Pros: The Dancing Eesti has a spacious kitchen with all the basic necessary conveniences. It has a very social vibe and I imagine that you could meet knew people very easily there if you felt like it. The Australian owner of the hostel is friendly and knows the city really well. The rooms are okay; each one has several outlets,...

I actually booked into a different hostel with the same check-in location because I didn't want the party hostel vibe the dancing eesti claims but when I checked in, the other hostel apparently isn't a hostel anymore? so they put me in a...

Wow, a lot of angry reviews. Today after speaking with staff and seeing how they removed a awful roommate of mine I'm happy to leave a review for this hostel. It's a classy little place in the coolest building. Come here when you wanna chill in a nice grand old building. It's alternative and you are greeted with a nice...
