First hostel in my trips! Oct 09, 2012
Always in my trips i chose to "book" small hotels or apartments. In the past, never stayed in a hostel. I found Viru hostel from site, with 60euro for 2 nights, for private room (not share).

Viru hostel housed only few meters far away from Viru gates and 1 minute walk from Tallinn Town hall, namely the center of old city!

If i remember well hostel is 3rd floor and the building has elevator to move. If you feel tired, one floor higher there is massage with only 25 euro for 50minutes(independent).

My room was small but very clean. Stuff (a guy from Japan) and 2 other girls were very polite and friendly.

Hostel has 2 bathrooms for "peak" hours..:)

Hostel has a small fridge with beverages and beers available for the guests (price 1 euro for the beverages). Kitchen is ok, and the bathroom clean and comfortable.

If you need taxi for airport, you must walk 100 meters from Viru entrance until Viru gates and many taxis wait there, then no problem.

And for the end i found the price little expensive for this hostel....
My room.

nice quiet place in the middle of city centre Jun 21, 2009
was there one night, enjoyed that it was so quiet as I needed sleep, but I found it weird that there is no sign on the street for the place.., hm.., so it was not that easy to find.

Place is clean, nice rooms, excellent location.

Lying in the Heart of old town , this party hostel has a nice atmosphere, cheep beer, soccer table and big screen cinema.

There is no lockers for valuables so you have to leave it under your bed, not the safest hostel ,but i had no problems what so ever.

They are showing movies inside one of the dorms so its not the most quiet place , but after 23.00 most people are going out. We kept it going until 7AM so the guests really know how to party :)

Viru Backpackers Overview

Viru Backpackers has a superb location on Tallinn's main Old Town street. Viru (which means Estonia in Finnish is a tiny cozy place and mostly suitable for those who want it a bit more quiet and relaxed.The hostel contains mainly private rooms, sized from singles till 4 bed rooms. Some of them have a great view overlooking the buzzling Viru street. Eccentric paintings, made by an Estonian artist, and nostalgic Soviet posters add to the character of the hostel.If you like the idea of having a bit more privacy, but at the same time you want some hostel action too: no worries, you are welcome at Tallinn Backpackers to hang out and party there, or to use the free sauna. It's only a few minutes walk between both buildings and you can ask the staff in Viru to make a call in advance to heat the sauna up for you before you get to the Tallinn Backpackers building.Viru Backpackers has in total 7 rooms which can accommodate in total 17 persons. There are 2 singles, a double, a twin, 2 triples and a 4 bed room. We have a flexible allocation system that gives you the chance to book the triple and 4 bed rooms as twins and doubles as well. Depending on the season, some rooms might function as dorms.All rooms are furnished and the beds are prepared with linen and a The-Kitchen-in-Viru-Backpackerstowel. You will get your own set of keys to your room and the building allowing for 24 hour access.There is a common area where you can watch TV and DVD's, or meet up with the other guests. For those who want to prepare their own food, we have a small but fully equipped kitchen.
