Would have been nice if the room had a window, but it was not that bad since we used it purely for sleeping between sightseeing. The bathroom was large (disabled bathroom). Breakfast was OK. The "luggage room" is just a small storage room that can't be locked. Because of that we had to take all our valuables with us on our last day (the train was leaving late), which was not much fun to carry around. Staff was nice and friendly.
Stuff is not friendly and they do not answer e-mails in a polite way. There are no windows in the rooms, no air conditioning and the heating can not be switched on/off or adjusted. Our room was very small and with low ceiling. Shared shower was separated from the toilet just with a curtain, that is not really convenient. Also toilets were not really clean. However location is very good and breakfasts were good. All in all the hostel is OK if you are young and stay there not more than 2 nights.

Paid £32pp for a simple, clean room with twin beds, however there were no windows so it would probably be very hot in summer, but was fine in April. Good range of breakfast options included in the price as well. Bathrooms were clean and showers had curtains which other reviews had said they did not have. All in all happy with our stay there, and enjoyed being out of the city itself as we got to stroll through all the residential areas as well.
Clean, convenient, great location in awesome Sodermalm, the breakfast was not bad and plentiful - but zero atmosphere and cold, unfriendly staff. Which is fine is you are travelling (as we were) as a couple and not too bothered about meeting others, but I wouldn't recommend it for a solo traveller.
The stay was really not as good as expected considering the good evaluations of the hostel. The hostel seemed relatively old and needs some renovations (which they are doing right now as far as I understood). The room (we booked a double-bed room) was extremely small, did not have any windows and the ceiling was very low (maybe 1.95m?). The bathrooms were okay, at least there was no mold anywhere, however it was not totally clean. The breakfast was good, though.
