“Great position”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We came visiting Helsinki and we decided to stay in Erottajanpuisto because of its position and we weren't disappointed about it, perfect for visiting. The staff was helpful but a bit cold, looked like they had always something better to do than listening to you (and they're probably right but it's part of your job :D) The kitchen was big and comfortable which to me it's a great plus, the rooms were fine but the bathroom needed to be renovated; I felt a lack of atmosphere, everyone was on his own and it is quite strange for an hostel. Anyway I think it's really hard to find a better cheap accomodation in Helsinki so I would recommend it without any doubt

I loved the historical building, the kitchen and the sofa, this hostel is quite historical and valueble.

The beds are old and not comfortable I can say, but the batrooms are nice, showers strong, and positions of the hostle is perfect. And quite, no traffic by the windows. There is also internet, print service, and towel free.

I was so good here, thanks! I suggest to the boss to invest money is new beds, so it will be perfect!

The hostel is well located. We had a double room that required us to walk through the kitchen to get to the bathroom, which was annoying. Also the bed to toilet ratio is terrible. We were always waiting for the bathroom. Friendly staff.

Helsinki was the end point of our marshrut this year, it was wonderful! This place is a real European hostel is one of those that we have been. Very clean and comfortable, working wifi, great atmosphere and a lot of young people. Thanks to the staff for the wonderful 3 days in Helsinki.

I was two times three nights in this hostel. A friendly and easy place to stay and really great located. The kitchen is big and has everything. I was in a single room – small but cozy and with a TV and a sink. I had the toilette and the shower near to my room. The personal is friendly, helpful and hard-working. The hostel is small and in an old building. It was no problem for me to carry my luggage two floors. Everything seems old but it’s clean. One night I had little noisy neighbors coming late and going early and other times I heard the reception late and early. But so are the hostels. If you want to sleep well and long, you have to go to a hotel and pay more. Good place to stay in Helsinki!

Stayed one night there and the room was very nice. The staff is polite, WiFi works well, everything is clean (you can actually smell how clean it is :)), you have maps at the reception to move around. Overall I'd say a pretty good experience. There was a bit of noise in the morning, but nothing to ruin my beloved morning sleep.

Very nice hostel. Well kept and clean. Great location but could get a little noisy due to numerous bars and pubs. All the good sides of a hostel (down-to-earth, friendly, value etc) are hard not to notice whereas the negatives are kept to a minimum. Leaves good impression.

Room Tip: Ask for a second pillow.
