Best hostels in Helsinki/Finland
Honestly, I have never been to Helsinki – but according to other people opinion is this city worth to visit! Due to my admiration for Scandinavian countries, it is not excluded I will go to Helsinki one day – because where else you can find a sauna in each accommodation property than in Finland!

Budget traveling is something, which becomes more and more popular, so why not travel cheap to the capital city of Finland as well.
