This was one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed at in all my travels and you can't find a more unique location in Helsinki with a hostel. Suomenlinna is a really interesting gem in Helsinki and being able to stay there over night is brilliant.
The hostel has clean rooms and bathrooms which is really kind of rare for hostels to have both.
The price is really good for Helsinki which is quite an expensive city over all.
You get to take a ferry to you your hostel from the city centre which in itself is a neat experience.
I recommend purchasing a 24 hr (or more) transportation pass which also covers the ferry trip fares, this way you can go back and forth to the city as much as you want in a day. The 24 hr pass is 8 euros which if you use it all over the city for trams, buses and the ferry is a good deal. you can buy the passes at the visitor centre next to the harbour where you catch the Suomemlinna ferry.
I will definitely stay at Hostel Suomenlinna any time I'm in Helsinki
