The Help Hostel is an easy walk from/to the city center. I had the only private room which was adequate & clean but does not have en-suite toilet. There are 3 toilets & 1 shower for the entire hostel, which is on the small side. The staff are all very pleasant & helpful. Helsinki is an outrageously expensive city, so... More

Then owner of the hostel is very welcoming and although he spoke broken English he was really helpful. The location is good and it is in easy reach of the city and port area. The ferry I took was from the other port but it was easily reachable on the tram (or a 90 minute walk). The hostel is clean,... More

Nice, Clean, Friendly, free coffee, free upgrade, good wifi, nice shower, good location!!! We choose this hostel because it was right next to the ferry and that's what was important for us, turns out it was also next to everything! This place was great and spotless in terms of cleaness!

Stayed at HelpHostel for 5 nights and had a nice and comfy stay. Location: Great, near the stunning Uspenski Cathedral, very close to downtown literally 5mins from Market Sq and the Harbour on foot. Senate Sq is like 7mins on foot and the Central Station - where bus n.615 that links Vaanta Airport to the city centre stops- is 10mins... More

We only stayed at the hostel for a night but we wished we had stayed longer! We were welcomed by super nice receptionist, Ikka! Our room was very clean, bright and spacious (we had a double room)! You can find everything that you need for cooking in the kitchen and again, spacious open kitchen! Anyways, we asked Ikka for some... More

Location is the key with this hostel - roughly 10-15 min walk from the main railway station and close to some of the main sights of Helsinki. Also in a quiet neighbourhood which we at least felt safe in. Travelling as a large group for a hen party, we took over most of the hostel so had the hospital-like room... More

It's a shabby hostel in an old building, where rooms are locked with keys that look like those with which you usually lock table drawers, and walls made of cardboard (there is also a chance to rent not a room, but a bed behind a curtain), which is a bit unexpected. But it's cosy, it's clean, and there is an... More

On the up side, the room I stayed in was clean and the location isn't too far from the Central Market. It is a small hostel but the facilities (internet, tv, kitchen) are decent. On the down side, beds in the large dorm room are squeezed in like battery hen cages and as far as I could ascertain it has... More
