It was one of the cheapest place to stay near Tallinn old town. We got two beds room and it was ok: quite large, clean but looks like some furniture was bought 20 years ago. Only one double 220V socket in very strange place, in one height as bed. To charge your devices you need to pull bed. There was...

The hostel is close to the ferries terminal and even closer (across the road) to the old town, which is more than a perfect location. First I had a private single room ensuite, a very good choice with a clean bathroom and comfortable bed. Besides, being on the first floor, I didn't have to worry about carrying my kind of...

We stayed in a private room. The room was clean and tidy. The kitchen and common room is modern and well equipped. The hostel is very close to the bus stop to the AirPort and to the old town. Only down side is that the hot water in the shower came and went a lot. We were very pleased with...

We came to Tallinn via ferry from Helsinki. We booked for a twin ensuite at this hostel. From the ferry terminal, it was about a 15 mins straight walk and this hostel was located towards the entrance of the old town. Staffs were friendly and approachable. Our room was spacious and clean. Wifi was good as well. The kitchen cum...

This hostel is located just outside the old town walls and also walking distance to the ferry terminal (handy if arriving or departing by ferry). There is a good supermarket 5 minute walk as well. We stayed in a double room with private bathroom. The bathroom was very small but the room itself was a very good size with plenty...

I've visited Fat Margaret this new year for a week. It's quite comfortable, stuff are friendly mostly english and estonian speaking but I guess they understand russian too, 'cause there was lots of russian viaitors. The hostel has great location, it's just across the road from the Old town! The only problem is with hot water in shower.

Right next to Old Town and only 20 euros per night! For private room including bathroom! i loved this place. Had a private room with its own bathroom However said "fully equipped kitchen". It did not have colander or dishbrushes. But otherwise it was just about perfect, and I made my own meals 3 out of 4 of the days.

Fat Margarets was just ok... Overall I felt the room was a little dirty. I stayed in a room with it's own bathroom, and it smelled like something had died in the drain. I had the staff come and check out the smell twice, but they could not get rid of it. It got to the point that you had...

We stayed at Fat Margarets for two nights and there is nothing really big to complain about. The room was big and clean. The only thing was that the employees didn't seem very interested in showing us some interesting locations in the city. But other than that everything was fine.
