Eurohostel2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Please be aware that this is a HoStel, so there is absolutely minimum comfort offered in the rooms. Furniture is old. Only a small part of the windows open. Curtains block just enough sunlight for good sleep (in the summer this is important). Room artificial lighting is poor. Kitchen is so-so, furniture and devices are in poor shape, too few cuttlery but it does the stuff. Availabity of fridge compartment and ironing is a plus (for a deposit). The shared bathrooms are clean and work well. Staff are friendly and helpful. Internet is 5 Euros per day, but Helsinki offers free WLAN on the main squares throughout the city. Also, if you are an EU citizen, bringing your cell phone and activiating roaming for internet could be cheaper than that. It is ~10 minutes walk from the main square and harbor, some ferries (Viking Line, Suomenlinna ferry) stop very close to the hostel though. Grocery store is ~5mins of walking. Overall, this is a good place for youngsters heading out at night to parties. If you are a regular tourist and you purchase a Helsinki Card witch offers free transportation, you can get much better value for money in other hotels a little farther away from the city centre.
Economically friendly and 5 minutes walk to the downtown makes eurohostel for the tight-budget travelers.
