“Cosy place proximity to station, trams, shopping areas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2009

We were in Helsinki for 3 nights and living at Hostel Mekka was like being at home. The staff is friendly, helpful and the service is good. The proximity to the central station, trams and shopping areas makes it easy to navigate. The rooms are spacious, clean and the beds are clean and cosy. Internet was not available – but there is a cyber café a few blocks from Mekka. We did not meet any other visitors – the place was quite and lacked atmosphere. Its not a fun place to live unlike other hostels. If you are a student, you can get additional discounts - do as at the reception before checking in.

  • Liked — Cosy, comfortable, inviting staff, location
  • Disliked — internet service not available, lacks ambience of a vibrant hostel
  • Stayed April 2006, traveled with friends
