I decided for my first trip to Finland to start in Helsinki, and I chose the Yard Hostel. It is situated perfectly close to the station, but I have to admit: being tired after a long trip it was quite hard for me to find the hostel. Maybe I should have had a better look at the instructions sent via e-mail. But well, as I said, I was busy traveling. The hostel was super clean and whilst the bedrooms offered some privacy (beds with curtains), the lounge area was very inviting to communicate with your co-travelers. I enjoyed my stay there a lot and would fully recommend it!!
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".
Very clean hostel, great facilities, cozy lounge and nice staff. I also met lots of amazing people during my stay. There is nothing I could complain about, overall one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in.
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! 🥰🏨
I was unfortunately only able to visit for one night, but I liked it very much. The accommodation (room, restroom, kitchen area, shower) was very clean and I felt very comfortable. They paid close attention to details, which made the atmosphere so relaxed. I would definitely book another night here when I am back in Helsinki. Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, everything went smoothly although nobody was present. Thank you very much for everything!
I was staying in the Yard hostel for 2 days, and it was perfect for me as a solo traveler. Bed, closed with curtains, makes you feel safe and separated from others. Having personal space is super important! Breakfast is also good. Basic products like cereals and toasts are provided. The space is rather clean and very cozy. Thank you, team of the Yard hostel, for good service and comfy conditions🌸
I was here for maybe the 3rd time or 4th and this time it was even cooler. On entry I knew reception from last year. One evening everybody at one moment starts to talk to with each other. At the end I went out with 3 cool people and next morning again with 3 other people. Nice people from china.
I had a great stay at The Yard Hostel! The room was well set up (curtains for privacy, big under bed storage drawer, ample power outlets and light). There is a nice communal lounge and kitchen. Breakfast was provided every morning (DIY, nothing fancy but enough to start the day). Great location in the centre and pretty easy walking to most attractions. On arrival, I did have to wait around 15 minutes outside the front door as the girl was cleaning and couldn’t hear the doorbell or the phone ringing.
