This hostel is part located a quite isolated and nice location at a door of Urho Kekosen National Park (a.k.a. UKK). However it is well desersed by busses. It is very convenient if you plan to go for multiday a ski tour or a hike in national park. Employees are nice and helpful. Hostel kitchen is quite small. There a possibility to leave some luggage in main building (where reception is) during your tour.

Näinä aikoina kiinnittäisin siivoukseen entistä enemmän huomiota. Keittiöstä astiapyyhe pois, paperia sinne tuli kun oyysin, käsidesiä myös hostellin tiloihin ja saippuaa pumppupullossa keittiöön. Oppaat mukavia, muu henkilökunta voisi hymyillä vähä enempi aika totista porukkaa.. Kiilopää on Ihana paikka luonnonkeskellä.
