I visited the hostel when I was bikepacking in Sweden. Everything worked, the hostel is good value in the city center next to many shops and restaurants. Nice breakfast for 60 kr (no warm food but still good). Staff very friendly. Would come here again.

Stayed here for one night with 12 school kids en route to a DofE expedition. Clean, warm and tidy. Ideal for a one or two night stop over. Staff were very helpful especially as some of us had forgot bedding and did a cheap deal for us

It is in the city centre, so it was quite easy to find. The receptionist was very helpful and the rooms are clean and comfy.

The microwaves and fridges have also obviously not been cleaned in a long while.
