Property Description

Welcome to The YARD - your neighbourly hostel where everyone is a friend.

The YARD is a boutique hostel in the heart of Helsinki and Best Hostel in Finland years 2018 and 2019. We are your home away from home, a place were you will always feel welcome and valued. Our core goal is to make everyone walk through our doors fall in love with Helsinki by helping them get the best possible experience of our Nordic Capital. You’ll feel right at home in our relaxed and cool ambience.

We are a hostel with both private rooms and dorms. Most of our dorm beds have privacy curtains. Our large lounge is great for hanging out with your friends or making new ones. Plus free Wi-Fi for all and lots of real plants to keep the air fresh. Our kitchen is well equipped for you to prepare your own meals and we offer a free breakfast everyday.

So come and enjoy our hospitality. We are located just a five minute walk from Helsinki Central Railway Station, on a street that is bubbling with bars, restaurants, shops and sights. Luckily our strong stone building circa 1907 keeps the noise outside and you can chill in a relaxed ambience in-between exploring the city. Famous department store Stockmann and shopping center Forum are just next door.

You are warmly invited ♡ View House Rules

    One of the best hostels I have stayed at. Top location! Easy to get to from the Airport, Railway station, the ferry etc...Staff is very friendly, the dorms are clean, and comfortable with each bed having its own power sockets, locker and curtains for some privacy. Bathrooms are very clean as well. Free breakfast. It’s a small hostel but with a great atmosphere and excellent facilities. Will definitely stay here again!

    The Yard was just as described by so many others. Nice, clean, secure place right in the heart of Helsinki. There’s a bunch of bars literally downstairs but don’t expect people in the hostel to be overly social. Most just spent their time on their computers or with headphones in. I was at the end of the trip and didn’t mind at all but something to keep in mind if you’re looking for more of a party hostel. Super friendly staff and they helped me get all set up for some travel issues I had.

    Amazing location. Neat space. Would prefer bathrooms in the rooms or a big bathroom instead of individual toilet rooms. Love the addition of curtains on the bunks however it would be nice to see a rule that if you're not there, to leave them open partially. I was never sure if someone was sleeping or in the room and didn't know if I could make noise or not. Loved the stay though!

    Everything was great, the softest bed linens, clean!, except for loud music from the nearby club that kept me awake. Would recommend ear plugs if you stay here.

    A nice clean and quiet hostel. There's a guard at 23 telling you to leave the common area. That kills the mood a little bit. Also means you have nowhere to talk, read etc. after that.

    Good location and very friendly and helpful staff! But I thought the facilities were really poor. There were not many toiletts and showers and 3 of the toilets were located directly in the kitchen, what I thought was quite special. I am 1.77m tall and I was not able to sit on the toilett in a normal way as the rooms are so narrow. There is no room to place anything.
