We stayed here for 2 nights and it was acceptable. The staff were great! However, the hostel is far from the city centre maybe 30 mins walk. And some of it is up a hill. The hostel is located inside the stadium. The accommodation was very basic. 12 people in 1 room. Showers were average. Breakfast for 6.50 eur was... More

Stadion Hostel is located in a very pretty area, but if you are travelling via public transport with more than a backpack, be prepared for a bit of a walk from the tram. The signage from the main road is great, but signage for the entrance isn't visable from the street, so you have to keep walking into a carpark... More

what do you expect from a hostel? super-friendly helpful staff, tidy rooms, clean bathing facilities, well-equipped kitchen, airy dining room, lots of interesting people to talk to in the evenings and cheap prices. You'll find it all in this hostel. We stayed there for just one night but there were tourists who stayed for two weeks. We paid only 58... More

Hostel is good for small budjet travellers. Rooms are fine, but beds are slightly uncomfortable. Dining room and TV room are i good condition. Check-in times are flexible and you can stay longer if there is room.

If you plan to stay in Helsinki for only 2-3 days (and spend them by whole-day sightseeing, using hostel only for sleeping), you can choose Stadion Hostel. It looks outdated, there is only a limited space in the room (we stayed in the room for 3 people), no washstand. Shared bathrooms were clean and usable. We were able to connect... More

Typical hostel with your huge rooms with 10 beds and shared bathrooms that aren't super clean. If you're on a budget and traveling solo, this might be the best deal in town, but if you're willing to spend a couple eurosmore, look for other hostels in a better location. This hostel was pretty hard to find because it's behind the... More

Don't bother staying here, it's so old and basic, the Internet only works in the lobby, the showers are terrible with hardly any privacy, the beds are like children's beds and the pillows are rubbish. The staff are not very friendly. The shared kitchen is one you would expect on a fishing boat in the arctic. Also the people that... More

This is a decent hostel. Very spacious dorms and quite a few nice areas to hang out. Location isn't great but it is walking distance into the centre (15-20 mins). It does feel a outdated in certain areas compared to modern hostels mainly because of the basic hardboard-type of wood in the corridors. There's a bit of artwork on the... More

My husband and I chose a private room with shared bathroom - they only have bunk beds in these rooms, no double beds, but no problem. It was the cheapest option for us in a very expensive city. We still found the price to be much higher than it should have been (50 euros for a hostel room with bunk... More

I come back to the hostel at 4.30 a.m. from the party. The guy at reception meet me with a terrible speech. He said, that it is unacceptable behavior. It was really rude. He didn't gave me a towel and he gave me a key to the room other that I'd booked. He explained that it is only about my... More

Dear Arina P, I am sorry to hear that you had a problem when returning to the hostel at night. It seems that there has been a misunderstanding between yourself and the receptionist. The hostel has "silent hours" from 11pm until 7am to guarantee a good night's sleep for guests, and we do not check in new guests into dormitory... More
