    Excellent value for money, clean facilities, in the middle of Old Town. Staying there for 4 years in a row and will surely come again

    Noisy if staying in the room facing the street, if available, ask for the room with the windows to the yard

    I loved the location and facilities.

    I had a couple of roommates who made a lot of noise in the middle of the night and were very disrespectful. They even did not bother to apologize. My recommendation for the hostel would be to not take guest who are working in Tallinn for, instance, as food delivery or so on as the guests. They come very drunk at night and talk loudly while people are sleeping and get very defensive if asked to be quite.

    The hostel is close to the Freedom Square, the start and finish point for Tallinn marathon.

    The staff are impolite! The toilet flushing system was not strong enough to flush. I did not realise the flushing was incomplete. However, the staff told my friends openly twice the flushing issue and then talked to me openly and loudly during breakfast time that I did not flush completely. They should state clearly inside the toilet the problem of flushing and ask all to check for flushing completion. Further, I have asked their permission to use my travel cooker to make rice in the kitchen. I told them that it was a small travel cooker with very low power consumption. I intended to start cooking in the late evening before bed and then keep it on overnight so that I could have hot rice in the morning. They agreed me to do so. However, in the mid night, they requested us to take it away and told me that I consumed too much electricity. I then could not have hot rice for my breakfast before the marathon race. The price was too high, costing 313 euro for three nights. The room is too small. They just let us have a double room to house four people.
