Stayed for 2 nights in a twin room of C building on the 4th floor. The room is basic, like really simple, with no touch of style or coziness or whatever. The room has two beds, lots of closets, a table with two chairs, tiny kitchen and a pretty big refrigerator. It may be good when you plan to live...

Nice position in central Helsinki. Unfortunately rooms are spacious but not clean at all! No soap or shampoo (room and personal hygiene are not warranted!). One miserable towel for each guest. Not for people with alergies as dust is everywere in the hostel!

Hi! Thank you for your honest feedback and suggestions! Soap and shampoo is unfortunately not provided at the moment but we sell them at the hostel reception. The closest shop is also just on the other side of the street. As we we have gotten suggestions on including soap in the hostel prices, we are moving towards that for the...

I stayed 2 nights for Helsinki Marathon. Really couldn't fault this hostel given room rate. The room was clean, with comfortable bed and good shower. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was good value. Location is central for all of Helsinki - I could walk/tram everywhere. One of the best features is the sauna (included in room price) - standard for Helsinki...

We stayed here 2 nights. We were 3 and had a 4 people room. It pretty much looked like a small apartment, with kitchen, hall, and a dorm. Very good quality/price ratio for Helsinki. It's a big hostel, and to complain, the corridors smelled tobacco smoke.

This student dorm operates as hostel during summer. Rooms are clean, staff is very friendly, there is a kitchen that u can use, and it looked very safe. The problem is that the hostel is very big, so maybe not suitable for solo travellers, but it is good for families and groups. But be aware that is quite expensive, but...

Stayed in C building for 4 nights, actually nothing to complain about - nice location (ca.7 min to metro station and ca.10 min to the beach), clean rooms with very simple furniture, was rather loud due to construction works, but they started not very early and in the evening was quiet. The only issue is I would have expect the...

A Very price-worthy hostel in a good location of Helsinki. Very nice and helpful service! A walk distance to the city center and the most important attractions. 50 m distance to a small supermarket. Great possibility to meet people if you want 😊
