    About

    Viru Backpackers Hostel is a small, friendly place on the main street of Tallinn's old town, just around the corner from the Town Hall, offering cheap private accommodation with an international atmosphere. The prime location means it's easy to reach all of the cultural hot spots like the Town Hall Square and the famous Olde Hansa Restaurant. Tallinn’s most popular bar district is also just around the corner, providing a fabulous nightlife and making the location very safe at the same time. The Viru Backpackers Hostel provides quiet, clean and spacious rooms and informal surroundings. Some rooms have a great view of the main street. If you want more action, you are always welcome to visit the Viru’s affiliate hostel Tallinn Backpackers, where there is always time for parties, movie nights, tabletop football, Wii sports, or a free visit to the sauna. If you are interested in seeing more of Estonia, just ask the friendly staff about the day trips that are organised to the harbour town of Paldiski and to Lahemaa National Park.
