At The Center of Old Town Tallinn

Location, Price
Just remember that it is beside a salamander store. Despite it being very hard to locate because it has no huge sign outside the gate and the fact that you have to climb 3 stories up, It has an excellent location in Old Town. its really where the action is.I booked a single room but I had to use a common bathroom and toilet which for a one day stay at the center of OLD TOWN Tallinn was quite a bargain for 22euros. The fact that you also get free breakfast is indeed a real bargain. They also have laundry services and you can also buy drinks from the reception desk. I was welcomed by a cheery lady who gave me directions on where to go, eat and buy stuff in the Old Town. I truly appreciate her warm welcome.

Very Nice Hostel

Very friendly staff, Good location near Tallinn old town, Very clean hotel
There's very nice staff introducing me about what to see in Tallinn with very great smile, and fluent English. There had a self-made walking map for tourists. It's very close to the entrance of the Tallinn old town. The room is very clean and tidy. The only bad thing is there was no elevator in the building.

Very cosy

Lovely beautiful kind staff. Clean room and bathroom.
We had a fantastic stay at this place. The girls who work here are so lovely and friendly and will go out of their way to help. Room was cosy and adequate for what we required. Breakfast was good and shared bathroom was small but clean. Loved this place. Great location in the old town.

Relaxed hostel centrally located

Location, atmoshpere
tallinn's centre is like an open air museum, this hostel is good value for money and situated at the viru one of the entrances to downtown tallinn. friendly english speaking people will help you settle and can tell you things about town. the rooms look more like a home with lots of beds but it is clean and comfortable and there are just about enough showers and tables to have breakfast at. in the lounch you can use a computer, find information about free walking tours, pubtours and other tours to entertain yourself. but as soon as you go out you'll find yourself in the middle of all the tourist action and you do not even need a guide to find out the beautiful things yourself.
Nightlife Tip: Youngsters like to visit the cinema and the many little bars across the centre. They are helpful and friendly and talk to visitors without hesitation. As their language is hard to follow (also on menu's) but you'll get by not understanding things.

Great place with helpful staffs

Excellent location for travelers, restaurants and pubs are ready at the ground, staffs are great and friendly
Viru offers convenience and a budget approach for backpackers. Downstairs from the hostel, you can find the old town full of restaurants and all means of entertainment from days to night. Staffs are helpful to respond your questions on Tallinn and the relevant activities. European breakfast and pancake are free offered to the customers. And wifi is good as well. How can you complain on it? =)
Nightlife Tip: I arrived at 10pm+ but still could enjoy excellent night life in Tallinn. This is a wonderful place for the tired traveler!
