“Cheap location, friendly staff but rather noisy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

The Eurohostel is (for Helsinki) a cheap place to stay. The building and rooms are rather basic, but clean. Staff is young but very friendly and helpfull.
Rooms are basic too, shower and toilet outside. Men and women separate. Everything is clean, but I think in high season 2 toliets and 3 shower is not that much....
Every level has a kitchen too, rather well equipped.
Building is noisy, so I used my earplugs 2 out of 4 nights.
Tram 4 brings you to the city center or central train station within 10 minutes (2.80 euro).
From the airport you'll reach Eurohostel in 40 minutes (30 by bus 615 and 10 tram).

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from showers and toilets as far as possible.

I reserve a room for 3 (there are two options a choose for higher price). This hostel is a hostel that must be. WC and wash in the floor, kitchen is in the floor too. Also there is a sauna and internet (wifi) for extra money. There is a cafe in the 1st floor, you can take a breakfast there or make some meals (pizzas, pastas, etc.) with beer and sport shows.

Room Tip: This is a hostel, so WC and kitchen is in the floor. If you live far from them you have a better sle...

Ok, we arrived from Stockholm on Silja. It was over a 1km walk around the harbour. With my backpack on, it was a long way to go. If that might be an issue, taxi it, or take Viking line which docks only steps away. It was not super central. We had to walk all the was back to the harbour to even find a place to buy food. I dunno, there are very few places to eat nearby. Did not eat at the hotel.

Shared bathroom was so dirty. Never did it look clean. Since we stayed one night I waited till we got to Estonia to take a shower as I wouldn't have felt cleaner anyway. Feels much like an old prison, but this was by no means the worst place I've ever stayed.

It's one on a handful of affordable options in Helsinki. If you are used to hosteling this place is pretty standard.

For price, this is one of the most affordable and decent budget accommodation in Helsinki. Free Sauna in the morning makes it all worth while and although I slept like a log, the wooden bed structure has a lot to be desired. This is a great and exact area if you need the Viking Line Ferry Port or Silja Line. The public areas are ok and although Reception area is also nice, the staff need to be more friendly in customer service - check-in was very much hard work for the girls at Reception, no happy smiles and happy greetings. I would stay again purely for the price, but the staff need to up their game.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same. so it doesn't really matter. Higher the better I suppose.

I was one night at this hostel this week and I was very surprised by the high standard. I was clean, practic, simple and nice. The bathroom was outside the room but very close and it was modern and clean. I never met anybody in the bathroom and it felt as having a private one. The service was good and everyone very helpful. They had both restaurent and kitchen. It was close to the centre and I cant find anything to complain about.

Room Tip: The room are the same but take with you slippers and night cloths that you are comfortable with to g...

We stayed at this hostel three from 30 to 31 December 2012. We rarely live in such places, so do not immediately found a third bed (It was hidden under the bed). Bed linen and towels are clean but worn out. The rooms are small. The whole house is clean. On each floor there are showers and toilets for women and men in different parts of the corridor. Not very comfortable bathrooms: really no place to put and change cloves for the shower. There you can have budget breakfast.
