I spent 1 night at the dorm room here. It was very enjoyable. For me, the best part of this hostel is the location. The feeling that you're staying on an island separated by (although it's only) a 15-minute ferry ride but still inside the capital area was quite interesting. It's more calm and peaceful. Plus, you can take a... More

Spent a good night staying here. Very easy to get to and from using the ferry from the market place. Hostel was simple, but clean, bright, with friendly staff and good shared dorm room. Big communal space to relax / for breakfast. Perfect to start from if you are wanting a tour of this fortress island, I had a very... More

I enjoyed staying here! It was very quiet during my stay but I met plenty of people just being on this gem of an island. There are a handful of cafes and bars to stop in, and many people spend the day out here anyway to have a cool picnic. But if you don't want to stay on the island... More

This is a great hostel, as long as you aren't expecting to party. After a long trip, this was my last stop and the quiet Suomenlinna Hostel was exactly what I wanted. I'd definitely go here again. Don't be put off by the location from Helsinki- even in the "low" season there are multiple ferries each hour and it leaves... More

Booked this place solely based on the location and of course the reviews of the hostel itself. The ferry ride from the Market Square was shorter than expected, a mere 12 minute ride. To me this place offered the best of two worlds, staying in a quiet scenic place and at the same time being very close to the city... More

The hostel is on the island of Suomolinna, not the mainland of Helsinki. This hostel was quiet and very clean. A staff member was there to make breakfast for me in the morning even though I was the only customer staying there at the time. The best part was that even though it was well below freezing and snowing outside... More

Think about it, it's a chance for you to stay ON a world heritage site, isn't that enough already?! No, but seriously. This place is very quite. The check in time is relatively short, but they gave you a code in case you arrive after the attendent left the office. Maybe it's because of the weekend and I asked for... More

Fairly inexpensive, hostel was clean, very quiet no partying goes on at this hostel. Somewhat inconvenient due to having to get the ferry back and forth to Helsinki Market Square, but you know that before you book, ferry is fairly cheap. The novelty of staying on the island was pretty good. Great to walk around the island fortress in the... More

This was one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed at in all my travels and you can't find a more unique location in Helsinki with a hostel. Suomenlinna is a really interesting gem in Helsinki and being able to stay there over night is brilliant. The hostel has clean rooms and bathrooms which is really kind of rare for hostels... More
