It's a very quiet hostel so don't go there for the party atmosphere. Great central location, nice kitchen and good bathrooms. Staff weren't that informative about the best places to go though...

The only people you will meet at this hostel is your roommates. Don't stay here if you're wanting to meet tons of people to party with. It's a nice place though. The staff is friendly and helpful.


Brilliant Nothing missing Nothing else to say I enjoyed the time there : )

This is an average hostel. First thing I will say is that there is absolutely no atmosphere here - the place felt dead despite my room being full - nobody was talking for some reason and there was absolutely nothing going on. The decor was very stale. Also although the water was apparently safe to drink, it tasted terrible. No free tea or coffee was offered and considering this hostel is relatively expensive I felt ripped off.


It's a bed, really just a place to stay. The one key deal for every room is a bit annoying. Great location and the staff I guess helpful. No lift so if you have a huge luggage, pack light. WiFi is OK, weak when you're in the end room. Some sort of sewer smell in the bathrooms.


Very good hostel: good location, greta facilities, everything is clean, and the staff is super friendly & helpful!


Nice atmosphere in this old fashionned appartment. Very nice staff.

Nice cosy place to stay, no problems with any facilities or staff. Secure lockers are in your room and they have maps to help you get around the city. Would recommend staying here to anyone visiting Helsinki!


good location in the design district with easy access to the waterfront and the bus/train station. probably the tiniest sinks in the world. no individual locks as others have mentioned before so the hostel security is suboptimal. kitchen seems well-equipped. a few more lights in the rooms would be nice instead of a single bulb for a 6 person room.


The hostel is fine, a little old and outdated but okay. Other then the kitchen there isn't really a good place to hang out which makes the rooms a bit noisy if you want a good sleep.


staff, location good!! and very clean!!


The location was great, 10-30 minutes walking distance to everything in Helsinki. The showers looked clean, but smelled pretty bad. And it would be nice if guests could have their own keys.


A cheap place in the middle of Helsinki.


Very friendly and helpful staff. The bed is a little bit squeaky. And the 2 storey high stairs will definitely give you some work out if you have heavy luggage. Other than that everything is great.


Clean rooms, bathrooms, kitchen. All the staff were really nice and helpful. Close to the train station, harbour, city center. I would suggest this hostel for sure !


Absolutely loved this place! (Despite it being on the expensive side, yet it falls in line with the costly nature of Helsinki itself). Very friendly staff, beautiful kitchen area and clean comfy bedrooms. Met some really great people from all over the world, Saturday nights in Helsinki are awesome! OH AND THE WIFI IS GREAT. Visit Hostel Errotajanpuisto! 😀


A little bit expensive for what you get. The only thing I didn´t like is that there wasn´t enough security in the room. They only had one key for a room for 8 people and we had to share it.


Stayed for 1 night in a mixed dorm, all went ok, but facilities were very modest. I would recommend this for a shorter stay, the price was ok, but not cheapest of all choises. Location is great if you move around on foot and like to stay in city centre.

The location is very good, staff were friendly, everything is clean and quite new. I really don't see any problem in one key per room. Of course the price is much higher than cost for equal hostels in most places of Europe, but that's Helsinki with no choice of really cheap hostels. Next time will stay there again.


Absolutely lovely and cosy small hostel minutes walk from Helsinki's central station. The kitchen is large, bit only has one decently sized pot and lacks knives and a lot of basic free food things, nothing major, but annoying having to wait for a pot. the check in staff was great, but when we were leaving we were clearly flustered and asking for directions to catch our ferry that was leaving very soon (explained this) and the staff member was sort of dismissive and didn't seem to care.
