      Receptionnists very friendly, room very comfortable with clean shower and little kitchen! So nice!!!

      15 min walk from the city center but its not a problem!

    • Family with children
      10.0

      Clean and cosy rooms, a fridge, a lot of wardrobes, free internet.

    • Couple

      Great location.

      Shower water temperature swayed from cold to boiling hot. WiFi Internet connection very slow.

    • Couple

      Location, price, very spacious room.

      Bathroom had quite a bit of visible mold growth.

    • Group of friends
      7.0

      Friendly staff. Wardrobe with hangers, freezer in the room. Morning sauna for free. Great location - near Kamppi metro and bus station.

      Fair cleanliness of the room, extra bed appeared to be extra mattress on the floor, no wi-fi, poor breakfast. There's a mini-kitchen in the room, but there are no microwave, pans or kettle - so you cannot cook food. All these facilities (I mean, microwave and tableware) are on the 1st floor near reception, but it's completely non-comfortable. There's only one towel per person. No shampoo, no soap, no hairdryer. But all in all, it's good value for money. We stayed for 2 nights and had a good time.

    • Couple

      The hostel is in the center of the city.Cheap price.

      The door of a room doesn't have a knob and also it takes much time to open the door with the key. Extra towel is not free of charge.Internet access is free from the 1st floor.But the PC room is always occupied.

    • Single

      It is very comfortable to have a kitchen and a fridge in the room. Although I had terrible problems with bath. Hostel is situated only 600 metres from kamppi!!!)))

      Water in the bath didn`t go out so the flour in hole room was very wet!!!!

    • Older travelers

      Efficient, excellent internet availability, as in computers, for those without laptops, kitchenettes are a bonus. Quiet.

    • Single

      It was convenient near a metro station (Kamppi) and a tram station (No. 8).

    • Single

      The location of the hostel is excellent, near the city center of Helsinki. The staff is very nice and willing to help you when you've got any questions about anything. The room was clean.

      The only thing I can think of, is the lack of a tv. You don't really need it, but it would be nice.

    • Older travelers
      6.2

      location , hospitality,

      It was too hot. It would be good idea to provide fans for summer so the stay could be made comfortable.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      Very pleasant youth staff. Very comfortable.room. Not noisy. Convenient means of transport for Heksinki observation.

      It will be better to add soap, cleaning fluid for houseware, small kettle and (may be) small tv set.

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      the room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

      the room got no air con and the 3 days i stayed there just happened to be all very warm and hot days in helsinki. having the room window open didn't help much.

    • Couple

      Optional budget buffet breakfast. 24 hour desk.

    • Single
      9.6

      We had a twin room with a bathroom and a kitchenette, morning sauna and swimming pool were also available. Everything was very clean and in Helsinki very good value for money. We also appreciated there was an internet/computer room with enough computers to always find one free when we needed it. At the reception, they had many brochures and maps, so that a visit to the tourist information centre was not even necessary. Most importantly, all staff were very helpful. We had day tickets for the whole of Helsinki/Espoo region (12 eur, can be bought at the airport bus stop and are valid for all means of transport) and wanted to explore some of the surroundings. We would like to thank Anna at the reception who suggested we make a trip to the Nuuksio national park and spent about 20 minutes with us planning the trip and then printed out the whole return journey from a local journey planner website. We would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone planning a trip to Helsinki.
