As I was alone in the hostel, the owner propose me to take a cottage at the price of 38€ rather than 60€ per night. I have to pay an extra of 12€ for cleaning. No discount for FUAJ member.

Would suggest you have shared areas cleaned more regularly and upgrade the bathroom facilities.

First of all this is by far the most horrible hostel I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in a lot of hostels around the world. How this hostel can be part of HI-hostels is beyond my imagination. The owner was extremely rude (and possible drunk)! Rent of old worn linen and a towel was 12 eur per person per night! The hostel itself was run down, sad, filthy. Big open windows in showers with no curtains! Filthy bathroom, horrible kitchen. All doors could barely close or lock. Hughly overpriced!

I was given one of the small log cabins that are on the site instead of a bed in the hostel.This was perfect for my needs and represented excellent value for money. I would have no hesitation in using this facility again.on a future visit to Kemijarvi.

Location is too hidden, difficult to reach. The hostel charged me 4 bed sheets and linens for 12euros each without any information before. So it is not fair and too expensive. The room rate for 4 is only 79.5 euros and the linens charge is about 48 euros. The total charge is 127.5 euros . It is actually more expensive than a 3 star hotel. And the room has no private bathroom and the condition is only fair.
