Of the Hostel's I stayed at in Tallinn this was my favourite. They don't have a ton of rooms or space, but the staff is friendly, the place is cozy and clean. The shower is great. The common room is great (upstairs and down). They don't have the barcrawls of Tallinn Backpackers (although the staff will show you their fav... More

Pretty average for a hostel - lots of stairs to climb up to get to the reception. Water pressure was pathetic in the shower, bed not particularly comfy, but at least it the heating was decent! Staff were pleasant and helpful.

There were 21 of us in Tallinn for the weekend. We had booked the whole hostel. It was ideal. Close to all the nightlife, plenty of room and clean. Staff were really helpful and came out with us both nights to show us round - they may have had a drink or two as well!! Great weekend and highly recommended... More

The Flying Kiwi is one of the best hostels I've ever been to. The common room was small and clean, with 10 beds and individual reading lights (!). I also stayed on a double room, which was comfortable and clean. The best surprise was the common bathroom, which has been recently refurbished and feels pretty new. Everything was clean and...

We stayed at Double Room. Location is great, stuff looked very friendly, but room was dirty (except for bed linen, it was fresh and clean)! Instead of curtains there was some rag. Room was very cold, though we were there in April. In room there is no any chair or another place to seat (except only dirty windowsill and bed... More

Great hostel in the perfect location. We stayed in one of the double rooms in July 2012. Everything is very clean, we never had to wait for either bathroom or shower and the staff is very friendly. They answer every e-mail promptly and even helped us carry up our luggage. The "funny smell in the stairs" mentioned in previous reviews... More

The location is central and easy to find, just up the road from the main square and close to a great convenience store. The staff are wonderfully helpful and great fun, they certainly do all they can to make your trip special. As Tallinn has become such a party city they cater for that and can show you the very...

Fantastic location In the old town, some steep steps to get up but once you're at the top the hostel is warm and comfortable. Unfortunately on our first night we were bitten by bed bugs which is why we can't give the hostel a better rating. The staff were great though, moved us into a new room straight away, also... More

I stayed with 7 friends in the dorm room. The flatbeds were a refreshing change from bunks, and the room was warm and comfortable, even with minus temperatures and snow. Hostel has ample showers, toilets and kitchens and as an added bonus a sauna for when you get in from the cold. The host, Jenn, was the best part. From... More
