Located on a group of islands off the coast of Helsinki, Suomenlinna is a maritime fortress and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A ferry-crossing from the Market Square to Suomenlinna takes just 15 minutes and costs no more than other public transport tickets. Ferries operate from early morning until 2 a.m. Our hostel is just a stone’s throw from the main pier.

In addition to accommodation, we offer meals and services for meetings and events. If you are looking for something other than just an ordinary city hostel, Hostel Suomenlinna is an ideal choice for you. Formerly a primary school, our hostel is equipped with modern conveniences, Wi-Fi and a computer for guest use.

By using the services of Hostel Suomenlinna you will support the Finnish youth work, as the main purpose of the national Youth Centres is to support the work of teachers and trainers.
