typical hi hostel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 24, 2007

stayed in this hostel for 4 nights in Summer 2006 a very nice place to stay!it's clean and very good for socializing in the kitchen(someone has defined it too crowded,but i enjoy it!)and in the dining room, it's quite central(about 20 min. on foot to city centre) and well connected with public transports.moreover i fell in love with the wonderful helsinki sky from the little hill beside the hostel...and what can i say about the nature around and the incredible meetings with rabbits,foxes and squirrels ??there the stadium area too,in which you can see some soccer matchs!
it's due to say that i slept in a double room and probably dormitories weren't confortable as the's a big hostel,of course.even good for family or older people.
staff was really friendly and kind.
I wouldn't have a problem with staying there again

Unique Quality: although a bit of a hike from town on foot,the location is perfect to relax your self and breath nature.

Directions: stadion

A Hostel in a Stadium?

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 10, 2004

Stadion Hostel was the first youth hostel I've ever stayed in on my own. And after staying there, I decided that "hostelling" is my new favorite hobby...
Nothing about this place was amazing or anything, but it was a great experience. There was a common room where everyone was watching the Olympics (interesting since we were in the Olympic stadium) on TV late into the night, everyone cheering for his own country. In the dorm style room where I stayed, I met all these girls, some from Germany, one from Columbia, etc, and ended up spending the day with one of them. Everyone was friendly and I had no trouble sleeping. Showers are communal (by gender) if you care about that, and they don't give you towels when you rent your linens.. but someone was willing to share. I'm definitely bringing sheets and towels with me from now on, in any case...

Unique Quality: The hostel is in the freakin stadium building... you have to walk halfway around the building to find the entrance. It's under the Olympic Tower, so if you want to go up in the tower when you wake up in the morning.. it's right there. I didn't do it though.

Have you ever slept in a stadium?

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 27, 2004

This hostel is made under the tiers of the Olympic stadium of helsinki and, for this reason, it is a nice and unusual experience.
It is a bit far from the center but you can catch a tram (3B or 7B) that in 5 minutes will bring you to the railway station or, if you want you can walk for 15-20 minutes.
The price is about 15 € per night in a room with 8-9 beds.
The staff is kind.

Unique Quality: In the Olympic stadium!

Nice hostel , odd people

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 20, 2004

Hostel rather unusually built into the side of the Olympic stadium , nice secure car park for the Silver Whore and decent sized dorms.
However the used to refuse to let us have a mixed dorm even when the place was empty , the breakfast was a rip off at 5 Euro's and some of the people could only be described as rather odd ( See warnings ) . Also had a tendancy to be full of bloody schoolkids.

Unique Quality: The 2 a.m curfew - why?????????????????
Various Olympic displays that looked like they'd been pinched from the museum. Really large poster of KISS in our room.

Arrived late at night, was booked into my single room with great speed and efficiency. Also there was plenty of hot water available for a shower to relax those tired muscles after the long trip from UK. The young lady on the front desk was even kind enough to arange for a taxi the following day to pick me up and take me onwards on my trip

Unique Quality: Clean Rooms
Lots of Hot Water
Unique building
Close to Centre
Cheap and Comfortable

Olympic Stadium Hostel

by written on February 1, 2003

The hostel is in the Olympic Stadium, where the Olympics were held in 1952. The location of the hostel in quite good, only 2.5 km from the city centre, which is only a few minutes by tram or bus.

Unique Quality: Since it is located in the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Tower is right next door. The hostel also has a sauna in connection with the swimming stadium. Internet facilities are also present.

Directions: You can take trams 7A, 3T, 4, and 10, bus #69 from the busstation, or from the airport Finnair bus or local bus #617, which is only going once an hour though!

Good and unique hostel for all back packers

by written on January 29, 2003

This is unforgetable place to sleep, a hostel in Stadion of Helsinki.
Stadion hostel is located in the unique Olympic stadium building in the heart of Helsinki. Due to its central location and good public transport system you can spend your time in Helsinki without wasting hours in long distance travel.

Unique Quality: The sights and attractions of the capital are all close by. Amusement park Linnanmäki, the opera house, Finlandia Hall, the Parliament house, parks, museums, department stores, and restaurants; even a glimpse of the sea.
And as one is in the heart of the Finnish sports life, the next door neighbours are the Icerink, the soccer field, and the swimming stadium with open air pools in the summer and a year around sauna.
Whether you arrive by foot, car or train it is easy to find Stadion Hostel. You will recognize it from the white tower.

Stadium Hostel

Unique Quality: This is a hostel, so that means that you can normally reserve a bed, not whole room...

The basic price, 80 FIM per night in the summertime, includes only sleeping a night. If u own a youth hostel card, the fee is 65 FIM per night.
With an extra fee, u can get a breakfast (25 FIM).
In the winter, the prices go down five marks.

Directions: Pohjoinen Stadiontie 3 B, 00250 Helsinki

It´s in the Olympic Stadium, so u can´t miss it!
