Free wifi everywhere, but a bit weak in the room I stayed in (Helgeandsholmen). My only complaint is that I checked in late and... More

It is in a great location, you only need about 2 minutes to be in the primary shopping area of the city and around a 10 minute walk later you are in the beautiful old city. The 'no shoes' rule inside the hostel made it feel homely instantly and also the... More

Awesome place to hang out. You will meet a lot of strangers and future fellow partners. The hostel team is great. Everything is well organized. Cannot complain about anything. Sauna, kitchen, free pasta, what else. If you want to find a great place go there!

Friendly and service minded staff. Cosy breakfast location. Internet + ticket printing facility. Room clean and OK. Fine shower. Near to city center and central station. No idea why you should go elsewhere.

My friend and I travel together a lot and planned out our Stockholm trip for the few days we were there, but whenever we asked the staff for a suggestion about anything we might not see in our tour book the answer was pretty unhelpful. Like hey, We finished what we had planned a little early, anything you think we... More
