10/10 Exceptional

Great friendy hostel in centre of Tallinn
Great hostel. Very friendly and informative staff when asked for information on trams and buses. Nice facilities. Kitchen and common room great. Kept nice and clean. Very busy with lots of people around the hostel. Nice location and only a few mins walk into city centre. Supermarket 3 mins away to the right when you come out the hostel. Tram stops opposite the hostel. Lovely twin room. Great comfortable beds. Very warm and snug. Basic but comfy. Always lots of hot water. Always lots of toilet rolls and soap in bathrooms. Noise wasn't too bad and didn't have any sleepless nights. After sightseeing all day and a few beers I was asleep within minutes. Only downside was the curtains and net curtains were filthy and had holes in. Appreciate not easy things to clean but can easily replace the net curtains for a few euros. Stayed in a lot worse places. Overall I'd give it 8/10 as far as hostels go.

10/10 Exceptional

The hostel is built into an old historical building with a great feel. Right next to the streetcar/tram and bus stop. Old town right across the street. Walking distance to the harbour for the ferries to Finland. Staff were excellent and friendly. Loved my stay here. Recommend.

Close to the old city and close to transportation
Fat Margaret's is a hostel with hotel type rooms available and they are simple fairly cheap and comfortable the hostel is really well located near the old city T and right across the street from a tram stop there is a washer and dryer to wash clothes at a reasonable price and bikes to rent and the staff is very courteous and helpful. I will return here again the next time I stay in Tallinn.
