The hostel was okay. It had lockers available. Was about a 35 minute walk to the downtown area but we did it everyday and have no complaints. Room was huge with a massive table in the middle. And a good kitchen area but wifi only worked in one area of a really large building.


You can take a walk to the center. It's so close to the center. Also quite and comfortable. I liked there.

Mostly fine, though unfortunate that wifi only worked in the reception area/breakfast room. A bit out of the way from the main center of town, but it was a pleasant walk and plenty of buses/trams were around.


Excellent hostel that satisfied most requirements more than adequately. Staff very helpful, breakfast not bad for the price though the fried eggs tended to be a bit leathery towards the end of the breakfast session. Our twin room was a little on the small side but common areas were large. Well equipped kitchen. Hostel very clean and the distance from town not really a problem.


a good place just to sleep a lot of extra payment


buffet breakfast was poor for 6.50 euro


In the Russian version of the rules it's written "do not use ETANOL and drugs". In Russian spirit means etanol))

Many exciting people


The best staff ever , very friendly hostel and sleep in a stadium its not commun, i would recommend this place


sympathic staff who give usefull information and tips


It's a good hostel, with a good price for the money. The location is not that good, a bit far from the City Center, although busses pass very close by.


Friendly and helpful staff and it is a well-faciliated hostel. The major considerations are the location and little bit shabby bedrooms.


The hostel is the perfect place just to go there and sleep. I stayed at a 9-bed-dorm and it wasn't that big. The bed was really small but ok. There is a possibility to use lockers OUTSIDE of the rooms, aspect which is very important for me when travelling alone. The WCs were clean as well as the bathrooms. The atmosphere is regular I would say. The options to meet other fellows are not that easy since there are not any options for getting together (e.g. Pub crawl). Just at the small lobby...

Expensive for the bed, self lock locker just big enough for daypack. Noisy because everyone congregate in the cafeteria where wifi is available. Hostel Stadion failed miserably for someone who is looking for a quiet place to sleep for the night.. It is large hostel with lots of travelers. It is crowded and congested in the hallway and in the kitchen. With the available of wifi only in the lobby and the cafeteria. The bathroom and the kitchen clean. 23 euros for a bed in a 10 bed male room.


It is a bit far from city center, but you can walk that distance. I don't think it's a proper value, but it is located in Finland, it can't be helped. Room and bath room were not excellent, but it is enough for some night, I guess.


Wireless only at the hall. I was allocated at emergency exit and had no key at room door. The infrastructure is bad and obsolete, besides its very far from the downtown.

Its location is quite good actually - only 25 mins walk from the city centre. What I like the most is the 10% discount for HI members. But facilities were not good. For example, there was wifi only in the common area, but not the rooms. Also, the bathroom and toilets were not clean enough. Anyway, it's one of the cheapest options we have, can't really complain.


This Hostel is fine for anybody looking for just a bed. If you are looking to meet fellow travellers then this hostel is not the place to stay. The Wifi only works in the very small reception area which is rather frustrating. The staff were helpful and friendly and the location is very unique within the stadium.


The location is great, its 20 minutes in any direction to town, and attractions. There was a lack of atmosphere but this is due to a number of zones, e.g. the TV room, dinning room etc are all closed door and isolated. However, it was busy and there are a number of places to hang out and chat. The showers are bland but the pressure is excellent. If you've been to many hostels this place is no different, i'd stay again but only for a few days. The clientele is very diverse, OAP to families.


Security good, but did not have larger luggage lockers for free price. Location good: 20 min walk or 5 min tram from downtown. Staff good, helpful, but Finns are quite quiet and not 'friendly' by nature. The atmosphere is good, but lacks wifi in all areas. Decent Wifi, but does drop for 30-60 minutes, a few times each week. Excellent cleanliness, Value, Facilities. Free breakfast would dramatically increase the appeal here.
