Property Description

We are an island hostel only a 15 minute ferry journey away from Helsinki centre. We are located in Suomenlinna sea fortress and operating in an old school building. Suomenlinna is a village-like neighbourhood, popular tourist attraction and part of Unesco World Heritage. Although our location is special, the ferries run from early morning to late evening.

You are able to stay in private room or shared dormitory. All rooms include bed linen. Towels are included to private rooms, and can be rented to dormitory. All rooms have shared bathrooms. Ferry pier and grocery store are located right next door.

Guest has access to complimentary Wi-Fi, and laundry service is available with additional cost. Hostel also has common area with television and computer and shared customer kitchen. Customer kitchen is meant for light cooking and heating food. There is a fridge, microwave, cooktop, coffee maker, water boiler and cutlery, plates, kitchen supplies and pots. Unfortunately, pans are forbidden to use due to fire safety regulations.

Amazing Stay and more than I bargained for: First off, I arrived before so stored my luggage securely to go off and explore the island. Later when I returned my key was waiting and the clean laundry was on the bed. 10 bed dorm was larger and more airy than some previous 6 bed dorms I have stayed in. I also only shared with one other guest. Wash facilities fantastic and clean. Coffee was very good in the morning but was surprised there was a breakfast buffet - absolute bonus!!

Super cute and cozy and the location just can't be matched. Suomenlinna fortress is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and you just get to sleep right there on the island and walk around in the peace and quiet and take a tiny ferry ride into Helsinki itself if you want excitement. Possibly the most relaxing vacation I've ever had in a city.
