“The big kötbullar experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2010

A very nice, CLEAN and friendly hostel, which is very well organized and offers the traveller who wants to meet up other people great opppurtinities. So check out the city bike tour, including lunch, or gather around with a bunch of ppeople in the commom kitchen and cook kötbullar wirh lingonberries and several sidedishes. Its was just great, thanks a lot!

This was a great hostel. It is well located (right near the central train station) and a great place to stay and meet people. The rooms are clean and modern, with lockers under the beds for each person. The common area has a kitchen as well as a TV and computers. There is free wifi throughout the hostel. There's a great outdoor patio area for when it's not raining, and a cute little cafe with decent prices. My only complaint is that the bathrooms and showers aren't great (they are functional, though).

Very nice, modern and inventive, yet simple decoration, starting from the sheets. They have thought of the customer in many details. Hostel has sauna, washing machine, girl dorms, guided tours, information of clubs available and a good location not far from the Central station and the shopping district. I really hope that they would make a chain of their concept and found other City Backpacker's Hotels in other European cities as well!!!!

It´s a really great hostel. The Hostel is very near from the Central - Station. Only 10min. to walk. They have a great living room with a nice atmosphere. You can rent a bike for free!:)It is possible to make your own food in a big kitchen.

WLAN for free! :)

A another peron told me that´s the best hostel in sweden.
When I go again to stockholm I to decide for that Hostel! :)

Sunny greetings from

Great hostel,friendly staff,lovely cafe insitu,free wifi that you could access anywhere in the building and they had computers you could use in the lounge.They also provided free pasta as eating in scandinavia is expensive.
We were staying in the basement dorms,only downside was the toilets, each dorm room had a shower room, and there were only 2 toilets that were in the lounge.
Otherwise i would definately stay here again
