I came to Stockholm to take part in a conference and stayed here for 5 nights with my friend. We arrived around 10 p.m. and had got the door code and safe box code for our key cards earlier via email. We thought that the key card system was not safe when arriving late: I could see others' key cards... More

Nice Hostel with decent facilities but security and management are terrible! After 5 pm (7 in the weekends), there's just no one from the staff in the hostel anymore. If you have an urgent situation, the only possibility is to call a night shift that will charge you 350 kr (+/- 38€) to come and see what the matter is... More

Both the bed and room prices are really low, and the location is nice. However, there are lots of downsides, firstly there're locks inside the shared rooms, so if someone locked the door from the inside you won't be able to get in even if you have the card key... Secondly, all the beds are facing each other, my six-people... More

We were in a seven bed room with girls and it was clean when we got there. No problems with bugs thank goodness. The common kitchen was nice and had the pots, pans, plates. The boys in our group was able to walk to the market and have pasta night. It's by the Metro which is a stop away from... More

My daughter was also there in mid August for the study abroad program. She was the first to find the bed bugs in the middle if the night. She didn't get much sleep that week and slept in the hall most nights. The Unuversity did contact the professor and suggested the switch to another location but there wasn't anything close... More

Daughter's University study abroad group stayed recently. Location was convenient but the "extra" guests - bed bug infestation was just down right disgusting! Several students had multiple bites. No other rooms were available to move them to. Nothing done to rooms first day reported, supposedly fumigated next day, a few beds bedding were changed but not all. Despite being told... More

The location of the hostel is very good! shopping areas very close, metro is just a few steps away and train station close as well. The rooms were clean and nice equipped. we wanted to stay there for 2 nights but had a problem with our booking and the staff was not that friendly and helpful to find a solution...

Been there for 3 nights in November 2013. Excellent location, almost everything you should visit is near. Not very comfortable rooms, but for a 2 persons is enough (we took 1/2 room with private bathroom). Heating is satisfactory. You have hot water all the time. In shortly, for a weekend tourists it is perfect. The only bad thing we experienced... More

We took a room for 4 people, it had a private toilet but the shower was shared with the other rooms in the floor. Overall it was clean and silent. Breakfast was really bad, and the free wifi internet worked ok. Walking-distance from the train station and center.

We were on the visit to Stockholm and we were looking out for cheap hostel for one night stay. My friends stayed in another hostel as they did not get the rooms; hence I stayed alone. The good thing is the location: it is right there in the heart of city (Luntmakargatan). After booking they provide you with the code... More
