The Hakaniemi metro station (Finnish "Hakaniemen metroasema" / Swedish "Metrostationen Hagnäs") is a station on the Helsinki Metro. It serves the central Helsinki districts of Hakaniemi and Kallio.

The station was among the first metro stations opened in Helsinki, on 1 June 1982, and was designed by Mirja Castrén, Juhani Jauhiainen, and Marja Nuuttila.

The station is situated at a depth of 23 metres below ground level (21m below sea level).
