The staff was very friendly and fixed some minor issues right away. The dual bedroom apartment was new, spacious and clean. It was looking to be a very nice experience for us (2 adults & 3 kids). But then came the night: from 23:00 to 05:00 it became clear that we were sleeping opposite to a bar/disco. Every couple of... More

The review in this hostel is good and I decided to stay in this hostel. It is in fact one of the options to stay in the oldtown of Tallinn. I was visiting at the peak of summer in the early of August. The temperature was closed to 30 degree during day time and the day time was long until... More

I booked this hostel because it offers parking for my motorbike, but I was quite impressed with the olde world look of the interior, the big kitchen and the excellent location. Nevertheless, it was not noisy. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

I stayed for 8 nights in a single room in the guesthouse. I was travelling both for work and for sightseeing, so the desk in the room was a plus, besides the free wifi. I had breakfast in the main building, which is really close to the guesthouse and it was ok. When cheese or tomatoes or coffee was finished,... More

The Oldhouse is generally excellent. It probably provides the cheapest private rooms near the Old City. In hot weather like now, groundfloor rooms can be a problem as you can´t leave the window open. The breakfast room / kitchen is crowded in the morning.

We were firstly located in a twin room with no possibility of opening the window, for any fresh air and oxygen, as we complained and did not accept a fan as a solution (this would have not brought any new oxygen to the room) the receptionist managed to reallocate us. The new room was ok, small but clean and comfortable.... More

The rooms actually look like on the photos of the web. I had a simple, individual room (nr. 6) in the guest house, which is some 20 m from the main house, in the same street. The guest house is furbished in an antique style but cosy and with details. The kitchen is fully equipped, free internet without password, enough... More

Great little budget hostel. I stayed in a single room for 3 nights and got regular use of the kitchen on site. I bought the breakfast one morning and I was unimpressed. It was much easier and better to buy food at the grocery store around the corner. The location was superb for exploring the city. I would use this... More

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights in a twin private room. The room is pretty small with barely enough room for 2 bags and the single beds. There are 2 shower/toilets on the ground floor and also on the first floor. We were on the first floor and I had to ask for the bathrooms to be... More

I stayed in a private room at the old house guesthouse on my visit to Tallinn. It is very convenient in the old town. They let me check into my room early, and the bed was very comfortable. At night, my room got very cold, and I couldn't figure out how to make it warmer, but the big warm blankets... More
