Covid-19 safety plan at yök

Dear guests, friends and family,

We are happy to announce that we will reopen our doors on July 20th. It has been a long 4 months of much reflection, emotional turmoil and also gratitude, and we have been working hard the last few weeks to make everything here at yök safe, sustainable and fun. Our main objective hasn’t changed: we are a business based on People, Planet & Profit. We are dedicated to keeping our business going while at the same time offering you a safe, responsible and pleasurable experience.


What we do to keep COVID19 out

Display dispensers of alcohol-based hand rub at the entrance of the apartments and our office.
Keep providing natural soap in all apartments.
Increase cleaning of communal areas, door handles, etc.
Allow extra time to clean apartments between guests thoroughly (disinfect all surfaces, ventilate all rooms, etc.) according to WHO guidelines.
Implement a no-shoe policy by placing shoe racks in the entrance of each apartment.
Have house slippers on sale should you need some, and remind guests to bring their own prior to arriving.
We have removed all games and books for the time being so please bring your own.
Kitchen supplies like tea, sugar, olive oil, salt and pepper, as well as certain gift objects, are now available in our office upon request.
We offer the option to check in with a code without meeting anyone.
If you prefer, we can do a face to face check-in maintaining at least a 1 meter distance and wearing face masks.

We provide free filtered water and remind guests to bring their refillable bottle to use about town.
We help you plan your day around any COVID19-related restrictions you might encounter so you can make the most out of your trip whilst staying safe and relaxed.
