Vietnamese food night

We had a Vietnamese cuisine night the other day. Our wonderful chef Tapsa spoiled us with tasty treats from his homecountry. Who wants to cook on our next World Cuisine night? I heard there was interest all the way from England with their world famous dish, beans on toast.
Guessing the size of spring rolls
The End.

The best thing in our staff meetings is...


Did you know that  we have a very talented singer, actor, and one of the funniest guys in the world working at the hostel? Just go and see him wearing Speedos in a new musical comedy at Valkeakosken Kesäteatteri (Valkeakoski Summer Theatre), about 38kms from Tampere!
Our own celebrity, the one and only: Mikko!

Dream Team: Kamilla

Hello Kamilla! How did you end up working at the Dream Hostel?
I managed to convince our boss that I speak fifteen languages fluently, or was it nine or six?

I know you can speak at least 3! How do you spend your free time?
I've heard that word for sure… free… time… At least I'm not hanging around the hostel all the time… When I'm not at the hostel or university I'm probably sleeping.

What's the best thing about working at the hostel?  
There are always some small surprises waiting. Sometimes it's a 7kg box full of erotic...

Excuse me??
...EXOTIC candies from Pakistan, or a frozen cucumber that has formed a huge green icicle in the fridge. Not one day is similar!
Also the feeling of authority after managing to silence 20 screaming and shouting young men exactly at 24 o'clock just asking them politely to be quiet. Or the moment I find something to eat from the free food basket after noticing that I've forgotten my lunch home - again!

So, you will most likely see Kamilla scavenging the free food basket with a whip in her hand.
Have you got any tips for tourists where to visit in Tampere?
Don't take me wrong, I'm not that boring but visiting the Tampere Mineral Museum can be a real adventure. 

Where else one can find a rock that has water inside or seashells that look like genitals?!

I haven't seen them lying around the hostel... yet.

Team Cinnamon Bun

Moro again!

After a month of hard holidaying I am back at reporting the hostel news! There seems to be so many changes (good ones) at the hostel I probably have to update the blog every day :D

Tuesday was The Official Cinnamon Bun Day. Our friends from OmaPolku came to help us out and made our day with delicious buns!

Can't wait for the next food related happening at the hostel! :p
