As I am currently looking for a flat in Turku, I am going to spend my first night in the youth hostel Borea - an old cruise ship located in the the river Aura. And here comes a short review. Hotel guests can get free tea and cookies as well as wifi in the lounge and I even got a whole cabin for myself.

There is also a restaurant onboard. Nearby the Hostel Borea you can also see a sailing ship - the Suomen Joutsen and a war ship. The ships are all located nearby the Forum Marinum, a National Specialist Museum for Finnish maritime and naval history.
