A very decent hostel within a walking distance to the centre, close to the central station and the buses. Fantastic kitchen facilities. Just a good place to stay.

Location was alright. About 15-20 minute walk to city center. Loud annoying squeaky beds. Everything else was good.

Rooms are very nice but watch out for the low ceilings at one end of the room.

Nice spot. Hostels are very expensive here compared to other countries/cities, but that just goes along with Stockholm as a whole. Solid spot but ended up staying out all night and sleeping elsewhere so I can't comment on too much. Basically used this as a spot to shower, change, and keep my stuff—served its purpose very well!

Clean with tight security. A bit odd that you have to pay extra for bed linen but is stated when booking and wasn't much extra anyway. I'd stay there again.

Great hostel, located about 10 minutes walk from central station. Staff was excellent and the facilities were incredible. It's a basement hostel with ceiling skylights which is really cool. Ambience is so comfortable and we really felt like home there. They have some rules about no alcohol being allowed in the space, but they have a pub crawl every Saturday night and the rules did not take away from our ability to meet other travelers. We had a wonderful stay here. Highly recommended!

Cheers for the feedback. Correction: we do not have a pub crawl on Saturdays, but maybe we recommended to join one that we know about? ;-) Hostel manager

Really enjoyable, quiet stay here at stockholms city hostel! Faculties are clean, staff is helpful, friendly and knowledgeable, going beyond their duties to make sure your time in stockholm is well spent! its below the street, but also had a super large skylight in the hall as a nice touch. Made it easy to tell what the weather is like! Couldn't be more central, if you've got 2 or more days and fresh legs you won't even need a metro pass to see it all!

Hostel is in a good location, but further from the station than you might think! Still, only 10 mins walk into the heart of town. The hostel has a nice feel, good layout and is quite stylish. Kitchen area is good. However, because rooms are down in the basement they are quite dingy and have no windows! I also hate it when a hostel charges you for sheets! Building is very secure, there are small lockers in the rooms too. I would stay here again.

Great hostel, very clean comfy. Sheets were not included in price and I had to buy a lock for the locker (most other hostels I stayed at after this one had keys for their lockers at no charge. Pretty close to the train station but not THAT close...about a mile walk.

The staff was very kind and helpful. We arrived after the reception was closed but this was not a problem as we were given a security code for the door and our keys in an enveloped locked in a safe box. Everything went very smoothly :) I personally liked that there were rules about using sleeping bags, smoking and drinking. The hostel was very very clean and we had a good night's rest because no one was drunk or making noise. We definitely will come back again!! :)

Good location and friendly guests. Recommended for solo female travelers. Helpful staff. Bus stop is just outside the hostel that takes you to the city terminal. On foot, city terminal is 5-10 mins away. Bathrooms are well maintained. I liked the music in the shower and WC. The common area and kitchen is quite nice. Downside-Reception is not open 24*7. The bunk beds are noisy. Hostel charges for bed linen and towels. So you either carry a full set or rent it (Bed linen is 50 SEK/night)

Friendly staff - available office hrs only but always willing to help. Very clean, quiet and comfortable accommodation (room 8) solid bed with a good mattress; no window but that did not bother me personally; TV a massive bonus. Only minor -ve for me was having to walk through the communal kitchen and lounge to get to and from the showers, might bother some guests, but I am picking hairs. Great value, highly recommended and would definitely stay again. Well done to all the team.

The hostel is very clean and nice. The common areas make it very easy to meet people. Too bad they don't provide the bottom sheet and pillow case though. Well situated and very friendly staff.

Our stay was pleasant and we were satisfied with the hostel, but that's it. No wow factor most things were just average. Wasn't much of a social atmosphere and that's a big reason I like hostels.
