I for one am sick and tired of fresh air and sunshine. That's why I'm so glad that the Stockholm Hostel has almost entirely banished them from their premises! The only windows you'll see are at the entrance. The foyer may have natural light but it still does not have fresh air, because the windows don't open and the front door is unlocked only by a 4-digit code.
In the foyer, one can enjoy the aroma of chlorine. This is probably a by-product of cleaning the bathrooms. Yes, unlike many hostels, the bathrooms here are clean.
Since the hostel is built in what appears to be a former indoor car park between 2 large apartment buildings, there are NO windows in the rooms. When we asked about airing out the rooms, the friendly girl at the front desk gave the following helpful advice: "you can prop your door open with a chair for extra ventilation."
4 of us travelling together had a 4-bunk room. Before we went to sleep, we propped the door open. All the doors in the hostel are very, very heavy, and always SLAM unless you hold them back. It was very inconvenient to prop it open. Anyway, we had to close the door when we went to sleep, because people use the hallway all night and the lights are always on there.
At night, the rooms become very hot and stuffy! And since there is no natural light, one never knows what time it is, and it is very hard to wake up.
What kind of hostel has no windows and no fresh air? This one!
