    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will get a chance to experience Estonian culture from a very secure position, interacting with locals and travellers alike. You should be able to learn some Estonian, and have take part in cultural events. This most of all a great opportunity to develop skills in hospitality, property management systems etc for those thinking some day to open their own bed and breakfast or hostel. If you have no previous experience in customer service, this most likely is not the best fit for you.

    Our hostel is literally in THE centre of city, on the verge of Tallinn Old Town which is is a world heritage site being one of the best preserved medieval cities in the world.

    Our staff holds hostel dinners, movie nights, goes to pub quiz' and other hostel folk events. We also offer the possibility of going on free day tours across the whole of the country to learn more about the history and heritage of Estonia.
