Pleasant overnight experience-I wish they had wifi in the room and not just the common area though..

Nice hostel located in the heart of Stockholm. Staff seemed to be annoyed by guests though. Beds have been used a bit too long and were making noises if you changed your position. The kitchen has basic equipment, pasta and sauce is fine but anything more advanced cannot be prepared due to lack of tools and pots. Facilities are relatively clean as the staff is constantly mopping. Good value for money, especially in the smaller dorms.

Average hostel. It's really big and spread out. The rooms and beds are really nice and spacious although there is only ONE toilet and ONE shower on each floor to share between probably 15+ people. I found myself scrambling from floor to floor just to use the bathroom. The wifi works great in the dorms on the first floor. The kitchen is nice and big. They offer breakfast at a decent price. Buffet style. Hostel seemed pretty clean.

Satisfactory for its price, but it should be noted that it's not one of the more social hostels if you're a solo traveller looking to interact. Paid breakfast is kind of a let down but counterattacked by free pasta!! I enjoyed it.

Very low quality hostel. Bunk beds are squeaky, staff is rude. Ok for a one night stay, but I wouldn't recommend more...

Stayed in one of the private twin rooms for two nights. Everything was clean. The bathroom had underfloor heating. Staff were friendly and helpful. Didn't seem to be particularly social but we weren't looking to meet new people as we were visiting a friend in Stockholm. Also location was very near transport links and shopping and not far from old town. Only negative is that they charged us 50 kronors to use the luggage room after we checked out, never experienced that before!

Looks nothing like the description. No wifi throughout building even tho that's what it says on the description. Very quiet, very small. Not the best place to meet people
