Clean and cozy facilities, located a few minutes walk from Viru värav. Cheap beer during happy hours every evening. Rooms are spacious, so you will not feel cramped even in the 8-bed dorm. Bring a long power cable though, if you want to charge your devices from the top bunk. Look for staff hosted events. When I stayed, we went... More

I've been here on a study trip for two nights. The staff is very friendly and good. The place just looks very nice, the rooms are neat and the breakfast we got was the best I ever had in a hostel. I would recommend this place to anybody who is planning to travel to Tallin

We were playing a gig at the bar next to the hostel and stayed one night. The rooms and staff were nice. Even though the party went on in the bar after I left I couldn't hear any noise during the night in our room except my band mates snoring. But you can't blame the place for that ;) The... More

Perfect place for young travellers - the bar downstairs is great, the staff are extremely helpful, the kitchen has everything you'd need, the room we had (two of us sharing the treehouse) was great.
