I'm 20, I'm a student in Sweden and I took my mum who is in her 50s. People were very friendly to both of us even though we might not be your traditional hostellers. We took advantage of the free sauna, and if we were to return I'm sure we would take advantage of the bikes and ice skates :)

its very or well organized. Not so high--tec on the everyday solutions, but comfy, smart and with character. It keeps a Stockholm theme combined with hostel(youth)-oriented but all kinds of people can stay here i think. A bit to noisy for some but that is often hostel. Good order and november very calm even if people stay out late. So... More

Large dorm rooms, fantastic shared spaces, private WC and shower rooms. Best hostel I've ever stayed in. Easy to find location - very central. Would happily stay here any time I visit Stockholm. Wish there were more hostels out there like this one.

Good local, good kitchen, clean, but a very young crowd. A little uncomfortable for a 50ish on a travel budget. No bar? such a shame... Had a big 8 bed room in the basement with no window. I liked Stockholm/Scandinavia - never been there - but prefer Germany and other large Euro cities. English widely spoken. Recommended.

I stayed here for one night in a four bed bunk room. The hostel is great ... it's close to the central station, the staff were very helpful and friendly, the wifi was good, there's a free baggage storage room, and the place has a great atmosphere. The rooms were warm, the bed comfortable, the kitchen well stocked if you... More

The hostel is just really well run and in the perfect location. Everything was clean...the staff was great...and the other people staying were very fun/friendly. I highly recommend the hostel hosted pub crawl (hosted by Michael on the night I went). He did a great job getting the group together and it was the perfect kick-off to a Thursday night!... More

Great atmosphere, great people, great location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Large kitchen and common areas, and very clean bathrooms and rooms in general. Only stayed a night, but seemed like a very social hostel, with many people from all over the world staying here, making for some great conversation and socializing. It's located within walking distance to all the... More

Young people welcome you in a very friendly atmosphere. All is cleaned, well organized, stylish and very swedish. I stayed there only for one night, so I could'nt enjoy the afternoon sauna or other facilities but I heartily recommend!

It's simply the best! :-) Clean, stylish, good people, close to the railway station and the center, delicious breakfast, free wi-fi and great infrastructure. I would go there again without any hesitation.
