You can say I spend few nights in hostels in LA, San Francisco or San Diego. Even though this hostel tries to be like one of them, it's not. I'm not sure how to react to the staff, because they were allright when we came, they were fine when we were leaving, but during the stay they hardly answered to...

We went to the old adress before we found out that they had changed location. But at last we came to the hostel, and everything was as expected. The rooms and shared spaces are ok, some of the showers might need some refurbishment to avoid damage from water. Me and my crew, two guys in the mid twenties, found the...

An ok hostel in Tallinn, in a good location just outside of the Old town. Bed linen was very clean and soft. Kitchen was dirty and needs some TLC. Not enough toilets/ showers- one shower was 'Out of order' but the sign on it seemed old so I think it has been broken for some time. Only a glass partition...

Great location (make sure you don't go to the old address Narva 9j). Few minutes walk to Vabaduse väljak and another few minutes to the top of Toompea. Rooms are spacious enough, and so are the bathrooms. Great wifi throughout the building. There weren't as many people as I expected on a weekend in June, but atmosphere should be fine...

Everything was okay. Friendly stuff. Good location, not far from the old town. But a little bit difficult to find when it was dark. Lots of people were there before new year. Shared toilets and bathroom.

We stayed at this hostel for almost a month, and I could not have been happier with our experience. The staff is very friendly and accommodating to anything that we needed. The owner is also very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. They always went above and beyond to help us out. We ate almost every meal...

Rooms are clean, common space not so much. Actually the common space is the issue of this hostel - there is no hang-around space - just two tables in the kitchen, a pool table and a playstation that i did not see people actually use, and no couch, no friendly area to meet people. If you just want a place...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
United Backpackers has been open for 2 years and has recently moved locations from our old location at Narva maantee to its present location Kaarli puiestee 11. The hostel has recently been renovated to a high standard, we hope you like what we've done with the place! We offer both private and dormitory rooms, all rooms have shared bathroom facilities and of course all rooms have free WI-FI and lockers for hire. All our rooms have their own individual theme based on countries around the world. So whilst in Tallinn you could visit London, New York or even Morocco! United Backpackers has a 24 hour reception and super friendly and helpful international staff, who between them have travelled most of the world! Our staff can organize day trips in and around Tallinn, bike hiring, Adventure Golf, and of course the legendary and totally epic 'Tallinn Bar Crawl'! Just ask our staff who will only be too happy to help you with anything you may want or need! United is proud to present "The Bunker," the coolest and cosiest common area in town! Featuring a full sized billiards table available to guests for free, a flat screen TV and PlayStation 2, computers, a large, well-equipped self-service kitchen and free book trade & board games! We have both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and snacks for sale, but should you require something more wholesome after a heavy night out, we can organize breakfast at a time of your choosing for 5 euros per person! We can't wait to welcome you to United Backpackers! Your Adventure Stars Here! ... more   less
