    Definitely recommend. I stayed in the all female room, which was very clean and spacious, with lovely bunks. Common area and kitchen also well-maintained with gorgeous decor. Will definitely be checking in the next time I come to Helsinki!

    I loved my stay here. The location is amazing. Loved my little bed area, it felt like my own private space/room with the shelf, light and curtain. The facilities are great and the place is spotless. The staff are also great, the girl that works here (Joanna?) was amazing, friendly and super helpful. I would definitely stay here again. Very secure, and quiet at night.

    The Yard Hostel is a very good place to stay in Helsinki. The location is perfect, comfortable beds (with curtains to give some more privacy), clean and with great people around. The high price is the only negative aspect. I would definitely recommend it if the price is not a problem for you!

    A really nice, clean and cosy hostel! I really enjoyed my stay here. There wasn’t much of an atmosphere as travellers didn’t really interact with one another and staff were not around much, however it was still a comfortable stay.

    Perfect location, super central in the city yet quiet inside. Hostel is definitely lacking bathrooms and showers though, as there were always people lined up. Staff was super helpful with recommendations for our groups needs throughout the city.
