Top tips for finding Helsinki hostel deals

  • Staying at a hostel in Helsinki is a popular method of finding inexpensive accommodations in the city and the greater metropolitan area, which is well served by several tram lines, the national rail system, and the metropolitan bus service. When booking a hostel in Helsinki, it is important to pay attention to the "House Rules" wherever outlined, because these highlight important bits of information like cancellation policies, check-in and check-out times, etc.
  • Located in the Kaartinkaupunki district of downtown Helsinki is Hostel Diana Park, an accommodation well suited to groups of visitors, as it has rooms that can sleep from four to eight people with community bathrooms. There are two trams lines (3 and 6) and the Helsinki Central Rail station that provide public transportation to other parts of the city, but you can find several landmarks within walking distance of this hostel in Helsinki, including Ateneum Art Museum and Swedish Theatre.
