I cannot stress how much I despise the fact that this hostel charges you an additional 50sek for sheet rental. It is extremely shady, and should be included in the price. NOBODY BACKPACKS WITH BEDSHEETS! Nevertheless, this hostel is your best bet for cheap accommodation close to Gamla Stan.
Nice staff, but rooms without airconditioning and the windows are not openable. Sweating like sauna. But alot of people and good to meet knew traveling friends
The reception is awful! The internet connection is slow and the rooms are stinky. The showers are Ok. And the kitchen too, but in general i am pretty sure that you can get a better place for the same price.
31°C in Stockholm, being grateful for the aircondition. Staying in a 4 bed room without window. Hostel is on ground floor and basement. 31°C in Stockholm. Dankbar für den Ventilator. Raum ohne Fenster, Hostel liegt im Erdgeschoß bzw. Keller.

Everything was great. Thank you interhostel - Uppsala :)
This hostel is totally not what i expected it to be. No atmosphere, rude staffmembers and smelly, stinky, tiny windowless rooms. We thought the rooms were only 16 europs, but when we arived we were not alowed to use our own sleeping bags, and we were forced to rent the bed linnen for 50 kronen. its all about the money, and it is not about the guests. Guests are treated like walking wallets.
Very disappointed with the staff. I've been to many hostels but it's gotta be the first time I felt like . When I came to check in the girl was on the phone (personal call) and totally ignored me, she took all her time like I wasn't there. And then she didn't apologize or anything . So the least I can say is that the fist impression was pretty bad and it was confirmed later on with the rest of the staff. They're not necessarly rude but they just don't pay attention at you...
Good, atmosphere, and very good location but a small kitchen and no windows in dorms, big con.
When I arrived, I wasn't even greeted, the receptionist was hiding behind her desk. Anyone can come into the hostel and do what they want. Also the room had no window, it was incredibly hot and stuffy inside. But I liked that we had a fan in the room and big lockers inside the room. O met some really nice people, an others not so nice who stole my food from the fridge. The kitchen is pretty small for the size of the hostel and number of people staying there. Bathroom and shower very clean.
This hostel had excellent value for money, if you're staying in Stockholm and you're not wanting to pay exorbitant amounts I'd say this is your best choice. Staff were sometimes a bit unfriendly. Only real negative was that the rooms were so cramped there was absolutely no space for your luggage.
This place decides to tell you only after you rock up that there is a 12.30 curfew and they lock the doors after that and you cant get back in

Was surprised that I was the only female in a "mixed" dorm, and this made me feel a little uneasy - I am used to travelling by myself and sleeping in mixed dorms, but there is always at least another female there. The guests were a bit ignorant of others - talking on phones very late into the night, and the snoring could be heard over my MP3, which was annoying. Also, when I came to check out, the staff member wasn't there. I had to wait 15mins to get my key deposit back. Otherwise, good hostel.
very poor ventilation in our room 37B- no option to open a window. Ventilator in our room doesnt mean to have a fresh air, mainly if someone in your room stinks.
I clean and quite place at the heart of Stockholm. I strongly recommend it.
the hostel is was ok, i dont like 3 things, small kitchen with few tables for so big hostel,no windows in rooms, so no fresh air,noisy metal beds
