I would avoid this hostel. It is basically like some dude has put a load of bunk beds in his living room and let's his mates crash round every night, except some have to pay. When the beds are full, the owner offers (paying and pre-booked) guests the sofa next to the (smelly) bunny in the main living area which everyone must pass through to access the bedroom - albeit in return for a small discount. Over-booking seems to be very common.

The living and sleeping areas are not particuarly clean and there is only one bathroom to service 12-14 guests (depending on how over booked he is). There is no separate toilet which means there is a big queue in the morning even just to use the toilet. The bathroom smells and is in a generally poor condition with parts of the fittings coming away from the walls.

That being said, it is in a good central location and the bunny is popular and a good "hook" - but that is seriously it. There is plenty of choice in Tallinn and even the hotels are cheap (many of which include free breakfast and dinner). Do not waste 12 euros per night to sleep here!

Room Tip: There is only one room - unless you get the sofa!

This review is TOTALLY FAKE and does not represent our hostel. It is someone who we have just had a problem with who has promised to punish us. See our reviews on any of the booking sites where you have to make a reservation and show-up to leave a review.

Good: Very helpful staff, great location. Cheap.

Bad: Rickety bunks, so every move by your bunkmate is felt. Strong mold smell in bathroom, so didn't use the shower. 12 people in one room.

Our bunks are 3 months old and in excellent condition. There is no smell of mold in the bathroom. We try to be eco and usually clean with vinegar, so perhaps that was the smell?

This is a lovely hostel to stay at.It s in the heart of Old Tallinn and convenient to transport too.The staff are welcoming and friendly, and go out of their way to help, as well as being very generous hosts. the place is small so meeting people is easy, and very sociable.Of course, the bunny is a great asset, tamest bunny I ve ever seen and so cute, guaranteed to relax the nerves of a frazzled traveller.I felt relaxed and at home here. I would recommend staying here.

Hostels like these are what makes travel through Europe such an experience. It was great to be in a small place that felt like a community where you're able to interact with everyone around you. The bunny theme was cool and the mascot, Mr. Nomsalot really is the best bunny ever. The owners were really nice as well. If you're visiting Tallinn you should definitely stay here.
