Hostel Suomenlinna is located on the north top of Iso Mustasaari, on one of the four islands of Suomenlinna. This 250-year-old fortress is situated 2km and 15 minutes ferry trip from the Market Square next to Helsinki City Hall and Presidential Palace, where the Helsinki Region Transport ferry leaves and arrives. Thanks to the regular, punctual and comfortable ferries, all of Helsinki's attractions are easily accessible. Our unique location means also that you can quickly change from the hectic city buzz to the Zen atmosphere of Suomenlinna. The ferry ride is worth of admiring the beautiful archipelago scenery and its part of the charm when staying at Suomenlinna both in the summer and in the winter.
Suomenlinna (called also Viapori, Sveaborg in Swedish) has been preserved intact because of its military use. In 1991 it was included in Unesco’s World Heritage List. Suomenlinna is not only a historical monument from the 18th century, but a lively neighbourhood of 850 inhabitants with i.e. an elementary school, kindergarten, guest boats' haven, art school, artists' studios, military school, recording studio, several restaurants, cafés and museums.
