the hotel is well located, near the station and the staff was very kindly. But unfortunatly it was far too noisy. There were people who went on spree and shouted just at the door of the room during a large part of the night

All the things are good. Friendly staff, convenient location and clean environment. But bed lien and breakfast are not free of charge. I joined the cooking class which was good. You can taste traditional Swedish food.

The hostel is well run with good securuty; guests need to open two doors before entering their own room. The paid breakfast is good and guets enjoy a $10 kroner off when they check in. The good thing is guests can print their air tickets free. Highly recommended for a stay there.

Great hostel, super friendly staff, very well positioned in the downtown area - close to the central station and many bus routes, perebt for meeting people and partying and you can't beat that price being in Stockholm by far

The staff were very friendly n helpful. The location is great as well. don't go for the breakfast they offer. It's terrible. Th easy showers n toilet could have been better. When I was there the toilet had run out of paper!! And the reception was closed as well. So also carry your own toilet paper! ☺

A very friendly ambiance in this hostel. Employees are very nice and helpful, the location in central Stockholm is nice. It's clean enough, and the breakfast is good! If I ever come back to stockholm, I will definitively stay again in this hostel!

There is a nice and clean Sauna, big kitchen with frigobars and shelfs if you want to save in this expensive city and cook. Clean, friendly staff and free coffee, tea and pasta. Lockers and very secure.
