Orestis,

You're right, and Mathematica 'knows' that but it seems not to know
that it's also equal to Log[3363+2378*Sqrt[2]]/10

The most straightforward solution to this trouble seems to be the one provided
by Vladimir Bondarenko <vvb at mail.strace.net> :

In[1] := expr = ArcSinh[1]-Log[3363+2378*Sqrt[2]]/10;

In[2] := FullSimplify[expr, ComplexityFunction -> Length]

Out[2] = 0
