Located just 10 minutes by feet from Central Station, right in the center, this hostel is perfect to visit the city. The staff is friendly and very helpful. :) You have access to washing machines and dryers, and also computers with a printer. The bed was comfy and the place is quiet enough (I admit that I had earplugs though)....

Can't fault it. Location was first class. Staff friendly and the accommodation was social but still very clean. Excellent value for money, Stockholm is a great place. Highly recommended and would stay here on a future visit.

It was a very nice hostel, with nice people who were ready to help. It is clean and there are a lot of sitting areas. The breakfast was really good and so was the WiFi. You have an own fridge with another room and you can hire bikes for a good price.

Really quirky hostel in a prime location. Very friendly staff. Kitchen was clean and well equipped. Lots of social areas to chill out in and a 6bed dorm was very spacious. Highly recommended this hostel.
