Nice room, helpful staff and great location. The toilets/shower rooms could have been better.


It's a good hostel, very well located. There was not so much of an ambiance when i was there but i guess it always depends on the people more than of the hostel! Overall it's a nice place to spend some days in Stockholm, the only little thing is a certain lack of security due to the fact that there are no lockers in the dorms.

Great hostel, very good relation quality-price. I really loved the kitchen, in front of the sea. A perfect place to meet other travellers and plan what you're gonna do during the day. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed! :)


The hostel layout is a maze. With so many people staying here, the place looks tired and the shared bathroom don't ever seem to be clean and there is always something that's broken or worn out. On one night, there was a major disturbance outside ... The windows downstairs got smashed, lots of shouting and the whole building shook as someone ran up and down the stairs. Didn't feel safe with no security guard and no police called. Broken glass window with its sharp shards around two days later.


Very nice place! Staff is kind of dimwitted but otherwise all very good! Several keycard-requiring doors make it extra safe! Kinda dumb that they make you pay for linens though


During my Stockholm trip I also stayed in a different hostel and this was much better than the other. The central locations makes it easy to explore lots of areas via foot or metro and it's not a bad walk to the ferry. Atmosphere wasn't great- it's a large hostel and with no hostel activities happening you mostly just met the others in your dorm. I had a good stay and would recommend to others! WiFi was a bit patchy but no biggie!
