Not a recommended place to stay. I took a bunk in the 28 bed dorm. That floor was equipped of one bathroom, namely one toilet and one shower for 28 guests. I decided to shorten my stay there and took a cabin at the youth hostel/boat across the street.

We just left here so this is fresh in my mind. We stayed in room 211, a private double with en suite so we had no problems with shared bathrooms or cleanliness in the dorms. The room was quiet overlooking the side alley. I thought it was overpriced for what it was but it included breakfast and Stockholm is expensive... More

At this hostel, you get what you paid for. The positives - Fantastic location - Clean IKEA furniture/bedding - Free linen - Nice bright airy kitchen upstairs - Long, hot showers - Nice enough free breakfast The negatives - No lockers. I found this ridiculous and several people had their stuff stolen while I was there. There was a communal... More

I've been there before. It has very good location in the old town. But this time it was so dirty. Beds were full of hair, one bed had some blood stains and the bathrooms were full of hair and the ground was disgusting and muddy. I get chills even thinking about it. I travel often to Stockholm but surely will... More

Extremely simple but cute hostel, with very clean rooms, kitchens and bathrooms. Surprisingly great breakfast for a hostel, with a wide choice of food. The staff is extremely nice. Perfect location, with supermarkets, shops, bars and reasonably-priced restaurants neraby. Be careful with your belongings, however. Even if you can only enter your room with a keycard, somebody made it into... More

This hostel , with the exception of the location and reasonable price, is not good because 1) WiFi is not available in all are as the web site said, is totally false. In my room, which has a side entrance, the WiFi is in and out and the signal is so weak, it just stopped working. It's false advertising. It... More

Before we got there, we'd read reviews about bed bugs at this hostel. Thankfully, our two beds didn't have any. But also, as soon as we checked in a guy in our room just found out he'd been robbed, his laptop and money had been taken from his bag. Lots of people mentioned this too, and yes this isn't the...

The Hostel is in a really magic location and all the facilities are excellent... Moreover the guys on reception were truly nice and helpful. A small flaw are the bathrooms, which are very small but in any case clean and efficient.

We left our things inside our bags, since the hostel doesn't provide a locker, and when we came back our equipments wasn't there. And after all, they that this kind of things happens and they couldn't do anything about it. Horrible, and te room was really full and small, doesn't waste your money on this hostel.
