It was quite nice to get in contact with the different hostel guests. But the kitchen which is used by every guests is most of the time really dirty and does not invite somebody to cook something there.

My mum and I have stayed in the 18-people mixed dorm for two nights there. Generally it is a peasant stay but there are a few problem. We feel quite unsafe for the showering area because the main door of the showering room can't be locked while inside there are just curtails separating each showering area. Some tenants are not cleaning the kitchen utensils after usage so I have seen tons of unwashed dished every morning before the hostel staff cleaned them up.

I felt like in Ikea store there, like if someone puted me in this huge shop to let me try how´s living in such a place with this furniture. Also arrival was funny. The receptionist couldn´t find my reservation, she had to make a new. The price was much more higher than it should be.Then I discover my bed dirty, it was used already and nobody cleaned it. I had to manage new blankets. Next day with new receptionist we founded my original reservation. I had to ask to give me some money back.

we do not expect more since it is really cheap in a big city like helsinki. So the situation here fits the price and it is good that we could use the kitchen freely.

+nice and clean, good price, we had a private room with double bed +good atmosphere, good kitchen etc. -toilets & showers are in the same room -> the bathroom floor is always soaking wet -blankets were really thin, bed was a bit hard But I think a pretty good value all in all. :) You get what you pay for.

Location is ok, not in the centre but easily reachable in 15 min by tram or bus. Beds are warm and comfortable and lockers are provided. On the downside, the common room is not very cozy and staff is not particularly friendly. Also, the number of toilets/showers does not seem to be enough for the ammount of people staying at the hostel.

I traveled with a friend and we have a good experience. The social area is confortable and allows you to meet new people. The rooms are clean and warm. The only issue is that the kitchen isn't clean enough.

Helsinki does not have cheap hostels, so you will have to choose between a good and overpriced or this cheap and not good hostel, it is far away from the city center, there is no hostel ambient, if you arrive earlier than 2pm they don't store your luggage, so if you want to Go to the city you will have to leave your things there without protection.

It is a very nice hostel to stay with very good wifi connection, a large common room. It is close to city center and easily reachable by bus and tram

The location is not in the centre, but still not bad: the tram stop is right there and metro 7 min. walk. It was very clean and the beds were separated from each other so you dont feel like sleeping in an 18-person dorm at all! What I liked most, were lockers, that you open/close with your key. What was really annoying: there were some older guys, who seemed to be drunk 24h a day, some of them sleeping on the couch in common room. Thats why I didnt use the common room at all and didnt socialise.

Well the hostel is so far from the Helsink's Downtown, the kitchen is always durty and the staff didn't do nothing to make its better.So for me the really good things are the lockers and the internet locations.

Great hostel and well priced. I enjoyed the walk into the city about 30min but was a nice stroll. 10 min to the metro station. Good kitchen and and security. Staff are very friendly and most helpful

Security could be better early in the morning. When I left, some guy quickly entered the hostel when I opened the door. He looked homeless.

I just stayed there one night and I was very pleased. Dorms are quiet even if Common rooms were full (that actually juste me want to come back with friends) and the hostel is globally brand new whatever the other comments say ;)

One inconvenience with hostels in Finland (including this one) is the type of visitors who stay there. Most of them, unfriendly and aggressive. I paid for a place in 10 bed mixed dorm assuming that beds could be better than those with the cheapest price (18 to 26 beds) but I had to realize that extra money per night was just for sharing dorm with less people, from which an English drunk flatulent guest made a lot of noise when got into the dorm around 3 or 4 am so it didn't worth the price paid.

There are so few budget hostels in Helsinki that this is basically the only choice in its price range. So actually it could have be alot worse and people would still come here. There is a huge number of guests -- including many long-term renters -- who have to share small amount of facilities. Yet strangely the hostel doesn't feel "too" crowded... or maybe you just get used to it. If you get a bed located near the door of your room, you might have difficulty getting to sleep.

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I ACTUALLY ENJOY A HOSTEL THAT IS NOT IN THE CITY CENTRE AND CHEEP SLEEP HELSINKI IS ONE OF THEM! LARGE AND SPACIOUS! HOT WATER ALL DAY! CLEANED DAILY! GOOD WI-FI! SAFE & SECURE! GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY! THERE WAS ONLY ONE STAFF WHO WAS NICE AND HELPFUL-THE GIRL WHO SERVICED ME WHEN I FIRST CHECKED-IN; THE OTHERS WERE SNOBBISH AND JUST DOING THEIR JOBS. THERE IS A WOMAN WHO HAS MENTAL ISSUES WHO TERRORIZES THE FEMALE DORMS BEING A NUISANCE AND THE STAFF DOES NOT EVICT HER.

The hotel staff were not very helpful or friendly. The beds were great, very clean but the staff did not give me great information and I had to coax any and all information from them.

This was a very nicely organized hostel. I received a free locker that easily held my carry on and my bag. This allowed me to relax and not worry about theft. The bathrooms, showers and bedrooms were all very clean. There is a nice common room, where people seemed to hang out - I arrived late myself and went straight to bed.
