Liked: It has a kitchen, has a top location an is cheap.

Disliked: The kitchen and the communial room are quite cozy but located in the cellar. Some doors are partly defect, beds (at least in the big sleeping hall) are too old to be used. Litteraly, you can feel every spring of the mattrasses.

Liked: Great location!

Disliked: I thought Alur hostel was very dirty, I walked in bare feet from the shower up to the room, and my feet were very dirty. My travel buddy was robbed of his belt and head phones! The atmosphere was very party and student like, I guess that's ok if you're looking for a holiday like that, but we were not. The shower head was not even attached to the wall. I have stayed in a lot of hostels and this was by far the worst one.

Liked: They did have trouble with the room so they reassigned us to another hostel nearby. It is good to know that they take responsability if something happens and give you another choice of quality. Very happy with the room, hostel and staff. I would glady recommend this hostel and Tallinn.

Disliked: Pretty much nothing.

Liked: It was really central, but the price for that was extremely good. Very nice staff!! ...but please change their shifts! It´s not healthy to let people organize travelers´ check-out if they have been working for more than 12 hours and all night long already!

Disliked: Very few, not very clean sanitary facilities. Very noisy during the weekend. But how would the staff be able to control things going on in the sleeping room if there is only one guy working in the cellar room and being so tired by a shift that goes from 8pm to 8am?
