Excellent location - in center of old city with museum, old factories and shopping /service center in walking distance (10 min to info center, 5 min to museum Arktikum [and others] with my kid). For people following the nature this distance is really nothing. The hotel (hostel) do have everything a family can need. We did make some brasil spargetti... More

Room was clean and adeqaute although there was a strong draft coming through the window, not so pleasant at -15 degrees. Kitchen did not appear to be cleaned once in four nights and was rather unhygenic and dirty (microwave smelt and there was hair in the dish scrubbing brush).

Stayed here a couple of nights ago. Rovaneimi unexpectedly warm -,no need for any of the heavy, cold weather clothes we had bought. Check in at the Santa Hotel, easily found in the centre of town, where helpful receptionists book you in and direct you to the hostel a 10 minute stroll away. It's basically an ex hotel but they...

I decided to visit the Polar Circle. It was awesome but there were about minus 27 degrees. It was the first time in my life when I thought that I will be frozen, haha. The hostel was quite beautiful, basic but lovely and welcoming. I stayed into a triple with two friends of mine and we loved to stay there,... More

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)
