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.

Hostelling International is a good association, it's not the Hilton but it's not as expensive so don't complain. They ahve solid hostels, not fancy maybe but they never go under a certain threshold. For example the Turku one is hypercentral, on the river, cozy place, with a PC available for free (wifi for some strange reason decided not to work... More

In the past years I have stayed in many hostels in different Nordic countries, so thought I knew what to expect from a hostel. But Hostel Turku exceeded my expectations with a clear margin! A clean room, excellent breakfast, good facilities and great location for a stay before a ferry trip to Sweden!

My friends and I stayed here one night while in Turku. The receptionist was very friendly. Our triple room was close to the lounge area so we were able to use the wifi easily. The location was great; it's easy walking distance to many restaurants and bars and very close to the water. The rooms were a bit outdated, but... More

We stayed 3 night in this hostel and really liked it. It is beautifully located next to the river Aura. We really appreciated that there was a childerns corner in one of the kitchens with toys and also a bathroom with a potty for small children. Outside the entrance there is a gate to a playing ground at a kindergarten... More

Very nice and quite place to stay in Turku. Pretty close to every location in a city, near the river. The place has large and cosy 'entrance' room with reception, chairs, wifi and free tea (at 6 PM). Plus nice and smiling girl on reception - you probably know how accidental smile can cheer you up even when you're tired;... More
