I stayed in a room on my own which was very large and had a sofa, small fridge, desk and lots of nice, solid bunk beds. The hostel was really clean and had a lovely feel to it. It was quiet and the staff where really friendly and helpful. The only issue for me was that the wifi didn't reach... More

The hostel was easy to find by car and had free parking spots right outside. The room was large and linnen and towel was included in the price. The room had a refrigerator as well. WiFi connection was good. Breakfast was ordinary and good. It's close to both city center and attractions as the Forum Marinum and Turku castle. Staff... More

This hostel is clean accommodating and located walking distance of the little you might want to see. Decent kitchen, appliances that work and parking outside. Door locked at midnight but they will open whatever time. People talk in hushed tones - just that sort of place.

The hostel was very clean and the building itself was really beautiful! The location was ideal and I also got a free parking lot just next to the front door. The whole hostel was really, really clean and tidy. I especially liked the bathrooms where every stall had it's own mirror and sink. The receptionists were both friendly and we... More

After being disappointed by HI in Helsinki, I was pleasantly surprised by the one in Turku. Only half an hour walk, or a short trip one bus line 1, from the bus terminal in one direction, and the ferries on the other. It's also very close to the river, and plenty of sites and a supermarket within walking distance. Staff... More

Good location, very nice price and I felt safe during the night. Good services. Clean everywhere. Vey friendly customer-service. Possible to have a breakfast. I booked the hostel by a short thinking and got what I wanted. If you need a quick, easy and low-price place to stay even for a night, you couldn't have a better choice in Turku.

cosy with all the wooden interieur, really clean, friendly staff, nicely located as it's walking distance to train and ferry, probably not so much a party place (though now it's off season and midweek, can't really say), best place i've stayed in for a while

Friendly staff, in downtown Turku, short walking distance from everywhere, clean and they serve complimentary hot chocolate in the evenings. The furniture is not worn and it does not look run down like Stadion Hostel in Helsinki.

The hostel is located centrally between the harbour and central bus/train station. However, it is about a 15 minute walk to town. Facilities are clean and big. Staff seem uninterested. Very comfortable beds.
