Welcome to our hostel

The Local Culture Hostel & Café is a unique boutique hostel and vibrant culture café, showcasing Finnish and local culture with a fresh touch! The Local was opened in February 2018, in the oldest stone building in Jyväskylä, Finland! The hostel is located in the bohemian upper town of Jyväskylä, right next to the bubbling University Campus and less than 1 km from the main pedestrian street.

This cozy hostel has unique private rooms and 4-6 bed dorms accompanied with a comfy common living room and a well-equipped guest kitchen. Newly renovated and clean shower and toilet facilities are shared for all the guests and are located on the bottom floor. The rooms are like their own little worlds, inspired by the beautiful and wild Finnish nature and local history.

The Local Culture Café is an atmospheric vegetarian and vegan café that has quickly become a popular living room and a meeting place for the locals and travelers both, attracting all sorts of people from students to families and pensioners to local artists. Breakfast is served at the café in the mornings (Mon-Fri 7.30-10, Sat 8-12, Sun 9-12). You can customize the breakfast to fit your needs and only pay for what you take (2,00€-14,30€).
