Very friendly staff

If we are talking only on my room, it's just about right. If this location was even closer to the west terminal where cruise ships docks, this will be wonderful.

All in all a good experience.
Great location close to city center. Clean rooms and good service. It's not a 5 star hotel.. but did we really expect that? No!

It was good, but if I had have wireless connection in the room, I would solve some tasks better than I could.

Hostel Domus Academica, Helsinki
Rude, Over-Priced, and Dirty
The staff is hit and miss in terms of helpfulness. For the most part they don't want to be bothered with any requests, whether they be travel logistics, internet access, or room requests. Internet does NOT work in the rooms, but they will be more than happy to RENT you a direct line connection. Don't do it. They try and nickel and dime you on EVERYTHING from towels, to internet direct line, to all hospitality items.
