"I’ve stayed in my fair share of hostels across Europe and this is far and away the best I’ve been to yet. Spacious dorm, relaxed common area, plentiful bathrooms, and a very helpful, friendly staff as well. It’s clean and quiet but centrally located so that bars, restaurants, sights, shops, and public transportation are all just out the front door. Of course, if you prefer to walk, it’s a great central point for all destinations around the main city. I was able to see and do about a million things during my short 2.5 day stay in Helsinki thanks to tips from the lovely staff. I’d absolutely stay here again if and when I find myself back in Finland."

Best hostel I've ever stayed at!

"I have stayed in lots of hostels, across three different continents and this is definitely the best one. It's clean, homely and super safe. It's very close to everything in Helsinki. I would strongly recommend people to stay here. Also, my brother stayed here too and it was his first time ever in a hostel and he said he would come back to it."

"One of the few and best hostel in Helsinki. Has lot of services. Clean rooms , washrooms and kitchen. Location is perfect. 500 m from the railway station. Stayed there for one night. No late night restriction. They give you the code and the electronic card for room access and guide you to best tourist activities."
