Hostel Turku

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 26, 2013

Location
1,5km south of the train station, next to Aura river, 1km from market square. We got there by bus #30, there’s a bus stop near the hostel where you can catch the bus to castle or the bus back to the center.

Price
Excellent budget accommodation. In june 2013 we had a double room with shared bathroom for 54euros. Price per person in a dormitory is about 20euros.

Service/reception
Check in is only available after 15.00 so we had to wait for a while in the lobby. The stuff was ok, not that we needed anything but they seemed helfful. They also sell Turku Card and rent bikes.

Facilities
There’s free wi-fi in public areas and one computer in the lobby. Free lockers if you want to leave your luggage.
We liked that there are 2 communal kitchens, the one near our room was spacious and extra clean.
Finally although we didn’t use them we noticed a laundry room and vending machines.
Breakfast
Wasn’t included in the price (extra 5,50e per person) so we skipped it due to some poor reviews about it.

Shared showers/toilets
they are separated, we didn’t have to wait to any, and the most important they are clean, depending where your room is they may be a bit far from the room

Room
Not much to be expected for a double spartan room in a hostel, so we had 2 beds, a desk, wardrobe and a fridge, but just what we needed for 1 night stay only.

Not recommendable

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 22, 2010

We stayed there only for one night. First we were happy to realise that it has a reasonably good location, close to the river. When we arrived there, it was 14:45 and we were told that they open at 15:00. We agreed to wait till 3 pm but meanwhile witnessed that they served two men, apparently from the Arabic countries. It made us feel very stupid.

However, when it was already 15:00 we went over to the reception and the first bad surprise came with the fact that we have to pay 5 euro for linens and tissues, although we were never warned on this.

It was pretty too much to realise that Internet is not free of charge and if you want to connect to it you have to use their Internet cafe.

Luggage lockers are also to pay, otherwise you have to leave it in the room, accessible by the staff and other 8 people.

The hostel itself is nothing special, Thanks God they don't charge the showers and the kitchen. They close the kitchen after 23:00.

The hostel itself is nothing

Turku hostel, WE WON'T VISIT YOU AGAIN. NEVER EVER.

Directions: along the river and between the center and the harbour.

This hostel located by the river not far from the city centre of the ferry harbour either. It is much cheaper then any hotel so if you are on the budget I suggest to stay here. Just remember that during the summer time and other holiday season this place is fully booked so make your reservations well in advance.

Famous and affordable Hostel

by written on February 20, 2003

This is a good one, if you are a backpacker or Interrailer. Or when you want to sleep in a nice place ( better than a tent) but you don't want to waste all your travel cheques just to get a bed and a pillow.

Unique Quality: Turku Hostel is also in city centre, located near Aura river.You can also eat good and healthy breakfast here (or it was a healthy one 2 yrs ago, I don't know situation right now).
Hostel Turku houses twin and quadruple rooms. Or choose a really low-budget alternative in a room for 6-8 persons for only 13,50 €.
Discount for Hostelling international members YMF etc.!
