Then owner of the hostel is very welcoming and although he spoke broken English he was really helpful. The location is good and it is in easy reach of the city and port area. The ferry I took was from the other port but it was easily reachable on the tram (or a 90 minute walk).
The hostel is clean, cosy and pretty compact with the kitchen area being in the main reception. The beds are also very close together- this wasn't a problem per say but you certainly feel like you might well be in bed with the people next to you! From the room I stayed in you also need to walk through the reception to reach the toilet and the shower. However, that aside, all in all good value for money in (very) expensive Helsinki and I would happily stay here again.
