Stayed in a dorm room in July 2014 for two nights. Room was musty, no ventilation, no natural light, and half the lights in the room didn't work either. It had a very bad smell unlike anything I've experienced before (as if it was coming from the walls, not from a person or any body's belongings). When we complained to... More

We spent 1 week in this hostel. This is the worst, I have seen. The showers are horrible, full of hair, dirt, and other things. They don't really clean the showers. We are lucky, we didn't catch anything.

The location of the Hostel is quite excellent in the middle of the old town and everything was functioning properly. With a 24h/reception there was no problem with checking in and out. The breakfast was simple, but since it is included in the price you can't really complain. The wifi was working fine most of the time. I stayed in... More

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
