Welcome to our hostel

Located in the town of Pori, Hostel River is a cosy, peaceful and
inexpensive hostel by the beautiful river Kokemäenjoki. Although the
building itself is an old office building, protected by the National Board
of Antiquities, the interior has just been renovated and refurbished.

The hostel has 9 rooms that are suitable for 1-4 people, and 1 double room.
Bed linen and towels are included in the rates. The hostel has pleasant
communal areas, including a self-service kitchen with complimentary tea and
coffee, a living room with a large TV, and an internet-connected computer
and WiFi. We also have excellent meeting room facilities with all the
necessary equipment for up to 40 people. There are also free parking places
in front of the building and in the yard.

Hostel River is located in the area of Karjaranta, about 500 metres from
Kirjurinluoto park area where you will find an event stage, a children’s
play area, a beach, a miniature golf course, a cafe, etc. The hostel is
just 800 metres from the main theatre and 1 kilometre (0.6 miles) from the
