Now that I have been in "hostels" in Norway, Sweden and Finland, it seems they have a different definition of a hostel experience than what I am used to in the rest of Europe. This might be the best hostel in Finland, but it lacks atmosphere, is the most expensive hostel on my month long trip, there isn't wifi in the rooms (only cable internet) and the rooms do not have lockers, plus you have to pay extra for a security box at the front desk. The location is convenient and staff respectful.

Pretty decent hostel. The kitchen in the rook was handy and it was very clean. The wifi only works in the lobby, which is annoying when you wanna check something quickly. Also the key system is stupid. If you're in the room, you have the only key, which means when someone stumbles home at 3am, you have to let them in when they bang on the door.... dumbest system ever. Prepare to get woken up at all hours when your roommates come home.

Everything was fine with the hostel. The room was little dated but clean. I really didn't get chance to find out about facilities and atmosphere since I didn't spend much time other than sleeping and getting along with my journey.

We stayed in a double private ensure room. Very basic but sufficient for what we needed for a quick stay the night before our flight. Staff was great, good value.

I stayed at Academica with my mom. I would also stay there with friends or on my own. Our room was super clean and spacious. It is about 15 minutes walking distance to the center, and really close to different tram lines. Really nice, friendly staff! Also, get the breakfast, you cannot get such food for that price anywhere in Helsinki! The only downside is the lack of internet in the rooms but you can go downstairs for that day and night.

Staff were extremely helpful and kind. My stay here was relatively forgettable. The rooms are more like hotel rooms, and there is little in the way of atmosphere. Generally, it is a much older crowd staying at the hostel so the events advertised are geared towards sightseeing as opposed to nightlife. If not for having a great roommate to go out with, there would have been almost no opportunity to find nightlife through this hostel. Overall, a good place for a chill trip, but not for socializing.
