    I'd definitely say walking around. it's the cheapest way, and i think it's also the nicest way to go around Helsinki. if not, well bus and tram are useful. but it can be expensive, if you get the card. i got one for about 40 days, +10€ to use lets say to get home after going to a bar. and it was 65€..
    and I had to register as a resident of Helsinki in order to get the card.

    Walking has always been the way I've gotten around the city, but I've always had a map with me too.

    I've never been in Finland ( someday I will hehe) but I love to walk around the city, it's always a good way to find something interesting, like books, CDs and an excellent place to have a very good cup of coffee and meet very special people

    Default Helsinki

    I'd go with walking. I just came from Helsinki 5 days ago and my feet still hurt from walking hours and hours. I always had a transport map with me and a regular one just in case. I discovered the most beautiful places just by getting lost in the city..and when i was tired i 'd get the tram back to the railway station where i could get my bus back home. So walk as much as you can and then tram for me.
    I stayed there for a month and I lived near Viikki so I had to buy the HKL travel card and that saved me a loot of money and gave me the freedom to just hop into a bus or tram or whatever, whenever I wanted, without thinking how much money i had to pay every day. Pardon the long comment and any mistakes since i am new here. Lovely site to find , nice to meet you all.
    Moikka!

    Like everyone has already said, take a walk. It's not that big city that it would take ages to get from one place to another. But if you get tired of walking or want to see areas away from city center take a bus

    It is a nice walk from Eurohostel to the Kauppatori then on to the National Museum. Maybe 30 minutes, but on a nice day it will be worth it. In January it will robably be cold and wet.

    I was there in December and most people were wearing boots, unfortunately I was only wearing shoes. I'll know better next time.
