Everything.....location, lovely hostel, clean, comfortable......
Our stay was only brief but it seemed like a pretty good place for a young traveller wanting to meet people
The hostel is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There are cozy common areas and a kitchen that you can hang out with others. They also provide you with computers and a printer. The hostel is not far from the central station and the shopping area.
Clean, good location
Personally I don't like underground rooms. No windows, no natural light.
The atmosphere combined with the facilities, the interior and everything is amazing
The wifi didn't work so well in some parts of the venue
there are a lot of bathrooms including private ones. a man staff explains very clearly and in a easy way.
think some beds are too old to make a squeaky sound even at a small movement.
Great atmosphere, excellent kitchen facilities, sauna on site.
A nice place to stay, the layout and environment of the hostel was very conducive to meeting new people. Nice kitchen area (with free pasta!), nice communal lounge with free wifi. The breakfast, a paid option, was also excellent. This hostel made the last day of my trip a great one, I should have stayed longer in Stockholm!
Whats not to like.. the staff were great. The place was cleaner than any hostel i have ever stayed in. Plenty of activities organised everyday. Mikes bike tour is a must!!!! He has got more local knowledge than you will be able to remember!!!!
Couldnt stay long enough
Location and the facilities of the hostel.
Room is a bit dark.
Love the free pasta. Friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable bed.
Only complaint: the hostel is kept clean, but it is often cleaned during peak hours, e.g., 0800 and 0830 on two mornings in the dining/kitchen in the midst of breakfast; another morning 0930 the lounge was being cleaned with a dozen guests using it. Isn’t possible to clean theses spaces on off-hours when fewer people are using them? Otherwise, the best hostel in Sweden.
I met so many great people when I stayed there so this fact itself is already good; The kitchen area has a "Leftovers" section, which is free to use by anyone and saves you tons of money. I rarely had to go out to eat. Also, the free pasta and speedy Internet are awesome; The common area outside has many interesting people at all times; You can do laundry for SEK 50 and with that you get free laundry powder. The breakfast is good and includes a choice of a ham/cheese sandwich or croissant with 1 glass of orange juice and 1 yoghurt with fruits. You can also get unlimited coffee and tea.
I stayed for three nights and I was surprised by the many advantages this hastel had: private toilets and showers, a refrigerator for each room, free pasta, healthy breakfast (not included, 55SEK), a sauna (very relaxing after having walked around during all day), washing machines, hairdryers . Don't worry if you travel by yourself, you will meet people in the common areas.
I would recommend them though to organize more social activities. Also, I didn't bring my own sheets because I wasn't told of (they told me it was in the description but it was not, I checked after), so they charged me about 60SEK. Brind earplugs if you are sharing a room.
very clean, nice staff
a bit noisy at night
Clean bathroom Very near to city centre
Although you have to rent bed sheet and but the padlock... It only cost u few kroner
This hostel was the best hostel ive ever stayed at! The environment, the staff, the activities they offered made for a memorable stay. I was a solo traveller and was worried about not meeting people but this hostel was perfect for anyone going by themselves!! The kitchen was awesome, the lounge room felt like you were right at home and the bedrooms all had lockers, lights and powerpoints. A very clean and modern place to stay. Thankyou!
Paying for sheets, towels and breakfast but even then it wasnt that expensive as other hostels.
good location & atmosphere
bad circulation for emergency(too narrow & long distance)
A really clean hostel with nice interior. A great place for backpackers with lots of activities. Nice breakfast.
A bit noisy. The room was very cold at night.
- International and friendly environment - the hostel close to a bus station
Absolutely awesome place to stay! Cheap, cosy, clean and people there (staff and guests) were great.
Free pasta, cool and young people and a nice style
A little bit cold because the window don't closed exactly
Good great, free pasta.
A bit noisy in late night.
the decoration is excellent security is well good every room need key lock every door need key lock every room have locker for each client,room space is enough for everyone,the facility for everyone is suitable.if 10 is the high mark.9.5is my marking
in actually No
Internet access is wonky.
It has been the one of cleanist hostel i have ever seen becauae you have to take your shoes of when you get to room. Helpfull staff, large and useful common areas and close to the city center and central station.
It is just that rooms are on the basement and no windows available so air conditioner has to be open all the night, this made me sick a bit.
