    Highly recommend for sophisticated hostel-ers. Amazing location in the center of Helsinki. Facilities and staff were great, and I was able to meet some good friends. I will stay here again for sure. It is a higher-priced hostel relative to the rest of Europe, and the price point helps create a more polite/refined crowd in my opinion. Not a party atmosphere, so if that is your scene find another, cheaper hostel.

    Great location right in the center of the city, 5 minute walk to main shops and 15 to the old market hall. Really friendly staff, shout out to the blonde woman who gave me really excellent recommendations and marked up a map for me. The hostel itself is modern and cosy, nice common area to watch tv, very quiet hostel not great to meet people. I would definitely stay again.

    The staff was wonderful regarding communication. I ended up needing an after hours check in and they sent such comprehensive instructions including photos for what could possibly be confusing.Well organized staff, breakfast offered, backpack storage for day excursions. We were, unfortunately, kind of "late in /early out" but it's a great little place!

    Central location, lovely staff and atmosphere. The beds are comfy and facilities very clean. Only thing missing is a clothes washing facility - its a long hike to the laundry, and expensive,so don’t plan to do your washing here!

    Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and it's great that there's free breakfast included! It was a little too pricey for my liking however for a weekend it was perfect as the location was very central to everything. I would have liked it if the showers were split Male and female instead of a block of cubicles but that's just a minor thing that didn't ruin much or make me feel uncomfortable.
