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.

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
