This is a great option. The price includes the possibility to enjoy tea and coffee, as well as provided for the guests to cook pasta. There is fully equipped kitchen and large dining room, where to spend their free time. Good breakfast, which is offered at a relatively low price. Responsive staff. Lockers are extra and are available only to... More

We spent 6 days in Stockholm and nobody came to clean the room or at least take the garbage out. Plus, there was no hot water for 2 days. I must say, the location is not bad and so is the price but I would find better if not Mudsummer visitor crowds.

(+) Great location! Everything in walking distance if you are a tourist visiting Stockholm. I arrived after the reception's closing time but everything was arranged well so I didn't have any trouble getting in and to my room. The room was clean and not too small; the bed was comfortable.

Quite a good value for money, staff was great and very helpful. Good location close to the metro line. The only drawback was the rooms equipment - looked quite old, requires renovation. I would recommend this hostel for people who require not too much for a good price in this expensive country.

Staying there with my family we chose a room with bathroom. In fact the room had a total of 6 beds. The place is very clean and seem to be well run. There is lift to the floors. There is a communal kitchen on the ground floor that we did not use. For some strange reason only one of the... More

Good place for a weekend to stay. Breakfast is cheap and the dorms are a good size. Cleaners are a bit sloppy but the hostel is in a good location and very convenient. Should be a bit more staff there but otherwise it's all you need for a weekend trip.

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.
