Well it was a really good price per night, but the location is not very close to the downtown, you have to take a bus everywhere, wich is a bit expensive, next the building its really old, the first time we didn´t recognize the hostel it was very late at night so you have to look very carefully to find...

The hostel itself was ok but we were very shocked to see that there were almost only immigrants/refugees staying there, all men who could not help but stare at all our moves. I was glad, as a female, to be there with male friends even though in the end they did nothing more than staring.

I know that there is refugee crisis in Europe but I still prefer not to sleep in a reception centre. Place was full of smoke because of 30 Arabian men cooking. I am also fine of having men around in a hostel but when they are staring at you like a big peace of meat.

It was a coincidence that I ended up at this hostel. I had booked an apartment much more expensive on my arrival and was disappointed. I had to find another one in less than one hour. It was the best decision I've made. It is a very well organized place where one can cook and meet people from different background... More

I stayed in one of the dorms for one night. The bed and the room was okay. The linen was included in the price. I got a locker and the lock (using card) for putting my stuff for free. The shower room, however, was too small for me. The kitchen, dining room and living room were alright and quite spacious.... More

Not the best hostel, but a basic 'budget' option in Helsinki. The double rooms are pretty nice and not expensive. The shared facilities and common areas are okay, however not really clean and a bit boring (especially the living room). The staff isn't very friendly and not willing to offer service or help. There is no breakfast, but on the... More

Cheap sleep for an expensive city! We all know that Helsinki it is not cheap, therefore making a comparison, this hostel offers a quite good accommodation in the city. The hostel itself is nice, welcoming and comfortable. I had a huge room, perhaps more or less 20 people were sleeping, furnished with new furniture and despite the number was well... More

One of the most awful places you could go to! THERE WASN'T ANY INFO POSTED ANYWHERE TO INFORM THAT THIS IS ACTUALLY A REFUGEE CAMP! The place is 99.9% packed with horny refugees that will stare at you like you're a piece of meat. I was terrified every time I went to the bathroom, and I didn't use the showers!... More

First thing it is not near the center of the city. you have to change two buses before you reach the rail station. The management is not up to the mark. They do not supervise the guests' moving about. no cleanliness is insisted in the kitchen. Everyone just cooks the food and leaves it either on the tables or in... More

It was functional as far as hostels go. Wasn't overly expensive and not all that far from downtown. However, there really wasn't much room in the dorms themselves. Also, the bathrooms were disgusting. I don't know if they'd been cleaned yet that month. You really do get what you pay for here.
