The hostel is in the middle of the Old Town, which is a perfect location. Nevertheless, we waited several times for the reception to open, the bathrooms were dirty, some of us did not have bed linen even if they were supposed to. The dorm is okay, avoid the beds close to the door because you always have people going... More

The location of the hostel couldn't be better, right in the heart of Old Town, less than 5 minutes from the Royal Palace and major attractions. It doesn't have an actual kitchen which disappointed my group because we were going to try and save money by making our own food versus eating at cafés and bistros. The wifi doesn't work... More

Barhrooms are so dirty (flooding on the floor) and small. Rooms were ok although a lot of people in the same dorm. Breakfast was right and personal of reception correct but could be more helpful with guests. The worst was a disco just downstairs of hostel. So, there were a lot of noise and people shouting until late.

This hostel change the place/build. It's completely different, you can see by the photos. The photos don't are updated. The hostel don't have a living room anymore. The kitchen is not the same of the photo, If you are thinking in to cook, forget. Don't have laundry. Don't have any responsible during the night.

Great hostel, great people, great city ! I absolutely loved it there ! If you choose to stay in this hostel you will be in the old city and very close of everything that you will need to see (and also close of the train station), the staff is very nice and helpful plus coffee/tea is free ! ;)

For an expensive town like Stockholm it was pretty ok, very central (2 minutes to the Royal Palace) and easy to reach from the central station. Breakfast is really basic and wifi is not working very well I have ot admit. Pros is that they have a 24h reception and a pretty big kitchen.

the stuff is really nice, but there are just a few toilets and showers. the kitchen is really small and the wifi doesn't really work. the beds are squeaking a lot...so it's hard to come home by night without waking up the others in the room. nicely located in the center.

Good situation, big kitchen which is very useful for such an expensive town. The rooms are good and there are enough bathrooms even though they're not very hygienic. There's a free breakfast but it's not really good. The best idea is to top it with your own food.

Reception is only 9-5 What is the point. I was locked out of my room for 3 hours, hot, exhausted and pissed off. Sterile environment, hot rooms, no charm. Definitely not worth it. Decent location though!
