I have stayed here 2 nights and it was not a pleasant experience. The Hostel is "cheap", compared to Helsinki standards (though 60 EUR a night for a 16 shared would be expensive in most other cities). The receptionists are friendly, but not really helpful, they tell you the basics and then refer you to maps and info on the... More

This place was my last resort when everything close in town was full. Reception staff was really friendly, helpful, and kind. However, since I was coming in late, I could not turn on the light to see in the room since people were sleeping. It wasn't until the morning that I realized my sheets were definitely dirty. There were stains... More

One of cheapest places to stay in Helsinki. It is well connected to town and the airport, supermarket downstairs is good. Staff helpful and friendly. Showers clean, looks like it is new, furniture quite fresh. Three fridges, good system to keep good in them. For sleeping and rest after a long day out in town.

I stayed in Sheap Sleep Hostel for two nights. In general, I liked the place- location is very good, just above grocery store and a minute on foot to the bus- and tram station. Friendly stuff gave me all necessary information. Moreover, one may book a bus/tram ticket at the reception desk, it is very convenient. I booked 10-bed women... More

The hostel has potential to be great but has a very weird vibe and most people keep to themselves. Located a little further out of town but close to a few bars it's not a long walk into town past the lake. Wouldn't recommend going as a lone traveller due to the vibe - or lack thereof but would be... More

Brilliant hostel in Helsinki! All was clean and very spacious! When we were there we had very friendly staff who were helping us at all the time. The location of the hostel was ok to find and not too far away from all tractions that you can see in Helsinky.

The hostel was very nice to stay in, provided all the necessities and had a very helpful staff. The beds were good and you were given a free locker. Location-wise it's close to a newer part of the city, Kalio, which is a bit farther from the centre, but very reachable by public transport. I even walked it a few... More

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay :) the walk to the city center through the wooden house district Vallila is indeed quite nice and you get to see the youthful Kallio district where you can find many popular bars, cafes and small cute shops. It's also quite quick to walk to the nearest subway station (1km... More

Good facilities, access to refrigerator, stove, water, microwave, etc. Good accommodation for price, not one of the most lively atmospheres but has a large main room to sit with other travelers. For those just looking for a nice, comfortable room to sleep its a good fit. Only difficulty is access after about 8 pm, the cheapest way is the bus... More
