          Hey, I'm visiting Tallinn in May and I'm staying at this hostel. I just wanted to ask if there are rooms with private bathrooms/showers/WCs. Or does every room have to share the facilities with the rest of the floor? And are towels inclusive or do I have to bring my own or rent some? Thanks in advance!

          Hello :) There are single rooms, but I'm not sure if those have bathrooms. And they rent towels, so better bring your own if you want to save.
