    Decent (if expensive) Hostel


    Helsinki University's School of Economics transforms its dormitories during the summer months into a hostel. Run under IYHF auspices, the place has excellent services, to include swimming pool, sauna, and wi-fi. I booked a single room for 57 Euros a night (A hostel membership card will score you a whopping EUR 2.50 discount). The room itself was quite large, if spartan and dusty. My room was overlooking a busy street, so street noise might be a problem for some. The window shade was stuck in the "down" position, but this was just as well, since it kept the streaming sun out during the relatively warm days. One plus was the available laundry -- unlimited number of loads for 5 Euros, including soap. I paid an extra EUR 6.50 for the breakfast in the downstairs cafeteria -- handy but not worth the price. A grocery store across the street is open long hours and can provide all of your breakfasst requirements.

    Unique Quality: - Private rooms with refrigerator and stove
    - Wifi in common areas and some rooms
    - Laundry available on site
    - Open June - August only

    Directions: Take Tram 3T to Kauppakorkeakoulu. Walk straight as the tram heads off to the right. Take the first left, then turn right at the end of the road. Hostel will be on your left.
