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.

Nice and practical location: The hostel is situated about 5 minutes distance from Arlanda Express. The personnel is very friendly, rooms are clear and the pop art style from 50s is very attractive for me.

This was a pretty good hostel! It was a very large space and the bathrooms were quite clean which was a great plus. Me and my friends really enjoyed the free pasta which we made for dinner one of the nights we stayed there.

Overall, I would recommend this hostel to people who are ok spending a couple of days with not the greatest sleep, but want to take advantage of the location and community. Location: the hostel is located in the heart of Stockholm, and 5 minutes away from the central train station, so arriving and departing goes without a hassle. You are... More
