The best that the hostel offers is the location, in the old town , Gamla Stan. I would stay there again because of it. We were 4 people, so we could take a room for us and nobody else. The room is small, but ok. There are only 3 showers in each bathroom, and just 1 toilet inside each bathroom... More

I stayed 12 nights in the hostel. I initially booked it because it was the cheapest option in town, but I was really happy to see how nice the place looked, and how clean it was. The staff was very friendly as well and very helpful. I was in Stockholm for work, so I loved the free wifi in the... More

We stayed here in September for 4 nights. This place was absolutely riddled with bed bugs! There were so many that you could find them even with the lights on in the day. When we complained they moved us to a different room but then proceeded to put new people in our old room! Part of the problem is that... More

Firstly, absolutely great location. I was in a 6 bedroom dorm for the first night of my stay but someone complained of bed bugs in the room so I was moved to a cosy 4 bed dorm on the second night. Really comfortable nights sleep throughout my stay. Long and dimly hallways make this place lack character so along with... More

This hostel is in a great location, walking distance to all the shops, the centre of town and sights. Its underground and the 4 bed room has a very cool feel (looks like you're in an igloo) only issues there aren't any windows it can be a little claustrophobic and there aren't any powerpoints near the top bunks. So you... More

There were lots of bed bugs. I got completely bitten. The worst hostel I have ever been. Reception was closed during the night and no one could solve my problem during the night. Also very unsafe, there is no access control

The main thing was that there are barely any windows/daylight so it just doesn't feel very nice. The women's bathroom only has 1 toilet and 3 showers, 1 without a shower curtain and 1 mirror. Could be a lot better! Also, not enough plugs in the rooms and not enough utensils in the kitchen. Check in closes at 6pm and... More

The hostel was in a great location, right in the middle of Gamla Stan with easy access to the train/bus terminals. The rooms for 4 were lovely (my friends had a 4) I had a room of 6 which was ok but there wasn't much room. The beds were good, though top bunk was very high! The bathroom was very... More

Nice hostel but don't count on being able to get into the kitchen in the morning. They claim that the kitchen and commons room open at 7:00, but both mornings I stayed here I was still waiting for someone to open things up after 8:30 am. Other guests wandered by, shrugged their shoulders, and gave up. It's a hassle if... More

Clean, helpful staff, excellent value for money, kitchen is clean, bathroom is ok :) We stayed there for one week. Location is in the Old Town, that was good because it is the center of Stockholm. If I ever return to Stockholm I'll definitely go there. Only thing that I did't like were mixed rooms, but rooms are up to... More
