A 10-15 minute walk from Stockholm C train station with a grocery store a block away. Great location for seeing the city and catching the train to the airport. Staff present during day and very helpful with suggestions & storing luggage. Was thoroughly cleaned everyday though by the next morning, men's bathroom & the kitchen area were needing another cleaning.... More

Pretty nice hostel, close to train station so it's good if you have an early flight. Stayed in 8 bed dorms. Beds are fine, linen was just crispy clean (linen and towel for hire though - 65 SEK), so you'll have a nice sleep if you have nice roommates. Showers and toilets are the best that I saw in hostels... More

If you want to feel like you are loved by the staff who CARES about YOU and will do anything to make your stay comfortable, please STAY HERE! Sometimes hostels don't get the best reputation for being the best place to stay while overseas, but this one proves everyone's theories WRONG! This hostel deserves an award for how well they...

Really convenient location - within ten minutes walk from Central station, and twenty minutes from Old Town. My private room was very clean with a desk, chair and TV. Staff were helpful, and I had no problems whatsoever during my stay. Surprisingly good price for a reputedly expensive city, too.

First and foremost this hostel is in a terrific location, only a ten minute walk from central station and a great jazz bar! Upon our arrival the staff were smiley, friendly and very helpful. The rooms were immaculate, the bedding comfortable and not a squeak was heard throughout the night during our three night stay. The kitchen facilities were clean... More

Ideal location and a great price! Breakfast was basic but nice and I really enjoyed my stay here. I stayed in the private room 1 night and a larger room (8 people) the next night. The private room is not 'private' as it just is a section of the bigger room but you have your own door etc but you... More

The hostel is approx 10 minute walk from Central Station. It is 15 minute walk to the main shopping areas, and 20 minutes walk to bars & clubs. I stayed in a private room (3 people). It was spacious, clean, and had a TV, with free Wifi. The staff are friendly & helpful. There is a spacious kitchen with great... More

Great location in central Stockholm. A short walk to town and most tourist attractions including a metro stop and the central train and bus station. Friendly staff but quite strict rules (literally "no partying" written on the rule cards). Must hire or provide your own linen and towel. Hostel is underground so no natural light in the dorm and a... More

Good, central, safe, easy to reach from rail station. Dorms underground, which is fine by me. In a city like Stockholm that can easily see you watch money fly away...relatively good value. Adjacent local shop and bakery down the street. Somewhere to use as a base for exploring the city and beyond for sure.
