Friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are pretty cheap, no handtowel, no soap and the shower is somehow all over the bathroom, making everything wet when you use it. Would not recommend to friend. Location is fine.

My studio was not in the main building,and absolutely no facilities in my building, so you have no social life! There was a kitchen, but empty, no utensils so impossible to use, no boiler even to make tea or coffee.Not a piece of soap in the bathroom, no TV, no internet.For 70 euros per person per night without breakfast, it is very bad value!

We was running the Helsinki Half Marathon and the hostel was close to the city centre where the start and finish was. We booked a twin bedroom En Suite which also had a small kitchen and dining area. We didn't need to used the kitchen as we had arrange to eat out every day with friends. The bathroom was really good. The Beds was comfortable and the room was clean. The location was a fast 10 minute walk in to the city centre via the cycle track behind the hostel. The staff was very friendly.

Realised the reason it's called summer hostel is its student accommodation the rest of the time. Common area and things are not in the same block as where you stay. No bunk beds just single beds very close to each other. Absolutely fine for one night or if your not bothered about meeting anyone. There is a small kitchen in the room but think you have to go and get the equipment from reception. Staff are very kind and helpful.

Hostel did not have a welcoming feel. The bedroom was not very clean and had a horrid and pungent smell. The hostel is in many building spread around a city block, so it can be difficult to find your building (their map wasn't very helpful). The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. I feel bad about leaving such a low review, but it is accurate. The awesome customer service and friendliness does not make up of the repulsiveness of the hostel.

Below average hostel with poor wi-fi and lack of amenities. Certainly okay for a budget stay but expected a little more from such a "highly-reviewed" Finnish hostel. Did not live up to standards of utility.
