Welcome to our hostel

Located in Punkaharju, beside Lake Saimaa, the largest lake in Finland, Hostel Mannila is housed in an old farm building with a century of history behind it. Our peaceful hostel offers excellent services on clean premises with a home-like atmosphere. During your stay, you will be looked after by three generations of our family.

Also, customers have access to a free Wi-Fi connection. The public premises boast a room with fireplace and a barbecue area. Why not hire one of our
rowing or pedal boats and enjoy the scenic surroundings from the lake or dive into the clear water for a refreshing swim?

Visitors also have the opportunity to participate in a rowing trip on a traditional longboat. The stables can be found just a stone’s throw away from our hostel. In winter, a ski trail runs right past the hostel building, while in summer you can savour the same scenery on foot, along the hiking routes. And on Midsummer’s Eve, we light a bonfire on the lakeside to mark the occasion.

Hostel Mannila is only three kilometres from the Punkaharju ridge, known for its spectacular scenery. We also lie within easy reach of Finnish Forest Museum Lusto and the mediaeval castle Olavinlinna, in Savonlinna. Hostel Mannila´s neighbour farm has a petting zoo.

Das Personla war super feundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir konnten Räder ausleihen, und ein Mitarbeiter hat uns sogar zum Zug gebracht am Abreisetag. Das Essen ist der Hammer, die Sauna auch, der See ist wunderschön, alles war supertoll! Die Umgebung ist so wunderschön. Savonlinna kann man sich ansehen oder mit dem Rad ins Naturschutzgebiet radeln.
