“50 euros room to stay overnight”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

It is one option amongst others to stay overnight if you pass through Estonia to other destination and you have kids that get tired to travel for a long time, otherwise we would not bother with this place since it is in the middle of nothing.

We do not mention anything about service since there is none and such kind of accommodation does not require any service anyway except taking your money in the end.
But we would like to mention that the obsense of service is better than the poor service.
So, we are ok with that.
Also, there was a nice surprise in the breakfast when we found many small sandwiches on our table in the kitchen.

The room is basic and good for two adults and one kid with shower and toilet.
Beds and pillows are comfortable.
Blanket needs to be warmer since it is getting cold even in the summer in Baltic states.
The room smells by mold and we were thinking if there are bed insects.

There is a playground for kids in the middle.

The place can become really noisy since walls are from paper if someone comes at late night as it happened to us when hordes of Lithuanians came to their rooms and bothered our sleep.

Nearby there is a national park with smelly dirty beach surrounded by swamps (10-15 mins walk).

Pärnu beach that is in the center is far from that guest house.
The beach is overcrowded and has a really not deep water, you need to walk kilometers to get into deep water, the sea sand is dirty and the water does not look good, parking places are really expensive (almost 4 euros per hour, half an hour free) and difficult to find free space.
There are some beaches for nudists, separate for women and male that is very confusing because you think you enter a normal beach but then some females start to shout on you if you are a male because you entered women's beach but the sign does not tell that you are not allowed to enter.
Resume: we would never go to Pärnu for sea holiday because the hotels/hostels are overpriced, overcrowded, no free parkings easily available, poor beach, and the weather is typical baltic weather with its winds, rains, cold water and no sun.

By the way, we found that Ventspils town and beaches are really opposite to Pärnu: free parking everywhere, beautiful beaches with white sand, accommodation is cheaper than 50 euros (rented half of a house for 25 Ls per day).

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

This hostel wasn't bad, it was clean (for the most part) and had a bathroom en suite, which was nice even in our tiny little room. Our beds weren't very comfy, and they just had some little blankets that didn't look the cleanest, so I slept with my own. There's a full kitchen downstairs and balconys to hang out on. I couldn't tell you who ran the place, as it wasn't a traditional hostel with a front desk or anything like that. We checked in with some random person we found, paid someone else we found walking around, and left without anyone ever checking us out. also, the location is a little far from the main streets so you have to walk, take a bus (1€ each way) or rent a bike from them (10€ for a bike for the day.)

You have to make up your own mind on this one, which I still can't do after staying there 2 nights! LOL on one hand it was nice to kind of be left alone and feel like you were at home again and on the other there was no real service, you literally paid for a room, period.
