Dirty and in desperate need of repairs. Bathrooms were few and filthy. Would never recomend it.
Rooms and the facilities were filthy and in desperate need of renovation for at least the past 10 years. Doors were not closing unless you really put your shoulder to it. Windows on the street level were left open so it was possible for anyone to climb in. No lockers in the dorms so the baggage had to be left to the reception (with a separate entrance). Toilets were smelly and dirty. No towels in the rooms had to pay extra. I've literally seen homeless shelters nicer than that hostel.
Location, free breakfast, and included linen are the best deal from this hostel. Stayed in one of the larger dorms and had no problems. Cleanliness was good but note only one shower and two toilets per floor (didn't ever have to wait but this could change if the hostel was fully booked). Would stay here again as location was perfect on the old city and this hostel was a good value in an otherwise expensive Scandinavian city.
Spartan accommodations, you get what you pay for. Great location in the old city. Worked out great for our two night stay.

Due to federal regulation, its forbidden to add a bar to the hostel.
Hostel could not have any better location than that. I liked breafast and it is definitely worth what you paid for. Plus the staff is so helpful
The hostel is in a great location on the harbour front in central Stockholm. It is a short walk to the nearest metro and ferry and there are many attractions nearby. The dorms are fairly large, so was not a problem with so many beds, and didn't often have to wait to use a bathroom. There is a big breakfast included, which is very useful with the expensive food prices in Stockholm.
