“Good location but bed not very confortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2011

Secondary hostel of the Tallin backpackers so if you want the bar or sauna have to go to te others hostel. This one is quite and in one of the main streets of the old town. Very quite and cosy.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2010

Location was good and room was comfortable. There was abit of noise coming from the street, which is understandable as it is located on one of the main streets of Tallinn.

One major thing negative was being locked out of the building, by a door we were told couldn't be locked. Luckly we new where the hostel sister property was, Tallinn Backpakers. We walked to it which was around 10 minutes away and apon arrival was told that they didn't have a key to that door, as it was never locked!!! When they rang the phone in the hostel the member had staff had left and not been replaced meaning that we where stuck outside at 1am. With a bit of luck an Italian lady who was staying there final answered the hostel phone, after 1 hour of calling, and another person stuck outside spoke Italian and told her our prodiciment. After 2 and half hours of waiting we final was let in!!!!

Stayed August 2009, travelled as a couple
