I visited this hostel as a solo female and found this hostel very safe and comfortable. The interior is very clean and funky. There are many other solo females staying here. The staff are very friendly and there are great facilities. This place would be an ideal place to stay if visiting Helsinki. Would also be perfect for a girls trip!

Good location, but as there is no stuff at the place, some young people from Germany and England had parties both nights until about 4 o'clock in the morning. Even though I told them to shut up, they just told: "Very soon".

I was travelling as a single person and The Yard was the perfect place to stay. Very centrally located, extremely nice people staying there and good facilities like a clean and well-equipped kitchen and well-cared bathrooms. However, no staff is around, which means that you have be very independent with organising everything by yourself. As I found my keys and maps of the town right away at the reception desk, this was no problem for me, but some others were a little bit lost.

I really enjoyed our stay here! 😍 We were a group of six and felt very secure within the hostel. The accommodation was really modern, with some lovely homely touches. I especially liked the breakfast, which was plentiful and included in the price. The staff were really pleasant and we had no problems throughout our stay. I would definitely recommend this hostel due to the central location, friendly staff and quiet surroundings! 🥰🏨
