    Great home base to explore Helsinki. It's run super efficiently, with everything you need including a perfectly designed communal space. Wonderful and friendly staff; also a great spot to meet other travellers.. assuming you're willing to look up from your smart phone :)

    Nice place, not far away from the central station and important sights. Beds were comfortable, cleanliness of toilets and showers could be a bit better. Breakfast was decent. All in all definitly worth a stay.

    Good location, nice spacious room and good breakfast. No usb slots in the beds so you’ll need an adaptor. My biggest fault with this hostel is the atmosphere, really difficult to get talking to people or make friends if you’re a solo traveller. Would be nice if the staff could put on something at night to get people mingling a bit

    Everything in Helsinki is expensive, so are the hostels. The Yard is well located, clean and spacious. Would be good if they included towels in the price! Reception hours are minimal compared to other hostels which was odd. Included breakfast , security and proximity to the train station are the highlights.

    This is an excellent hostel. It's clean, the staff is nice, the breakfast isn't too bad, and the location is perfect! However, it's a bit too expensive. I paid 70 EUR for a bed in a shared room. Compare that with an Airbnb for which I paid less than 50 EUR in an equally great location for a private room with better facilities, I don't think the price is justified.
