No internet, if you want to use, you have to pay 2 Euro for one device. In the bathroom, there is no shampoo and shower cream,a little inconvenient.

Paying for wi-fi and kitchens locked at night were a little disappointing. In a budget class room all the noises from next-door rooms were heard. Overall a very good hostel, well-equipped.

No free wifi.

Large hostel, very clean and tidy with friendly staff. Most of the rooms seemed to be twin-bed, as a result there wasn't much atmosphere and aside from the sauna there weren't many extras included (like WiFi). But a nice place to stay and close to the centre of town.

This hostel is about 15min walk from the center of Helsinki which is a very big plus, but I would prefer a free WiFi instead of paying 2€ for one device. Also during our stay in this hostel there was no hot water in one of the shower cabins, and the stuff members knew about this problem, but didn't warn us about it. Also the prices in their cafe leave much to be desired. Very expensive.

Everything was great, especially the sauna :) The place is well cleaned and nice. There were 2 things that did bother me: The receptionist on the first day who seemed to ignore me and continueu with her work after greeting me even though I kindly asked her a question, she just ignored it. In the morning I decided to go for a breakfast, which was not worth its money, and the waiter was also ignorant.

the purity. order. special thanks for an early settlement. (we arrived in Helsinki early in the morning). unfortunately, the night was a bit difficult, due to excessive activity of the neighbors. overall, a decent combination of price and quality. thank you.

Like anywhere one wonders what sort of place they will encounter next. Far exceeded my expectations in all aspects of the trip. If you are taking Viking lines to Estonia, this is the most convenient location. Staff friendly, informative and professional. Thank you.

I've used this hostel 4 times now - always very good but this time the in-house restaurant really surpassed itself. Pizzas everywhere, which I don't personally enjoy, but the meals on the restaurant menu were first class. They were always good but they've upped their game and meals are very, very tasty. Restaurant, staff, evenings and breakfast time, were very friendly and helpful. Also enjoyed the additional (very!) widescreen TV and football coverage, possible to watch while eating ;-).

it's surprisingly sad that some hostels like this still sell Wifi instead of sharing it for free.

This hostel is basic but absolutely fine. Plenty of space in the room and nice big lockers. My only complaint was having to pay extra for wifi.

A bit of a walk to the centre. Does not really feel like a hostel, more a hotel but a nice place to stay nevertheless.

The hostel is nice and clean, good location and prices. I only wish the walls would be more soundproof... Not that it was that noisy during the night (I spent 2 nights, both on workdays), but you could here everything from the rooms around, so I don't want to imagine having some party neighbours.. and free wifi would have been nice..

everything is good about this hostel but remember this is a hotel more than a hostel, social atmosphere is zero. facilities are excellent but if ur looking to meet people while travelling, probably look somewhere else

The connectivity of wifi in rooms was very poor, which is bad if it would be free, but it's terrible if you have even to pay for it. The walls were pretty crappy too, you could hear people from other rooms like they were in yours. The rest of the facilities were awesome: sauna, towels, nice toilets and showers.

Farly clean and comfortable for the price. Good bathrooms. Well located, staff is nice. The kitchen is disgusting. There is no free internet, which is kinda of super bizarre this days. Walls are thin, and there is a lot of families, so you have all this toddlers (sometimes some big 8 years old guys) hanging around in female bathrooms with their moms, which is not very hostel atmosphere.
