Red Emperor proved to be a really good albeit basic sort of backpackers. Rooms are clean and quiet, rooms basically have a bed (I had a 4-bed dorm) and that's it. That said, you won't be in your room much. Staff at the hostel are very friendly and helpful and there's nightly events every day! I was most impressed with...

I stayed here for four nights and had the best time. The location is great and easy to find. The common areas are great to cook/ meet people in and the staff are friendly. Rooms are spacious. I couldn't say one bad thing about my stay! I've left with only good memories

Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Estonian. The staff is incredibly helpful, the place is clean, the price is very affordable and they make you feel at home. Loved the all around atmosphere and met a lot of cool people. The beer is cheap and cold. All together I have no complaints, thanks for letting us stay at the Red Emperor!

Super nice (and helpful) staff, super clean rooms, and a cool bar—pretty much everything I want in a hostel. Location is also perfect, right next to Old Town. I've rarely had a better hostel experience, and I would come back here in a heartbeat. Thanks, guys.

Stumbled across this place to meet with some friends for a drink and it was actually a pretty cool little spot. Caters to a younger crowd, but fun for meeting new people and having some drinks! They have many fun games as well.

This is not the luxury place to stay and when you go to hostel or the bar you already know that. They organize karaoke evenings on mondays and on weekends you can enjoy some live rock performances. The place tends to become noisy when there is a good rock band playing. Prices are fair.

I kind of missed the social aspect that I really enjoyed in other hostels. Stuff and fellow travelers were all doing their own thing. Price is above average but in my opinion not really worth it. In general it was alright but nothing special. If you're going there to Tallinn to get drunk I bet you will have a good...

I've stayed in the Red emperor with a friend for 3 nights and I highly recommend it. The dorms are big and the beds are good. You get free towels and the showers are big and warm.

We had a great time at the bar. The prices are reasonable, great music, fun atmosphere, plenty of games and activities. The service was prompt and courteous. I would absolutely recommend this bar to anyone looking for a vibe. Be sure to arrive there after 9, otherwise it's pretty dead there.
