BEWARE! This Hostel will not give you your HI discount unless you have booked all your nights directly with them or through HI. They do need at least one sharp chopping knife in the kitchen though. I used the place as a base to travel elsewhere in Finland so stayed a total of 5 nights. Loved this Hostel.

Terrible WiFi service - slow, weak signal, constantly dropping. Irony (and sadness) is that Finland is supposed to be a top wired/internet-connected country, and the WiFi service his is so bad I would not return or recommend to anyone else unless they upgrade their system

I'm very happy with our 6 nights here. Rooms are clean and so is the toilet. Is just 20 mins walk to town It would be great if you guys can include a gym for exercising.

Reception staff, bith at check in and check out were really great. Great service at the reception. The histel was a little dirty in places, the bathrooms were poor (far too few sinks fir the number of guests), and the shower facilities also poor. You can see that it is on older property that needs improving Not worth the prices that they are charging, although the great reception staff made up for a lot.

The hostel has superb location, it's near the market place, easily to find and 50m from form tram station. The rooms are nice, just the showers offers no privacy and the staff is okay but there's no personalized service. It a really good deal for this price as you also share your room just wuth one person.

It is a great location, easy to walk from the central station, it takes around 20 minutes. Nice area, easy to go around the center by walking, or the tram is just next door. It's not a really personalized service but it is great because you share your room with only one person for a price where you normally have to share with 6 or 8 people!

Showers offer little privacy, no real doors. Air was too dry and the room was too hot.

Clean, comfortable, and well equipped. Overall a good hostel without being great. Definitely recommended if visiting Helsinki as it offers good value for money compared to others.

I think if you are solely looking for an affordable/safe/clean place to sleep then this is a good choice- if you are a young solo traveler hoping to meet people where you are staying, I would advise against it just because there aren't many opportunities for that. The price for the bed I think is great but I would recommend keeping your own food on hand because the restaurant downstairs charges pretty normal prices, not cheap meals like are sometimes available at hostels.

This hostel is more like a hotel in size and atmosphere.

I very much enjoyed my stay here. It was within walking distance of the city centre and it was clean and secure. I did not like the Kitchen, the cooking devices did not look secure at all and it was not well equipped (even less than one would expect from a hostel). I did'nt find this a problem however, as I like to eat out while on vacation. I really liked the restaurant within the hostel, which offered great food for reasonable prices!

I had a pleasant stay here. It was very easy to get there, where the tram stop is almost right outside of the hostel. Security wise, they've got huge lockers for you in your own room. They use key cards which open your own door and the kitchen on your floor. Not the greatest atmosphere but I assume it's because not many people are around while it's still cold. There are also two shared toilet/shower rooms on each floor - female and male. They weren't amazing, but okay. Staff were pretty helpful.

Liked the sauna -- wish there was a complimentary time period in the evening when the sauna would be free. The sauna had a soothing atmosphere but there's no clock and no thermometer and the sauna doesn't feel as hot as you would think it should. Fridge with locks is a plus but it's not so convenient that the kitchen is very bare bones -- and they lock it at 11pm so you can't get in if you need to between late to early morning hours. If you get on the correct direction the tram 4 goes here.
