A friend and I booked this place without too many expectations as we found an offer on a website and just went for it (also we're brave/idiots who don't always read reviews before we go). Staying here was great and exceeded our expectations especially considering other places that we had stayed and the fact that Helsinki can be very very pricey. We stayed for a total of 3 nights in a private room. Rooms are clean and surprisingly spacious. Although noise may be an issue whilst we were there it was quite calm and we were there for the weekend. The free sauna in the morning is an added bonus and I highly recommend going. WiFi is speedy and decent. The receptionists were all very good with inquiries and happy to help. Shared areas were also good - I found the bathroom was clean and well maintained (I even saw someone oil the hinge when they saw the that door squeaked a little). The laundry is very cheap to use as it only costs 2 euro to use both the washing machine and dryer. The kitchen doesn't have an oven but it does have some stove tops and a microwave as well as a kettle. You can also rent a lockable space in the fridge for 10 euro I think. Maybe the only downside is that the times to visit the kitchen and laundry are limited to day hours but that also helps keep noise down. The showers can also be a bit weird with their water temperatures but for the price I really can't complain. I would definitely stay here again.

Room was clean, check in was smooth, friendly staff. All their rooms are with common bathroom. We were lucky that our room was close to both bathroom and kitchen. Its a shame that they close the kitchen at 11pm, so you cant prepare/warmup food after that. However there is big table in the room which is a plus. The walls are pretty thin and can be easily heard from the adjacent room which is not nice. The bathroom was clean, however there was a real bad/stinky smell in there all the time, they should do something about that. The bed was cozy with mobile charging point beside the bed. WiFi was fast enough to stream movies, however you have to renew password every 24 hrs which is a hassle. Bed linen and towels were clean however you have to make your own bed even the first time when you are given the keys for the room. Kitchen is equipped with microwave, kettle etc. so that is nice. Location is a bit off city center, atleast 15 mins walk, however there is a supermarket Alepa nearby within 5/7 mins walking distance. Also there is a tram stop just beside the hotel and if you buy regional ticket then you can use it in the train as well within 80 mins of your commencing the tram journey and ride to Airport in 5.50 euro!!

I stayed here with my husband in May. We had a very positive experience. We arrived late, 1:30am, and had an easy check in with friendly staff. We found the room spotless as were the shared bathrooms even at that time. My only complaint is that there is open access to both the female and male bathrooms and then no lock on the shower door to counteract that. Breakfast was excellent, good value for General prices in Helsinki.

I I stayed here for 3 nights. Honestly this is the first time I stayed in an hostel, even though it is a private room.  Was given a room pretty near the shared bathroom/toilet which I was quite glad given that I have hurt my feet and walked with a limp.  The room was pretty basic but the free wifi (log-in only for 2 devices at one time) was strong. The bedsheet proqvided is quite rough and a bath towel was also provided. No other in-room necessities are been provided but luckily for me, I had a travelling kettle with me. I also have an extension cord with me which helped a lot as there are only 2 side by side electrical power socket just next to to the bed. For the shared facilities, the female shower room and toilet were quite clean.  But the common area where one can cook or watch TV smelled quite bad even and there were unwashed utensils been left in the sink.  To use the freezer, will need to get a key from the Front Desk with €10 deposit.  The location is quite convenient - just take tram 4 to Vyokatu, the stop is just behind the hostel and the Alepa Supermarket for grocery is just 10 mins walk or 2 tram stop away (Merisotilaantori, the last stop of tram 4).   As my departure flight was very early and with my foot injury, I got the front desk to get me a shared airport transfer for €29. Overall the hostel is pretty clean but guess I still prefer a room with ensuite bathroom or even one with a sink in it as I find it quite inconvenient to get water without a sink in the room.

convenient and affordable. I stayed there for four nights and it was quiet .The breakfast was good . I will most likely stay there next time,too. You can take the tram and go to the center of the city in just a few minutes

I really enjoyed my stay at the Eurohostel. The free wifi was strong, the rooms were always a good temperature and the beds were comfortable. The huge lockable cupboards for each person were also great, meaning anything could be stored and hung up too. The location is great too, 2 tram lines stop right outside and take about 10 minutes to the city centre/main train station, but you can also walk in about 20 minutes. The ferry terminal for Viking Line is right outside too, less than 5 minutes away. The restaurant on site is good and reasonably priced too, the breakfast is a good buffet as well. The best thing about this hostel is the sauna, free every morning from 6:30-9:30 and then a fee afterwards. It's a great feature of the place, really makes you feel like you're in Finland! Also a good way to meet other people staying there too. The kitchens are a good size and also clean, as are the bathrooms which are very modern too! I would stay here again in an heartbeat!

My stay in the hostel was ok, I won't say it was superb nor say it was poor. It was enough for what I needed. The bathroom (each floor has a common bathroom for women and another one for men) was almost always clean. The kitchen is small and doesn't have that much equipments. The localization probably is the best thing the hostel has to offer. The staff helped us only when requested (what I mean here is: they didn't present the hostel upon our arrival nor made a quick introduction about the city), and they were polite. Basically, I would recommend Euro hostel if you are simply looking for a place to spend the night and don't expect much more from it.

We arrived at around 9pm in search for food. When we arrived, the kitchen is to be closed in 5 minutes. The server could have say no to us but she said she is willing to wait for us to place the order. We had salmon soup which my husband enjoyed it very much. It is a very Finnish dish. As is our first time having the soup, we thought it was delicious. My son and I shared the reindeer meatballs. Though the meatballs is a little dry but the gravy (brandy) actually could overcome the dryness. The server was friendly and was talking to us, suggesting places to visit. Despite us asking a lot of questions, she didn't seem to mind. Food wise, I can't give 4 star but services, I could give it a 4!

I ust stayed here, full of drunks, dirty kitchen, dirty towels, unhelpful staff, crap room, crap beds. Not good for meeting people or socialising. Below average. No personality. OK location. Overall i don't recommend this hostel.

This hostel is located in city centre with good tram access. Staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and the hostel has also sauna (free of charge in the morning). Negatives: noise in the night from the coridor. In the sauna should be written some rules and guests should have more then one towel for a stay - the sauna guests dont want to use the only one towel and they are sitting naked on the sauna bench and it is not hygienic. I have also seen some asiatic guest in sauna without using shower before - very disgusting...
