Room had very unpleasant smell, like in hospital. In description is information,that hostel has sauna and pool, unfortunetly it wasn't so, and reception doesn't inform us about that at the reception desk, only after asking, information was givven.No safe parking area, as everywhere was renovation technique. Clean shower room was the only good thing there.

Quiet place far from the center. Paid about €65 for a twin room. Bedroom looks OK, but bathroom more like a hospital and you have to make your own bed. Small pool and good size sauna, but no towels. Next time I would pay a bit extra for staying in a more central location (travelling with bicycle)

Stayed for one night in a family room, which was spacious and had everything you would need for a relaxing stay with the kids. A private bathroom/toilet, kitchenette with cooking plates, microwave, fridge, toaster and loads of kitchenware, even a tv. Sheets and towels included, you don't need to bring anything. Everything was impeccably clean as well. Lots of things to do: disc golf course (it's in the forest with lots of mosquitoes, wear proper clothing), sauna with a swimming pool, a small but well-equipped kids' room (toys, books, drawing supplies, a game console). Table tennis, air hockey, a sand box for the little ones. If you're a family of more than four persons, it's worth asking directly at the hostel what would be the best room arrangement for you, at least one extra small child didn't cost anything in the same room (we were five people, youngest four years old). Not too far from Turku city center and it seemed to be accessible by public transport too, there was a bus stop nearby (don't know how well it works, went by car). Didn't try the breakfast either as we had to depart early to catch the ferry to Åland. Supermarket one kilometer away, the reception had a reasonably priced kiosque with snacks, sandwiches, ice cream etc.

I stayed 1 night in hostel room. Great price and value for money, it has own bathroom with shower. Sauna (good sauna!) and pool was free of charge. Breakfast buffet with additional 7 euros was big and had a lots of variety, oatmeal, eggs, yoghurt, various bread and toppings, juice, hot drinks etc. In hostel you just make your own bed, linen is provided, room is not big but ok for one person, TV and WiFi works well. I would stay again, definitely.

It was one of the best places I have ever stayed! We traveled together with my Mum and she also liked the hostel :) --Very clean, everything: the room, the bathroom, the kitchen --the beds are comfortable --The staff is very helpful and friendly --we asked for a quiet room and it we got it (but, probably, all rooms are quiet there :) --The location is very nice (it`s not in the center but the connection to the center is very convenient and also you can walk there, it`s a nice walk, about 30 minutes along the river), the hostel is located almost in the forest so it`s a great relaxing view from the window and amazingly fresh air --there is a place to eat nearby (not a fancy one but you won`t be hungry) and a supermarket in 2 stops Just 2 small minuses: --first time it might be a little tricky to find the place (even at the tourist office in the center they told us the wrong bus stop to go out) so, maybe, it`d be nice to put on the site more detailed directions. There are a few buses to get to the hostel but for the first time IMHO it`s better to take buses 14, 15 (from the market square or from the bus station) and go out at the bus stop Lustokatu (№1615) -then just go a little ahead and Lustokatu street will be the first street on the right. --the breakfast was a little too early for us, till 9am during workdays and till 10am at the weekends (we ordered it on Saturday and we came for breakfast at 9:30am but there were not so much food left but it was tasty). But, actually, you don`t need breakfast as you can buy everything you need and put it in the fridge and cook breakfast yourself in the kitchen
