I just stayed for most of the week and the hostel is a welcoming comfy place to recover a long day exploring in the cold March weather. It was basic accommodation but totally adequate. I would highly recommend it for solo travellers, group travellers and families. It is less than 5 minutes from to ferry which will take you into Helsinki in 15 minutes. A great find!

We stayed for one night with our 9 month baby. Facilities were okay but bedlinens smelled as detergent so badly that I couldn’t almost sleep at all. I hope that they would start use non-perfurmed detergents. I liked the hostel overall and would like to stay there in future (with no smell).

Good Room. Nice services. Exciting Nature and only 15 min to Helsinki. The Island was a great place to see and we enjoyed a nice koncert in the Church. The hostel had a very calm atmosphere and some really nice staff. Overall a good experience and the place can be recommended.

Less than 5 minutes from where the ferry drops off passengers. We used the hostel for a week but didn’t stop overnight. Staff were friendly and the food was simple but good. The hostel was clean and functional.
