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.

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.

The cleanliness of the place is really poor. Toilet sits left with the same marks on them two days later. The carpet in the corridor (at least on our floor), needs to go into the bin (it stinks) - easier to clean such a place if no carpet on the floor. Staff was very helpful, location was great. We were happy we could wash and dry our clothes and also that we could leave our suitcases at the hostel for a few more hours after check out.

We had a great stay. Rooms were better than expected, and the sauna was sweet. Also a great location. Recommend renting bikes to see the city.

Room are badly isolated, you can hear simply everyone around your room. And you need to pay to get wi-fi connection in your room.

Nice, helpful, well organised staff. Everything in the hostel is well thought out. I really liked space organization - in a double room, I had a lot of shelves to use and even a bit of privacy. Carrying (and remembering of) a lot of keys and passwords (room, kitchen, wardrobe, Internet password) was slightly troublesome. Computers with free Internet access, table and floor cloths in kitchen and bathrooms to wipe water out, more cutlery and free coffee and tea in the kitchen would be great.
