This is not a 5* SAS Radisson or The Dorchester Hotel - no, this is a hostel. The rooms are small, consisting of a bed, a desk, a window, and a light. There are male & female toilet and bathroom facilities at opposite ends of each floor, as well as kitchen & laundry facilities. It is very cheap but is actually really good for the money - there's not much to do here, but it is a hostel! You check in, drop your bags, go out exploring the city, come back, sleep, shower, and go out again. What more do you want for the price?
The staff are all multilingual, extremely friendly, & are able to help with any queries you might have. It's in a really good location - 5 minutes walk from the Viking Ferry Terminal, 10 minutes walk to the Uspenski (Russian Orthodox) Cathedral, and a further 5 minutes walk into the centre of Helsinki. Alternatively, the #4 tram stops right behind the hostel offering a quick and easy way to get to/from the city (there are stops 2 minutes' walk from both the train station & the main shopping centre) as well as one right outside Helsinki Cathedral.
The single bed was basic but comfortable enough to get a good night's sleep on & overall, I was very impressed with what I got for the money. I will definitely be staying here again next time I visit Helsinki!
