Liked: It was quite cheap place to stay and wasn't too far from the town centre. The property itself had friendly staff and especially toilets (that are used by many people) were clean and roomy. Rooms were in good condition too and there was free tea and coffee and wifi which was nice.

Disliked: The thing that annoyed me the most was that the free wifi worked only in the lounge, so it didn't work in my shared room for some reason. Another thing that I didn't like so much was that the whole place seemed quite outdated and old.

Liked: The Hostel is located within a short walk of the city centre, Maps at reception guide you easily to all museums etc, the kitchen is great, with 3 main cooking stations, which means you don't have to wait to prepare your meal (& lets face it in Finland you're going to need to cook a bit to afford the other fun stuff) The Free tea & hot chocolate every afternoon is a really nice touch, it helps the budget.

Disliked: It isn't too much of a social hostel, quite a few of the guests are long term stays. but as I said above the Tea & Hot chocolate offer does get the group together.

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.
