I was here for two weeks and had a really great experience. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is great. The buses and trams make it easy to travel the city.

Everything is good. But when I left I forgot to ask for the deposit money. I feel sad about that.

The hostel is not near the centre of town. A bus or tram ride in taking about 15 minutes. The rooms seem small for the number of occupants. Just the beds. No table or chair to sit at. A TV there but the lounge area, and kitchen areas are small. The showers and toilets are situated at the end of the kitchen and not close to the dorms. Staff were helpful and friendly. I would look elsewhere next time before coming back here. It would not be my first choice again.

A great hostel with good beds, great kitchen and excellent staff. There was always someone on hand to help out and give advice on things to do. About a 20 minute walk from the city centre or a very short tram ride. Would recommend and stay there again.

This hostel is more of a hotel with one dorm room for females and one for males. It's spread across three different buildings. Interesting mix of people from young backpackers to older couples. Decent kitchen and really spacious bathrooms. Really close to supermarkets and bars and a great cafe at the end of the road. Very close to the tram to get into the city center & down the road from Slottsskogen (massive park with a zoo in it). There isn't really a common area in the building I was in.

I was in this hostel just for weekends. Cons ; Location is not good but acceptable, 30 minutes walk from station. Pros ; There are several supermarkets near the hostel. Staff was nice,even giving me a medicine when I told him I had a headache. Toilet and kitchen were clean. housekeeper cleans everyday. Easy to get along with others.

Loved this hostel. Really welcoming staff and good crowd of other guests. The kitchen is very homely, so it's easy to self-cater. Sweden has some funny rules around buying alcohol - don't expect to get anything but beer after 3pm! But supermarket is very close. Breakfast in hotel side also caters to dairy-free dietary needs (thankfully). Sleeping arrangements are clean - sheets and towels have to be rented, but not expensive - people seem generally respectful. All positive!

The dorms were nice but the kitchen area stank weird. The stuff was super helpful!

Thank you for the praise! The smell came from food in the roof space. Some people have an odd sense of humor! It does not smell anymore! Best regards the Staff

Everyone from the staff to the other guests were amazingly friendly. As a single female traveller, I never felt unsafe, and actually made several friends in the week I was there. The lounge area next to the kitchen was a perfect place to hang out with a book, or to chat with new friends. It was lovely staying there, and I'd stay there again!

It's about a half hour walk south of the centre but a stone's throw from the park and natural history museum. You get the sheets for free if you book a dorm room but towels are still an extra 15SEK. Nice set up though, I'd stay here again.

Overall it was pretty good. The 16 bed male dorm wasn't as bad as I would have thought - especially if you get a top bunk so you can close the curtain and have privacy. The bed itself was comfortable and I had no problems sleeping. They also have a pretty good kitchen/eating area, and lots of bathrooms.

really nice clean hostel, very calm almost as a hotel, but it was exactly what i needed at that time! Don't expect a lot of parties/ways to meet young people here, but the staff was supernice and helpful!!

Reception lady was really lovely and helpful. Other than a lack of forks in the kitchen when we first arrived we had no issues at all and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
