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

Remember pick up keycards from hotel Santa Claus. Free parking. CRT television sets! Basic beds. You have to make your own bed because room service leaves sheets etc on a pile. Toilet and shower are basic. Mini kitchen is great. It has microwave, electric kettle, coffee maker, fridge, electric cook top and kitchen sink.

Somewhere to sleep. Its not a very pleasant place. Its old, everything's a bit run down, a bit stained and a bit dusty in places. Booked a cheap night here just on the way over from Sweden on a road trip. Although the room was a good size, I really wouldn't have liked to stay any longer. Spend a bit... More

It was a bit far away from the train station and town centre. Visitors should aware that there was no service counter in the hostel. All visitors should go to hotel Santa Claus in the town to check-in and get the key card. It was not convenient. Basically, the room was clean and it was acceptable. If you don't mind... More

Excellent location - in center of old city with museum, old factories and shopping /service center in walking distance (10 min to info center, 5 min to museum Arktikum [and others] with my kid). For people following the nature this distance is really nothing. The hotel (hostel) do have everything a family can need. We did make some brasil spargetti... More

Room was clean and adeqaute although there was a strong draft coming through the window, not so pleasant at -15 degrees. Kitchen did not appear to be cleaned once in four nights and was rather unhygenic and dirty (microwave smelt and there was hair in the dish scrubbing brush).

Stayed here a couple of nights ago. Rovaneimi unexpectedly warm -,no need for any of the heavy, cold weather clothes we had bought. Check in at the Santa Hotel, easily found in the centre of town, where helpful receptionists book you in and direct you to the hostel a 10 minute stroll away. It's basically an ex hotel but they...

I decided to visit the Polar Circle. It was awesome but there were about minus 27 degrees. It was the first time in my life when I thought that I will be frozen, haha.
