Amazing hostel close to the heart of stockholm. Great service. Good facilities
The second night of my stay was awful. Some people came back at 2am and created loud noises for a very long time.
The location is ok for me.
It's the best Hostel that I've ever stayed!
Didn't like having to pay extra for linen! Used to renting towels, but why anyone would carry their own bed linen around is beyond me! It should just be included in the price!
Great location, close to the main station. Funky looking inside. Nice spacious rooms and great showers!
Very nice and available people. The space is very comfy and wi-fi works everywhere. And if you like old and interesting stuff you'll be amazed by the decor!
Very nice hostel. Perfect location, all important things possible by foot. Clean rooms, very good beds.
Thursday Pub Tour was horrible. It was so unorganized. Guests were left stranded in front of the 3rd club not able to get in coz it was over crowded and staff who lead the group went disappear inside the club. Reception staffs should be more informative about the city, especially where to exchange money with good rate.
Hostel is so clean and bed was comfortable, despite the lack of bed lenin. Toilets and showers were plentiful. Multiple common areas to relax. Location was excellent, walking distance to everywhere in the city. Friendly staffs!
Dont like the auto check in at my fb when I use the wifi everyday....check in Many times so annoying!
Good location, and comfort bed with resonable price
decoration, kitchen, free tea, coffee, pasta, sauna, cleanliness, location
Bed were quite lumpy and small bathroom in the female-only dorm
Amazing location and staff. Easy to meet new people and free pasta!
Beds are too soft and springy. Cheap pillows are lumpy and full of bumps.
Excellent location, staff and atmosphere, nice cafe, kitchen and other common facilities.
Wifi was a little patchy in my room , but really fast elsewhere . But that's nothing major.
The bed was so so comfy , and the staff were really helpful. Great atmosphere. even though travelling on my own , I was always made to feel included.
my room was a bit small but it wasn't a really big problem
I liked a lot of things here: great location (5 minutes from the central station and Drottninggatan street), big, well-equipped kitchen, nice common room with computers and tv, sauna, a lot of toilets and showers, friendly staff. The breakfast was really good (and cheap !) as well.
The bed was terrible. I got the upper bed, and everytime the person in the bed below moved I woke up. :/
Staff was really nice and helpful, location was just perfect, everything was very clean, WiFi worked fine.
The staff, the room was large. The breakfast was nice. There's a sauna you can use for free
the noisy beds, it was horrible.
at all it was a nice hostel, a good place to make some new friends.
The bed I slept was on the top and it was a little bit noisy because of the air conditioner.
The atmosphere was excellent in the common areas. It was like you are talking to people that you have known for years! Besides these, facilities, some free food in the kitchen were quite good and the idea of "leftover food" is excellent. Very close to central station (only 10 minutes walk) I would definitely stay there for my next visit! Strongly recommended hostel.
Loud Americans and Australians in kitchen area.
Spacious lockers, private shower and toilet rooms, key code door entry. Large kitchen and refrigerators.
the bed too soft .
the bed feel too soft for me
Slow WiFi. Terrible showers.
Location was perfect
The opportunity to talk and meet people from al the world. Staff very friendly
I didn't like taking my shoes off but I didn't mind either
I loved the location and the friendliness and cleanliness of the hostel
There was nothing I didn't like.
Viking Sauna Experience, the beds, location was close to the central station and shops, staff was helpful and considerate, kitchen was spacious, showers were clean, decor was nice, the YOGURT in the cafe was delicious (I should have asked what kind).
