Not enough bathrooms, dirty bathrooms, very unfriendly male employees


The hostel is very well located and it's nicely decorated. A big downside for us was that there was no window in the twin room we booked. That made the room stuffy and we didn't want to stay in there for too long. Good thing the hostel provided us with two fans though. Overall a fine hostel/guesthouse.


Only one bathroom and one toilet for 6 rooms it's not enough. 2 showers in the bathroom and one doesn't work (do you take your shower with your neighbors ?). Door very difficult to open. The building looks nice but the dependence is old, not so clean, not useful. We slept also at Rottermani hostel for a less expensive price and it was so better...

That was not a very good experience. The room (it was a single room) had no window to open so it wasn´t able to get fresh air into the room. Another problem: I tried to change a reservation by telephone. Obviously the staff understood me wrong. In the end I arrived at the hostel and my reservation had been totally cancelled. The staff should definitely be more professionell to avoid such misunderstandings.

Excellent retrospective design in quiet street in Old Town. Very friendly helpful and knowledgable staff.


OldHouse is in general a good hostel. The location is very good as it is situated right in the old town and in walking distance to the harbor. There are a common rooms with TV, books and sofas. Very cozy! Also a common kitchen free to use. I did not like so much the quite unfriendly and rather bored (sole) staff member of the hostel, she was not very helpful and didn't seem to be happy beeing there on this particular day. I do not expect much, but at least a smile. Also lax security (open doors)


We had a good stay for 2 nights at the OldHouse hostel. Its location is great, the old furniture looks very nice and there is free coffee. Wireless did not work in our room because it was too far away from the access point. The room was small but very nice and seemed clean to us. Toilets/showers could have a better ventilation.

Very nice and cozy place with special decoration, right in the old town and railway station


It's a great Hostel, so confortable and with a very nice Staff. The location is perfect. 100% recomendable!!


Good value for money with perfect location. The pink-hair receptionist is very kind and helpful while the other receptionist girl is not so friendly and doesn't smile much. Also, when we arrived at the room, we found out that the wall lamp was broken and announced the room-service staff (?) but still no one came to fix it. Wifi is quite weak in the room also.


Pleasant stuff, very clean hostel. They also have locker if you want so leave something important. Possible breakfast also.
