While studying abroad in London during fall term 2013, two friends and I set out for a 10-day trip through four countries. Our second stop was in Stockholm, Sweden. Stockholm in the fall is beautiful, but I digress. We easily found this cool-looking hostel and were greeted promptly by a friendly staff. We stayed three nights here and it was... More

My family and I stayed in a private room with bath and couldn't have been happier. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. The kitchen was well stocked and common areas were kept clean and it was a joy rubbing elbows with people from around the world.

It was many years ago when I stay at this hostel. It might have changed now but as far I remember we really had fun here. The rooms were very clean. The staff was very kind and the location was convenient. They used to have a common kitchen so you can prepare simple dishes and share with your friends

Had a great stay here even though I wasn't backpacking at the moment. The service was excellent and the breakfast nice. A very good place to stay if you're looking for a backpacking-atmosphere and would like to meet travelling people and do fun activities in the city.

I stayed in 6 hostels during my last Europe trip and this one is at the top of my list. It's got everything you need. Great kitchen, laundry, lounge with a tv and nice Mac computers, an awesome courtyard (they had live music one night I was there), a cafe attached where you can get a nice breakfast, or a... More

Probably not the cheapest one, but a very good one. This place is awesome, an interesting place to get along with new people around the world. It has a big terrace, which can be used in summer, and a living room for colder seasons. It is also as quiet place to rest, surprisingly quiet taking into account the amount of... More

Stayed there for 4 nights in the 6-bedded dorm. Room was really clean and nice though poorly lit. Toilet and washing facilities are conveniently located just in front of the door. Kitchen was also nice though can be quite dirty, messy and very crowded. Location wise it's really great!
