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.

Green rating



In the hostel itself there is not much to do. A little more books and games or so would be great - would possibly cause more guests to spend time in the common spaces, and not watching a movie by themselves in the dorm. The breakfast is way too expensive for what one gets.
