This was a great hostel. I was doing a solo Euro trip for my 30th birthday and my birthday proper came during my stay here. It was one of the best times I've ever had. The location was convenient. The room was nice and comfortable. The staff were awesome. Let's not beat around the bush, this is a party hostel....

Most friendly staff I've met to date. Extremely inclusive in all activities hostel or other. Highly recommend this hostel so central and they know the town well. Drinks are super cheap and happy hour is for two hours! Even in the slow season this hostel is the best one I've stayed in yet. Dave

The hostel was very warm (we were there in late Nov), the staff were helpful and friendly throughout our brief stay. It's definitely suited to the younger traveler but we didn't feel out of place and were not pressured into partying or playing drinking games (as suggested in previous reviews). It was warm, clean, and spacious, the beds were comfortable...

You can't go wrong here. Unless you hate making friends and having fun. The room was clean enough and nice enough, and I slept well enough. But what really makes this place special is the friendly atmosphere and plethora of fun activities! Tallinn Backpackers offers a variety of day trips and activities to sign up for. There is a nightly...

Great place with a huge common area. In the evening, the place has the perfect atmosphere after dinner with drinking games, rules, very cheap beers followed by a free pub crawl. All the credit goes to the staff as they go out their way to make sure you're having a ball. Would go back here with a second thought!

This hostel has a great location, right in the heart of the old town. We stayed for three nights and we were lucky to have considerate people in our dorm. We had two early nights due to a fwrry to xatch and tours, and we slept through any noise. The hostel goes quiet aftwr 11pm so its not too bad....

The atmosphere in the common room is without compare, you meet so many people from around the world and make new friends, especially thanks to the "No Social Media after 7pm" -rule. I have nothing bad to say about this hostel (stayed there 4 times so far), and would recommend it :) The only bad thing about it is that...

I will start this review by admitting it was a mistake for me to stay here. I originally planned to stay at the partner hostel The Monk's Bonk but it was full and they directed me to Tallinn Backpackers. I was desperate and most other hostels were full so I booked it without doing much research. I spent three nights...
