I have never stayed in a hostel before, but after reading all the reviews I booked here. Was glad I did. I was travelling alone but chose a private room. It had a single bed and then a bunk bed. Perfect if there were more than myself. Desk and closet if needed. Free wifi was great. Wish I could remember... More

Well situated, clean and comfortable place to sleep by low price. Hostel is near the Kokemaki River with such a beautiful view. You can walk on the River boulevard. 1 km to the market place and marketing Hall.

Had a private room in the hostel which was a change from dormitories elsewhere. A huge room and on arrival I got to choose which room I slept in. Good kitchen and a sauna upstairs which was a nice touch. Not far to walk from the hostel to the station or the town centre.

Most hotels in Pori are in the city center. Hostel River is a bit out of the way, so its best to have a car or be willing to walk a few hundred meters. The hostel is in an old wooden building and is generally really comfortable. It has rooms with lots of space and lots of storage. Most rooms... More

Clean, cosy atmosphere, will be back! Everything was good. Different from boring chain hotel rooms. Will use this hostel next time while in Pori, too! If you want to you can warm up the upstairs sauna yourself.

During my stay in Finland during April 2013 I travelled all around the country and Hostel River was by far the best place I stayed in. Hotels and 'modern' hostels didn't even come close. The owners were extremely hospitable, the place has a lovely homely feel and the breakfast is delicious. Each room has its own personal touch and it... More

We arrived in a very late evening,Hostel was already closed, we called the number provided on the door. The owner without any problems arrived to check us in, even we did not have reservation. Room was clean, in general hostel was clean... More
