Tampere: Dream Hostel
Dream Hostel is the most modern hostel in Finland. It opened up in 2010 and the basic idea was to offer customers genuine, international hostel feeling together with personal service. The concept seems to be working – Dream Hostel has been selected 5 years in a row as the best hostel in Finland.
Modern hostels usually offer rooms also for people who appreciate the atmosphere of hostels but want some more privacy. That’s why in 2014, the hostel opened up modern hotel rooms upstairs of the hostel. They decided to invest a lot for the design, but at the same time the spirit of a hostel remained. The 20 hotel rooms are decorated in scandinavian style and they all have private bathrooms.
The hostel/hotel is one of the few privately-owned hotels in Tampere. In recent years, it has received some international recognition. Dream Hostel & Hotel was in “the top 10 European luxury hostels” listing by The Guardian. The new design of the hotel rooms has raised interest in the architect circles as the project was listed in Dezeen.com -website.
