There was plenty of space in the room for a single person. It was easy walking distance to wherever I wanted to go.
The location given for the hostel was actually across the street and up stairs which were difficult to navigate with a suitcase. To then have to wander around trying to find the reception area was annoying. The location of reception needs to be accurate on the booking. The shower water wet the entire bathroom, which meant you were unable to take clothes inside the bathroom with you.
The kidness and the good services of the reception staff
there were no plates (pots etc.) or other materials for cooking
The location is amazing and the beds comfortable.
The kitchen facilities are misrepresented. Simple essentials such as mugs and a kettle should be provided. Wifi is only available in the main reception so if you are in a different block it means poor access.
wifi only available in the main reception and limited IP which made connecting almost impossible
The best thing was the location: near the city center and close public transport. With respect to other accommodations in Helsinki it was relatively cheap. In addition to this you can save money cooking your meals at home or making some sandwiches. Another good aspect was the silence in our building: it almost felt like we were the only ones there! Like in many other hostels there is also a common room with a kitchen from which you can take what is missing in your room kitchen (including stuff like salt, sugar that would be a shame to buy for just a couple of meals). Guests before leaving often put the food that did not eat there and it's free for you to take.
the kitchen in the room has very limited facilities. ONE pan, TWO dishes, TWO knives and forks, TWO glasses and that's all. You can take what you need from the common kitchen if you bring it back clean but how can you do that if they do not provide a sponge nor dish soap? The hostel is located in 4 different buildings so you have to go outside and cross the road for anything you need! The swimming pool and the sauna have timetables that are way to strict to be useful and have different times for men and women. The wi-fi is only in the common room and i couldn't connect because (i think) there were too many people on-line. Internet in the room is only via cable so if you have a tablet pc forget it.
Location is good and stuff was friendly and helpful.
The hostel is like a student house where you will hear all of your neighbors. The rooms a very simple and boring, it is not the best choice if you want a bit to enjoy your stay.
Location - near to all the sights and no need to use transport!!! If you have a limited budget then this is the place otherwise a hotel!!!!
Very basic indeed. Not much in the way of a kitchen but the bathroom was excellent. Reception always busy and therefore I did not ask any questions because of the waiting!!!!
Great location close to sea and city center. Simple but clean.
No kitchen accesories, glasses, mugs, plates and other in the room and poor selection of it in main "kitchen" at reception in the other bulding.
The staff at the front desk were very friendly, accommodating and willing to help with whatever inquiries were brought to their attention. Good location, close to two main shopping centres.
The room smelt a bit strange upon first entering. The room itself was very large, but the bed extremely small and stiff. Was not cleaned at all my entire stay there, aside from once or twice when the garbage was emptied but the bed was not made. The room was EXTREMELY warm at night, which made sleeping quite difficult. The most inconvenient issue was that wifi is not available in rooms and if you are staying in another building, it is necessary to walk to the main building to use the hostels wifi, as internet connection is only available by cord if you have brought a laptop.
The beach not so far :)
Location, staff was good
When we arrived the room was very dirty. The beds were really uncomfortable. The sink was clogged and there was bad smell from the toilet. In the shower there were a lot of dirty spots. It was like the room hadn´t been properly cleaned for ages! There was dirt everywhere, behind the beds, on the stove, on the walls, inside the electricity plugs etc. It would be a nice room if it was cleaned, they would change the beds and make it a bit more charming with photos on the walls etc.
Excellent location -convenient to public transport Helpful, friendly and patient staff. Sauna
Poor ventilation in the room.The window did not open very far. It was very difficult to cool the room down when temperature was above 25 C. Although our room had a kitchenette and fridge,no cups, crockery,cutlery or cooking utensils were provided. The common kitchen did not have enough items to borrow,so we had to eat out more than we wanted..
Not to far from the citycenter + Metro,- busstation nearby. Helpful staff, although only available several hours a day in this separate part of the Hostel-compound (24h-service in another part of the hostel). Spacious room with a balcony. Good refrigerator. Warm shower. (Cabled) internet.
- Several quite serious maintenance problems which couldn't be solved during the weekend. - Two internet-sockets of which one lead to a payed one with only information in Finnish.
Location Price Staff Quiet Staff spoke fairly good English
Very poor cooling and air conditioning in hot weather Room was not very clean Basic things like one towel only, pay for additional towel, in hot weather is not very good Although most staff was good one or two need customer service experience...they would simply state company policy without giving any options.
Location and service is good.
But beware of bed mattress. It stink!
Good value for money compared to other places in helsinki. Close to a good supermarket and tram line straight into centre. Nice to have some kitchen facilities
Room was very hot at night, which made it difficult to sleep. Also no shower gel which we didn't discover until late at night on our first night.
good location at the center of the city; spacious room
no wifi at the room; should have wifi at least at each building;
They don't give you any kitchen outil, so you are forced to buy them. They don't give you extra beds, paying or not. The matresses and beds are old and not confortable. The kitchen is really small.
Big clean room
It was hot as hell, can't sleep at night. No WiFi. No soap, shampoo, one towel - need to pay for another one.
Rubbish do separate for recycle that is good. Plenty space.
No free wifi in the room. The outside light of door way doesn't work properly,it often happen in the dark when you try to open the door. No kettle but there is a cooker.
the hotel was great for me while I was on a budget.
the room was dirty but that was fine as it was also great value for money. also I am struggling to book again as there are no rooms available for me.
The place was near the city centre and was good for the money. I'd recommend it for that although City Toki was much better and even Omena is better.
The rooms look really poor although they were clean. No internet WiFi, nor TV (doesn't really matter). We had to ask for the kitchen items and the check in was not the best.
share kitchen can let people use many things to cook and other traveler will put the remainder(food, sauce,salt,oil etc) for another people who need to use. I really like this part of the hostel
Conveniently located near Kamppi Metro station and bus station. Very close to the Kamppi shopping center, Regional bus terminal and tram stop. Variety of restaurants and other outlets are near by. Central railway station is 05 mins walk. Peaceful and calm atmosphere. Secure access. Room area was spacious.
Fan was missing. Computer network cable was not included but could be rented. Two pin electric jack was not included but could be rented. Balcony door could not open wide. Washroom soap & shampoo was missing.
It was nice to have a big private bathroom. Quiet neighbourhood was good too.
