Property Description

We are a cosy, historical hostel in an old school building on the islands of Suomenlinna sea fortress -a Unesco world heritage site. Suomenlinna is a village-like neighborhood of 850 inhabitants next to Helsinki's downtown. If you are looking for a more peaceful and idyllic environment to stay, but still within easy reach from the city center, Hostel Suomenlinna and Suomenlinna islands are an excellent choice for you!

Hostel Suomenlinna is a friendly, laid back hostel with a charming archipelago nature around it. We have welcomed travellers from all around the world as a hostel, a youth camp center and a meeting point for groups since 2002. Our Hostel is run by the Finnish Camp School Association.

Hostel Suomenlinna resides in a restored school building built for Russian children in 1908. After Finland became independent in 1917, the building housed Finnish defence forces. After this, the house was used as a school house for a second time, but in 1960 the students and teachers moved to a new building and the defence forces worked in the building once again. The building returned to serving educational purposes in 2002

Hostel has all together eight rooms and 40 beds on two floors. Rooms are for 1-10 people.
There are four dorm types available (downstairs, 4 rooms) - 6 beds(male dorm),7 beds(mixed), 8 beds(female dorm) and 10 beds(mixed).

Dorm rooms come with solid bunk beds and a locker per bed. Rooms are spacious with high ceilings (4 m). Single, twin and triple rooms come with single beds and have charming attic style ambiance. Toilets and showers (24 h hot water) are in the corridor on both floors.
Bed linen and towel are provided in private rooms. Reading lights in all rooms. Heating system in all rooms for the winter time and double windows. No air-conditioning.
