Vanalinna Hostel

Jaani 4, Haapsalu, Estonia


Vanalinna Hostel's new economy rooms are in the heart of Haapsalu's old town. We are located next to Bishop´s Castle wall, 200 m from the birdwatchers' tower. Short walk to restaurants and museums, directly across from the Old Town Square. 28 beds in 12 2-3 bed rooms. From 12-24 you can visit our bar, pool and bowling facility, all in the same house. The hostel was built two years ago. We have a two-story building in the Old Town section of Haapsalu. The main attraction of our Old Town is a medieval castle about 100 yards from our front door. The castle grounds hosts many cultural and sports events during the year. On the first floor we have a new six lane Brunswick bowling complex. The floors have been sound-proofed. We have twelve rooms, mostly double occupancy with private bathroom, some with triple occupancy. There is a kitchen area and a room for watching television and reading. The hostel is situated directly opposite a square with beautifull landscape. And within 5 minutes walking you reach the shores of the Baltic Sea. Normally we dont serve breakfast but for special groups we do. On the floor below the bowling complex there is sauna and steam baths and a relaxing room with bar and television.

From Tallinn airport you can either rent a car and drive 100 km to Haapsalu or go to the bus station and take the bus from tallinn to Haapsalu. There are buses every hour. The buses terminate at the old railway station in Haapsalu. The local bus line runs just in front of the railway station and one stop on the bus is the castle and from there, a 1 minute walk takes you to our hostel.


24 hours cancellation.
