Have a good night sleep aboard s/s Bore! The former steamship is now permanently anchored on the banks of the River Aura, situated in front of Forum Marinum Maritime Centre and within walking distance from Turku harbour and Turku castle.

Vom Hafen aus sehr schnell zu erreichen. Super, dass man Fahrräder ausleihen kann. Wir konnten sogar schon am Morgen in unser Zimmer und mussten nicht warten. Das war spitze, nach der anstrengenden Anreise. Die Hochbetten sind nichts für große Leute, da stößt man sich schnell den Kopf. Insgesamt hat mir das Hostel mit Schiffscharme sehr gut gefallen - besonders das Sonnendeck war schön.
