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

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
