    Hinta-laatusuhde oli kohdallaan. Sijainyi hyvä, palvelut kävelymatkan päässä.

    Несоответствие цены качеству.

    Ночевали семьёй одну ночь. Удобно расположен. Чисто. Есть небольшая кухня, можно приготовить еду, но на кухне не было горячей воды. Больших замечаний нет, но на наш взгляд несоответствие цены качеству.

    Mukava rauhallinen sijainti.

    Henkilökunta erittäin ystävällistä. Sisäänkirjautuminen nopea. Yleisissä tiloissa kaikki tarpeellinen. Erittäin siisti. Kaupunkiin lyhyt matka, seutu rauhallinen.

    Nuorelle kansainväliselle opiskelijalle sopiva

    Ystävällinen ja reipas henkilökunta. Opiskelijoiden suuri määrä vaikutti viihtyvyyttä laskevasti. Huoneissa ja wc/kylpyhuoneissa tulisi olla koukkuja tms. pyyhkeille, vaatteille. Sekä myös peilit. Suihkuverhot olisi myös kätevä olla, jottei roiski joka paikkaan. Pöytää ei ollut huoneessa, ei vaatenaulakkoa, ei henkareita.

    Good to sleep, but not much more.

    The hostel was in a process of a refurbishement. The toilets and showers were newly made but not yet quite finished. Our room was ok even though a bit small. We didn't use the public room or the kitchen. These rooms weren't really inviting. Our reservation wasn't known at our check-in due to a defective smartphone. If there would have been noone there at that moment, I don't know wheter we could have checked-in or not. There are other ways to stay up to date for bookings even if the phone is broken. Over all it was ok. But we wouldn't have to spend more than the nights in this hostel.
