Apartments Vallila

For years Vallila was considered a working-class neighborhood and it still has its roots in industry, with there still being a lot of small but thriving workshops dotted around the area. Because of the cheaper cost of living many students and artists migrated to the area and Vallila is still enjoying a period of gentrification. Apartments in Vallila can therefore benefit from some great nightspots and café's though this does mean that prices are on the increase – so they time is right to rent an apartment in Vallila before prices inevitably skyrocket.

Rooms to rent Helsinki

Let's make no bones about it, Helsinki is an expensive city. Although education is free and of a very high standard, lifestyle costs can put a lot of financial pressure on people moving to the city. Therefore, a lot of people turn to renting a room out instead of a whole apartment. Instead of settling for a more private space, a little further away from the city center many expats and young professionals can benefit from a better location and a ready-made social circle by renting a room in Helsinki. Because of this emerging market there are more and more rooms to rent appearing in Helsinki with some fantastic deals to be had.

Student Accommodation in Helsinki

While many students prefer to stay close to campus or indeed in dedicated student accommodation, there is an increasing number of students who are looking to find their own accommodation – either renting small flats or finding rooms to rent. If you are interested in doing this then look no further than the district of Kallio. Until recently the area has been predominantly working class but has enjoyed a bohemian takeover – indeed while costs of living are low (relative to Helsinki), there are some fantastic restaurants, bars and boutique shops to enjoy and with a large student population – you will feel right at home!
