“Great hostel”
Reviewed 12 December 2011

I stayed here with two friends in March 2011. It was the first time that I'd stayed in a hostel and this place was great. The staff were super friendly and the location was perfect. we had a private room with three seperate beds and a sink. The common bathrooms were clean and the building itself was very nice. Bear in mind that you will need to carry your luggage up a few flights of stairs wbut it's not difficult for thise with moderate fitness. Helsinki itself is a beautiful city. Make sure you day a day trip to Tallin in Estonia.

I come to this hostel from Turku whenever i have meetings and/or conferences in Helsinki (i work for libraries so i come to the capital quite a lot). The hostel really is a little bit of a gem in downtown Helsinki, with as
awesome staff and a really comfy and casual atmosphere and some people to have a chat with. You know, a real hostel. I've been here only during the weekdays.

It feels funny to stay at hostels in your own city (i'm from here, In Turku only temporarily), but it's such a great idea and gives you perspective.

I really liked this hostel and its got to be one of my favourites!.

Beds were really comfortable and clean, internet is excellent, location is also excellent.
Im 33 and those things are at the top of my list of requirements!.

The staff were also extremely friendly and were always there to help.

Room Tip: There is no tv in the common room but there are in some of the bedrooms.... if you are desperate for...

I stayed in this hostel for two nights in a female dorm. The location can't be beat. It's right in the middle of the design district -- surrounded by tons of cafes, restaurants and shops, and a ten minute walk to the train station. In fact, most of the sites I wanted to visit were within walking distance -- but the hostel is also well served by public transportation (for those with tired feet). Additionally, the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitely stay here again.

I spent two nights here while traveling through Finland. I thought that the hostel was in a great location -- very close to tram lines as well as the central railway station, which proved very useful for further travels throughout Finland. I'm an avid walker, and I thought that most of the sights I was interested in seeing were very walkable from the hostel's location.

For a hostel, this wasn't too shabby. There was internet, which worked pretty well. The staff was incredibly friendly and provided me with a lot of information on Helsinki. They also provided me with a hair dryer both nights, which was great.

Everything seemed clean. There were more than enough bathrooms and showers. I never had to wait to use the facilities. There also was a common room with a fridge, a tea kettle, and some complimentary tea bags. Given that it was so chilly and snowy, I was more than happy to drink tea after walking!

I would definitely stay here again. Though I'm staying with friends in Helsinki this July, I still recommend this hostel to people who go to Helsinki.

Room Tip: E-mail ahead of time to see what's available.

This place is great. We -me and my wife- stayed for two days in double room. The location is good enough to walk to the center of town and the staff is nice. Cafes, bars and grocery stores are near the hostel.
Room is clean and comfortable. We have experienced fairly enough 5 stars hotels and compare to those hotels, this hostel's bed is really comfort.
And i've heard joke that "helsinki's hotel is more expensive than manhattan" and i believe that could be true in some ways. In thar matter, the price of this hostel is good.
P.s. One of staffs, a girl who has bracelet in her mouth, has great smile.
