    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 was perfect in every single way. I am new to Hosteling and I could kick myself that I did not do this sort of thing sooner. The staff were extremely helpful, the place was very clean and secure and very very informal friendly atmosphere in the living, kitchen area. You can relax help yourself to tea, coffee, snacks, etc and feel at home. Thank you for making my stay there so agreeable. Only a small suggestion... Maybe a clearer sign outside???

    Really great hostel and super helpful staff! The place has a really great atmosphere to hang out in and offers a breakfast. The only thing about the location is that its in the center, which is great if you're going to/from the train station, but if you want a different atmosphere outside than Hard Rock café and malls, you have to go to a different part of the city (which is easy by metro, though). Overall good value for money!

    Nice place that was super clean, chill, and in a great location. Staff were friendly and their events seemed cool (didn’t get to attend any personally). Definitely recommended for those not looking for a crazy party hostel! Only con was some of the WCs were difficult to use because of how cramped the toilet locations were. Showers were really nice though!

    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.

    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!
