Hilpea Hauki is located on Vaasankatu next to the Sornainen metro station - traditionally a notorious neighborhood. However, we encountered really friendly and professional service, good selection of beers and an enjoyable crowd. Not a single person being too drunk or causing any kind of...More

Friendly knowledgeable staff, and tremendous selection of beers. Lovely cosy environment too, where you could while away an afternoon or evening, and taste some great flavours. Well worth a look!

I have to admit, they have a good selection of beers. Pub itself is nothing fancy and of course the neighbourhood is something else. If you dare to come here via nearby metro station, you have seen the other Helsinki ;)

This place has a great beer selection and cozy atmosphere. We didn't get any food, but the Finnish beer selection was pretty big, lots of new things to try.

In a neighborhood full of places that sell the basic stuff on tab this is a safe haven. Really good selection of imported beers and kind service

Good selection of beers. Both Finnish and imported. Also seasonal products, sahti, sima etc. Relaxed and cozy and also tidy. Not so cheap, but at this area it is just a good thing :-) Can honestly recommend this place.
