    Stayed in 8 Hostel’s on a 3 week long Europe trip and this was by far the best! Staff was so nice and accommodating, room was adorable with enough showers and facilities for a small place. Excellent location 0.3 miles from the bus stop and in the city center. STAY HERE!

    Super nice place. It was really quiet though. I don't know if it was just the people their but no one really talked. So great for getting rest or doing work. Not so great for socialization or meeting people. Otherwise it was wonderful.

    The Yard had terrific facilities, free breakfast in the morning and a cozy common room. The location was excellent, being right in the heart of Helsinki and walking distance from transport hubs and tourist spots. However, I wouldn't recommend this hostel if you're looking for a fun atmosphere. The common room was dead quiet, with everyone there on a laptop and in bed early. I was lucky to meet a few guys in my room, otherwise it would've been a very lonely few days.

    Great choice, right in the city centre of Helsinki and close to all kinds of restaurants, bars and shops. Very clean room and good wifi although my room had no windows. The staff was very helpful sending me information about how to check-in later than 23:00 and it was very easy to do so. It seemed though that there wasn't enough bathrooms for all the place
