    Very Good

    This hostel was fine. Helsinki is expensive, so this hostel was expensive. I felt like it cost way more than it was worth. Location is good. Close to transit and sights. The rooms were nice and there was a ‘serve yourself’ breakfast. My only real complaint would be the cost.

    This hostel is clean and well located, but there is not much of an atmosphere. It was also very expensive for the value of the place. There were no social activities, you have to make your bed, and there is no staff available after 8 pm, which can be very inconvenient. For example, the Netflix which they had advertised as being available was signed out and there was no one there to help us. I think this has the potential to be a great hostel but there should be staff 24/7 and more social act..

    Unimpressed. I really expected more. It’s a nice hostel, with a free (very basic) breakfast and great common room, but at near €50 per night, it’s terrible value for money for a place where the beds rock when anyone moves, the toilets are tiny enough to be hard to use and some seats broken, power leads run across your bed, you have to rent towels, the sheets and pillowcases are strange sizes and you have to make and strip your own bed. Nice, but not special. And expensive. I wouldn’t stay again
