No real atmosphere, close to east terminal for the ferries, around a 10 minute walk to get to Senate Square or use the trams, no free WiFi, clean bathrooms, probably the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept on. Staff were friendly and helpful but this doesn't feel like a great hostel to meet people in the ridiculously expensive city of Helsinki.
hostel was very average but the staff was nice. the sauna was the best thing in the hostel
I think it will be better if you have more cookware
+ Staff was very willing to help with questions and requests. The location is a convenient walk to the center. - The 2nd floor girl's bathroom had 1 shower and 1 toilet that didn't work for the entire 5 nights that I was there. All female 2-person rooms are right above the front door. It's an automatic door that makes a creaking noise, amplified by the floor. It kept me awake nights and woke me up in the mornings. Walls are very thin, the place is loud.
Paid for a hostel and got a hotel instead, really nice.It's located just 300 meters from viking lines ferry terminal, it was extremely convenient as the weather in Helsink, as usual, wasn't the best. If you are arriving there by ferry don't think twice. I get there before check in time and they already had a room for me. The room was spacious with a huge locker. Maybe my only complain is that the showers weren't enclosed, so there's not to much privacy. But that's Finland typical I think.
Private rooms were good, facilities were average. Beds and pillows were rock hard and had to pay for wifi which were negatives. Easy location to get around from though
this is my experience: buffet breackfast in the mornig lasts only until 10.30, I started at 9.30 than at 10.30 the waiter told me to go away, as he had to close the restuarant, Than at 10.35 some other costumers came, the waiter repeated that he was closing and that it was not possible to have anythjng to drink/eat anymore, but when he noticed that the costumers had his same nationality, he started chatting with them and serving them food and drinks letting them sitting at the tables.
fitlhy kitchen: not cleaned during the whole week we stayed + 2 people slept on the sofa there for a night corridor's floor not cleaned for one week some of the staff could have been friendlier internet connection 5 euros for fast connection!!!! priceles!! nonsense when you stay at a youth hostel and not want to spend too much lack of privacy in the bathrooms

I just miss a free internet, if in the airport we can have it for free, why not in the hostel? But about everything else it was great. I recommend.
Its kind of far from downtown, although its a walkable distance or either you can take the tram. In general it was quite good, considering the price versus what you get, although still things can be better. Beds are not the best and personally really hate when the showers dont have doors or curtains that cover.
Eurohostel is located very nicely almost in the center of Helsinki. It is clean and the staff was nice and very helpful. It's cheap and because of that not extremely fancy: bathrooms are small as well as rooms. Internet costs 2 euro for 24 hours. Breakfast was 8,50 euro. But if you will walk the whole day in the city and stay just for a short time, this place is highly to be recommended
excelent location, very clean, good staff, nice decorations the showers were not good enough the temperature changed from cold to hot, and wasn t confortable, a nice place to stay
It is something more than hotel, but morning sauna is amazing thing which you must do during your stay! Staff very kind :)
Staff were excellent an very helpful! However, this hostel is a little out of the centre with nothing around it. The "restaurant" is expensive, the showers are the worst design in any hostel I have ever seen. If you use the toilets for more than about a minute the lights turn off yet the sensors are outside the cubicles. 2 bed dorm is kind of weird, it's not a dorm it's just a room with twin beds. Quite possibly the most unsocialable hostel in Europe. But if you want a quite place to sleep👍
nice hostel, clean, good location, but the staff wasn't that friendly. but there is a sauna also in the hostel and for the price it's good!
The quality of food could be better, especially fresh bread- it was always hard and stale. Everything else was THE BEST!
The facilities were quite good, and the rooms were spacious and very clean. Regarding the staff, not so nice and kind as you would expect in a hostel. Wifi poor. Overall, good place to stay and 15' walk to downtown.
Felt very ultitarian. Not a social atmosphere at all. Charge extra for wifi and breakfast. Wifi didn't work in room so we got a refund.
Location was the best part about this hostel- only a few minutes walk to the harbour and market. Paid more for a single room which was very average- not much more to stay in a hotel room. Did not think bathroom/shower areas were very clean and there was a strong smell of damp in the shower room.
