We’re here to offer you both

Here at Both we are committed to serving you both warmly and with expertise. Our reception and lounge serve your needs daily, and our staff is always happy to answer any questions you may have during (or after) your stay.

Both is located in the heart of Helsinki near shops, restaurants, and attractions, with public transportation available right outside the premises. For example, if you’d like to experience both urban life and the nature, the local bus to Seurasaari island passes by the hostel at regular intervals. Check out our community page or speak to our staff for more tips.

Both art and design

Did you know at Both you can also enjoy some classy Finnish art and design? Get ready to be amazed by the creativity and skill of one of Finland’s most famous artists, the Moomin creator Tove Jansson! We’re proud to present several of her authentic drafts from the 1940s.

Not just awesome art: we also have design. Ilmari Tapiovaara, one of the most iconic Finnish designers, is also known as the creator of many classic Artek pieces. Many of the original furniture in the premises were Tapiovaara pieces made in the 1940s. The building even has a namesake design from that period: the Domus chair, named after Domus Academica where Both is located. At Both you can enjoy Tapiovaara’s fantastic paintings in the hallways. We’ve also chosen furniture to especially pay homage to his original works.
