    Very cool atmosphere, great security being an old prison 😂 Great all you can eat breakfast if you buy breakfast tokens. The location was perfect for us because we had a music festival nearby. Very convenient location for visiting Södermalm.

    Very unique hostel. The receptionist was super nice and both the hostel and the room was clean. Only negative thing was that for some reason it took 10+ minutes for the water to heat up in the shower by leaving water running and upon turning water off the bathroom heating cools down again. Not sure if this was something to expect but I did not see this mentioned in any other reviews. Overall, hostel strikes a family-like atmosphere that keeps to their own rooms.

    This hostel is definitely an unforgetable experience. The staff is super friendly and helpful and the place is amazing. You'll probably never stay in a place as interesting as this again. The island is beautiful. The only downside is that it's a bit isolated from the rest of the city - coming in and out requires a bit of planning ahead, as it does take a reasonable amount of time to get to the center. But if you're not looking for the buzz of the city center, then you're in for a treat.

    Very cool hostel, everything is themed in prison style. The room was clean. Lots of choice for breakfast. Only weird that they ask extra money for towels and bedsheets while the rooms are not that cheap.

    This hotel is unique in that it is in a legit renovated prison. It is not near the metro stations, nor the main sights, but is on my personal favorite island other than Gamla Stan. I wouldn’t recommend it to sightseers with little time, but strongly recommend to people who like nature, enjoy walking, and want to be near good places to swim in the river. The breakfast, at a fee, is exceptional and cheaper than anywhere else in the city. Fill up and skip lunch if you want to splurge on nice dinner

    It‘s very very difficult to find, it’s on a small island where no any public transportation around, need to walk like 1km across a bridge to reach metro station. Room is extremely small, I didn’t understand why this hotel is a 3-Star. It’s quite clean and quiet though. Oh and, I booked months ago and found the price cheaper If I would book it the day I arrive, which is ridiculous. They changed for me though. Be sure to double check the price when you arrive.
