Hostel Helsinki - Cheap accommodation on your Helsinki city break

4 thoughts too "Hostel Helsinki - Cheap accommodation on your Helsinki city break"

    1. Very much, Britt. I hope they help you with your travel planning.

  1. I have to confess, I personally overwhelmed with shared apartments, because I do not like kitchen and bathroom very much. For me, hostels offering only shared bathrooms would not be an option. But good that you have pointed out that in most of them there is always a bathroom in the room. In the end, hostels could become an alternative to AirBnb and the like for me. Especially if you have to pay attention to the budget - and that is often the case in the Nordic countries for many average travelers. A post with many good tips, so you have more money for souvenirs and things to do. :) LG Julia

    1. Dear Julia,

      the reason why I wrote this post is exactly the one you address. On Scandinavia you have to see what you spend your money on. We do not usually stay in hostels. We are out of old age. But since traveling to Scandinavia is generally expensive, that is an option that should be considered - even for us. Especially if there are double rooms with private bath. Shared kitchen and shared bathroom are not our thing. Since our privacy is more important to us.

      Greetings to Italy,
      Monika
