Viru Backpackers

Lovely if ramshackle place. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and frequently made pancakes for breakfast. Facilities were a bit lacking and run-down, though, and the breakfast table not nearly large enough.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Lovely if ramshackle place. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and frequently made pancakes for breakfast. Facilities were a bit lacking and run-down, though, and the breakfast table not nearly large enough. Good location in the middle of the city; some street noise in our room (which was overlooking Viru), but actually surprisingly little.
