The location is nice and the hostel itself is clean. However the staff isn't very friendly, they just don't talk. As we arrived the person at the reception didn't even give us a smile. We got the keys and that was it. It was the same for the days we stayed. No recommendations (about where to go, which train to take), no "have a nice day", no explanation about breakfast or the sauna... nothing. The "common room" was very dirty.

The hostel was a bit far from the city but there was a tram stop next to it which was fantastic! The staff was very nice, and the hostel was very clean and well kept. However the two bedroom dorms didn't really permit you to meet a whole bunch of travelers, and the kitchen/common rooms were closed off by a door. Also, the kitchen on the 2nd floor was never really clean. Other than that all was good and I would stay again in the future.

Average place. Institutional feel to the rooms. Poor common area to relax in. Staff a mixed bag, some very helpful, others(1 in particular) didn't seem to want to be there. Not much that made me think I'll come back here. This place would be fine if you intend on leaving early morning and only returning to put your head down for the night. Location s good, not central though. 10/15 minute walk or use the tram

The hostel is kind of expensive but very worth it especially because of the sauna!

Very good hostel. A bit out of the way, but the tram to the centre, stops right outside the hostel. Good facilities and even has a sauna on the top floor. Only free in the morning though. Breakfast is very expensive so we didn't eat there.

The hostel is located not so far from the city centre (15minutes by walk). Staff there are very friendly and always help me with pleasure. However, the bathroom and shower room are kinda small. And do not forget to bring own Soap and Shampoo. In case you forget, the hostel sells only soap 'not shampoo' so you'd better prepared. Anyway, I enjoy my stay there and would recommend everyone to go there :-)

Super clean, quiet, and secure. It feels like uni dorm rooms, two people per room and common kitchen and washrooms on each floor. Not a lot of places for interaction with other guests (other than the cafeteria downstairs). Is about 30 minute walk from train station --- great location if you want to be on the water but not if you want to be near the city centre. Staff were helpful and pleasant. Lacks the traveller ambiance that most hostels have; more like a hotel at hostel prices.

Nice stay overall. The sixth floor kitchen didn't meet the standards (lack of oven + supplies). Staff very prompt communicating about a lost item. Sauna was very nice.

Overall experience is good, location is not near to the central but tram station is right behind of the hostel.

The staff isn't very friendly. My bedroom has a window. Top. The toilets arent very clean, but the shower are ok. For this very cheap Price the Service is ok.

Really strange hostel - seemed more like a cheap hotel than a hostel. No atmosphere whatsoever. Fine for a few nights as it is the cheapest option in Helsinki. Better doors in the showers would be good to ensure some privacy!

I found it a nice place to stay, but not so good for meeting people, and I didn't mind the walk through the city, though I imagine it could be bit of a pain in rubbish weather. Hostel was very clean though and quiet and had heaps of secure storage in the room which was great 😊. Would stay here again

A little bit unpersonal. Because of the different kitchens you can't really meet other travelers. Felt a bit lonely there. If there was a common room open all night it would have been better
