It's actually quite a nice place. Beds are metal but not wobbly and squeaky, they are very comfortable. Kitchen is very well equipped. I stayed in both the 8 and the 5 bed rooms. 8 bed room can get quite stuffy if the heat is on, I had to turn it off a couple times. Finland is full of friendly... More

Excellent hostel with a feeling like home. Great kitchen/dining area which has everything you need. Very good location, about a 10-minute walk from central train station. Excellent WiFi. Friendly, helpful staff.

Stayed in a 5 bed mixed doom room. I was told to sleep on a camp-bed despite the room not being completely full. Had no complaints with the bed - just some very loud snorers made it difficult to sleep! But all fine in the end. There is a kitchen/common room which is quite cosy. Good to meet new people....

I was visiting Helsinki for a rockconcert at Tavastia of 22 Pistepirkko Finland's best R & R band. So I only needed a simple room to sleep. I can recommend Erottajanpuisto. I had my own small but clean room. The communal showers and toilets down the hall incidentally were as common in Scandinavia spotless. WiFi worked well and the breakfast... More

I enjoyed my two nights here, the room was clean and comfortable, the location was good and I met some great people. It's very quiet, including silence after 11pm, which will definitely suit some travellers. The wifi was slow and intermittent and there was often a wait for an available shower, and I also missed having a lounge area, as... More

The hostel is good, near the center of the city and many of the main points of interests. Good kitchen where you can cook and have interesting chats with the other guests. The place is very quiet and the rooms and bathrooms are ok. The main problem is the WiFi that didn't work properly (only 20% of the time worked... More

Located near the train station (5-7 mins walk) and main market (10mins walk) I had a 3 shared female dorm and it was great! (Only problem was that people smoke literally right under our room and I am highly sensitive to smoke and sneezed the whole time) They keep the hostel very clean and tidy! The staff is very helpful... More

very nice and cosy hostel. The showers and the rooms are clean. The common room has a good kitchen and some tables. There isn't really another place to hang out. You have to be quiet in the common room after 11pm.

The hostel is quite near the central Station and most of the attractions in Helsinki. The rooms were clean and with washbasin. Breakfast is not included on the price. The reception is at the second floor and the building has no lift so it was exhaustive going upstairs with a suitcase, but not so terrible.
