Go for the views and the location”

This hostel is hard to miss because it seemed to be the only hostel in the island. Very comfortable, and even if there is no one at the reception, they have systems in place to help you (esp. if you come after hours). There are lockers for your belongings if you want to check out early. Also, there are two areas for eating (the one upstairs seemed to be the place to make food, while the one downstairs had books and some snacks). There was free coffee and tea, as well as some Christmas wine when I stayed. The surrounding area is so beautiful, especially early in the morning. There is a grocery/market nearby and a few restaurants (both regular and upscale) for meals.

Great location, quiet and beautiful, convinient and lot of travel information

This is my second time staying in this hostel. It's on the island of Suomenlinna. You can walk around the fortress any time your like. It's very peaceful and beautiful when the tourists are gone. You can get all kinds of travel information in the hall of the hostel. A small supermarket nearby, easy to buy food and cook in the kitchen. Many free stuff in the fridge. I left almost an entire pizza when I left, hope someone enjoy it.

ヘルシンキに来たならまた泊まりたいホステル。”

市街までは船で移動することになるが、本数も多くフェリー乗り場やオールドマーケット、中央駅などともアクセスしやすい。 もっと安い宿も探せばあるが、個人的には下手にトラムやバスで30分かかる所に泊まるよりは良いと思う。 宿自体はとても落ち着いた雰囲気で、ちょっと日本の学生寮や山の研修センターといった趣。シャワーは一階二階両方にあり一階は鍵はかからないものの広くて使いやすい。徒歩1分の距離に値段は高いもののスーパーがあるので自炊をするのに島から出なくてもよい。 お客さんも場所柄か落ち着いた感じの人が多く話しやすかった。典型的なバックパッカー意外にも地元のカップルや家族連れなども宿泊しているようなので前述のような雰囲気になるのかなと思う。 他のレビューの通り朝や夜に人のいないスオメリンナを散策できるのはとても楽しい。 唯一悪い点を挙げると、玄関のオートロックのキーナンバーをメールで教わるのだけれど、送られてきた番号が間違っていて危うく締め出されるところだった。僕はレセプションに人がいる時間にチェックインしたので大丈夫だったが、後から来た男性は中に入れず電話で確認する羽目になったと言っていました。

泊まってみたくて。”

泊まってみたら8人部屋で私だけしかいなくて寂しかったです(笑)冬は閑散期らしいです。(春ですが) 他に二人ほどしかいなかったらしく、貸切状態で静かでした。 3月下旬でもマイナスでめちゃくちゃ寒いのですが暖房はあったかいし、シャワーは狭いけど熱いくらいまででます。 寂しいし安宿にしては安くないし泊まるほどでもなかったかな~と思いましたが、や朝方人のいないスオメンリンナを歩けたのは気分がよかったです!やっぱり朝と夕方では光の当たる方向も違うし、天気も違ったのでよかったです。 ちなみに朝も夕方も風が強くて寒かったけど、朝の方が足元がぐしゃぐしゃしてなくて歩きやすかったです。(-5℃~2℃の時期) スタッフのお兄さんがフレンドリーでした。問題なくレイトチェックインできるので、airb○b的な感覚でいいと思います。

雰囲気 清潔感 スタッフの対応

一人旅で滞在しました。ホステルへは、中心街から船を使って行かなきゃ行けないので 利便性を重視するのならおすすめできません。 世界遺産の島にある可愛らしいホステルなので のんびりと過ごすには最適。お家みたいに過ごせる。 近くにコンビニもあるし、共同エリアではWiFiも使えて 快適に過ごせました。 ドライヤーなどはなかった気がするので持参した方がいいかも。

キッチンにはフリーフードのパスタやコーヒーが常備されてます

スオメンリンナ要塞の島に滞在できるというのが特徴です。周りは静かだし、10秒歩けばスーパーもあって長く滞在するには最高でした。ただ、ヘルシンキからフェリーに乗らなければ行けないので、時間がない人だと大変かもです。私はフェリーは苦になりませんでした。夜中の1時くらいまで運航してますし、人もけっこう乗ってくるので安心でした。

男女混合のドミトリー宿泊。 色々な方が毎日のように入れ替わり、それほど不安もなく利用できました。 スタッフは親切でわからないことを聞くと丁寧に教えてくれて本当に助かりました。 キッチンなども使えるので食費の削減にも役立ちました。 冬はちょっときついかも知れませんが、夏は最高によい場所だと思います。

小さな島の静かなホステル”

静かで居心地がよい

ヘルシンキから船で15分の島のホステルでした。周りの環境が静かでとても気に入りました。冬だったので利用者が少なかったこともあるのか、ホステルも静かで、キッチンやシャワーも待つことなく利用することができました。 ヘルシンキから船を利用することになりますが、船は夜遅くまで出ているし、船着き場からホステルは近いので不便とは思いませんでした。1日交通チケットで船は利用できるので、交通費もさほど気になりませんでした。 私の場合は何もありませんでしたが、受付は24時間体制ではないのが少し不安でした。

Учтите, что хостел расположен на острове, поэтому к стоимости проживания добавьте еще цену билета на паром ( 5 евро за билет на 12 часов). И не забудьте записать расписание паромов. Сам хостел очень приятный, постояльцев будто и не было (конец октября). Чисто и тепло. Рядом есть маленький магазин.
