This place looks like a homeless shelter or a refugee camp. The athmosphere is hostile, there are few real backpackers to chat with, and overall it's dirty and noisy from cooking smelly food and playing music late at night.

Terrible experience. The staff were incredibly rude and unhelpful when we asked any question. It was really expensive the most expensive of our trip and the worst accommodation. The bathrooms are budget and the rooms over filed.

Very good price per night! Hostel is far enough from center. Amusement park Linnunmiaki in 10 minutes walking. There are convenient kitchen here. Showers is not bad. Supermarket Alepa is in the first floor of the hostels building. If you are ready for simple conditions - this hostel for you!

The hostel itself was ok but we were very shocked to see that there were almost only immigrants/refugees staying there, all men who could not help but stare at all our moves. I was glad, as a female, to be there with male friends even though in the end they did nothing more than staring.

I know that there is refugee crisis in Europe but I still prefer not to sleep in a reception centre. Place was full of smoke because of 30 Arabian men cooking. I am also fine of having men around in a hostel but when they are staring at you like a big peace of meat.

It was a coincidence that I ended up at this hostel. I had booked an apartment much more expensive on my arrival and was disappointed. I had to find another one in less than one hour. It was the best decision I've made. It is a very well organized place where one can cook and meet people from different background...

I stayed in one of the dorms for one night. The bed and the room was okay. The linen was included in the price. I got a locker and the lock (using card) for putting my stuff for free. The shower room, however, was too small for me. The kitchen, dining room and living room were alright and quite spacious....
