Partymode, cheap and fun Oct 22, 2011
Okay, this is one of the best hostels I have stayed at.

It’s run by a group mainly by a friendly bunch of aussies. They are very welcoming and will make you feel at home immediately.

This hostel is certainly more suited to young travelers, but I knew what I was getting into. With daily bar crawls and an internal bar, expect nightlife. Certainly you can still see all the lovely Tallinn sights during the day, but once it hits about 7PM people generally begin drinking.

This means from 7PM-11PM the party will be in the communal area, before heading out to the bars for those who are really up for it. Good mix of nationalities with lots of interesting people, just introduce yourself, noone bites.

The location is fairly central Old Town, so you can get to anywhere fairly easily. Beds were very comfortable, but they were bunk beds ofcourse. Bathrooms luxurious for hostels and kept incredibly clean.

Sure, if you are a timid insocialable person and a light sleeper, this hostel might not be ideal and you could opt for a hotel. However, for most travelers in the true sense of the word and young folk, I would not hesitate to highly recommend Tallinn Backpackers.Do read Trip Advisor for more reviews as I feel my literary ability cannot do it justice. Apologies about not adding pictures, but it’s fair to say I was not usually in a good state to carry a camera. Had a blast, love you Estonia!

A perfect hostel Apr 03, 2010
I loved that hostel. It has a great atmosphere where everything is made to meet other travellers.

I have never seen a so luxurious bathroom, even in an expensive hotel, there was a sauna and a jacuzzi for free but I did not use them.

Make sure you can have a bed in the dormit

ory for 8 people on the top of the building it is the only one with the ensuite bathroom, I heard that there are only one bathroom for about 26 beds...

The room was airy with 2 windows with comfortable beds and lockers.

The staff is very friendly and helpful.

There is a great common area with a lively bar at night and 2 computers with free Internet access.

The location is very good in a quiet part of old town but within easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, nightlife.

I had a great time there and met a lot of people.

The little issue might be that you have to take off your shoes at the entry and make sure that nobody is in the sauna before having your shower or using the toilets ;)

I highly recommend to stay at Tallinn Backpackers Hostel if you want a cheap well located hostel and meet a lot of travellers.

I checked into the Tallinn Backpackers and then checked out again about an hour later.

I wasnt happy with it at all.

It was a very dingy place with quite bad rooms.

The main dorm doubled as the common room, so if you wanted to sleep during the day you have no chance as all the hungover Brits sit there watching TV and playing cards.

The only good points I can think of:

1. The hostel is centrally located and the staff were very friendly.

2. The bathroom is quite exotic (it must have been a mansion previously) as the shower has a spa/jacuzzi.

3. They refunded my money when i chose to check out again.

There is also only one shower per floor and the toilet is also in the same room so you can find yourself waiting a long time to use either of them....

I dont recommend this place at all.
