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.

The hostel is clean&quiet and ideal for people who want to spend their time away from the noise and busyness from the city. The island looks abandoned at night, like in one of those horror movies. Keep in mind that there is no 24h service at this hostel so when you arrive late there is nobody to help you. It was a nice experience but personally i found it more practical to stay in the city where everything is near; shops, restaurants, public transport,..
