Property Description

We are a unique, 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 non profitable 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

    Very clean hostel with a unique location on Suomenlinna island. The experience is unbeatable for a summer trip to Helsinki. It is only 12-15 minutes by boat to the market square of Helsinki, and it takes less than a minute to walk from the hostel to ferry. There is also a K Market grocery store at the end of the street. Staying here allows you to get up and explore the fortress and surroundings before all the other tourists arrive. Had a relaxing stay here, and would come back.

    Staff was great. Loved my stay! It might help to have rules posted in the dorm spaces. No turning on lights between 10pm and 6am, try to limit noise, please store luggage under beds or in lockers so other guests don't trip over them, please don't hang clothing on beds.

    Located in a beautiful old building with heigh ceilings and dimly lit corridors - this hostel was perfect for a one night stay. Quiet, clean and situated a 2 minute walk from the ferry. Suomenlinna itself is breath-taking - and I'm so glad I accidentally booked a night on the island!

    The stay was hampered by the other guests - a school group of some sort in which the children were screaming or being very loud all the time and it was very frustrating as the adults with them were often hard to find.

    Very Good

    I stayed here over a saturday, and the place was in an amazing location. a few minutes in either direction gave great views. There was an event going on that day that went well into the night and it was definitely hard to sleep because of the people coming in and out of the room. the room itself was kept open most of the day and random people would go in and out sometimes but there were lockers we could put our stuff in. that was nice. bathrooms could be worked on, but they were all right.

    Boring hostel, far away from the city centre. I wouldn't bother going back. I guess if your looking for something quiet with good facilities then it would be good.
