Property Description

THE YARD is a concept hostel in the heart of Helsinki. We are your home away from home, a place were you will always feel welcome and valued. Although The Yard is brand new, our values are traditional: Be welcoming to travellers and treat them the way you would wish to be treated when abroad. You’ll feel right at home from the moment you come through our doors.

So what makes us stand out? Well we definitely look good. Focus on Finnish design and local art with a touch of urban jungle. All this in the heart of Helsinki in an iconic building built in 1912. We are a hostel with both private rooms and dorms. We also offer a large lounge where you can hang out with your friends or make new ones. Plus free Wi-Fi for all and lots of real plants to keep the air fresh.

Above all else, THE YARD IS ABOUT HELSINKI - our Helsinki. The city is in our veins, we live and breathe it. Our mission is to make you fall in love with it.

So come and enjoy our hospitality. At The Yard you will be right in the middle of the giggle, on one of the only walking streets in Helsinki that is crammed with restaurants, bars and cafes. And then, if you want the full-on experience of our city, immerse yourself in the bar culture of Kallio, the chic lifestyle of Punavuori or the parks and nature surrounding the city. All are within just 15 minutes reach of The Yard – Helsinki's first and only concept hostel.

    I would stay here longer if I could. Superb location, right above the hustle and bustle of Helsinki, and great self-service breakfast. Since I left at 8 am, it was super helpful just picking up the food from the fridge. Also, the bed is so soft like polar bear, slept within few seconds despite the midsummer sun coming through the window. Overall, this is a clean, immaculate, well-designed hostel with professional staff.

    Probably one of the best hostels I've stayed at. Very comfortable, warm and friendly. Simple breakfast but no need for anything more, and coffee available all day.

    Everything was really nice, hostel is very close to the main attractions the only problem is that the hostel has just few bathrooms for many people, so sometimes you have to be in line to use the bathroom. Overall everything was great.

    Very Good

    Hostel is reasonable overall. Very secure and centrally located. Problems: Room 6 smells like cigarettes nearly constantly because of an intake vent outside near a smoking spot. Staff are aware but no solution? Not enough bathrooms and showers for the hostel. You’ll usually have to wait. Expensive. Otherwise average, free breakfast of toast and cereal is a nice addition.
