It's kind of under the ground so most of the rooms don't have a window. But it's very convenient and comfortable staying there. The atmosphere is good and friendly, you meet people from different countries...

It is located within an acceptable walking distance from city centre or otherwise you have a metro station just 2 minutes away. I took a private room; which had a nice decoration and a comfortable bed and a TV but it was...

My friend and I stayed 3 nights in a 12 bed dorm. I was really impressed with this place. The beds have individual lights and there were plenty of electrical sockets throughout the room. I rented sheets here for a small fee. The Wifi worked well throughout. I loved the way everything was decorated. Very funky cool. I found the...

I stayed for a week in July. When I booked online, I did not realize this was a basement hostel. There were windows in the eight-bed dorm I stayed in which helped to a degree, but the air did have that basement quality. I give credit to the owners for going a long way in trying to mitigate that musty...

Staying in SoFo & Medborgarplatsen

Neighborhood Profile
SoFo & Medborgarplatsen
Throughout the last decades these neighborhoods transformed from a rather quiet residential area into the birthplace of Swedish hipsterism and became Sweden’s main hub for new fashion labels, independent coffee shops and innovative gastropub concepts. Despite their extreme transformation, SoFo (South of Folkungagatan) & Medborgarplatsen managed to hold on to their residential charm and quietness and became one of the most sought-after places to live among young people in Stockholm. This neighborhood is also home to Sweden’s highest student hall, Skrapan, which used to be the head office of the tax authorities and now combines a mix of student hall and shopping mall with a bar on top.
