    As a first timer in Helsinki getting from the airport to The Yard was easy. I purchased a 1 day travel pass for 12.50 euros that gives you access to 3 zones A,B AND C. The train took about 25mins to arrive at Central Station and it took me 10mins to get to the Hostel. The location is on the 3rd floor, It was very secure, clean and I was pleasantly surprised by the room. Lenore the receptionist was very friendly. Their is ALOT to see and do in the area, and shops, I will visit again.

    The YARD hostel is a bit on the higher end of the price spectrum, but the location truly can't be beat! I loved that there are curtains for privacy and all of the rooms are very clean and cozy. The common room is spacious and comfortable, with a huge HD TV to watch anything on Netflix, Youtube. Reception is open only from 9am to 8pm, but the receptionist who checked me in was so lovely and nice. Breakfast was okay, and towels are for a charge (2 euros). I'd certainly stay here again!

    Very good hostel in heart of the city. Close to main railway station and Kamppi bus terminal (intercity bus terminal). Hostel is clean and staff very friendly.

    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

    Perfect hostel if you want a decent comfy bed, modern facilities and chilled environment. Very well located close to the railway station and was not hard to meet other people in the living area if you just speak to others!

    I had a comfy, if boring, stay at The Yard. There are so many pros: It's in the center of town and a fast, easy walk from the train station. Dorms have little curtains around the bed which makes for a really nice feeling of privacy. All the bathrooms are singles, so there's no awkward run-ins in a locker room-style shower. Staff were efficient but not exactly friendly; if you're looking to meet people & party, this is probably not your place, but for a clean, cozy crashpad, this is perfect.

    It ain’t a party, but the facilities, cleanliness, staff are all BEST. And the location is perfect for finding the party- I recommend the bar literally at the front door for starters

    The hostel is super central with good security and the facilities are really good too with a nice lounge and kitchen to use. The dorm room I stayed in (6 bed female dorm) was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was included which was a bonus and enjoyable. Staff helpful. Seemed a bit expensive but maybe that’s just Finland?! and there is a lack of atmosphere in the lounge at night. Need to have some activities to get people mixing. Toilets directly of the main areas was strange too but ok.

    Nice place, expensive but it is Finland after all. Kind of weird common room set-up. Comfiest bed I've ever had in a hostel though, and you get a huge locker!
