This is in a brilliant location, right in the Old Town. Staff were terrific and helpful when booking, though when I arrived after a 25 hour bus trip it would've been nice to be allowed to dump my bags and have a shower before having to do the whole registration thing. Facilities are what I would expect from a reasonably priced hostel in a tourist location. Clean and tidy.

We slept 2 days with my wife in the OldHouse Gesthouse on the beginning of March. The location is ideal in the heart of the old town. The Gesthouse is binded with the homonymous hostel, where the single help desk is located, 100 m away. So there is no help desk at the Gesthouse, what is a little disappointing for a gesthouse.

Concerning the rooms, they are firmly old fashion, as well as the WC and the 2 shower stalls in the same washroom... The kitchen is nice, the heating is ok, and the shared space is very clean, which is a good point when there is much snow outside.

At last, the twin rooms are very little. But the price is very competitive for this location. The hostel is not much more expensive (2€ more), and might be better.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a private room, take the hostel rather than the gesthouse

This is a perfect place for those who don't spend a lot of time in bed, want to live in the center and still travel on budget. 5 min. walk to the main square and supermarket, 10 min. walk to the train station and 15 min. to the ferry terminal.
Friendly staff, clean toilet/shower rooms, free coffee and tea, good kitchen.

If you need complete silence at night - do not stay here!

Room Tip: Beware that twin rooms on the ground floor face the cobblestone street with car and people traffic and the windows are very low, so you might feel like drawing the curtains all the time. We stayed in double room #2 on the ground floor which was luckily facing the back yard, so there was no noise at all. However this room is just next to the common room with TV set but it was always quiet there after 23:00 according to the hostel rules.

We stayed in a double room for 5 nights for 150 euros approx. The room was large and very warm. We got given an electric oil heater which we could use at our own discretion. The room was clean and bed linen was changed every 3 days approx. The only problem with this room is that it is next to the lounge where the communal area is. There have been no major problems with noise during our stay but I can foresee the problems this room can have on light sleepers, especially during peak season with younger guests about. Apart from that I cannot fault the room. The toilets are very clean and are cleaned by the staff every 1-2 hours. The staff are friendly and approachable.

You have to leave your key at reception on your way out of the hostel. The reception is 24 hours and so we found no problems in getting into the hostel.

If you value independence and privacy, these apartments are wonderful. We stayed in Vene 21. Our guide took us there from the reception, showing us several of the local attractions we may wish to visit. She booked us into a restaurant when we asked her to, booked us a taxi to the airport, and arranged a visit into the closed Town Hall for us. The apartment had an en-suite bathroom with hot shower, a large open plan living area with a comfortable sofa and all the kitchen appliances we could need, and a large bedroom with a comfortable bed and clean linen. The heating worked well and kept a comfortable atmosphere. The wallpaper was flowery and the place would not be to everyone's taste, but it was a home away from home, a base for us to see the city from and be comfortable in. The cleaner came in and cleaned and changed towels and linen. Old House knew we were onhoneymoon, and left us a gift and their congratulations, which we thought was wonderfully personal service. We were greeted and made to feel valued throughout our whole trip, nothing was too much to ask for. However, if you are looking for a sparkly white travelodge style hotel, this is not the place for you. It is ideal for people who like B&B's and staying in apartments. Also the whole trip only cost us £160 for 2 of us for 5 days, very good value for money.
