I had the pleasure of spending two nights in a Single Room at Hostel Erottajanpuisto in June 2012. The Hostel is located in two repurposed flats on the second floor of a beautiful old apartment building located on Uudenmaankatu – right in the middle of the ‘design district’. Location is very central and the neighbourhood is friendly with lots of cafes, restaurants and small, arty shops.
If you have lots of luggage, getting up the staircase leading to reception can be daunting (there is no lift), but the cheerful and extremely helpful staff soon make up for that.
My room was bright and clean, had an own sink and mirror as well as a TV. The bed was comfortable, though the walls to the adjoining room where a bit too thin for my liking. But nothing earplugs could not fix.
The hostel has several small toilets and showers, but maybe not quite enough showers to prevent the odd wait at ‘peak hours’.
There’s a communal kitchen, a PC with internet access for free use as well as Wifi. Lockers can be hired for a fee of 2 Euros plus deposit. The reception area is well equipped with info material for travellers
Overall the atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed and I very much enjoyed my stay here. Would I return? Definitely.
