Old Town Backpackers Reviews

Best Hostel ive ever stayed in. We were there for xmas and the place was empty bar one canadian guy. Felt like our own house. Awesome Bathroom and lounge setup! Great place for bringing back those hot estonian girls.


Very friendly and personal feel, clean, tidy, and centrally located. Hard not to like this hostel.


This hostel was good, but it's not for everyone. It's basically someone's apartment with bunk beds everywhere. The common room doubles up as a dorm so when someone decides to go to bed it's lights out. This happened quite early on the nights we were there. The guy who seems to be in charge (Hugo) was friendly enough but it was sometimes hard to work out who were his mates, who were guests and who were staff. The shower room is huge with only one shower, which seems a bit strange considering how small the place is. The Internet is basically free but it doubles up as the hostel's computer, so expect to be interrupted if someone needs to check in or whatever. Excellent location and it's clean enough.


This is a small hostel with ten beds only but it is very nice. It feels like a home almost and the guy who worked there was very friendly. It has a great location in the center of Tallinn. I really enjoyed my stay here and can certainly recommend it.

I had a wonderful experience at the Old Town Backpackers... If you don't believe me, take a look to my score! ;)


I had a great time in the hostel, it was very clean, cozy and has a great atmosphere. I totally recommend it!


Small and cozy hostel. I met very nice people here and the atmosphere is excellent. I would come back for sure. But if you need privacy that is probably not the right place for you.



Katalin Kovats

Great location and friendly staff but slightly unusual and inconvenient mix of common room and dorm.

Neil Mackintosh

What kind of amazing youth hostels!This hostels is really unformal, uncommon, special. The staff, form Lithuania, is at same time very kind and good workers. They work 24h a days, and at teh same times take care of all the guests like as old friends!The hostel is not just on the centre of the town, it is the centre of the town! :-) It is the best meeting point of travellers, and from there can start the amazing Tallin night. Just ask to the Lithuanian staff!

Ronel Snyman

it was quiet and small but it was nice to come home to a quite place. great location. book tours early though as they tend to book up quickly.

Jessica White

the possibility of cooking and the sauna the atmosphere

Tessa Genther

Sauna was good and the people that we've met there were really laid back and fun.

Maksymilian Mulawa

The main dorm is in the lounge area so if people are sleeping (and often they are) everyone tip-toes around and wispers. it ruins the atmosphere.

paul norris

Aleksandr Yasnobulka

Leiding CHEN

Old town backpackers is hostel, which is located on Uus 14 -1- in the new part of the city's oldtown - just two minutes away from the city center. It is two room's hostel, that in all contains ten beds: for in the blue (smaler room), and six in the green (biger one), which is also being used as a common room. Blue one got's it's own door..
Inside of the hostel you would find one large bathroom, that includes one shower, eag shaped bath and also free tiny sauna thing just a few steps deeper in it. The kitchen is found close to the living room, from whom at the right sight, close to the bathroom, little area for the private needs is also located.
Place got's free parking for one car, which is sometimes, while taken, certounly, is not always awallable. So if you planning to come with your own vehicle, you should got in mind, that is better to ask for it by emailing us.
Apart from the other hostels - Old town backpackers is more known as a place for individuals, that plays the game of chess for example. So following this i would say that being in it is more like being at home. Afterwords - from my own perspective: it is enough colorful and warm place to rest.
