We stayed 3 nights in the hostel and enjoyed it a lot. Even though we were kind of worried about booking a small room without windows, it turned out to be no problem at all since the rooms were decorated practically. A huge plus about this hostel was also the great common kitchen with its 3 stoves and 3 big... More

I stayed in the hostel only for one night, but I would certainly do it again if travelling to Stockholm and looking for a place to stay. The hostel staff was extremely helpful and got me through a sudden bicycle episode. I really liked the staff there. :) Hence, there was a subway station just next to the hostel, which... More

The Hostel is located in the south of Stockholm in an area called SoFo. There are lots of nice bars, cafés and clubs near by and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The old town is a 20-25 minute walk away or you could just take the metro. The Hostel itself is in a basement and there are no windows in... More

The kitchen is the place where all the action happens - i think this place attracts a good crowd. Location wise this is in a 5 minute walk from the Skanstulls station (2 stations from Gamla Stan),...

This is a very nice, affordable hostel in southern Södermalm in Stockholm. We stayed in a windowless, private room and I think if I rebooked, I would pay the little bit extra and get a private room with a window. Altogether a pleasant experience.

Very friendly staff, good location close to metro and walking distance from the fun places in Södermalm. Shared bathroom doesn't give much privacy, one might want a more private place to take a shower.

A few of us had our stuff stolen from the 12-bed dorm during our stay there. While the staff was very helpful about it with the police report (which I am grateful for), the experience that followed was not at all pleasant. After the incident in the dorm, they had booked me into a private twin room as compensation for... More

Skanstulls is a really nice and trendy hostel with friendly staff. :) The room is really clean and beautiful. The showerroms and the toilets were also clean. Skanstulls is located near Gotgatan. Lots of pubs, supermarkets and restaurants are near the hostel.
