Tiina & Mauri are great hosts! They met us near the building and showed everything in the apartment. The studio was lovely and looked exactly like in photos. It was very cosy and it was nice to rest in it after the long day. The studio is located near the city center and we were able to visit all popular sights in Helsinki without buying tram tickets. There are 3 supermarkets near the apartment. We definitely recommend to stay in this place all who want to visit and explore Helsinki.
Excellent host. Place was very clean. Comfortable bed, great location for kallio area
Tiina and Mauri gave us a warm welcome and gave us tips about Helsinki. They waited up for us even though we arrived in the middle of the night - because our plane was delayed. We're thankful for that. The appartment was cozy and clean, and the location was perfect, in the heart of Kallio. There is many cool cafes, restaurants and small shops close to the appartment.
We had som great days in "Positively 4th street" and Helsinki.

We loved staying in Tiina and Mauris small flat. It's close to public transport - Helsiniki is easy to move around in. Also there are many nice cafees and restaurants nearby. And Tiina and Mauri were very easy to get hold of.
The apartment is lovely arranged and has a nice flair. It is small but everything necessary is in there and its completely suitable for 2 persons. We were warmly welcomewith fresh flowers.
Tiina and Mauri gave us a lot of information and took care of an unproblamatic stay for us.
Milk, coffee, tea and general kitchen stuff was included which was also really nice after an exhausting day in Helsinki. It was even that comfortable that we decided to have an relaxing evening watching some TV :D
I can only recommend that apartment for short-term stays in the city. It's practical and close to the city center to walk there even.
