The property was earlier a hotel that got turned to a hostel. Average size rooms with average furniture. Overall appearance is tidy. Rudolf does not have any café or restaurant nor breakfast service. There were just a couple of wending machines in the corridor. The worst part was that customer check in to Rudolf was to be done at the... More

Rudolf has obviously earlier been a hotel that has been downgraded to a hostel. That is why it is like a hotel. Spacious clean rooms with avarage furniture, three beds. Rooms are with shower/wc. Overall appearance is tidy. Price/ quality relation ok. If you are three, it is approx. 20 e/ persons (with the price we paid) which is cheap.... More

We stayed here for 8 nights and it was really great. The location is perfect, about 10 minutes to the center and there are supermarkets, Mcdonalds and travel agencies nearby. It's not cheap like other hostels around the world but it's the cheapest in Rovaniemi. The room is small but clean and its warm.There's a Free wi-fi and there's a... More

I went in March alone but ended up having the room to myself. It's very clean and comfortable. It is expensive for a hostel but that's what you have to expect in Lapland. It's about a 10 minute walk from Santa Claus Hotel(where you check in) and pubs, shops etc..McDonalds is just down the road so if you get hungry,... More

I got to the hostel having arrived at the train station. Having left my main pack in the large lockers at the station (2€), I walked the 10-15 minutes to the hotel Santa Claus (with day sack) to check in. Tip - You can get a map from the ticket office as you go in on the right hand side.... More

+ by far the cheapest place in rovaniemi, fairly central, clean, wifi free - check in 500m away, for a hostel relatively expensive, no common area like a 'proper' hostel ( i think there might be a small kitchen though)

The reception is far away from the hostel. It takes 45 mins to walk to there, carrying your luggage walking on the snow. The wifi is very weak and slow. The place is small and dirty. The surrounding area is very dark at night, I dont think it is safe. It is very expensive, over £100 for a night

The title says it all really, the price is a bit on the high side by Finnish standards but not overly so. The town is quite small so here walking is no problem, is closer to train station. There were no really other options for hostels when I booked, but given than I had the room to myself for three... More
