“Way to poor for the price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Despite the fact that Finland is a quite expensive country to visit, 51 euro for a single room is too much at this hotel for what you get. A small little room with not even the sheets being put on the duvet (hostel or not), shared bathroom - not very clean. A shared kitchen, that is so dirty and with not even a cup or a plate to use. The wifi is not working in the rooms and some of the staff was rude when asking about the wifi. The breakfast is ok and the scenery quite nice. For a one night stay its ok, but otherwise not.

We stayed overnight with stagnight coupe. Rooms were clean and big enough for accomadate 4 guys comfortably. The gasthaus crew was really friendly and breakfast was good bang for buck. If you are looking for a cheap but still cosy place to stay, wheter for business or leisure, i can recommend this place. When the city center hotels are full, this place might have rooms available. And it beats omenahotelli 100-0!

This hostel is in a great location and accessible by bus 25, but has some real issues. I arrived with a reservation at 7.45 pm at the end of August to find the whole place locked and a sign on the door saying it closes at 9pm and giving a number to ring. A security person arrived and checked me and another waiting person in and gave us our keys. This service cost an extra 20 Euros (plus VAT). When I made my reservation some weeks before I had advised that I would not be arriving until after 7pm.

There are small clean kitchens on both floors with microwave, hotplates and an electric kettle but absolutely no cutlery or crockery. Most lights in the mens' bathroom did not work. The hot water was set at lukewarm, the soap dispenser in the shower was broken. The rooms are very prison cell-like and the beds to match. I'd say it was the worst mattress I have slept on in ten years of travelling - not because it was worn out but because it was so cheaply made.

On the up-side the adequate breakfast was included in the price (as is usual) and the place was clean. The staff were chilly and disinterested, except for one young woman who did all the morning kitchen work (she was happy for me to borrow some cutlery and crockery for following nights). In this and other respects the place has gone downhill since two years ago. It is no cheaper than far better budget hotels in the city. Tip - bring your own eating equipment, arrive early and complain about the beds.

Room Tip: I suspect all rooms are the same. It is a place that appeals to people with their own vehicles - mos...
