Property Description

Hostel Café Koti is located in central Rovaniemi. We offer bright and Scandinavian-style rooms and dormitories. We have 25 rooms and 2 dorms in our hostel, altogether 84 beds. Guests can choose between private rooms with a bathroom and light breakfast buffet or dormitory rooms with shared bathroom facilities. The age limit for dormitories is 18 years. There is a well equipped kitchen and relaxing area, as well as a genuine Finnish sauna at guests use. Free WiFi is featured throughout the hostel.

Also pets are welcome to stay with us, but only in some of our private rooms. Pets are not allowed in dormitory rooms. Well-behaved pets and their owners can also stay in the cafeteria. The availability of pet-friendly rooms always needs to be confirmed by the property in advance. We'll charge a small cleaning fee after a furry friend.

Rovaniemi is a relatively small town with short distances. In the city centre, everything is close to everything else and walking is the way to get around. There are three shopping centers near the hostel, all within a 400-600 meter walk. Santa Claus Village and the Arctic Circle are 10 kilometres from the hostel. The Artikum Museum & Science Center is 1 kilometre away. The ski resort and the Ounasvaara outdoor area are also relatively close by.

Vraiment très bien placé comme hôtel en plein centre, relativement propre. Il y a une cuisine équipée c’est bien pratique. A la réception le staff est présent et accueillant. Il faisait froid dans le dortoir.

Obviously I can only speak for the period of time when I was there, but if you are traveling solo or backpacking, this hostel doesn't have the best atmosphere. There were a lot of families and people staying in single rooms who clearly wanted to keep to themselves after a long day of safaris. The Cafe was nice, but also quite a formal space with many people from outside the hostel not looking to mingle. However, the hostel itself (facilities, cleanliness, safety, etc) are all great :)

We had a lovely 5 night stay at Cafe Koti in a double room. The staff were so helpful, the cafe was lovely to hang out in and there were sofa’s on the upper floors so that you could sit & read outside of the bedroom. The food was fresh & healthy. I would definitely stay here again if I’m Rovaniemi.
