Nice youth hostel with a welcoming atmosphere in the heart of the old town. If it is practical, this also means that the rooms on the street side are noisy at night. Fortunately, earplugs are provided. The premises are clean (having to remove shoes at the entrance should help !) and it picks up wifi pretty well from the room. The dining room and the kitchen does not offer a lot of space, which is a little penalizing for the breakfast (included, but far from essential).

This was the best hostel I stayed in during a month of travel around the region. It was clean, well located, the beds were comfortable and the sheets were new and fresh, and the staff was helpful. Best of all for me is that it's not a party hostel like so many others in the city were. This is a calmer place for those who seek that out like I do. The breakfast in the morning and free tea/coffee at all hours was a great bonus. They also can sign you up for day trips to nearby national parks or tours of the city, and they're cheaper than you'd find with any of the regular touring agencies. I can't recommend them enough - stay here! I will be back if I return to Tallinn.
