An amazing price/quality ratio! For just a third of the price of a city centre hotel room you'll get a unique and quiet room in a historical building. The hostel is spotlessly clean and the staff is nice. Breakfast is good (and stunningly inexpensive). Remember to reserve your breakfast already upon booking.

A small getaway from city life. Helsinki is a quiet city but sometimes one wants to get away from it all. I loved staying at this hostel. Dorm is a dorm but I kind of agreed with a friend that next we'll take a twin here, instead of taking a place in the city. Really nice staff, clean and practical.

Nothing fancy but it does the job. It's clean and the staff were friendly. Just be careful when booking, because (at least the time of year that I was there) there were no ferries to the mainland between 2am-6am. This was a problem for me because I had a flight out at 8am. That's not the hostel's fault though.
My only complaints for the hostel were:
• The lockers are not big enough for most luggage, especially with the shelf, so you can't lock up your luggage
• There's no bin in one of the female toilet cubicles. I know that there's one under the sink outside, but I think it's a necessity to have bins in female toilets
• The shower curtains float inwards while you're showering, which is uncomfortable

Hi Martha!

Thank you for your feed back!
We never actually thought about the bins in both down stairs female toilettes, and now that it`s mentioned we`ll deffinately fix that one :). Thanks! We have noticed the problem with the lockers. Some guests want the shelfs and some just a big enough locker for luggage. There are ones without the shelfs but offcourse it`s a problem if those are not available. We´ll think about it and perhaps take the shelfs off them all. The problem with the shower curtains is a bit harder to solve. In a longer term, perhaps we could invest on shower doors. Good point absolutely. Anyway, i´m glad to hear your stay was overall a good experience! Hope to have you again at our Hostel :)

The hotel was very clean and quiet. Staying on Suomenlinna was a neat experience. It was a great decision to get up to explore the fortress before most tourists got there later in the morning. The hostel kitchen is quite small, but there is a small grocery store beside the hostel. The hostel is often unstaffed, but it's set up so you can check yourself in at anytime and pay in the morning when someone is at the desk. I would definitely recommend the hostel.

Hi!

Thank you for your feed back!
I´m glad to hear you had a good experience with us :)
The kitchen is quite small and only ment for ligt cooking. At the moment we can`t really do much about it, even if we want to :( But we´ll try to keep it clean and well equipped.
Hope to see you again!

This hostel is nice and quiet and in a great location. The ferry to the island runs frequently enough to not be a problem. The beds were OK, except the bunks were too low that you couldnt sit up in the bottom bunk. The lockers were too small for our bags so we had to clog up the floor space with them. The lack of staff was strange. If you come after check in and leave early in the morning you will struggle to pay for your stay!! It's always nice when a hostel has staff available incase you have any questions or problems.
The showers were horrible! The shower curtains kept blowing in and sticking to me. My friend had the same problem. It made it very difficult to shower.
