I stayed at Skanstulls for three nights, travelling alone. The 4-bed rooms are small and clean, but like most of the hostel, don't get a lot of natural light coming through. The hostel amenities in general are well-maintained, bathrooms and showers were always clean. The staff are some of the friendliest I have come across in a hostel, and are happy to keep your luggage in a locked room before check-in and after check-out if your plans fall outside those hours. There is a common kitchen with a tiny fridge, stove and some basic utensils/crockery, and free tea for all hostel guests.
Each bed in the rooms has a power socket and a bed light. There are individual lockers in each room with padlocks, the keys for which are given to you by the staff along with your room key. There is free WiFi, but it seemed to not be functioning during my time there, it would work only near the reception. Ideally it should work everywhere in the hostel. There are a few communal computers available with internet, and a huge range of pamphlets/maps for Stockholm-based activities.
The hostel is in a great location for travelling into the centre of Stockholm and all around. The area itself is trendy with loads of interesting shops and cafes within walking distance. The Old Town and the ferry docks are a train ride away, that barely takes 10 minutes. Transport to and from the airport is really easy as well, thanks to the Arlanda Express.
