Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
Yet don’t expect to find dingy, dirty spaces just because this is a cheap hostel in Helsinki.
No way! CheapSleep Hostel offers great perks for the price, such as:
Fast Wi-fi across the property
Quite impressive, huh?
The reason there are two kitchens is because this is a rather large hostel.
There are, in fact, 218 dorm beds with the largest mixed dorm housing 26-beds – wowee!
Don’t worry though. If you prefer a smaller room but still like socialising, there are 4-bed options, too.
Each bed has a reading lamp and plug socket, yet no privacy curtain.
This is about the only thing we think you’ll miss out on here because of the ‘cheap’ factor.
For couples we suggest booking the private double with en-suite – it’s simple, yet comfortable.
Staying at the weekend? There’s usually a party happening here, but quiet time is still strictly from 11pm-7am.
We have to say the large shared lounge is super cool.
Check out the old-fashioned arcade games and snack machine!
Chill, read, work, chat – this space can be used for so many different reasons, no matter what kind of traveller you are.
Location: although a little outside the centre, there is easy access to a tram to reach downtown Helsinki. The main train station is 10-minutes away. It is 6-minute walk to The Park By Cheapsleep Hotel Helsinki.
