About this listing

Oldie but goldie, in the heart of Kallio. 5 minute walk to the nearest metro and 6 minutes to the city center with it. Buss's and trams really close too! There are loads of cheap bars and restaurants in the area and a couple of clubs. Perfect for young people.
My building is old and my apartment is not in its prime anymore but still it's really cozy. Sadly no WI-FI in my apartment, but most of the cafes and restaurants in Helsinki have free WI-FI.

The space

My apartment is super tiny but still fun. There is a kitchen to prepare basic meals in (no oven or microwave). Whatever I have in the cupboards or in the fridge you may use, but no promises of breakfast even though bnb stands for Bed and Breakfast (grocery stores are nearby). But a bed I do have and it is located on the loft as shown in the pictures. People in good health should not have problems getting up there. My bed is 120cm which is best for a single traveler but it does fit a couple too or close friends.

Interaction with guests

If my work schedule allows I can show you main sights and attractions if you want or just join you for a cup of coffee or a drink somewhere.

Other things to note

In Finland it is really expensive if you lose the key to an apartment building. We have only one key for the building door and for the apartment door. So in the event of losing the key, all locks in the building must be changed and this can cost over a thousand euros. So please be really careful and try not to lose it. We will split the cost in case this would happen.

We booked up this apartment as we were in Helsinki for Flow Festival. The flat was in a great location and we loved the area of Kallio. It was also only a short bike ride in to the main city area. We really enjoyed our stay and thought it was a perfect little apartment!

Tove's place was very small but cosy. We really enjoyed her selection of record players. It's very close and walkable distance to the city centre. The only downside was the lack of the wifi and no breakfast as mentioned ( although Tove let us to use anything that was in the fridge) Room itself was tidy and clean and fresh linens were provided. I would definitely recommend this place for short term stay for people who are looking for affordable but centrally located accommodation in Helsinki. Thank you

Very nice, little apartment in Kallio with a very, very nice host. She was flexible about check-in and -out hours and gave great recommendations for restaurants in the area. Oh, and it is close to a public sauna :-) Be aware that there is no wifi.

Here is a good choice for several days' travel in Helsinki. Tove is a really cool and helpful host. Her place has a great location: close to public transportation(metro, tram, bus), if you choose to walk, it is also very easy to find right direction. Also, the place is really cosy, especially during winter, it is really nice to stay in warm and comfortable after whole day's travel ;) Thank you very much Tove ^.^ Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
