Tallinn, with a bit over 400,000 people, is the capital of Estonia. It is also the main seaport for the nation and a very popular tourist destination. Tallinn is accessible by plane, bus, train, and ferry. There is also a helicopter service (Copterline) that operates from Helsinki. Inside the city there are buses, trams, and trolleys which form the public transport system.
Tallinn hostels, are the most cost-efficient of lodging options here and range upward from about 10 dollars in cost. Estonia in general is a good value destination for backpackers and other budget travelers.
The Old City is a must-see when you stay at a Tallinn hostel. Amazingly well-preserved and in good shape, it was inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage List on 1997. You can easily spend half a day in the Old City, shopping, sightseeing, and just enjoying a warm summer day. Be prepared though, in the summertime the Old City is very crowded with tourists and travelers.
Other parts of Tallinn follow a more typical (some might say boring) building style. Freedom Square (Vabaduse Väljak) and the notorious Hotel Viru are sights worth seeing. There is also the Tallinn Zoo and some museums to see. Tallinn hostels are also near the Saku Suurhall, which is the biggest concert space in all of Estonia, and also houses a great shopping center area.
Tallinn hostels are a safe travel destination, provided you keep your common sense with you. The city is notorious for its credit card scams, and most of them take place in so-called "Gentlemen's Clubs". Some areas of the city are known to locals for being more or less prone to crime. Keep your ears open for this kind of information.

"In a town without many options, this hostel is not bad. The hostel is located in Tallin's new town which basically means that it's in an area with lot of soviet block apartment bulidings. The hostel is on the bottom floor of one of them and is easily accesible using the bus system (about 20 minutes from old town where the fun is). The rooms are nice, clean, and newly renovated. The bathrooms also nice and there is a plus -- a free...
ALUR Hostel Tallinn Old Town
"ALUR Hostel Tallinn Old Town, this bright, modern hostel, is housed in a modernised old building and as a result, you have the best of both worlds –- some quirky features combined with modern facilities. Entrance is by door buzzer and reception is on the first floor, so it's straight up the stairs when you arrive. The reception area is tiny; squeeze in more than two backpackers with rucksacks and you'll be falling over each others' legs and...

"Oldhouse Hostel is one of the first hostels you get to once you enter the old town of Tallinn. It is very convenient to get to from either of the ferry ports.

From the Linda Lines, walk straight from the ferry into old town and it is on your left....

The Dancing Eesti
"Bit of a disappointment - The good -- The beds were fine, lockable storage was provided (you get the key with your room key so no need for a padlock). The bad -- the bathrooms were in a serious state of disrepair, the reception wasn't staffed half the time so you sometimes just had to wait for someone to turn up, the noise from the bar downstairs went on until about four in the morning and carried right up into the rooms (I can normally sleep...

The Sleeeping Maris Tallinn
"Canceled my reservation - I booked this hostel 6 months before my trip. But last minute they canceled my reservation. Was so disappointed. Had to look for another hostel." … "Friendly people, but POS people - If not for the great conversations we had (some of the time), this place would receive and well deserve 1 star only.

"Great location, dirty hostel - Good -- Location, price, spacy kitchen, sauna. Bad -- We stayed in hostel during the end of autum and the beginning of winter. Despite the fact that there was cold temperature outside, our room was without heating. The alternative -- small electric heating ventilator, which is actually very uncomfortable for using. If you use it, after few minutes you start to feel how your skin is getting dryer, and the...
Red Emperor Hostel
"Red Emperor Hostel is a classic hostel, with a chill out atmosphere, cozy rooms, and maybe the opposite feeling of staying at a commercial hostel chain. As a semi-hostel/semi-pub or -club, this place can give its guests the most of what they need, with a decent accommodation, and a nice variety of entertainment options from which to choose. The Location As Tallinn is a small place, almost everything is close, and this hostel is no...
"FeelGood feels better than just good - A hostel can be clean, on a five-star location, have a tv room, a kitchen, a washing machine and wifi but dreams about a stay in a beautiful Baltic capital can always be shattered by noisy dorm-buddies-for-a-night (or six). I think the reviews here draw very polite international backpackers and other travelers. Am grateful to the laid-back staff and slept like a baby. Highly recommended. Bravo for 'shoes...

"They had NO bed for me - Even though I booked two months ago, they had no bed available for me. The receptionist said something like "We are no longer using that site for booking". I sent several emails the week before, but all I got was an automated email saying that I would soon receive a reply from a human. I was never contacted. Also, I noticed that the prices had increased by 50% over the price I was quoted. This experience is something...

Hostel "Tehnika 16"
"Should be closed immediately - Well, I would actually stay again in disguise as a cop to book the bunch. look for another place -- dont even doubt. Although I stayed there before, the Russian lady wanted money upfront, which is fine but we had to get it. So, we got the money and the next morning before we had a chance to pay, she shouted banging on the door, I want money. strange. When we checked out the day after, my colleague left his phone...
Tallinn Backpackers Hostel
"Tallinn Backpackers is also called Old Town Backpackers and is ideally located in the old town. It is a rather unique hostel with quirky additions. The greatest draw-card has to be the gorgeous free sauna and big screen to watch one of the many movies they have. This is ideal in the cold winter months especially since Tallinn is one of the coldest cities in Europe! The one dorm room is laid out like a mini-golf course, complete with green...

"Vana Tom (formerly known as the Old Barn Hostel) is a wonderful hostel in a wonderful town. The owners are friendly and the hostel is everything that a hostel should be – cheap, clean and in an excellent location. Coming by ferry or by air it can be confusing getting into the centre of town since most buses/trams stop outside at the Viru Hotel. It is only a short, although not very well signposted, walk to Raekoja plats, the main square....

Tallinn Travel Tips & Suggestions
Tallinn is a great city. I found the mixture of Russian and Estonian culture very interesting. The city is a bargain for Westerners. The Estonians and Russians were very helpful and friendly. It is a safe city. Westerners don't need a visa to travel there!
