Buckle up Helsinki

Hobo is here to shake things up!

Hobo is our idea of community. A place where we live, work, create, learn and have fun – together. A home for the wild at heart and the constantly curious. With 183 unique rooms, the whole 2nd floor filled with venues, a bar / restaurant and always something fun happening in our house, we know you’ll find something here to love. 

See you around right at the dead center of Helsinki, Kluuvikatu. We are open!

Rooms & Hobo Suites

From minimalistic mastery to grand design. At Hobo Helsinki, you’ll find rooms in six different categories across our eight floors. They say size doesn’t matter but rumour has it some of our rooms are more on the larger side, if you know what I mean. ;)

Hasta la venue, baby!

Event spaces at Hobo Helsinki

Hobo has fun and imaginatively designed event locations which leave no room for boredom. Here, event formats can be planned which couldn’t be more different. Why not plan something superlative for your next team event and go down in the company’s history with great fanfare? Or would you prefer to pitch the next million-pound idea to the CEO on a smaller scale? You name it - our events team is up for (almost) anything and implements even individual event ideas creatively and professionally.

Snackin’ away

The bar is where it's at

Feeling hungry? The Hobo bar and restaurant is the heart of our house. With regularly changing menus, live gigs, art and events, our ground floor is like a reflection of the city. We pride ourselves on a conscious mindset, working with hyper-local produce, homegrown ingredients, natural wines and microbreweries. In other words: everything you need for the perfect stay.

Diversity Lounge - anti-ableist alternative to participating in the Pride parade

The purpose of the event is to provide an anti-ableist alternative to participating in the Pride parade. The event space has a direct view of the parade’s route on Aleksanterinkatu. So you get to follow the parade from the best places available. The event is open to everyone, but we hope you give space especially to those for whom other forms of participation are not possible for one reason or another. In addition to following the parade, the focus of the event is pleasant togetherness and relaxed hanging out with like-minded people.

Hobo Helsinki's gym is the sh*t

No, but really. We don't like to brag, but our gym is a really, REALLY good gym. Located on the -1 floor, it has everything you need for an awesome workout. And - everything is new and shiny!
