Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Finnhostel Joensuu is an apartment hostel near the town centre and, because of its quiet location, ideal for families with children. The market place is just 1 kilometre (0.6 miles) away and the beautiful Linnunlahti area and a beach are in the vicinity.

Every apartment has a bathroom and a fully-equipped kitchen, internet access and TV, which ensure you feel at home even during a longer stay. There is a playground for children in the hostel backyard, and you can borrow books, toys and plays from the bookshelf downstairs.

Our rates include breakfast, bed linen and towels. Lunch and dinner for groups must be ordered in advance. We have free parking in the backyard for cars, buses can be parked on the street. The reception is open every day 15.00-20.00hrs.

Joensuu is a compact town where every place can be reached by bike. The hostel has bikes to rent. The lake scenery of Pyhäselkä is a perfect place to enjoy the nature and river Pielisjoki can be admired, for example, from a canoe. In July, Ilosaarirock festival fills the town with music enthusiasts. The great national landscape of Koli is 70 kilometres (45 miles) away, and you can order a minibus taxi to collect you from the hostel.

In the town you can visit, among other places, the art museum and Taitokortteli, a handicraft and culture quarter, where all kinds of shops selling handicrafts entice shoppers in an old wooden house milieu. There are also many good cafes to tickle your palate. Ask the reception staff for recommendations!

Sehr freundliches Personal. Parkplaetze direkt hinter dem Haus vorhanden. Fruehstueck wird auch serviert. Die Zimmer sind apartmentartig und deshalb auch etwas teurer. 40 Euro pro Nacht sind aber okay. Zimmer verfuegen ueber Fernseh und Kuehlschrank. Sogar eine komplett ausgestattete Kueche ist vorhanden. Sehr saubere sanitaere Anlagen. Sehr empfehlenswerte Unterkunft.

Sehr gut gelegen um in die Stadt, aber auch in die Natur zu kommen. Zu Fuss. Apartmentartig angelegt. 2 DZ mit gemeinsamer Küche, Dusche und WC. WC/Dusche sehr renovierungsbedürftig. Da muss nachgebessertwerden!
