That was a great stay at yours. Thank you for everything and especially hosting me when I've been looking for accommodation in Stockholm. Last night was on Sunday. Had a great experience.
A great place to stay and socialize and the cooking lesson for Swedish meatballs was fun and delicious! Highly recommend this hostel!
a nice hostel to stay , everything is fine, great facilities and good value of money. Highly recommended!
Great hostel, worth the price, perfect place if you travel by yourself too.
Really nice hostel and in a great location - easy to find! the cycle tour was awesome, and reasonably priced! Showers were lovely too!
An amazing hostel! It is great value for money for an expensive city - don't hesitate - book! Great location! A very funky hostel. Super clean and tidy. The beds are extremely comfy. Free hair dryers, pasta in the kitchen, printing, laundry, wifi .The facilities are amazing too, great kitchen with fridges for every room, computers and cool common area, showers are great! I meet some awesome people here and only stayed for 2 nights - I wish I could have stayed longer!
The place is great! the only negative thing I could say is that the room was empty (gamla stan), just a bed and a chair, no mirror, nothing to put our clothes on or in, nothing on the walls...

Pros: The public area is very spacious. Staff are helpful. Location is good. Cons: Not able to understand why shoes are not allowed inside, you walk with bare feet and after a while you get dust and sand full of you feet. Toilet is smelly, bathroom is meanly furnished. What 's worse is the other guys in there are not friendly at all, whether in public area or in the dorm...
I appreciated that the hostel took the time to organize events, however I was disappointed in the bar crawl. The lady who took us around was relatively new, and hopefully it will get better in the future, but I felt that it could have been better executed. The hostel facilities were fine, and lots of areas to get to know people. You can't wear shoes inside, however the front desk didn't tell me this when I came in so I was unfortunately yelled at by one of the cleaners.
A good choice, but with some flaws. There was a severe shortage of powerpoints in rooms. There were plenty in the common area, but it's been quite a long time since I've been to a hostel that doesn't have a socket for every bed. The showers weren't exactly in convenient locations. The staff seemed nice but it's a large hostel so you're not going to get the same front desk service as in a small hostel. Overall, very clean and functional, and located conveniently near train/bus station.
Great hostel, enjoyed our stay. thanks
Great hostel, the staff was great. It's decorated very nicely and has a cool/funky groove to it. Wifi is readily available and theres plenty of rom for people to chill. Free pasta for cooking and just a generally fun vibe!
Probably the best hostel I've stayed at. They've got a great courtyard and a big kicthen. Also they've got computers at your disposal and if needed you can print important documents. all of the facilities are good and clean, they've got lockers so bring your own padlock and all your stuff will be safe (or buy one at the hostel). The staff is very friendly and super helpful. All in all, it's worth the extra few euros.
The staff was very friendly. I liked that they gave a tour. The bathrooms and restrooms were very small. Rooms were clean but bathrooms needed more cleaning.

Was the best hostel I've ever stayed in, kitchen was really well organized there were lots of great communal areas and activities every night so perfect for the solo traveller only problem was it was booked out when I came back to Stockholm!
Excellent Hostel best beds I've ever slept in!! Cool vibe and great facilities
Really enjoyed our stay here! The staff were very helpful, the room was great and the people we met were friendly. I would recommend this hostel to anyone.
Not in the old town but still not far. A nice place with such low price in Stockholm
Great facilities, especially the patio that is really enjoyable, good location, 7 mins walking distance from the central train station, clean, nice staff. Definitely one of my Top 5 hostels I have done so far.
