“Very good for hostel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

In the pros side it has a kitchen with everything you could need that you could use it for free!This is something very good because prices if you want to eat in Sweden are really expensive!Also it has some computers with internet that you could use also for free.Moreover,it offers breakfast included in the price that is something very rare for hostels.Also the location was really good.
On the other side,the room(i shared a room with my boyfriend) the walls are really thin(i could hear what was happening in the next rooms ) and it has no window.So, it if you were claustrophobic you would definitely have huge problem .Also,the tv was broken,and they did nothing to fix it,and they never cleaned our room(we stayed in this hostel for 4 nights).
Besides that,i thing tha for what a hostel could offer you, i would recommend it.

+: location, common areas and many showers

-: extremely hot rooms w no windows or aircon. Our rooms were located in the basement right next to the female wc and showers (nr 10), which meant that every 2 min (litterally) someone would slam the door to the wc. Didnt sleep at all. Also the 2nd night we slept w the door open to the hall way due to lack of air. Will never go back.

Room Tip: Dont book here

Good points:
- Plenty of hot water in the showers
- Modern feel, good decor
- Clean, spacious kitchen
- Fantastic location
- Free Wi-Fi
Bad points:
- Limited kitchen hours (closed 10pm to 7am - more likely 7:30am)
- Bathroom cleanliness is hit and miss
- Freezing cold rooms (in June)
- No real socialising space, no sofas or chill-out areas

Basically, this hostel could be so much better if it just sorted a few things out. The kitchen is great, but if you want a sandwich after a late night, or an early cup of tea, you're out of luck. It's locked. Actually, it's supposed to open at 7am but it's 7:25 now and it's still not open. Also, when it is open, the mornings are dominated by hostel staff making breakfast for the guests who get it included.
The bathrooms, there's a lot of space in the showers, but the toilets are very cramped. I'm only 5"3 and my knees were nearly touching the door. The showers had a really bad urine smell one day as well. But the rest of the hostel is kept very clean.
There's free wi-fi and free computers, a good area for eating with plenty of tables, but no chill-out area with sofas to hang out and meet other guests.
And no curtains in the rooms, so in summer you only get about 3 hours or darkness.

Nice place with good design, modest breakfasts and lack of windows in the rooms.
Even though, we very very satisfied with doubles and wi-fi works great

Room Tip: not on the ground floor

This hostel is clean, modern, the staff are friendly. The breakfast is great. The only downside is the lack of bathrooms and the walls are very very thin, so fingers crossed you dont have a noisey neighbour! Overall a nice place to stay.

We stayed in a double room for a few nights - it seemed to be the only affordable and clean choice with a private room that we could find.
But, with no windows in our room, it felt really small, and the ceiling's really low. It was also in the summer and got unbelievably stuffy in there, since there was no fan and no way to control the central air conditioning. We ended up propping our door open overnight, but the hall just outside our room was also really stuffy. We borrowed a fan from the very helpful staff for the next nights and that was much nicer.

Other than the room, the design of the lobby and space was stylish, nice, and the location is excellent -- walking distance to many things.
There only seemed to be one bathroom in the front lobby for everyone upstairs, and the floor was constantly wet, but it wasn't super busy.

I'd recommend it as a budget choice, but warn tall or claustrophobic people. It's not a loud hostel with rowdy party-goers, so that was nice, but the walls are definitely thin.
