I really wanted to like this place, but it fell short for me. Pros: The staff is exceptionally nice and very helpful. It is within the walls of old town which is perfect for exploring. It's nearby a grocery market. The view out the window in the early morning is gorgeous. Cons: It was pretty run down and dirty. Our... More

Cheap, quiet, nicely decorated and well-located in the Old Town. The rooms were well-furnished and the beds very comfortable. The good thing is there are no bunk beds. The bathrooms were clean and you have access to the shared kitchen. Everything was excellent, I truly enjoyed my stay and I would recommend it.

We booked the apartments in the old downtown of Tallinn. Very professional welcome, we could store our luggage and start a tour in the city while the flat was made ready. Interiors are very nice: equipments chosen with care (though no microwave oven) and there were 2 bedrooms giving onto a backyard. The main issue is the noise insulation of... More

Our family of five (two adults, two young kids, and a baby) stayed here for one night. It was definitely a hostel (shared bathrooms, thin walls, etc.) but not overly loud. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the whole place just feels homey. The beds are comfortable, the blankets warm enough. It's right in the center of Old Town so... More

The location is good, easy for tourists. It is near the main transportation, ferry pier, and the old town city centre. The hostel is clean and quiet. Staff are friendly and helpful. You can ask for city map or anything you need.

I keep returning to the OldHouse Hostel in Tallinn, because it makes one feel at home, has nice rooms without double bunks, is furnished like an old Tallinn mansion and is a friendly and welcoming place. Last but not least, it offers free parking for my motorbike.

It is apparent that the staff take their jobs seriously at this establishment. They were really hands on and willing to help. They have excellent customer service skills. From check in, to walking you to your room and getting you a cab right away on check out. Just like the last review says, if you like to sleep late and... More

This hostels is in the down town area just out side the walls, so everything is pretty close by. Had a single room, which is in a nother building, where several private rooms were. So up to 5-6 guests share a shower and 2 toilets. The kitchen is large. Only negative thing is that the walls are reallt thin, so... More

Got there by the time they had the terrace installed in the back yard! The weather was great I was one of the first to enjoy it (great for morning coffee), though it is shared with parking lot but not too busy. Rooms and facilities are nice and clean, staff helpful and lots of sights just around the corner also... More
