One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Clean rooms, equipped with individual lockers and each bed has its own light and outlet. Kitchen is large and fully equipped, and even though I didn't take some, I could see that the free pasta was very much appreciated. Great common areas, good computers. Atmosphere is great and for some reason it was really easy to meet new people :) Friendly and helpful staff too! Still a bit pricey, should include bed linen or breakfast. (but would return anyway!)
Great stay and the staff were all really helpful and friendly. Especially the girl with the bangs and the brunette guy with the beard. Always had smiles on their faces and answered any questions I had and showed me new places to check out. Also very close to to train which was great.
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff,
Fantastic hostel! Very hip looking, breakfast was great and lots of social areas to hang out and meet with people. Also had a great kitchen. Staff gave a tour of the building when I checked in and had tons of extra activities! I did the bike tour which was lots of fun!!
Location = awesome! 5-10 minute walk from the old town and Drottninggatan. Staff were awesome at accommodating my needs including extending my stay, translating many things for me as well as directions and suggestions. Do a wicked pub crawl and lots of cool optionals. Chilled out common room where I made many life long friends. Beds are sooo comfy and facilities and rooms are A+. A little on the expensive side, but that's Sweden for you and this hostel is well worth it!

Awesome hostel in a great location within walking distance of virtually anything. They hosted a really fun pub crawl on Thursdays that was a great way to meet people and see some local night life spots. I would definitely recommend staying here if your headed to Stockholm :)
Not much choice of breakfast foods. A very limited range of things were included in the standard package. Other hostels offer more of an open buffet style for the same price.
Can't fault this hostel. It was the last visit on our 6 months trip after around 20 hostels and certainly finished with a bang. There has been a huge amount of though go into decorating this place with a really clear theme in mind. Love the cheap breakfast, the sauna, the many lounge/common rooms and the excellent kitchens. Met many cool people here and to be honest this hostel has the highest security out of any we visited through Europe. Highly recommended.
Great place, one of the best hostels I've stayed
Best hostel I've stayed at. The free pasta was great for if you're on a budget, the ability to rent a bike right at the hostel was awesome, and the social atmosphere was my favorite part. Every night people would be talking to each other—you couldn't leave there without making at least one friend. The staff were very friendly and eager to help, & the location was nice as well—across from a beautiful park and not too far from a main shopping avenue and liquor store. I'd definitely stay again!
Great hostel with friendly staff

One slightly unfriendly lady in the staff when checking in, but other than that it's a great hostel
The 2 male staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful, not just to me but went out of their way to make other guests comfortable and informed. Showers/toilets that I used were always cleaned. upon my arrival, girl at reception informed me there were no pillow cases "you'll just have to put your sheet over that too" actually was an inconvenience- I wasn't even told I can pick one up the following day when more available.
Very good hostal. The location is perfect and the facilities are very good. I totally recommend to stay in this hostel
Great hostel, was very well fitted out with very good facilities. It's a bit tedious with the daily rotating series of security codes to get in, and was a bit quiet when I visited, but otherwise, the place was great and in a very convenient location.
Good hostel. Nice location, free tea throughout the day and pasta. The only complaints I have are breakfast isn't included and wasn't worth buying, the free sauna doesn't get very hot, and they don't include bed sheets in the price.
Great location! The hostel itself was nice. I enjoyed the atmosphere and made a few friends! I arrived on Friday and was surprised to see that there were no pub crawls or any kind of activity but a breakfast thing at 1am... Need more nightly activities to meet more people!
First ever hostel and this place definitely set high standards for all the rest! It's a short walk from the train station so very conveniently located. Staff were super friendly and they had daily events such as movie nights and the Swedish meatball experience. I was a solo traveler and met so many people that I still keep in contact with, loved it here!
We had a lovely stay at city backpackers. The staff were very friendly and the facilities were great and clean. Our room was also very nice and there were a lot of areas to hang around.
