    Very new and clean hostel type place. Very quiet and good kitchen facilities.

    Wasn't very easy to find originally. Once used to the buses and trams it was relatively easy to get there. Toilet cubicles were really narrow. Sitting on the toilet shoulders were touching both sides and the toilet roll dispenser was in an aukwark position.

  • Older travelers

    Nothing

    Staff was unbelievably rude. Extremely low value for the money. Does not even provide towels even though cost is 80 Euro/night. Bathrooms are dirty and disgusting to the point of not wanting to use them. Internet is intermittent and frequently crashes. Hotel prevents any and all changes to your itinerary so you will be shocked after you pay. There will be no refunds nor recourse. Hotel claims to be near downtown---it isn'T. Do yourself a favor and stay anywhere else.

    Mens wc: two sections and only with light Mens Shower: No one ones where to put shoes: walk barefoot on a dirty floor, leave it before entring, right after or put on a shelf. The main problem for us was that we have not received the booked room. On arriving to the hostel we've printed the reservation so it could ease the check-in. Guy on the reception told us that there are no private rooms available. Kinda double booking. It's awful. Guy offered us beds in a dorm room for free but this won't fix this mistake. We came to rest, but had stress. No service to store bags in the day of check-in or check-out. Disappointed. Will never come back.

    Very clear hostel with the quit cheap private rooms available. Ikea-styled design is just perfect. The hostel is situated rather far from the downtown. However there are plenty cafés and restaurants with the wonderful meals for supercheap prices (the only problem that waitress staff may speak only Finnish but it is okay, we found a way to understand each other). A tram stop is quit near the hostel. By the tram you may get to all places of interesting no longer than in 10-20 minutes. Bathrooms are shared with WC but it is very clear there, hostel staff washs them rather often.

    Heater battery in our room was chili despite of it was November. No breakfast provided (kitchen is available 24/7 and you can prepare your own meal though). Doors are terribly noisy! It is impossible to sleep before 12am and after 7am. I am surprised why the maintenance staff wouldn't fix that.

    The kitchen is dirty and messy...refrigerators are stocked with smelly foods... There was some problem with the heater in our room, but the receptionist said she could do nothing to help but offering blankets! She kept saying she's new and did not know whether the heater worked in the day or not and she could not find anyone to fix it nor report the problem to any superiors. Luckily the heater worked itself some time later. Also the hall is noisy, with loud music played by the receptionist and other guests!

    The prices for staying were in compliance with the conditions offered. Cheap sleep is a nice place in a quiet city district. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, beds are comfortable, design is cool! All necessary facilities are present. This is a perfect place for short trips to Helsinki. The hostel is easily accessible from the city center.

    Reception is not 24 hours / day, which is not comfortable for travellers who need to check out early in the morning and for example get reimbursement for towels used. Fortunately, we were able to wait till 9 am when the reception is open, though we'd recommend the administration to take it into account for the sake of other travelers.

    cheap and very clean

    too much in one room so that there often someone come and out.

    good staff

    fridges overloaded and smell, dirty kitchen, hard to find free mug or glass, some people steal food from fridge even if you mark it, hard to find, not visible from the street

    It's easy to get to and to move around.The airport bus was close by but the one I waited for didnot stop though I signalled to it.Had to wait for the next one. I like the proximity to the little supermarket.

    The bed could be cleaner but the 2nd room I moved to was ok.The ceiling could have some painting or pixs to make it more comfortable to look at.

    You meet interesting people all the time, like in all hostels. Quite clean with shared kitchen.

    They should really improve the showers

    I enjoyed the cleanliness and friendly atmospere.

    I would like to have an opportunity for entertainment there, E.G. a TVset in the hall.

    Not far from the city center, near Linnanmaki. Kitchen, showers, Wi-Fi, table games. I think, i`ll stay here next time.

    My bad was like someone has alresdy slept there and I make the bed myself

    The hostel was clean and the private rooms were very spacious. Good location, shops and public transport close by. Free wi-fi and friendly, helpful staff. Bathrooms were basic, but clean. Overall a good experience and probably the best option available for backpackers in Helsinki.

    The rates for rooms vary tremendously for the same night and same room. I booked in advance and had to pay 80 (!) euro, whereas someone who arrived on the same day only had to pay 20 euro for the night. 80 euro is way too expensive for what you get, but seeing that the alternatives in Helsinki are even more expensive one's options are limited. Dorm rooms are a bit noisy during the night, especially when 18 people were sharing the same room.

  • Single
    5.0

    Good location. Lots of buses and 2 trams really close. Direct bus from the airport 615, 620.ikea style, everything is new. Safe lockers.

    It doesn't have a computer in the lobby, Lack of information. Just a few toilets often dirty. The common space hasn't natural sunlight and there are rooms whose door gives access to the main common room. We need to cross the hall to go to the toilet in pyjama with all the drunk travellers in the room. The receptionist decided to play music loud in the evening 23h/24h, which really surprised me. Light comes in the bedroom really early (summer) since it doesn't have blackouts.
