This is by far the best hostel that I have stayed at. The staff are so helpful and knowledgeable about Stockholm. The hostel is scrubbed top to bottom every day, so it's always very clean. They have activities such as Swedish movie nights, pub crawls (I met the best people!), and viking sauna tours! As a traveler on a tight budget, you'll also love the free pasta provided 24/7! This is a beautiful hostel and hands down my favourite place to stay!

Great Hostel, would definitely stay there again. The rooms are spacious, big lockers and nice Windows. The only downer: you have to pay extra for breakfast and it's really not worth the Money!

A good hostel in all. Great location and a fun group of people staying there. A bit too big and impersonal, but good enough to return and recommend.

I enjoyed staying the this hostel! Nice rooms with security code, a lot of free facilities and activities (free pasta and breakfast can be included for 40 SEK) and very helpful staff! Bring a padlock for lockers in the rooms.

Best hostel I've ever been to. I arrived late at night, the reception was close, but they left me a letter with perfect instructions how to get to my room. The facilities are amazing, the staff was friendly, the bed was very comfortable and the location was great. There's free pasta in the kitchen. No breakfast included though, but you can get a cheap and good one at the café inside the hostel.

Overall fantastic hostel and well deserving of the best hostel in Stockholm. Though situated north of the major attractions (5mins from main station), the hostel is a short walk to sight-seeing attractions and has many bars/restaurants in the area. The hostel itself is in great condition--very new, modern, clean--and full of great amenities (i.e. Sauna, which is highly undervalued!). A definite recommend for any age group, but great for younger crowds looking to interact and meet new people.

I can describe how much I love this place. The location is not that good, it takes 10 min to central station. But the staff was amazing, very helpful and friendly, was trying to help me in every detail. The room was clean, of course you need to bring your own sheet, which is normal in north euro. The hostel is well-designed, and you can enjoy free sauna, you can borrow pair of ice skates for free, you have computer and a clean kitchen here. Love it so much!!

Thank you so much for the kind words! It's true that it takes 10 minutes to walk to the central station, but we are right in the heart of Stockholm, with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops in all directions. Thank you and welcome back! /Ellinor CBP

This hostel was had a superb atmosphere, very modern and styled well with substance. The whole vibe to the hostel was welcoming and unique. The service at the reception was great. The sizeof the hostel is very large, and there are many different places to sit and relax. The kitchen is well equipped with many fridges and cooking appliances (Also free pasta!!). The common room has a TV and lots of comfortable places to sit, also a very big flat screen TV. They offer film nights, and pub crawls. -J

Nice hostel with good facilities and common space, sauna is a big plus! Really creaky beds and small room (6 bed mixed). Wifi quite ok. Terrible pans in the kitchen, some people was also quite messy.. dont know how to properly wash dishes.

Really good place to stay. Staffs are really friendly.

Staff were very helpful and friendly although the hostel was fairly busy so we had to wait a while to be checked in. The twin private room we stayed in was extremely basic, containing just bunk beds and a single wooden chair which meant you had to leave all your belongings on the floor. Despite these minor grumbles the location was great and it was certainly adequate for a short stay.
