Everything was fine. The thing that I like the most is their kitchen - clean and spacious.

Nice Hostel - only downside was that it was quite a ways from the center of town. Nice big kitchen to cook in. Laundry facilities were okay - only one washer and one very slow dryer for the whole hostel. Nice staff - one even took the time to mail me something that I left behind! Thanks :)

Many old people and families with kids in the hostel even though its a youth hostel. There was no atmosphere at all. Many guests were rude.

Really good hostel, located close to a good park which has a zoo restaurants museum then you have direct access to the trams busses and shipping dock to go anyplace, breakfast is cool and the staff really try to ensure you join in the evening entertainment. Its a short ride to avenue where the night life goes down then you have the free sauna in the hostel with movie nights as a bonus, all they need now is a bar!! Wink wink...

More of a family hostel if anything!! Atmosphere was literally dead. Rooms were pretty neat but there's no lockers. Kitchen was really good though. Staff news to be a bit more friendly too.

The staff were very friendly, and the showers were all private which was nice. Big rooms and nice set up for girls in the girls only dorm. I would stay here again.

Great hostel. Staff was really helpful on arrival and gave us some great tips on where to go. Having to pay extra for bed linen seemed a bit unusual compared to other hostels I've stayed in but it appears to be the norm for Sweden. Great location with lots of bars, restaurants and shops nearby. Overall, really pleased with my stay and would definitely recommend it to others.

A group of 5 of us stayed here in a private room and really enjoyed our stay here, the rooms were spacious and clean and the beds were comfy. There were plenty of large bathrooms which did the job but they are in need of referb as the standard doesnt keep up with the rest of this lovely hostel. The sauna is a nice touch and also the kitchen was very nice with enough fridge space to store food we brought from the local supermarket called Willys which had very good prices.

LOVED this hostel!! Highly recommend it!! My friend and I originally payed for a 12 person dormroom, but got upgraded to a four person one free of charge! Secure lockers that are easy to use! Each bed had two outlets and a small light! Plenty of individual bathrooms each with a shower, no need to worry about where you put your stuff. Very well thought out! Great staff, grocery store right down the street. Honestly can't express how much I loved this hostel. Best one I've stayed in by far!!

Make it so that you don't have to go to the reception to ask for the wi-fi password. I couldn't find any sharp knives for cutting meat in the kitchen. TV in the common area could have been bigger.

Great place overall. Kind staff and very helpful. The place was very clean and the rooms/beds are well tended to.

Good for Sweden since everything is expensive. The paying for bedding is odd but that's common here. Pretty easy walk to tram, Cafes, and food shop. Thankfully the toilets were clean because I had food poisoning here so spent a fair share of the night in there.

The hostel is pkay and has good facilities. What i missed the most was a good atmosphere and meeting people. It was pretty dead. And it is too high the price to pay for bed linen, almost 10 euros!!

Hello Sorry you came on a slow night but it happens. The good thing is that you can bring your own sheets and don't have to pay anything. BTW the price is 65 SEK which is apx 7,5 euros and it includes a towel.

The hostel was very clean and had a nice common area. A bit of a walk to the downtown area, but the tram stop is close by.
