Our stay was not as pleasant as we had hoped for, as we were given a room with no window. Nobody did notify in advance of this fact and we were basically given a room which should be a basement. The ventilation system in the room/basement was also so loud that it was very difficult to fall asleep. To be... More

Small but fully equipped place. Exceptional internet (15mbps download). Fully equipped kitchen and a very nice common area next to the kitchen downstairs. Rooms were well prepared but bed sheets were not included in the price though. Showers area is well prepared and on the 2 times I used it, there was hot water at all time. The reception was... More

A hostel situated really close to the city centre with helpful and friendly owners. Extremely clean with an amazing kitchen and sitting room. The rooms are really well decorated. Cheap for Stockholm :P. You need to have your own sheet and lockers or else you pay a small amount of money.

I cannot stress out more how wonderful this hostel was when I was visiting Sweden. It wasn't just affordable, it was clean and the location of this hostel was perfect since there are supermarkets and bars around the area. I've also met a couple of friends here as well, if anyone is traveling alone.

We had a twin room which was lovely and quaint, comfy beds, more than enough space. Like all Swedish hostels you have to rent bedding (65sek per person). Good facilities - kitchen was fully equipped and easy to cook your own meals. However, walls are very thin. You can also hear the floorboards creak whenever someone walks by your room... More

Great that you liked our rooms. Sometimes certain "noise" transports in an old build from the 18th century. For that purpose we have earplugs in the reception. Sorry to hear that you had to wait for reception staff. Normally our emergency phone number can help with all type of questions outside opening hours. More

This is a great hostel with proper kitchen and dining area they have showers downstairs, which I like because you're not making noise in room and steaming up the place! The kitchen is great all mod cons and the dining area is nice and cosy. Only draw back is the reception is only open certain hours but it's easy to... More

Its easy to get, was quiet throughout my stay, and its definitely a nice small hostel that is more suited to the quiet types, business travellers or families. It has a charming and comfy basement chill area, and a nice common kitchen area with decent free coffee and tea. However, the WiFi is pretty bad, the beds a bit flimsy... More

Thanks for your feedback, this is the only way to develop ourselves. We have tried to optimized the wifi and it is now working. With regards to pay for bed linen it is very common in Stockholm, I would say most hostels, if not all, have a charge for bed linen. We can keep a lower price and leave it... More

Location is good, you're in a nice central-ish part of Stockholm. The service was a poor at times as they didn't seem to make much effort for us although was nice to show us luggage room when we arrived 3 mins late for check in. Room was decent size, beds okay and wifi was adequate. Toilet sufficed, didn't use shower.
