Old Town Munkenhof Reviews

Old Town Munkenhof is a hostel in the Old Town of Tallinn, Estonia.

The Location

Old Town Munkenhof is located at the east side of Tallinn's Old Town, about three minutes' walking from the Viru Gate. The hostel is very well located; Tallinn's Old Town is small and all places of interest can easily be covered by foot from the hostel. The hostel is just a few metres away from the city wall and many bars and restaurants are just a few minutes away. The old town square is only three hundred meters from the hostel.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Divided over three floors, Old Town Munkenhof hostel offers both private and dorm rooms. Dorm rooms consist of bunk beds with comfortable mattresses. While the rooms look nice at first, there are a few minor disadvantages. The door of the ten-bed dorm is quite noisy and the lock is quite vulnerable, so guests are frequently struggling to get it open. There are not nearly enough power outlets in the room. There are only four outlets in the ten-bed dorm, so bringing a powerbank can be useful. There are big lockers where you can put your valuables, or even a hand-luggage-sized suitcase. Upon check-in, you will receive a key for the room and the locker. However, you are requested to leave the key at the reception every time you go out, decreasing the safety of using a locker.

Old Town Munkenhof has a few bathrooms -- enough to avoid morning queues. Showers are only on the second and third floor, but there are also a few toilets on the ground floor. The hostel is very clean and good Wi-Fi is available in the entire hostel.

Common Spaces

A big part of the hostel's ground floor is the common spaces; all are very spacious. When you enter the hostel, you will see the reception first, which is attended day and night. There is a living room, consisting of two parts, including a TV, couches and comfy seats, a foosball table, and some board games. There is also a kitchen with all the utilities you may need to cook or store food.


Old Town Munkenhof is a great choice if you are looking for a hostel in Tallinn. The location is excellent and the common rooms are spacious. Some small issues -- like the amount of power outlets -- could be improved to make it the perfect hostel.
