Service is pretty good at the hostel. Reception is on the place almost always and is very glad to help. Roms are in good condition, clean, with thick tv inside. The thing is, that walls are really tin, and you can hear if someone is talking in the next room, sneezing or snores, I would recommend taking something to put in your ears, just in case. There is a kitchen, where you can make food yourself, a hostel is providing with free tea, coffee and it's possible to ad sauce - ketchup or mustard. At my staying I had problems with wifi, it couldn't connect to a network and be pretty limited. The hotel has a good location, next to a swimming pool, in a quiet area of town. 900m away from the center of the city and ~500m to the closest store. If I hade a chance I would stay here for the second time.…
We booked a twin room which was a good size for the two of us, with 2 single beds ( I don’t think double beds are an option here?). The host was friendly, the place was clean and quiet. The shared bathroom was small but clean and the kitchen likewise. We didn’t self cater at the hostel but if we had tried I think the facilities were fairly limited. The location is fine, definitely walking distance to the old town etc- and the area of Porvoo immediately near the hostel also has some lovely old wooden buildings to admire. For breakfast the host suggested going across the road to the swimming pool where there is a buffet breakfast each morning- however the offerings there were pretty basic.
Small hostel with 12 or so rooms in a quite central location in Porvoo. The bathroom is shared (single one), separate for men and women as well as toilet (separate for men and women). The rooms were clean with clean linens and towels. We had a fridge in our room. Full of light, on a top of a hill. You have to get out by 10 AM (the reception is open until 10 AM and again in the evening).
We were brought to Porvoo by a wonderful musical event. The Avanti Festival itself is an extraordinary phenomenon in the musical life of Europe, and the combination of an ancient, charming city, the purest nature, white nights, friendly and very attentive people, makes our stay unforgettable. The hostel was not a hostel, it was our home for the time of our trip. The house is very spacious, it has a lot of air and light. The rooms are high and bright. The facilities are clean and conveniently located. I would like to express gratitude to the owners of the hostel for their attentive, responsiveness and delicacy.
Accommodation in a beautiful old building a short 1km walk from the Old Town - very spacious bedrooms and bery clean kitchen and bathrooms. Only bad thing was lack of privacy in women’s shared shower facility - only a glass screen in between showers and shower curtain does not enclose the shower. Make sure you do not arrive between 10-4 as the hostel is not staffed and locked between these times.
