Our core goal is to make everyone walk through our doors fall in love with Helsinki by helping them get the best possible experience of our Nordic Capital. You’ll feel right at home in our relaxed and cool ambience.

We are a hostel with both private rooms and dorms. Most of our dorm beds have privacy curtains. Our large lounge is great for hanging out with your friends or making new ones.

    Right in the center, few minutes from bus and railway station. Cozy common hall. Good and nourishing breakfast. Only two things were uncomfortable - constant sound of ventilation in sleeping room and that there was the only one socket for hair dryer in one wc. But these minors did not spoil the common impression.

    It’s a great hostel. I really loved the common area, it’s super cozy and make you feel so lazy to go out just because you feel comfortable being there. The room quite small, not much space, but you can stay in the cozy living room. The hostel provides books, PS (video games) etc. You don’t need to think what will you have for breakfast cuz they provide it. The location is great too.

    Fantastic location, helpful staff and one of the best night's sleep I've ever had in a hostel. Only slight downside is that there wasn't much to offer as far as evening social activities.

    A great place to stay! It is one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed in and the location is perfect. The hostel is super close to the train station and in the center of the city center attractions. If I return to Helsinki, I will definitely stay here again.

    I stayed for only one night. Very conveniently located few minutes walk from Central train station but still had no trouble falling asleep because it was peaceful and quiet. Atmosphere was very chill ppl relaxing at the common area. Didn't have time to eat breakfast but it looked fine. The hostel was clean and when I called to tell about my late arrival staff were very friendly and explained everything very clearly so checking in was easy. Beds were comfortable and private with curtains. Love em

    I stayed only for one night to catch an early flight and I'm glad that I choose the Yard Hostel! It's very close to the main bus station and the train station! The hostel itself was very clean and silent. The beds had curtains for more privacy which is always a huge plus for a hostel. The bathrooms were clean. The kitchen was nice and clean, and I was told that if you leave earlier than the breakfast is served, they offer some small "help yourself" breakfast.

    Hostel is clean and staff are really friendly. Great location, not far from train station. Curtains on bunks are great for privacy. It just seemed pretty overpriced but not sure if that’s just Helsinki.

    As people have mentioned before, atmosphere whilst not negative is lacking and perhaps could be improved with the odd activity to push people together. That aside, great hostel. Clean, modern, great size under bed lockers. Location is brilliant, just a short walk from the central station for busses and trains to the airport as well as other locations in Finland/Suomi. The breakfast was reasonable, with options if you're leaving real early too. Also free pasta and rice etc seemed to be available.

    Except for the great location, I would not recommend this hostel. The whole place, especially the bedroom, stinks of cigarette (coming from the ventilation system according to the staff) and the breakfast is the poorest ever seen, in terms of quality, quantity and diversity. I expected much better for 50€/ night!
