Hostelling @ Dream Hostel in Tampere

'Hostelling @...' is a post where we take a quick look at the hostels around Finland. This time we're visiting Dream Hostel in Tampere.

Tampere used to be the centre of industrialisation in Finland and this can still be seen in the city's daily life as well as art and culture. These days Tampere is a vibrant university town and there is something going on all the time.
