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...

The facilities are excellent, and the distance from town is not an issue with a regular trolley bus service...
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...

The Sleeeping Maris Tallinn
"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. It's a crappy hostel in spectacularly bad shape. The "Sleeping Maris" is just above the "Dancing Eesti", which appears to be a tad bit better, whose kitchen is shared and to whose bathrooms/showers you have access to if you stay at Sleeping Maris. Even with this, they're awfully low on...

This is a 3-room flat, while 2 rooms are served as 6-bed dorms, the remaining one is for the owners (a couple), Yeah! the locals are also living with you.

Other than that it was pretty good place to stay. The staff were nice to me and the...
HI - Tallinn - Merevaik Hostel

This is an example of a building from the Soviet period, but the staff are kind and helpful.

A bar is available at this hostel for a reasonable service, and you can find a good supermarket just one foot from here."...

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!
