Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great place with cheapest price in town. Amazing location - 300m to romantic promenade, 100m to all old town restaurants and cafes. Raining outside, we was playing bowling at the same place. Love Haapsalu!

We are sorry for this kind of bad memories from our place. We are working hard every day to avoid technical problems at the bowling alley, but as in the bowling alley there is a lot of electronics and the pinsetters are big mechanical machines, then sometimes there can be problems. Right now we have great guys taking care of the machines and everything works as they need to work. We hope to see you again at our place!

I'm not a big bowling fan but Vanaliina Bowling Hostel is a kind of unique place. Tiina and Arvi run the place and have taught their staff well. The reception is quick, friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and well appointed, the bowling center is six lanes of relatively new Brunswick equipment and neat as a pin! There's a sauna downstairs, and good Estonian beer on tap. The place sits in the heart of Old Town, quiet and restful and a nice view of the town's famous midievel castle.

Quite expensive: >40€/night for 2 person bedroom. Small rooms ( allmost no space to unpack your stuff) and right above a bowling center, so there is a "clong" sound until 0:00. Only good thing: In the center, friendly recepcionist.

Thank you for your feedback. As we are a hostel, the rooms are simple and not worth comparing to a hotel. Therefore, the price level is one of the lowest in Haapsalu, although our location is one of the best in Haapsalu. It's true that our first floor has a bowling alley. We have advertised ourselves everywhere so that the bowling alley is on the first floor and visitors to the hostel are aware of it. We have done everything in recent years to prevent the sound from reaching the second floor. We hope you visit us again!

We were booked into a small hotel in this resort but they had messed up the booking and they found us a room in the this hostel. Fortunately it was an en suite room but had 2 end-to-end small single beds and bunk beds - obviously meant for a family, not quite what we had anticipated for the first night of our Estonian holiday!! Fairly clean but there was an all-pervading smell of cooking throughout the place. Fortunately we were offered breakfast with our friends who had a room in the original hotel. Not recommended unless you really do want hostel accommodation.

Therefore, the price level is one of the lowest in Haapsalu, although our location is one of the best in Haapsalu. We understand your 2-star review as you had booking to other hotel, not hostel. Usually the hotels prices are twice higher than hostels. We hope to see you again!

The worst place with lots of bedbugs! Small airless tripple room with tiny window and beds full of bedbugs. It was impossible to sleep there, so after we detected this terriable bugs biting us, we had to leave the hostel in the middle of the night. Avoid this place!

We are very sorry about your visit to our hostel. Such a problem is very disturbing and we understand it. This summer, it was heard from other accommodations that there was such a problem, even if you have ordered special protections. We have been preventing these problems in recent years, and this was a one time case. Sorry again for this kind of memory. We have still hope to see you again in our hostel.
