Spend an unforgettable hostel night at a museum ship! Charm and atmosphere of an old cruise ship.

S/S Bore, or ‘Zero Bore’ as Turku residents know it, was completed in 1960 in Oskarshamn, Sweden. The location of Bore, now a museum ship, and the hostel operating onboard the ship is ideal – on the Aura River, in front of Forum Marinum. The guests can even walk from the harbour to the hostel.
