the small in the room.
I like the people running the show, there knowledge of the city, there friendliness, the cleanness of the hostel and it location
Everything and people
Good value for money Good kitchen Good location I would stay there again.
You will find all the comfort you need if you are used to having people around. In bathroom- a 1800 watts hair dryer, clean shower cabins and toilets. Just remember to bring your own soap bar or do as I did- pour some liquid soap from the sink dispensers in a cup. Living area is a low-buzzing social hub with a cooking corner, reception desk, computers and sofas. There are two fridges where you can keep your food and there is a shelf you can put unfinished food for others to use after you leave. I helped myself with some bread and caviar :) In general, the place is not too big so I felt really at ease there. Even though I didn't attend any event- Red Emperor organises them daily.
It was too hot in the room. It is true that I was there in mid August, but the default blanket was for colder time. I just used it to cover my waist and was tossing in turning with most of my clothes off.
The windows of dorms face the courtyard, which has people having conversations thru out the night. Because it is summer the dorm windows are kept open since there is no A/C so lots of noise travels in.
Easy to feel at home Super friendly staff Nice clean and good showers Good, clean kitchen Nice, comfortable and social common room I liked having a bar that felt like a part of my home
Quite a lot of noise from the street outside at night, with people coming and going to and from the bar. Only an issue if you want to sleep before 2 am. Earplugs are your friend.
Location. Just outside of the old town . In short walking distance to Viking port as well.
It is like a mixture of pub, teenager club and college dormitory, but, in terrible heigine status. I don't complain staff who actually are friendly and try hard to keep tidy. There was a terrible smell in tHe room I stayed. I tried hard to hold my breadth when I firstly entered. Anyway, I got used to it as long as I stayed long, you know that.. It was a complete nightmare.
Staff was amazing. Felt like friends by the time I had to leave after 4 nights Excellent location, right at the entrance of old town Hostel, while very "bohemian" looking (for a lack of a better term) is well maintained and kept extremely clean Excellent social vibe in the hostel, encouraged by the way the hostel is set up
Bit too noisy at night, for the windows give on some internal courtyard where mostly clients of the hostel hang out all night being rowdy and not really caring. I don't think bad sleep is exclusive to this hostel but is rather a common hostel theme
Location is very central. Staff were very helpful and capable in dealing with any situations that arose. Kitchen is well-equipped. The quirky decorations and furniture.
The location was really great and easy to find when coming from airport. the stuff was great and helpful, suggested places to visit and check, bed was clean, comfy and nice!
the room was a bit too hot, bar next doors so for some might seem too loud but after tiring walks wasn't an obstacle for falling asleep!
Super people, super location, super atmosphere !!))
The staff is amazing. The guys are really cool, extremely nice and helpful. Good job guys!! Super clean.
The structure needs a looot of work! Terrible lighting system in the bedroom, the light was so feelble that in the evening/night it was impossible to read anything. Just one socket in the room, very uncomfortable if you wanted to use your phone while charging. No wifi in the bedroom, again, very uncomfortable if you want to check things without the noise and chaos of the kitchen (the only area where you get a good signal). The window of the bedroom could not be closed properly, it is not a big deal in the summer, but in winter it must be freezing! The curtain was torn up and could not stop the light properly. There were just 4 toilets. Weird doors to the showers/some toilets, starting from about knee-level. Sometimes there is no water for some hours :( I hope the managers/owners will invest some money in making the improvements the hostel needs.
Everything!!! My Wife & I just spent several weeks traveling thru 5 different countries staying in a variety of accommodations from luxury spa resorts on the coast, to unique hostels. By far, this place was the best of them all...we will return for an extended stay next time!!!
Clean rooms and bathrooms, ideal location for exploring the old town.
Wifi signal was terrible outside of the reception area.
location, cleaniness, friendly atmosphere, bar and restaurant attached
car parking is expensive, and hard to manage
Awesome staff (especially), facilities, location, very clean. Was a pleasure to stay!
Excellent everything :)) Big rest area, kitchen with all facilities too. And surely great staff!
Very nice hostel in the old town. On the other side of the street there is a Supermarket opened till 23h, so it is perfekt to buy Food and Drinks there. It was easy to meet nice other travellers there for coocking together, exploring tallinn etc. :) The Red Emporer Bar (next to the Hostel) is a real hotspot for Young People in Talllinn, they Play great Music.
Because of the bar, it can be loud in some nights.
everthing was good especially the friendly staff, enjoyable living room and very good location.
Staffs are very nice, Location is good.
hostel is nearby the bar, it is very noisy and can't sleep well at night
Very cool & social hostel! Great bar next door too. Liz in reception gave us some great tips on where to go & what to do! Rosie made sure our room was lovely & clean too. A+
The staff was awesome, very friendly and made us feel right at home. The location was perfect, right in old town, and just a little walk from the clubs and the monuments. I'll be deffinetly be coming back next time.
