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.

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.

The Monk's Bunk
"I miss Monk's sooo much! - Stayed here in October 2012, and any time I think of my stay there it makes me happy -- Monks was an awesome hostel! Brilliantly designed, having the reception/bar in the middle of the common room means you'll be chatting and making friends the minute you check in. Perfect for everyone -- those who want to chill can relax on the couches watching movies, those who like to party can drink at the bar, or go with Monks...
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
"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...
"Unbeatable location! - This hostel is in the perfect spot, in historic Vana Tallinn (old town). It was a convenient, easy walk to all the highlights of Tallinn! The hostel staff was polite. The hostel itself was pretty amazingly decorated/colourful! Breakfast was free and included freshly made pancakes! The showers and toilets were at different locations throughout the hostel and were all clean and seemed adequate to the number of guests they...

Red Emperor Hostel
"Nice hostel and good location - Stayed there 2 nights. The location is good; the hostel is located in the Old Town, very close to the main attractions. It is also located at a walking distance to ferry terminal, for example. In general the hostel is clean and very safe. Doors are always locked, and only guests are allowed to enter. There is a kitchen, with stove, oven, fridge and a large table. There is a supermarket in front of the hostel,...
"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...

"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.

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...

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!
