Quiet, calm and cheap

by CristinaNeliel on 11 Sep 2016 (Solo Traveller)

This hostel is located on the island of Suomenlinna, near the docks. The ambient is extremely calm for such a touristic area, and the prices for night are OK. The rooms are what you expect for the price, with lots of people but that is not a problem. The only drawback is that the reception hours are not long and the breakfast must be booked 24h in advance but, otherwise, I'll totally recommend it.

Pleasantly surprised

I only booked here because it was the cheapest option I could find at short notice and I'm really glad it worked out that way. The ferry to Suomenlinna was easy to find from the train station. I was able to check in early and found the staff to be super helpful and friendly. It's a small hostel but it made it easy to meet people.

This hostel was fairly cheap. Uniquely located in a small island which is one of top tourist destination in Helsinki. The room and bathroom was clean. Don't worry with the access, as the boat ready to serve you till midnight.

Plus, you can take a nice walk on the island the next morning. The bed, the room, the shower/toilet, they're all fine. The staff was also quite helpful. One minus point: the internet speed (from ...

Good hostel in an unusual location

by TheDanHB on 12 Nov 2015 (Solo Traveller)

Spent a good night staying here. Very easy to get to and from using the ferry from the market place. Hostel was simple, but clean, bright, with friendly staff and good shared dorm room. Big communal space to relax / for breakfast. Perfect to start from if you are wanting a tour of this fortress island, I had a very atmospheric walk around it from 8am in the mist before anyone else seemed to be up.
