On the good side, the place is really central, with a nice café underneath. 5 min walk from slussen and 5/10 min walk from the shop area. 15min walk from central station. Supermarkets close by. Loads of restaurant (of which most of them overpriced, like most everything in Stockholm). There is also a vapiano right above the closest metro station.
The place is really clean. No particular negative comments on the toilets and showers.
We had a twin room. Price was shocking for a 6m2 bedroom without breakfast. We should have gone for an hotel.
Finally the worst part: the noise. Basically in the evening there is no control at all. If you are unlucky, it can be a huge mess with incredible noise. This I will always remember.
So basically only a good place for 20yo students going to stockholm to go out and get drunk.
Oh I remember this is an hostel...but well I did other hostel in several cities which were a million time better.
