    Nice place in the old town, can get everywhere quickly. No air conditioning (wasn’t necessary on the days we were there) or ability to open window (a window that actually opened would have been really nice). Bathrooms were good and clean, did not use the kitchen. Our room shared a wall with the kitchen and people were loudly cooking at 1am keeping us awake followed by them loudly eating outside our room in the courtyard. Not much sound proofing but overall good place if you remove noisy guests.

    GREAT location! The hostel is in two buildings. I had a single room with shared baths/showers in the other building, without Alur sign. There are a many spa-like showers, with massive showerheads, and toilet stalls (they're separate) and you never had to wait. My room faced a very social courtyard. It wasn't anything ear plugs could mostly drown out. Of course there were audible signs of life, but I was safe and the location can't be beat! I could walk to the ferry to Helsinki in 15-20 minutes.

    Good hostel in perfect location in central old town. Rooms fine for the price, lots of bathrooms too. Kitchen in the new half is a bit small and very busy. Nice staff who helped us out a lot

    Had a pretty good time at this hostel. It had a really good bar and outside area. It has recently been expanded so it is a very large hostel and feels like a maze sometimes. However, they have enough facilities to ensure there are no waiting time for showers and toilets. The rooms were large and beds were comfortable. Staff were really friendly and willing to help out with any queries. It is a hostel with a bit of atmosphere which seems to be hard to find East Europe. Would recommend.

    The staff is nice but that's the only positive thing I can say. 1. Poor WiFi. Impossible to make online calls anywhere. 2. I stayed for 3 days, 2 of them there was no hot water. 3. One fridge for all people that is overloaded with food and too dirty -stinking because of spoiled food 4. Too noisy at night, no possible to sleep. It's a hostel, not a party place and people are drinking and shouting in patio so everyone is not sleeping till 4 am even with closed windows 5. Very old building
