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.

This is a great hostel. Staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean. It is one mile from the old city area which is good. The area around the hostel has good places to eat. The bathrooms and showers are clean as well. Definitely a good choice.

This hostel had a purpose made kitchen for numerous people shared in the coziest common room I've seen. AND there was free pasta! It was just really comfortable and clean. The male shower room just needs extra showers in there because some have been taken down, but the showers i did have, i never had a problem with hot water.... More

Skanstulls is an excellent hostel. We stayed in the private rooms, located towards the back of the hostel, which felt more like hotel standard rooms, but really appreciated having the hostel facilities. The rooms were exceptionally clean and well sized. There weren't any windows but we didn't mind given we travelled in summer. The kitchen area was always clean and... More

Both, the part time reception - which is not so usual - and the bed linen strategy -which seems to be a quite usual phenomenon in the nevertheless pricy Scandinavian hostels - to reduce and hide costs turned this hostel into a quite sterile and expensive place, more like a motel. Staff was only little chatty, quite unfriendly just because... More

The hostel has a nice kitchen area. Clean on the whole and comfortable. Location is great as the Skanstulls metro station is nearby, there are nice eateries and there is a supermarket opposite the hostel. One thing to improve is the ventilation in the room.

This place was very affordable considering the high prices of Stockholm. I stayed 3 nights with one night break in between at another hostel. To me this was the best choice for a hostel. Very comfortable beds for a hostel. You need to bring your own bed linen which is a bit of a downer, that was the only bad... More

Considering how ridiculously expensive Stockholm is, this quaint little hostel is the perfect place for those traveling solo or with friends. It's reasonably priced, very close to the Stanstull metro (2 minute walk), has a nice little kitchen for guests to use, and the women's restrooms and showers and clean. However, The reception is only open from 8 am to... More
