Not recommended: The hostel is merely a shack on a campsite without WiFi or a toilet. I was mostly alone in the room that seemed to be stuck in the '60s, it was quite lonely! The beds were way too hard, and the lack of a common room was just a little sad. Everything made creepy noises in the night so especially not recommended for those who have recently horror films! The staff was friendly though.

Old and uncomfortable beds, thin matraces,old building, no sheets. Fantastic camp landscape with rich greenery and fresh air. Hovewer for 15E per person per night its probably the only cheap choice around. Visit Lappenranta, it is beautifull!

It isn't hostel really. No bedclothes (or paid disposable paper bedclothes). No internet. Shower and WC are in the separate building.
