We really liked this hostel. It's really comfortable, clean and friendly. It felt like home from home. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious and the no shoe policy ensured the floors remained clean and worked really well.

Since my stay was short I was looking for a convenient place to stay in a good location with working wifi. I found this hostel fulfilled all that but after reading the reviews on hostelworld I would maybe have expected more. The female dorm was quite basic in the end, I've seen better at the same price. I really appreciated the recently remade private showers though, hairdryers are available too. The kitchen seemed well-equipped and well organized as well. Cozy reception area and patio!

Very nice hostel with excellent facilities in a very convenient location in Stockholm. Staff were generally friendly and it was very easy to meet other travelers thanks to the shared kitchen and lounge spaces. I would definitely stay there again.

Very good hostel perfectly located near both the train station and the old town. Staff was friendly and helpful. The place was clean, and quiet at night. They arrange various tours and activities, of which I only tried the pubcrawl, which was quite good. When you check out, you get a free checkout candy!

Amazing hostel. Unreal atmosphere, great people, great location and there's free pasta to make for yourself! Rented a couple longboards with a new friend and saw the city, which is something I haven't seen at any other hostel and made it even that much better for me.

I can't say anything bad about this hostel...tge best I've ever stayed in. Great mattress and comfy sheets for starters. Many common areas mean you'll make lots of new friends especially if you're travelling alone. Hostel staff are more than attentive and organize many activities including kayaking, pub tours, bike rides. I 2 as sad to leave as I had a great time. Well done to all the staff!!!!!

The hostel was quite dirty all the time. Fridges were greasy and it was kind of a challenge to cook a proper meal without giving up by saying... "This is disgusting" Security was great. Atmosphere was low. The hostel area is quite a large room so atmosphere is hard to get. People sit far away from each other.
