clifford knowles thinks…

"The location is almost perfect, Right in the center of the old town and 5 minutes walk from almost any location. The rooms have locks and the toilets are extremely clean. Its more like a small hotel…"

Liked: Location is great, especially if you're arriving by ferry, it's ten minute's walk from the pier. It's close to the old city walls. Wifi was reliable and there's an internet PC too. Pleasant relaxing area where you can meet people. Staff are helpful with lots of info posted. It has a certain home style charm.

Disliked: I found it too cramped for a 6 foot tall person. The beds are very low and fixtures are set for shorter people. Rooms get stuffy and opening the window you will have people passing by the window a meter from your bed. Take ear plugs!

Liked: Soft beds? Some staff were really helpful.

Disliked: The tall lady staff wasn't very approachable or helpful. The younger staff can be great. Disliked staff coming into common room and speaking estonian loudly...prevents travellers from enjoying space. one room is ground floor on the corner of two streets...can be noisy. It's open 24hrs however...when I was there...the staff left many times locking the door...and stating would be back in 30mins. You were locked out.

Liked: The nicest living room i saw in an hostel. Really well located as well and cozy place if you want to relax.

Disliked: Our 6 bed bedroom's door was never locked, they keep it that way cause it's easier since they only have 2 or 3 keys for the door.

Liked: Very nice and clean hostel. I stayed at room on a ground floor which was a 5 bed dorm with no bunk beds :) Very nice. Staff was present 24/7 and supervised that we were quiet at late hours so, not so much of a party place, but very good for a good night sleep.

Disliked: None

Liked: location, atmosphere

Disliked: - staff is a little bit complicated. we had to sleep in the guesthouse (located in the neighborhood of the hostel) and didn´t get an own key. Thus, we always have to ask for a key at the reception in the hostel before we can get into our rooms. - we slept in a dorm for 6 persons, but a 7th bed was placed in our room for two nights - there was very little space

Liked: location is perfect and great value for money

Disliked: we could not pay balance with a credit card had to be cash which was ok aswe had enough money with us but anyone on a tight budget would be struggling . also the towels provided were little more than a tea towel but we asked and got another one it would be good to warn travellers on your site that they have to pay in cash on arrival
