Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Both is located in the heart of Helsinki close to the beautiful Hietaniemi beach, Kamppi shopping mall, restaurants and sightseeing attractions. Tram and bus stops are around the corner while the metro and train are only a short walk away.

At Both you don’t have to choose between private and social - you can have Both! Both offers shared rooms and private rooms with en suite bathrooms and kitchenettes. Socialites can have a relaxing chat with other travelers at Both’s cool shared spaces. Both is also home to some sweet old art pieces, such as original 1940s drafts by the Moomins creator, Tove Jansson.

We’re truly committed to making it easier for our guests to travel responsibly. We are part of the WWF Green Office organization, and operate Both according to its principles. Our staff wears sustainably produced uniforms, and we donate old clothes and reuse furniture. And not to brag or anything, but we also pay annual compensation fees to offset CO2 emissions from our operation, including your stay with us! Both is also HI-Quality and Sustainability certified!

Wonderful hostel near the city center. The private bedroom has stoves and a fridge so you can cook your own meal if you want. Everything is wonderful. I will recommend this hostel to everyone.

Hinta-ja laatusohde kohdillaan ja sijainti mitä mainioin. Hieman hämmennyimme keittiön huonosta varustelusta. Yksi muki, yksi haarukka jne.
