Booking Malminkartano facilities

Please notice that it is not possible to make new reservations for summer time.

The facilities can also be booked and rented for other use, in which case the fee is determined according to the pricing approved by the Youth Committee. The facility usage fees for the next year are confirmed in the spring of the previous year.

Instructions for youth centres

During the handover of the key, an individual over the age of 18 signs an agreement on the independent use of the facilities with Youth Services.

Please note that several groups may use the building at the same time, and reserving the entire building for private use is only possible in exceptional cases. As different rooms of the building may be in use simultaneously, this means that everyone has access to the common areas.

The facilities are accessible and include an accessible toilet.

The wireless networks are: StadiNet, munstadi or the City of Helsinki’s Wi-Fi.

The youth centre and its yard areas are substance-free areas, and we follow the principles of the Smoke-free Helsinki programme. We require all users to sort their waste.

Cancellation terms for facility reservations and amendment of the price

Facility reservations may be cancelled free of charge two weeks before the reservation is scheduled to start. Cancellations made later are subject to a cancellation fee of €50. In the event of failure to cancel an unused permanent reservation twice in a row, Youth Services have the right to cancel the reservation until the end of the operating period.

The division director may, for a justified reason, decide to amend the price in the final minutes prepared by the office holder if requested by an applicant in writing.
