Very nice place to just relax or do some skiing like the Finns do. Breakfast and lunch buffet is pretty worth the money at €11. Some of the staff was very personable. The only thing I had to complain about is the bins in toilets were not cleared throughout my five nights of stay and probably the short placement of the basin (I had a bad back so if you have a similar problem, please take note). Overall, it was a nice stay!

The hostel is one building in the Finnish Nordic Skiing facility at Kiilopaa. There are several other types of accommodation, cottages, lodges, a small hotel. The room that I stayed in contained two sets of bunk beds. It was very comfortable. The reception and restaurant staff were first class and spoke fluent English. The food was very good and not expensive. I ate very well for a week. I spent the week eating well and getting lots of exercise. The area is stunning.

El bus te deja en la puerta. El check-in se hace donde el restaurante y la tienda. Hay que llevar comida, porque el súper es muy limitado. Desde ahí salen muchas excursiones y muy bien señalizadas. Bicis de paseo (no para rutas) gratuitas para clientes. En el precio entran dos tipos de saunas: la eléctrica junto a las duchas generales y la de humo, junto a un río en el que bañarse después (no disponible todos los días, en recepción te dan una pulsera para llevarla durante su uso).

Excellent but note 2 things 1 if you want a meal in the restaurant it shuts at 7pm - if you have arrived from Norway and your watch says 6.15pm - the restaurant is closed. 2 the nearest place to buy food is 18km away. Many well posted walks and nice sauna totally recommend.
