Important Information

Imagine experiencing Tallinn with an Australian who wants something more from a hostel, from the people who work and live there; who wants excitement, an experience and a unique atmosphere. Imagine a hostel where 60% of the total space is a sociable area. Imagine a spacious bar which offers the chance to drink on the cheaply while meeting fellow travellers, enrolling yourself in drinking competitions like giant jenga for beginners, pool for intermediates and beer pong for experts. Imagine a hostel with a community, an experience, and an atmosphere bursting with creativity, excitement and fun... Then imagine having a public bar attached to the hostel so you can socialize, drink on the cheap, meet locals as well as other travelers - open till down every day. Having the bar allows us to go out every night drinking, but also to keep the hostel quiet in the evenings offering you a range of different options and a great environment with chill areas if you want to stay in or go to bed early. We offer clean, bright spacious rooms, with hard to beat security and the real difference, attentive and caring staff who actually take an interest in all parts of your stay in Tallinn. We will make sure to show you cool underground places unseen on the common traveller's route and help you save money and have an authentic experience by recommending local places and tours, and using the specially negotiated deals for you. We also have a fully equipped kitchen for you to use, apart from the times when we are cooking up hostel dinners, breakfast of ham and eggs or whatever else we think the hostel needs to prepare for a good night out or to deal with a hangover! Imagine us sharing with you why we love Tallinn inside out.
