I chose this hotel because it was the cheapest option with good reviews and a good location. I was not disappointed. I stayed there for two nights and paid less than $50 each, including taxes, breakfast, and wireless Internet. The hotel is very clean and modern looking, but of course relatively basic. It looks like a crossover between university housing and a designer hotel. The beds are small, as in most European hotels, but very comfortable.
The hotel building is directly adjacent to the railway station. However, there is (unfortunately, one could say) very little rail traffic in Estonia, hence there is only very little noise and even if your window looks towards the platforms your privacy is hardly affected. In particular, there seemed to be no trains leaving during the late evening/night, hence the platforms are empty at those times.
The shower is Scandinavian, i.e. no separate shower cabin. The shower is separated from the rest of the bathroom only by a glass door and you basically stand on the bathroom floor while you shower.
The hotel is a 10 minute walk away from the centre of the old town (just walk down Nunne and you won't be able to miss it) and a 20-30min walk away from the ferry terminals. The intercity bus terminal (for Eurolines, etc.) is a bit further away, but a taxi is less than 100 EEK, i.e. less than $9. Nonetheless the location, even though convenient, isn't really "nice". Therefore only 4/5 on location.
The breakfast buffet was great (and included in the price). You do get some nice local fare here. Wireless Internet was fast and reliable (and also included in the price). The front desk was very helpful. Overall, a great choice for budget conscious travellers, and quiet too.
