Summer Uni Hostel Valkkyla
Ranked #4 of 4 Specialty Lodging in Oulu
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I recently stayed in the Summer Uni Hostel Valkkyla in Oulu Finland.
The room was basic to say the least.
It had two single beds and a table for laptop.

The room had a draught from the windows and when it is -15 outside you will know all about it.
TV was mounted on the wall over one of the beds, so I don't know how a person could see it from that bed.
The room does not afford a person any privacy if sharing.

The kitchen was usable with cooker, microwave, fridge but very small with no room for a lot of shopping.

The bathroom did not seem to have any extractor for steam or else it did not work.

In my opinion it would be too small for two people, ok for one.
It did have free wired internet which was great, WiFi was rubbish.

Pros.
The building did have a laundry room which was free to use.
Gym + common room as well.
Pool room and sauna as well.
The bed was comfy even though it had no head board.

Cons.
approx. 2.5 km's from city centre
room not that big.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor if you can.
