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.
I was in Helsinki for 3 nights, but stayed here for 1 night, just for the rare-ness of staying in the famous 1950's Olympic Stadium. It was OK, the corridors are claustriphobic, hostel is a strange design and a weird atmosphere. There are friendlier and better equipped hostels in Helsinki city centre. This is alright for 1 night, 2 at a push.
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.
Not in the best location. Had to walk 20minutes from the train station. No wifi in the room.
