Stadion Hostel is magnificently set in the Helsinki Olympic Stadium. The hostel has a joyful and relaxing atmosphere and because of the city centre location it is the perfect base from which to start exploring.
The hostel offers guests free Internet access, kitchen, TV room, luggage room, parking and a buffet-breakfast is available for an extra charge. You can buy public transportation cards, souvenirs and snacks at the reception area, which is open 24 hours.
As well as free tours of the Stadium, the Stadion Hostel is just a short walk from Linnanmäki Amusement Park which boasts a carousel built in 1896 and the thrilling wooden rollercoaster Vuoristorata. Also within walking distance are Sea Life Helsinki, Sonera Stadium, Finnish National Opera, Töölö Sports Hall, Finlandia Hall, Helsinki Swimming Stadium and the Ice Hall.
What travellers think
A good experience all in all; the only difficulty was finding the place, due to all manner of renovation and preparation for some event going on around the place.

Certainly the best socializing hostel in Helsinki, which isn't so much about hostels and socializing hostels. Kitchen is big but dark, messy and without window.
