Everything was as expected for this price. Clean room. Nice staff. Central. If you looking for a nice budget hotel to spend one night or some days in Rovaniemi, this is the place to go ;). Check out the Arktikum Museum it is not far away and really good :).

Santa's Hostel Rudolf is sort of a hybrid between a hostel and a hotel. Each room has its private toilet/bathroom and there is also a small communal kitchen available down on the basement floor. The beds are quite comfortable and there's enough space available for two travelers. The ceiling of the room has a roof like appearance, which increases the... More

So came in and needed a place. Rudolf is the cheapest option. It says hostel, they mean hotel. Really nice room with own hot shower and toilet. Lovely! Close to centre. One minus: no reception. You have to go to santa Claus hotel to check in. I didn't know so found out in front of the hostel. Also breakfast is... More

Clean and nice hostel for reasonable price. It's about 500 meters from city center so everything is on walking distance. There's a nice small kitchen and dining area in downstairs. Room was quite hot (summer) but there was table fan and window was possible to open so it was ok. There's a free parking behind the hostel.

The hostel is excellent, accomodation is very comfy and very close to the city center, everything within walking distance. The only problem is that before you go there you must go to the hotel to do the check-in, and that is not fun if it is snowing a lot. And some of the other guests were a bit noisy during... More

This is not your typical hostel because the rooms (which as you would expect, is small), each with an ensuite bathroom (even smaller), are separate from each other. This is also reflected in the higher price charged than a typical hostel. There is no daily house keeping and you have to collect your keys from Hotel Santa Claus which is... More

Go get your key first from Santa's Hotel. Walking distance to the hostel wasn't bad, 600 meters uphill, no turns. Hostel is on the left in Koskikatu. Room was tidy and everything worked. We used the extra radiator to keep temp. nice and warm. Kitchen was also tidy, though we ate only outside. (Amazing restaurants btw!) Would recommend this. One... More

We booked this hostel, as most of the other places didn't have anything available for the time we needed that wasn't extremely expensive. We stayed for 3 nights and 4 days. This hostel was amazing because you had your own separate room! This was the first of its kind I've ever stayed in. 2 twin beds, desk, closet and cupboard... More

We booked a room for one night. The room wasn't so big for 3 people; there was a tv, wardrobe and the table. The bathroom was cleaned, also the sheets were cleaned. Good hostel to spend couple of nights and not really expensive.

We booked this hostel because most of the other accommodations are fully booked. This is not the traditional hostel where you share a room with a large number of strangers but one where you have your own room with your company - a plus for me! The room-wise, it's pretty dated although it is clean. You have to prepare your... More
