Single room ... The room was large bare and uncomfortable but the service was pleasant.

Description - Hostel

Tallinn Backpackers is for those with true backpacker's spirit. What was once a luxurious apartment has been transformed it in a top backpacker's hangout with bunk beds all over the place.

The location is perfect, just around the corner from the Town Hall Square and therefore just a stones-throw away from all the action. Our spacious kitchen combines a common room and is the perfect place to meet your fellow traveler or to watch movies on our big screen. We have 2 huge and luxurious bathrooms, on cold evenings we heat up the fireplace and you can try our SAUNA FOR FREE.

Also we arrange daytrips to the National Park Lahemaa, Paldiski and other interesting places in Estonia / the Baltics. We can take you out with our minibus to places you otherwise would never get.

For sure we are one of the most eccentric hostels in the Baltics. Staying with us is like sharing a flat with with friends. We are NOT for those who demand hotel treatment, but for open minded travellers. Our friendly staff, backpackers themselves, are happy to welcome you and will make sure you feel like you are at home!

How to get there

Tallinn’s Old Town is small and with a map it won’t be hard to find us at Olevimägi 11. We are very close to the ferry terminal and the train station, and also busses from the airport and bus station stop only a few minutes away from the hostel.

Coming from the harbour:

The easiest way to get here is via Uus street. Simply follow Väike Rannavärav into the old town (it becomes Uus street) then take the first street on your right, which is Olevimägi. Our building is the yellow one on the big intersection at the end.

Otherwise, if you find yourself at the Pikk street gate entrance (near the big Fat Margaret tower), walk into Old Town and take the first street on the left after the big Olevi Church. This will lead you to Sulevimägi street. Once there turn right and soon you will see on your left our yellow building at the corner of the intersection. The entrance is around the corner.
Coming from the bus station:

Take tram #2 outside the main entrance of the busstation for 5 stops and get off at the Linnahall stop. You will then be very close to the Old Town Gates at the Pikk street entrance (Fat Margaret Tower). Walk into Old Town and take the first street on the left after the big Olevi Church. This will lead you to Sulevimägi street. Once there turn right and soon you will see at the corner of the intersection on your left our yellow building . The entrance is around the corner.
Coming from the airport:

Take bus 2 outside the arrival halls for 5 stops to the A. Laikmaa stop. You will see the Viru Keskus shopping centre. Walk through it and exit into the park on the other side. Follow the crowd and paths towards the Old Town, where you will see the Viru street gate towers next to a Hesburger restaurant. Walk through the gates, past McDonald’s to the top of the street. Turn right onto Vene street and follow it to the end. We are in the yellow building straight ahead.
Coming from the train station:

Enter the old town via Nunne street (across the road). Continue following it until you see a big stone archway leading uphill on the intersection of Nunne and Pikk streets. Turn left onto Pikk street and follow it until you see a fork in the road. Take the downhill path and we are in the yellow building in front of you, on the big intersection.
Coming by taxi:

Taxis that you find on the street tend to overcharge. Try to negotiate a price with them and try not to pay more than 10 euros (150 EEK). If you can, it’s much more reliable and cheaper to order a taxi to pick you up (pay attention to the car number that they tell you) and expect to pay 50-125 EEK, depending on traffic and whether you are coming from the harbour, bus station or airport.
Coming by car:

It’s impossible to park in the old town, but the closest car park is just outside, on the end of Uus street. From there you can follow the directions from the harbour above.

Otherwise walk to the Town Halll Square (Raekoja Plats). Lai street is one block away in the nothern part of the Old Town.

Nearest airport: Tallinn Airport, 4 km, take bus nr.2 to the centre
