One of my favorite hostels I've stayed in during my 5 week trip! I love the "no shoes" policy- it feels very homey. I made a ton of friends in my two nights there (I was traveling alone) and had a great time. I also highly recommend the cooking classes they offer-- the one I did was a little pricey but a great way to meet new friends, build community, and learn how to make a traditional Swedish meal.

I loved staying here, close to the city centre, once you finds it, everywhere else fall into place, and is easy to get back to. The atmosphere is the hostel is really good, I got along with my room mates, the common room, when you had a few people there, was great craic, the outside drinking area was really good too. This hostel uses a code for the entrance door and another for the room you stay in, once you get used to it, it's fine, If I'm coming back to Sweden, I would definitely stay here!

Hello and thank you for the input. We have a newly opened section with private showers that I am afraid you missed when you stayed here. Next time around, make sure we show you where they are. Welcome back! /Ellinor CBP

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 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.
