Dear participants as the days draw closer there are some few more important things to be informed about the training course in Helsinki Finland. These include your travelling and general information.

-Take a copy of the invitation letter with you when you are traveling as a way to avoid problems in the border services

Reaching the hostel further:

Although we have some volunteers to pick some of you up from the airport we will appreciate if you could kindly read this direction carefully on how to arrive at the hostel from the air port. This is very important given that we have a very large group coming we might not be able to pick everybody.

Helsinki is not a very big and complicated city as compare to others. The transportation system is well plan. From the air port. There are two possibilities to arrive to the euro hostels. You could either come by train or by bus.  If you decide to come by Bus, the Finnair bus leave every 10 minute at plate form 6. The bus stop is just in front of you as you exit from the airport. Finnair bus brings you straight to the central rail way station. While at the central railway station you will find the Sokos hotel just beside you.  In front of Sokos Hotel is the tram stop. Please take tram four (4) to the direction toward the North. The tram brings you very close to Euro Hostel. I will recommend you ask the driver should you have any doubts please or call me for any further information by this number +358(04)453188108. But if you prefer to come by train from the airport you just have to take the elevator down to the soft way. The train from the Tikkurilla direction is shorter to the central railway station.   The train is little cheaper compare to the bus.  The bus will take about some 20 minute to the central railway station while the train takes about 15 minute.


It is important that you change the protocols of your mobile telephones for their correct functioning during your stay in Helsinki Finland. You can ask for roaming service in your country before travel. In case you have Viber or WhatsApp it will not be a problem for you to use in the youth hotel because we will have access to the Wi-Fi.
