Subject: Re: Youth Hostels in Helsinki
Carol:

YOUTH hostel is a somewhat misleading name, since most hostels are open to all ages. I have never stayed in the Helsinki hostel, but in locations all around the world I have never been turned away because I'm over 59.

Generally there are dorm rooms &family rooms. I did find this hostel link, but I suspect there are several others in Helsinki as well. One is open only in summer but this one is year round:
