    Clean (apart from windows and kitchen bin issue), safe and quiet, well located. Spacious rooms, big towels, great showers on the 1st floor with hot water 24/7. There are a shower on the 2nd and 3d floors as well. Fast internet on the pc in the common room.

    I stayed overnight in a double room at the end of January, have stayed several times before. The staff still ignore “Special requests” box in the booking form so if you do need to make things happen ask once again via Booked.net. There is now liquid soap in toilets but not everywhere; no hot water in the toilets on the 2nd floor. Extremely cold in rooms (shower one as well) when it’s just 0c outside and no strong wind so ask for a fan heater. Radiators seem to work only in the kitchen. Dirty windows in rooms. No shower caddies or a garbage bin in the women's shower room. No dishwasher, only very, very used sponge and washing-up liquid in a mineral water bottle. The kitchen bin was full all day long. Somehow I was initially offered a room on the 3d floor while there were free rooms on the 2nd. Ask for a 2nd floor room, it’s way far convenient (the staircase to the 3d floor is too steep and narrow). The first room was pretty gloomy as it had only a ceiling lamp in it while the second one had a dropped ceiling and a bedside lamp and was really bright. оN the other hand, the first one had a closet and three chest of drawers while the second one had only a couple of chairs and a bedside table. Doormats in rooms seem to be essential in snowy weather when the boots get wet and dirty but there aren’t any.

    Location

    Terrible building condition, desperately needs refurbishment. Room was tiny and closet-like. Staff - indifferent. Worst hostel I've ever stayed!

    It was very convienient that we had a possibility to leave our luggage before check-in, because we came to Talinn early morning. Also we could leave our luggage after check-out until evening. An exterior of hostel didn't look very good, but fortunately our room was cozy enough. The hostel is near to the harbour so a location is convienient when you're going to ferry, for example to Helsinki :) But the location isn't far from Old Town too.

    We stayed at the hotel for 4 days, but our room wasn't cleaned any time throughout our stay. The dining room and the kitchen didn't look very cozy... But in conclusion it was value for money :) Soo, we really weren't disappointed because we paid for it not very much.

    - Location: Right across from Fat Margaret Tower and an easy walk to the old city. Also fairly close to the ferry terminals. - Wifi in the rooms which generally worked well - Nice cafeteria area to eat and shared fridge

    - Shower area was a bit dirty and the location is a bit strange (right across from reception). - Beds were a bit springy though nothing horrible

    The staff is really kind. She told me a lot about Estonia. It's my second time to visit Estonia but I think I know more about this country this time. I like the kitchen. It helps me to save a lot on food!

    Not clean enough but it is acceptable to me.

    the best location. it takes 3 minutes to reach the Old Town (the historical Tallinn district). There are a tram and bus stop near hostel. It is convenient to ride by a coach to a bus station, a railway station or a ferry station. And there is a store where we bought food. Staff was really friendly.

    It`d be better if toilettes, showers ans kitchen are cleaner. It was rainy outdoors, so we had water on the windowsill. It is the very old building, so it needs repairing.

    The staff were friendly and knowledgable. Good location and my room was big.

    The toilets are a bit grotty.

    Nice stuff. Hostel is located very close to Old town. Statoil with great mint cacao (recommend!) is just behind the hostel. Low prices and cosy rooms. Railway station is in 10 minutes by foot, tram station just opposite the building.

    The location is very good – just outside the old town. The room itself was clean and spacious. The hostel is near a rather busy intersection but the noise was not disturbing during the night. The free wi-fi had a good signal in the room.

    The kitchen was very poorly equipped. There was only one double burner hot plate so we had to wait in line to prepare our meal. There was no mat in the shower, at least on the second floor. They have obvious problems with the cleanliness of the hostel (excluding the room), there were dust-bunnies and French fries on the floor in the common room. They even had not bothered to clean the snow off the stairs at the front door so they were slippery.

    The price - you just can't really beat that.

    Second-floor shower (just weird - and hot water runs out after the first person to use it in the morning), second-floor toilet (paper runs out after the first person to use it in the morning - and the cable hanging above your head - and no soap by the sink), windows in the second-floor rooms (paper thin), noise from the street. In other words, if you don't care the least for the comfort, go for it. But be prepared.

    We only stayed for one night, so I guess we could have missed some details. We had a nice room with a balcony overlooking the Fat Margaret Tower. The view was beautiful. Very soft and comfortable bed. Clean toilet and clean, comfortable shower cabins. Spacious kitchen with all the equipment to cook and eat except for an oven. Great location: near the "Rimi" supermarket, where we bought food, the Old Town, and the tram and bus stops. We finished our Old city tour late at night and it was so nice to find our hostel just across the road. And getting on the bus to the airport the morning after was also very easy as the bus stop is just two minutes walk from the hostel. Very nice interiors, spacious and full of light and air. Lounge room with the Internet acsess (there's one PC in the room) and a table soccer or something alike. Very friendly and helpful staff.

    There was no hot water in the toilet on our floor and no liquid soap, only bar one, which seems unhygienic to me. All that is going on in the corridor can be perfectly heard, that can make some inconveniences if the floormates are coming back late at night. No closet in the room. Pretty cold in the room. No oven, no big cups in the kitchen. Estonian menu on the PC (we had some troubles with the Wi-Fi on our laptop), so we had to call on a staff member for help.

    The location is excellent for the old city, the port and also the train station, and even having a walk or jog along Cultural Kilometer which is at the back of the hostel.

    The kitchen can be more well-equipped... though the refrigerator is great.
