Liked: The location is almost perfect, Right in the center of the old town and 5 minutes walk from almost any location. The rooms have locks and the toilets are extremely clean. Its more like a small hotel than a hostel. It is spread over two buildings 50 yards apart and both almost exactly the same. Ample kitchen space and the communal areas have the most amazing classic decor and furniture to boot. The reception is staffed round the clock and with no curfew. This is a Must if our staying in Tallinn.

Disliked: All i would say as a negative is this is not the place to stay to meet people, But for a bit of down time, Or if you are travelling as a couple its perfect.

Liked: The location was is excellent! It is located in the Old Town but on the outskirts- it's only a 5 minute walk to the heart of the Old Town but far enough away so that you wouldn't be bothered by the raucousness of people heading out for a drink in Tallinn :)

Disliked: Nothing at all.

Liked: The Oldhouse Hostel is very well situated, allowing you to quickly get to anywhere in the city with only a short walk. The hostel was basic but had a nice old fashioned atmosphere and everything you could need for a short stay, including use of the kitchen. I'd definitely recommend it as a starting point for discovering Tallinn.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
