Helsinki can be an expensive city and this hostel came in cheaper than most of the other options. But overall, despite nothing being terribly wrong with Eurohostel, it was a bit average. Helsinki is a fun, friendly, design conscious city... this hostel is missing a trick by not doing more to reflect all these elements!
* Safe and secure
* Right next to the #4 tram stop
* Easy 5 min walk to Viking Line ferry terminal
* Free sauna before 9:30am (but why charge in the evening?)
* Functioned well (everything seemed to work)
* €5 a day for WiFi! (Really? This is complimentary in so many places these days - do you really need to charge THAT much)
* Staff were perfectly fine - but lacked the passion and willingness to volunteer local tips that makes staying in other hostels such fun
* Missing the friendly atmosphere and other usual opportunities/activities to meet fellow travellers
