About 2km far from the central railway station but you can use tram 2 or 7A to get there easy. It is not a party mood and quite calm. I could see many older people unlike the other hostels. Facilities are quite nice, and the staff were very friendly especially the staff working at around midnight.

Has everything you need and boasts with loads of Finland travel info! Will definitely come back. (Plus: Foosball!)
Me and my friends globally enjoyed our stay, even if we thought that the lady at the reception could have slightly been a bit more polite and welcoming. The cleanness of bathroom and shower wasn't perfect and I hope the hostel will improve on that. The common room with TV and sofas was a great spot to meet people!
Whilst slightly out of the city centre, Stadion Hostel is pretty cool. What it lacks in being central it makes up for by staying in the actual olympic stadium. A HI hostel with all the awesomeness, lights and sockets for each bed, lockers, clean showers (tho' a lack of locks on the girls shower room, but its fine). Breakfast was kind of pricey so I didn't eat there. The staff were informative and helpful. Definitely a cool place to stay in Helsinki.
Just a terrible hostel. We payed excessively expensive for almost nothing in the other hand.
It's very good place to stay in Helsinki with cheaper cost. Especially if you are going to watch some football the hostel is going to be in same building. That was the reason we choose the stadium. Breakfast was good and trams go near the hostel so you can get easily to downtown. I can recommend it.
Interestingly set inside the Olympic Stadium, it's a fair hike (half an hour?) from the train station and city centre, but a pleasant stroll along one straight road. LOADS of helpful info about Helsinki in the foyer, this is very much designed by travellers, for travellers. The rooms, despite lots of beds, are spacious, and there are kitchen and common-room facilities. Although the adjacent Olympic tower was closed when I was there, you get a 40% discount if booked through the hostel.
Reasonably close to amenities but very far from central train station ( about a 1 hour walk).Most of the staff are courteous , but none is friendly or exceptionally helpful.They just do the required minimum.Wi fi works only in lobby and breakfast room.Relatively cheap for Helsinki.
Definitely not a social hostel--no large communal spaces to relax in. Beds were fine, bathrooms could've been a bit cleaner (trash bins were always overflowing, often smelled), and the wifi only being available in the main entrance was a minor inconvenience at worst. Breakfast was good. It was very neat to get to stay in the Olympic Stadium, and using the nearby tram, it was only about 10 minutes total to the central train station.
