Eurohostel

The hostel is well equipped and the staff were extremely helpful. Rooms are basic, but clean and very warm in winter. The toilets left a lot to be desired at times.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The hostel is well equipped and the staff were extremely helpful. Rooms are basic, but clean and very warm in winter. The toilets left a lot to be desired at times. This was mostly down to customers staying in the hostel, but the wash basins were permanently blocked and therefore filled to the brim. Even when cleaned, the same thing happened again. I wouldn't stay in this hostel again, simply because I think my standards have gone up as I have got older! However, if you are looking for a fairly central, well equipped and cheap place to stay, it has plenty to offer.

We stayed here two nights and our experience on both nights was markedly different. The first night we were on the third floor, in a double room, with basic facilities: shelves, wardrobe, lamp on each of the two single beds, curtains on the windows, a desk and two chairs. Nice for a hostel. however I found a small blood stain on the pillow which annoyed me a bit - though admittedly it was old and not fresh, and it had been washed since - it was dried in. The hotel do provide everyone with a fresh pillow case, which was clean, and sheets which were also clean, so I have no real concerns on the hygiene front. However we were awoken with construction works at 8am, and noise generally is a problem with the walls quite thin. You might say most hostels are like that anyway and I admit that hostels are not really a place to bed-down for a good nights rest.

The breakfast was not included in the price, at 7 Euro each it's very expensive, and the local supermarket, two tram-stops away was a better option for us. Also service in the restaurant which annexes the hostel was slow for dinner and we left unattended after waiting 10 minutes (though admittedly there was a large group in)

The second night was completely different, the private room was on the sixth floor and the condition would rival any budget hotel. It was probably the best room we stayed in all week (we interrailed across Finland) and we were really surprised.

Also look out for the kitchen facilities which are really good, really nice kitchen, lovely bright colours and big tv hanging from the roof, a real gathering point. Overall, this hostel is grand - would recommend it. (ps. location is excellent, brilliant, romantic view over harbour across the road)

Great location. I've stayed in far better hostels around the world but it certainly felt safe and secure. I think the price was very high for a hostel but then that is probably just Europe for you!
My room was basic but very clean but the bathrooms were really under par and could have been much cleaner - perhaps all one can expect when sharing facilities.
I gave up trying to use the kitchen - no kettle, hotplates that didn't seem to work, no cups or mugs available.
Sauna is a great facility - enjoyed starting the day with one.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Me and my wife stayed only one night in Eurohostel. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to check all the hostel facilities because we were tired after long journey and went to bed early. We had a twin room (Eurohostel room) which was very nice. There was enough space, the beds were easily to put together and everything was very clean and comfortable. The hostel staff was very friendly and helpful. All in all the Eurohostel left very good impression to us and I can recommend it to all who want to spend few days in Helsinki without paying too much for accommodation.
