The ladies at the reception were extremely nice and helpful. Check in was very easy and efficient. Our room for 5 people was very spacious and clean. All the workers we encountered were extremely friendly and made our stay very nice. Highly recommend this hostel.

How perfect can life be?
I stayed at this hotel for many days. My room was not cleaned when it was 5th day. I was going to the shared kitchen to prepare a meal, i saw a cleaning lady on the way. i asked her how often the rooms are cleaned she said: once a week, but i can clean your room right now if you want. i agreed and went to the shared kitchen. when i was waiting my meal to finish in microvawe i opened a fridge, i found there 2 beers, with a note that said: free for grabs :). There i was watching TV and eating dinner, drinking free beer and chokolade i found in a kitchen while my room was being cleaned and wondering, how perfect can life be? When i came back to my room after my meal, everything was compleately clean. Even my pants that i left on the floor were folded nicely and put on the bed. well after an experience like that i decided i will not say anything nagative about this hotel ever. They say that the road to a mans heart goes through his stomach. Well my stomach was full of beer. best thing is that the next day, there were still free beer on the fridge and i left the tip to the cleaningcloset, hoping that the cleaner will find it with a note thanking her. well the next time she came to work she cleaned my room again :) How can i critisize this hotel anymore? they stole my heart!

Stayed in a double room and loved it. It was spacious, clean and warm, the breakfast was filling and everything was freshly prepared. The staff are friendly, the Hotel is central to the town, surrounded by pubs and supermarkets. Definitely recommended.

2/10 Poor

My wife and I got covid 48 hours before this trip to Rovaniemi during Christmas. The hotel had little to no empathy on cancellation/refunding us this trip or making any exceptions. They are cold as a wall. Not the type of establishment I would want to be associate with.

Overall great hostel except the cold room
The hostel was great. The only negative thing I would have to say is that our room was pretty cold, and there was no way to turn up the heat since the thermostat was already at its highest temperature (it didn’t seem to be working very well).
