                  Hostel situated on an island - Suomenlinna. There're a lot of interesting places to see: differen museums, small cafes, lovely places for rest on the shore, in the evenings - beautiful sunsets. But, sure, you should also pay for the ferry - but it's just 4 euro both ways (to Helsinki). Rooms are very clean and nice, hot working shower! (not usual for hostels ;). One small inconvinience - evening ends very late, because Suomenlinna is a very wellknown place (a lot of tourists and inhabitants) and morning begins at 7 (in my case it was a tractor :)). But I still think it is really nice place to stay :)

                  I suppose it's better to add some fruits into the breakfast

                  I loved the location being in Suomenlinna - because its so beautiful and the best part of my trip to Helsinki. Although you have to take the ferry to island everyday, its not too bad because its very regular and inexpensive. The island is beautiful, and my whole family loved it, thankfully we had good weather I guess. The hostel is located very near the ferry terminal, so there was no problem there at all - very good.

                  Not enough bath areas. There is only one bath cubicle per toilet per gender per floor - meaning about 2 per gender.

                  Great place for those who are tired of city life. The hostel is located on the beautiful island that was once a fortress. The atmosphere of the last century and comfort. Nature, sea, rocks. We had a great weekend! The friendly staff is always ready to help.

                  Hostel is located on the beautiful island of Suomenlinna. This island is truly magnificent, very atmospheric. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, I haven't tried breakfast.

                  A comfortable, quiet hostel on the lovely unesco World Heritage Site of Suomenlinna Island Fortress. Always very clean, with nice beds and good wifi.

                  Suomenlinna Island is a fantastic place! Definitely worth visiting! And it's easily reachable from Helsinki.

                  Very spacious twin-room, with very good feeling. Interesting school-type building, and l love the location in Suomenlinna, fun!

                  I didnot know that I need to order the breakfast one day before ..

                  I liked the grace of the whole island. I was very relaxed. The people are wonderful.

                  Small private rooms, quiet. Good location, easy to find.

                  First of all, I'd like to point out location. Suomenlina is a wonderful wild place 15 minutes from Helsinki. It is very nice to live there. Don't be frightened by the island location - it is very easy to get there by ferry.

                  Location and price.

                  Thin walls. No vending machine with water. It would be great to have one taking into account that there is only one shop on the island that closes in the evening.

                  Location, price, cleanliness, information, accessibility, the fact that all the needs and possible problems of the client were taken under consideration, flexibility

                  1. The rooms were not divided by gender. 2. There were no regulations suggested to the rest of the clients as to what the appropriate behavior should be within the hostel premises, and especially in the shared rooms. Some of your clients do not have consideration for the others they share the room with, leaving their belongings at random, being extremely noisy after 23:00 and before 6:30, and so on.

                  For those who are no strangers to hostels this one could be a gem. Clean and comfortable. Great location : beautiful church and fortress with museums nearby. Coffee shops and eateries of all types are in abundance . 15 min by sea to Helsinki Market Square.
