Old Town Backpackers

Tallinn Old Town Backpackers is a small, cosy place for travelers to call home for a short time, to drop their backpacks and recharge their batteries before continuing on their voyage of discovery. The hostel is located in a remodeled 17th to 18th century building. A small hostel, ideal for individual travelers with true backpacker's spirit who might be more interested in getting to know other travelers over a cup of tea before heading out to get to know each other over a pint of beer.

The Dorm is our living room, kitchen and common room. We offer a home for travelers in the oldest hostel in town. We are a hostel for travel-minded worldly backpackers with Books, Maps, Wi-Fi, Free Tea and Coffee and in excellent location to explore Tallinn's Old Town.

I was volunteering in the old town backpackers for 3 weeks. The vibes of the hostel is cozy. It was a great experience for me, learned a lot of new things from there. The workers treat me real good even i am not good at everything but they still very patient teaching me. They have a lot of sister hostel and a bar. And as a volunteer you can have a half price offer to join every event they organize and the drinks. It will be great if the hostel's reception is 24 hours. Apart of this, everything is perfect.

I had a lovely time volunteering at Egle's hostel. The hostel is cosy, intimate atmosphere and feels more like home than a hostel. I loved the kitchen - looks so charming with the brick walls and lots of details there.
Egle is very kind, mindful and a good conversationalist . She also bakes great pancakes! :D
I would definitely recommend volunteering at this place. 10/10 :)

The hostel is small and unique, the vibe is incredible since you can feel yourself sharing an apartment with the guests. Every space is connected and you can easily make friends and have nice chats.
Egle is kind, funny and try to make you have the best time.
The city is charming and easy to discover. I strictly recommend the experience in Tallin.
