Skanstulls has got so much more personality than any other hostel I've stayed in. The rooms are all individually decorated and quite quirky and the quality is as good as any hotel. The kitchen provides free tea, coffee and pasta and it has everything you could need for your stay. The only downside to the lack of windows is that... More

Good location not far from Gamla Stan. It was easy to find. Staff were very polite and helpful and allowed us to leave our luggage until check in at 3pm. Room was quite narrow but enough storage for luggage etc with roomy entrance hall. No window in room but it was fine and kept it nice and dark, was a... More

Skanstulls hostel is one of the best hostels I've ever visited. Check-in is easy, rooms are comfy, travelers have a great friendly vibe, and the kitchen is FANTASTIC - beautifully decorated, lots of stove tops, dishes, coffee, fridge space and free pasta. Restaurants in Scandinavia tend to be expensive by my standards, so I really appreciated using the kitchen and... More

This place was a really nice and comfortable place. I spent five nights in January 2014. The instructions on how to find the hostel, and use the night check-in were very clear and thorough. As other people mentioned, the bed was surprisingly very comfortable. This was a fantastic place to stay for the price. Staff were great, and everything was... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend for two nights in a double private room. We had received a confirmation email upon booking that advised that the reception was open until 8pm. Arriving well in time at 5pm, we were greeted with a locked door and no signs of life inside! There was an emergency number to call on the door,... More

Nice (private) rooms that make you smile, good service at the reception. If you are already familiar with Stockholm city centre, try staying at Södermalm instead! A hip neighbourhood with good selection of restaurants, cafes and shops.

While the place is in a basement, it never feels stuffy. The beds were really good with big lockers built in to the wall next to the bed. There were enough bathrooms and the kitchen was really nice. It's a very open concept kitchen that shares the space with the common room so you can just cook there (free pasta-just... More

My best friend and I stayed here for 3 nights in September and we had a wonderful stay. The staff were friendly and very helpful in recommending places to eat etc. We were in an 8-bed shared room. The bed and pillows were surprisingly comfortable. (But you have to bring your own sheets and towels, or rent them! They do... More

This is definitely one of the better hostels I have stayed in. At 250- 300K per night (£25 - £30), it is definitely not the cheapest but these prices are consistint with other budget accommodation in Stockholm. I had a 6 bed dorm complete with own locker and padlock (yes you don't have to bring a padlock!) the room was... More

The ensuite double room is better than some budget hotels in Scandinavia, albeit it has no window. The room is good size, and the bathroom is excellent. It is clean, but the bed is a bit soft and you have to rent bedsheets if you don't have your own. It has an excellent kitchen and cozy dining room with free... More
