We’re all about eco

At Both we’re serious about sustainability, and it drives our every move. We pay an annual compensation to offset our CO2 emissions.

We speak gay

We love people and people in love – no matter who you’re head over heels for. At Both we welcome you to come as you are. We’re part of the We Speak Gay community.

We love diversity

Diversity keeps us going: it’s our privilege to serve and socialize with people from all around the globe. In 2018 we had guests from 117 countries.

Both laid back and serious

Everybody knows how hard having to choose between things can be. And we certainly didn’t want to impose something on you just because we liked it that way. So here’s Both.

We are dedicated to offering you both of the best worlds: the opportunity to discover a lovely city full of things to see and do, and a relaxing vacation from the comfort of peaceful accommodation. We want to make it possible for you to do holidays in whichever way you like, without having to make compromises in your budget or your tastes. Thus we offer both private rooms and shared lounge areas; private kitchenettes and more. Stay and spend time at the premises, or explore Helsinki with friends, family, or the Both community. Here you can have Both.

Both old and new

Both was born in 2019, but we have already operated the biggest summer hostel in the entire country for years. Our freshly renovated quarters are located in the first-ever Finnish student dormitory. We love what we do and are pretty good at it too.

We guarantee a tasteful touch of both old and new. Both is home to some sweet old art pieces, such as original 1940s drafts by the Moomins creator, Tove Jansson. We’re also forward thinking and future oriented, making sure Both is sustainable, ecological, and environmental.

Both eco and sustainable

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!
