“For an Affordable and Attractive Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

A great place to stay in Helsinki without pinching your pocket is the Dommus Academia hostel. The place has the dual advantage of being a hotel as well as a small apartment. The bathrooms are attached. The rooms are furnished decently and contain all the equipment, gadgets and amenities required for a comfortable stay. The hostel boasts of a swimming pool also. The shopping center is near by. The train station is also near by. The hostel has an area that guests can share, which is a veritable feast for guests of all ages. There are board games and TV and computers and a reading area consisting of many books. The staff is very accommodative as are the neighbors as you can borrow things from them just as you do back home. The hostel is excellent for a family to stay together, especially if you have children, and enjoy the benefits at an attractive and affordable price.

Domus Akademica is well located in central Helsinki. Staff are very helpful and accommodating, and the rooms are very clean, with good beds, attached bath and a small kitchenette. The use of the swimming pool and sauna is a bonus, though the men's timing is a bit late in the morning. My stay was very short, and this was an excellent base. If I return with family, I will aim to stay here again.

Room Tip: New rooms are Euro 3 extra, seems worth it.

Great value hostel (£25 or less) in an expensive city. Rooms were spacious (2 - 4 beds) with their own oven, hob, fridge and freezer which is great (some rooms have pans but you can borrow from the downstairs kitchen). The biggest bonus of this hostel is that it has a sauna and pool if you can get up early enough (only available between 7am and 9:30ish am), even some of the big hotels dont have a pool. The common room had comfy chairs, free computers, board games, books, TV. I would avoid the overpriced breakfast. The location of the hostel is great, right near to Kampi shopping center and only a 10 -15mins walk from the train station. Our top floor room even had a (slight) sea view!

Room Tip: Tip: the lift only stops between floors (so you have to go up or down half a flight) so bear that in...
