This week we are taking a look at Youth hostels in Helsinki. Why? Well, Finland is awesome, Helsinki is probably the coolest name for a city, like ever, and Finnish people are generally known for being good looking and happy – so why not promote traveling in Helsinki via Hostel?? Just go, you can thank us later.
Here are a couple hostels in Helsinki to get you started:
Eurohostel has 5 floors of comfortable rooms for all different budgets. Each floor has its own kitchen (with hotplates, not stoves), microwaves, refrigerators and TVs. There are also smoking and non smoking floors available. They have a restaurant (and bar!), internet access, laundry, and no curfew. A great Helsinki hostel.
Fenno Hostel is a “tourist class hotel,” according to their hostelworld listing. Whatever that means, the place looks nice enough. They are located close to the central train and bus stations in Helsinki, making them a convenient choice for a Hostel in Helsinki. They have single and twin hotel-style rooms with kitchenettes, or you can go for the budget single economy rooms with private bedrooms and shared facilities. They even have a buffet breakfast available in their café and a BBQ restaurant and 2 saunas! That’s some sweet Helsinki hostel living!
Hostel Mekka is and old school Helsinki hostel, founded in 1936! They are located in a building from the end of the 18th century, just 2 blocks from the Senate Square. Here, you can get your fill of Helsinki nightlife with restaurants, bars and clubs just around the corner. Hostel Mekka is another great option for hosteling in Helsinki.
