    I found this to be a great hostel for my needs - great location relatively close to the train station, room was simple but clean, staff very friendly and helpful; continental breakfast available in the basement dining room.

    We stayed 2 nights in this hostel. It has good location (just 1 stop with underground line to the train station), our room was clean with comfortable beds and a bathroom. For 65€ per an expensive accommodation, in Helsinki case still one of the cheapest.
