Peace on the islands
Wonderful location on the islands - a stone's throw from the ferry dock and a supermarket. Would love longer hours at reception and also would love if they made/stripped the beds for you, but I recognise the extra staff would !mean extra costs, as well as perhaps removing some of the charm that there is. Everyone I met was helpful, whether guest or staff. It wasn't too loud (admittedly I was that midweek in late November), and despite a room off the kitchen area I barely heard a thing. Probably not where you want to stay for a week of exploring Helsinki, but for one or two nights of your four or so nights in Helsinki this is a great place to stay.

Hostel Suomenlinna, Helsinki
unique place to stay in the middle of the Helsinki. very clean hostel, not for the people who are used to staying in hotels, but great adventure for travelers. stayed there with my young daughter, it was wonderful experience and i wouldn't hesitate to go back. never saw anybody in reception or working there, since we arrived after 3.30pm and left before 8, but arrangements were done seamlessly and we had a very pleasent stay.

Best keps secret in Helsinki
The best part of my stay in Finland. Suomenlinna hostel is clean, inexpensive and in an excellent location: a quiet place just a stone's throw away from central Helsinki. The ferry has frequent service and is a short ride. There is a supermarket 50mts away and Jaakellari Art Shop and Café a few blocks away offers a generous serving of the most delicious homemade soup, including bread and coffee for a reasonable 8euro. Fantastic place!
