Beds were nice. The lamps near the bed - very comfortable to read. Late time of check-in - 14.00. For those who come from Russia on the bus - very uncomfortable, as the busses usualy come early in the morning. No tea-pot in the kitchen or in the room or at the reception. very dirty toilet!!!!! Expensive and poor breakfast. The cafe for dinner opens only at 16.00.
Great central location close to downtown and port if you plan to take the ferry for the day trip to Tallinn. Staff were very friendly and courteous. Bathrooms, which are shared for the entire floor, were a bit messy.
It has the cheapest single-room in Helsinki. The budget rooms are quite old but 5 Euros cheaper. Free sauna included every day in the morning until 9.30 am. Tram directly in front of the hostel. 24h reception. Free towel. It is not a backpackers hostel. Therefore it is difficult to meet new people. The breakfast is not special for 7,70 Euros. Bathroom and shower room are not very convenient but Ok. Hostels and Hotels are expensive in Helsinki.
free sauna visit facility disrepair of the electric stove
A lot of information materials (broschures) by reception, kitchen possibiloty for use, shower ok, beer-garden with smoke possibility Few of dishes in the kitchen
In the old town. Very confortable and traditional.
The room was freezing; central heating could have been better.
Reception staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgable lack of soap in the ladies loo floor 2
Staff were exceptionally hepful in finding our baggage which had been misplaced by the airline. They kept making calls and chasing it up for us. Hostel is in great location and incredibly clean. Little bit noisy- you could hear a little bit from other rooms.
convenient, kind hotel staff, kitten and bathroom expecially (warm floor!!), silenсe, simplicity
Hostel is nearby of the city center, all rooms have a kitchen and bathroom. Optimal for modest travellers.
Near-central location and friendly staff. Very basic and my bed broke during the night!
Friendly staff with a smile. Very good and center location in the city. Easy to go around the sights. The hotel was very quiet and you got a good night sleep.
cleanliness, atmosphere, large bathroom
We liked that we had all needed (kitchen, toilet and shower) in a room and it was very quiet during the night. Also there was the clean room. Its right in the centre of Helsinki and we enjoyed to stay in this hostel so much.
Only stayed one night No
Top 3 things are: location (15 mins from train station, 7 mins from bus station), kitchen in the room and helpful staff. This hostel definitely costs its money. There is major overhaul in one of the hostel's buildings, however it doesn't bring any problems (like noise, etc) actually. The main thing to improve is kitchen appliances. I think basic set of dishes&appliances (like plates, cups, electric tea kettle) should be available in every room. Currently there are virtually no appliances in rooms, and guests have to use them in main kitchen - so it is not a big problem.
Cleanliness position staff Two beds
Staff was vert kind and helpful In a room, there was no kettle
Clean & convenient (once I got in), nice facilities, friendly staff. Confirming the reservation on their web site was a real problem, so I had to phone customer service several times. There was a technical problem getting in the front door, but customer service was able to correct that and then ther ewere no more problems.
It was cheap and the breakfast room was convenient. It had good WiFi sservice ...the kitchen was clean. The hall ways were in a mess and the shower and bath too far away.... sinks in rooms would be great
1. Quiet surroundings. 2.People in reception took good care to group customers of comparable ages in the same common dormitory. 3.Self catering as an option. Some of the guests were not very considerate to others, rest but this cannot be put to the hotel as such.
It was a basic hostel, nice and clean and with all the basic things but nothing fancy. The beds were comfortable enough and the blankets were really warm, I had a good night sleep there. The location is a bit off the center, but the trams are really fast and it's not a long walk either. Excellent for the money I paid, and really, in Helsinki this is one of the best budget places to stay at. The staff was ok but not too friendly. I had to ask them for some simple advice about the city and they helped allright, but it was like it was something really unpleasant for them.
cheap and convenient hotel
