Liked: Very clean and organised. Seemed to totally separate male and females in completely different areas of the hostel - could be good or bad! There was loads of toilets, can't imagine anyone ever having to queue. Right near the river so fairly good location. Good room mates.

Disliked: Could have been more central to town but Turku isn't that big so still only a 10 minute walk. There was a little area outside with a few seats but would have been lovely if they had a private garden/patio area to chill in - the seats were at the front next to the car park.

Liked: this was a very nice place to stay. it had an excellent kitchen with many cooking stations.

Disliked: it would have been nice to have the lockers in the dorm rooms instead of in the common area, though it did seem very safe in this location. the option of a mixed gender dorm would have been preferable.

Liked: the hostel is close to the city centre ... just a walk about 10 min...it's very clean and nice to stay here ... very good kitchen facilities except of the fact that there is just one small fridge ...

Disliked: internet access relatively expensive in the cypercafé ... if you stay longer and you travel alone this might not be the best place to stay since there is no real common room or anythign to meet people. anyways, if you travel with a group or stay just for a night or something it's definately good to choose this accommondation!!!
