Hostel cafe is right in the middle of happening places...hotels,night clubs nearby,bars,restaurants,supermarkest,the shopping center,you name it..and bus stops are a stone's throw away! We stayed 2nights..so as to do all we needed to do in Rovaniemi. The rooms are clean(ok,if you ignore the hair we found in the bed,but was quickly sorted...it could have been hair from the housekeeping team 💁‍♀️).The linen is white,i mean,pure white-that moved me,especially being a small place. Its cozy...warm...and everybody was minding their business,staff and guests!! The breakfast is continental,but enough,bread is fresh and warm too! We had a drink in the cafe after a looong walk and i loooved the Irish coffee...was quite good(though i prefer it really hot). Yeah,i would recomend it,very much!

Apart from the rather big and well-equipped rooms, the staff of the hostel is simply amazing! Very kind and trying their best to make your stay as good as possible. They also provide you with very honest tips for activities in the nearby area. As I had to leave very early in the morning, they offered me to prepare a small breakfast box for take-away which was one of its kind - maybe one of the best things I've ever got for take-away! Additionally, it was completely plastic-free. Another big plus! I would definitely recommend this accomodation.

Stayed in a 10 pax dorm during low season ( end Sep) , only few of us in the dorm. Comfy bed and duvet. They have the lockers at the entrance to the room instead of next to bed, which is a better arrangement, there are rooms for big luggage. There is a shared kitchen and lounge at the same floor, with all cooking utensils that you need. Shared Bathroom are spacious, unlike bathroom that I had seen in other hostels. There are few supermarkets and restaurant within walking distance, and also bus stop for buses heading Santa Village.

Stayed in a double room. Really good breakfast, comfy beds, good sauna (available one hour per day), nice staff. Can't go wrong - stay here. Only thing is there is no tea or coffee in the room, so buy some from the supermarket and use the kitchen for the hot water

It was really good, and I think the cheapest hostel in the center. It's really clean, the staff is really nice and helpful. I was in a dorm with others, and it was calm, and not so noisy at all. The sauna is cool too. I enjoyed my stay there.

My wife and I stayed for two nights. The hostel was great. The room was large and very nicely decorated, it was very clean. It was located in the centre of town. Breakfast was great, delicious food and lots of choice. We also ate lunch there which was good value. The staff were very friendly and helpful, giving local advice regarding taxi fares etc. We were able to lock our luggage away on the last day for as long as we wished which was helpful. We would definitely stay again.

I stayed there from 19th til 26th of January. May I say that the location is perfect, rooms are nice, everything you need after a long day of exploring the city. Breakfast was good, they have home baked bread and plant based milk, that goes perfectly with the best and tastiest coffee in town! Staff is very friendly! Tip: They don't have hairdryer in the bathroom, you have to ask for on at the reception for 5 eur (deposit, you will get it back!) for the whole time you are staying there.

The staff seemed rude and unhelpful, the room was nothing special but you pay for what you get so all ok in that sense. When we arrived there was a used cotton bud on the carpet and the pillows and bed sheets didn’t smell fresh and had hairs on them. Breakfast however was ok. Nothing too much to choose from but satisfied after. This was close to a 24hour super market which was ideal and the location for restaurants was good.
