The hostel is located just couple of minutes from the tram stop, and about 20 minutes from the Old Market Hall. The hotel is very clean. The rooms (singles or doubles) are really comfortable, and are enough to sleep, with a basic bed, closet and tv. Each floor has its share bathrooms . shower room and toilet (men and women, separately, of course). The breakfast offered in the restaurant is good, nothing fancy, but cheap comparing it to prices outside – still I would recommend you not to have your meals here. The Old Market has better options. The personnel is nice and attentive, in general terms.I would definitely go back to this place. It’s more than worthy for the money you pay.

Twin room was basic and warm with wardrobe's and single beds, the shared shower room/toilet was located on the same floor, very clean. Location was great just a short tram ride to the centre and steps away from the hostel. Walking distance was only 20mins, walking by the docks, seeing the pretty sights. Staff super friendly and helpful! The bar/restaurant was your basic food but a friendly environment. Free sauna from 6am to 9am, nude or towel use, separate saunas for men and woman. Would happily go back again

I'm loving it. Fist of all the location is great, even it isn't in the busiest town centre it takes just few minutes to get there by tram. Place is nicely decorated and the staff is friendly. And the best part it the sauna, if you haven't tested sauna before start here you won't be disappointed 😊😊 I'll most definitely come here again and you should too

perfect for one night stay, if you don't need luxiory. basic room, clean and tidy, bathroom also. about 25min walk from station. 15min walk from habour. can be bit noisy at night.. good stay. 2pers room has enough space for stay. although it was a non smoking room, it smelled like cigatettes 😕

Take a tram from the center or walk 20 min to the hostel. You can have breafast else were, Simple tidy room with all necessary things. Näppärä halpa yöpaikka Vinkkarilla kulkiessa. Siisti kapea huone rauhallisella paikalla Katajanokalla.

I liked everything about this hostel. The service it’s location, the utilities etc. They have a bistro with variety of beer & food. Have to appreciate the maintenance. The WC are always clean. Just one funny thing about the place is that the corridors are warmer than your room. The Finnish weather is no joke lol

Very simple facilities but all you need to visit Helsinki and at a decent price. Beds, warm room, free wifi, clean showers and a kitchen plus many good resources, including the staff, to help plan visiting the city. The morning sauna is a nice addition too. Keep in mind that you are sharing facilities with other people which are clean and in good order. Be prepared to see more of your neighbours than you might wish. The restaurant is available but with Helsinki on the door step, you can find better in the city. Good location close to the cathedrals, Senate Square and ferry port and right next to the tram stop that runs to the city centre. Only downside, we couldn't work out how to control the heating in the room so resorted to opening the window which is not ideal. Otherwise, can't complain.

My room was a single room with a shared bathroom down the hall. Each hall has a female and male restroom and shower area. The room was basic with a twin bed, large desk and chair, plus a book shelf as well as a large wardrobe area with more shelves. Clean bedding was provided along with a blanket. Would have liked a better pillow, but it was nothing that could not be overcome. Stayed three nights. It was quiet. First floor laundry was available for washing and drying. The daily breakfast costs 10 Euros and at first I thought it was expensive until I went to other places in Helsinki and discovered that it was a good bargain that should not be missed if you enjoy a big breakfast each day. It had all a person could want and the food was good as well. There is a tram stop within 100 feet of the entrance that made it convenient to go to anywhere in the city. Within 10 minutes walking distance is the Viking Ferry line where you can catch the ship to go to Tallinn, Estonia, which was very convenient. I came to the hostel from the Airport without any trouble and just had to get off the Airport train, walk a few blocks and then was on the tram. Purchased the 72 hour Helsinki Card which paid for itself with museum trips, city tours, ferry to Suomenlinna and unlimited public transportation rides. Would definitely stay again. A bargain when traveling solo to Helsinki.

Had a single room with shared bathroom. Had a really comfortable stay. The staff is really helpful. Yes, it is a bit away from the heart of the city but we have tram service right outside and if you don't mind a bit of a walk, you can have great views on the side. Really miss the place.

The hostel is very clean, including the shared bathrooms (you can listen to some bird singing when using them, awesome!). The internet conexion is excellent! The breakfast is not included, you'll pay €10 per person for a buffet breakfast (it's a pricy but that's the average price for Scandinavian standars) and ithere is a good variety of breads, fruits and cold and hot drinks.
