.

        • Single
          5.8

          Dorm rooms are small,for 2-3 people.Location is great,right in the old town.

          The lift in the building doesn't stop at the hostel's level and I had to carry my suitcase up the stairs - that was heavy.The kitchen is small,only a couple of people can fit in at a time.No proper bathroom,sink or shower.

          Location.

          A bit overpriced for the service provided. Bathrooms were not clean. Rooms are noise and completely made for you not to stay there, I mean the curtains are made to let the light come in as another guest! Staff is cool and helpful.

          The 4 person room is actually two big appartments combined with each their own bathroom, kitchen and dining table. Good price/quality

          Got send to another hostel to get the keys of the appartment and then had to go to another block to the appartment itself. The appartment (and also the hostel) is right in the middle of the nightlife area of Tallinn, so no good if you want to sleep before 4 am

          The location is perfect, really in the center of the old town. The guy from the reception (Japanese young man) was very helpful and efficient. I was impressed with his skills in running the place. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfast is pretty good and you even have pancakes (made by the Japanese guy... The guy does everything... Lol). The wifi works perfectly in the rooms. It is a nice place to meet people from all around the world. Althought the hostel is in the old town, there is a very cheap parking lot near the ferries terminal which is 5 min walk (2€ a day!). I totally recommend it. It is a good value for your money.

          The hostel is in the 2nd floor, but the elevator doesnt stop there. You need to go by the stairs or ultimately press the 3rd floor button of the elevator and then walk down one flloor.

          The breakfast was for free and available in a friendly way. Simple service but effective. Had just what I needed. The room was clean, spacious and nice.

          It was a bit difficult to reach the hostel, need a key and so on. Good for the security but hard to find and to reach..

          Excellent location, clean rooms and the best price

          Nothing. It's good hostel for young people to stay for a couple nights and walking around

          About Viru I should say that now they are called "Boutique hostel" or smth like that. It is extremely nice, cosy, friendly hostel. Hostel looks life a big apartment with a lot of rooms. So you feel like you are at home. Location is brilliant, in the Old Town. And stuff are wonderful! Thank you, guys for travel advises and lot of interesting stories! :)

        • Single
          8.8

          Good location, nice design, friendly stuff

          The elevator doesn't stop on the first or second floor (only on the 5th) and it means that you have to go upstairs with your luggage without any assistance...

          Very good location, Friendly staff

          small kitchen, during the breakfast were crowded there

          Exellent, service-minded and helpful staff, comfortable rooms and the location couldn't be more central!

          ruim ontbijt voor hostel, in stadscentrum, gratis computer-gebruik, ruime kamer, gemeenschappelijke tv, toch niet te duur

          you wake up at 04:00 in summer because the sun rises that early in Tallinn while the windows of the hostel are big and the curtains very transparent!

          7.0

          Located in the centre of Tallinn, very convienient to the tourist attractions.

          The hostel is in ordinary people's residence building which looks quite old. The elevator doesn't stop at their floor unfortunately, so you have to carry your heavy luggage upstairs to the hostel yourself. The hostel is just like other people's spacious home, very casual and a little bit simple.

        • Couple
          10.0

          Very helpful staff, they patiently answer all kinds of questions, giving tips about restaurants, museums... Clean room, newly furbished. Well equipped kitchen. Excellent location, inside the old town.
