Map and Directions


Our hostel is located on Viru Street, the main street in old town (so if you get lost you can always ask around). We are located on Viru 5, above the Salamander shoe shop. We have a small sign on the gate to the right of Salamander shoe shop. Ring bell number 2, take the first door on your left and walk up the stairs to the second floor. If you decide to take a cab ask them to drop you off at the Hesburger at flower market, just in front of the Viru gate (cars can’t go further).

From the Airport:
Take bus number 2 to the A.Laikmaa stop at the Viru shopping center and walk from there to the Old Town. You will see a small flower market: walk there through the Viru Gates and you will end up in Viru Street.

From the Bus Station:
Take bus 17 or 23 to Vabaduse Väljak, the bus stop at a big square. Cross the parking lot and walk into Harju street. Turn at the tourist office to the right into Kuninga Street, pass the Olde Hansa restaurant and you end up in Viru Street.

From the Harbor:
Walk from the port in the direction of the Old Town: take a left into Mere Street until the roundabout. Take a right there through the Viru Gates and you will end up in Viru Street. Otherwise, cross the street from the port to Uus street and on the end of that take a right into Viru street.
