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.
Wifi was a little patchy in my room , but really fast elsewhere . But that's nothing major.
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.
my room was a bit small but it wasn't a really big problem
Staff was really nice and helpful, location was just perfect, everything was very clean, WiFi worked fine.
The bed was terrible. I got the upper bed, and everytime the person in the bed below moved I woke up. :/
The staff, the room was large. The breakfast was nice. There's a sauna you can use for free
at all it was a nice hostel, a good place to make some new friends.
the noisy beds, it was horrible.
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.
The bed I slept was on the top and it was a little bit noisy because of the air conditioner.
Spacious lockers, private shower and toilet rooms, key code door entry. Large kitchen and refrigerators.
Loud Americans and Australians in kitchen area.
the bed too soft .
the bed feel too soft for me
Location was perfect
Slow WiFi. Terrible showers.
The opportunity to talk and meet people from al the world. Staff very friendly
I loved the location and the friendliness and cleanliness of the hostel
I didn't like taking my shoes off but I didn't mind either
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).
There was nothing I didn't like.
the kitchen, the common area
the bed, too much noise sometimes
Room, helpful staff, extra facilities
Convenient location, friendly stuff, and it's a very clean hostel! They have privet shower room and free hair dryer, it's really good for female!
sauna, fast wifi, free pasta, free skates to use
location is not that close, no elevator
location is very good. It is in the downtown of Stochlom. Everything in this hostel is good enough for people to use. Especial the kitchen is big and clean. the price is so cheap and there is bar next to hostel that you can talk with other tourists and drink hot drink.
Good location. Nice Staff.
- Very central location within a few walking distance of City Terminalen - Swedish welcoming presence and open-mindedness - Little sauna - Bike renting
Large and clean hostel. Toilets and showers are always available. The hostel has a sauna! Great location near the train station, metro, we walked to Gamla Stan and Skansen (Skansen a bit far, but we love walking). Free pasta.:)
Linens costs about 20 SEK, it stains of bleach and small holes. On the second day of stay in the room stopped working electricity. We moved to another room, but there was no window.
Free internet and several computers, mattress comfortable. Close enough to the centre.
All extra you have to pay extra for - sheets, towel, locks. Bed frames a bit squeaky.
Location Compfy bed, nice lamp and enough sitting space Shared area with computers and good vibe Private showers available Free pasta
Poor wi-fi signal
