its very close to the central station and many nice places to go grab a bite. The price is incredibly good ( in 2 nights I think I have spent less than 300 SEK, more or less 30 €), and the bathroom is quite clean, but the kitchen is tremendously small, and bed linen is not the cleanest in the...

We stayed here 2 nights in a 10 person room. Set up our beds & one of us after about 30 min. got bitten by Bed Bugs. Swapped with a spare bed for the night, notified staff & they apologized & gave free accommodation for entire stay. But would obviously rather not being bitten. We had other people in room... More

We stayed there few nights in a double room. The room had a bed, an old chair and one small table. No TV but wifi which worked best at the lobby area... A shower yes and a window. So if you are looking for a plc to stay for few nights at the very heart of Stockholm, this is a... More

Very well located, about a 20 minute walk from Central Station. We booked a family room with bathroom. Clean, comfortable, just for sleeping. Lots of young, friendly people. Be aware reception is not 24/7. Free wifi, and you can use a communal kitchen if you travel on a budget. Overall, excellent quality for the price.

Booked a single en-suit room, which was a lot cheaper than most hotels in the area Staff were helpful, breakfast was reasonable, room/bathroom clean, wifi fine, etc If you're used to >3*, best avoid, this hostel is a budget option I'd definitely stay here again, nice and central, 5 mins walk from central station

You get what you pay, and in that sense it shouldn't have been a surprise to find what we found in this hostel, but still it was. When you read in the Lonely Planet Guide that the standard of accommodation in Stockholm is kind of high, you expect a sort of average hostel, but this was less than that. We... More

After normal business hours it is impossible to contact any hostel employe. I stayed in one of the larger community rooms. The hostel booked more people than there were beds available, key cards stopped working, and another guest had some of their belongings stolen. It was impossible to contact any employees after business hours by telephone when these problems occurred... More

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
