    We were only there for 8 hours and mostly need to stash our bags and catch a few hours of sleep before our flight. That being said, they front desk (possible owner) was the nicest and most accommodating with late arrivals. The room was comfortable and you can’t beat the central location.

    We loved our stay here! Despite reviews saying there wasn't much atmosphere, everyone in our room was really friendly and happy to chat about travelling. There's a little communal room right at the entrance which is nicely decorated, and you can sit and relax there with friends/other travellers. The kitchen is small but immaculately kept. There was even free food, tea and coffee! Showers/toilets clean. Only door codes so felt a bit less safe than if there were key cards, but still felt v safe.

    Great location in the old town of Stockholm, invaluable for a short stay like ours. The atmosphere was great and we met so many great people from all over. Although paying for sheets is a pity, the kitchen was a great perk. If you’ve got a suitcase, walk around the island rather than through to get here though - cobbled streets. It would have been nice to have toilets on both floors but it was not an issue. Comfy beds and an overall lovely stay! Would definitely recommend for any length trip!

    Excellently located hostel with reasonable prices. Better for those just looking for a place to sleep rather than meet people. Only two shared bathrooms, but many showers, and overall the place is clean. Security is pretty bad, however, with a simple code to get in, and staff on-site for only a few hours a day. One night we returned to our private room door having been left open by the cleaning staff! Otherwise, it's pretty good value for cost if you're just touring for the weekend.
