Room, helpful staff, extra facilities
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
fast wifi free pasta clean room
Very lovely hostel,perfect location,warm stuffs,definitely will book again
Fabulous location, great value and welcoming staff
The location and hall
Room was cold, wind blow through the window. Problem with check in, but it was a inusual problem. Price was high.
Kitchen was amazing, everything else was bang for your buck, I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone.
The location was excellent. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The facility seems to be well organized and kept clean. I was in an 8 beds female room with a shower room inside - room was very spacious, but you still have to use the hall toilets. I felt secure and safe during my stay. Plenty of public transportation, lots of fast food chains surrounding the area. A big grocery store is under the Central Station which is 2 blocks from the hostel.
The room was a little cold - I don't think the heater was enough (did not find the control panel). The room lights were terribly and electrical socket provided was 1 for each bed. If i need to use it, I can't plug in my bed light.
The big kitchen and enough bathrooms.
The ensuite shower area would have been better if it had a curtain for each cabin. The no-shoe policy.
One of the best hostels I've stayed at, the deco and set up is lively, like a huge house you live in with all your friends. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the extra activities are 100% worth it. Definitely sign up for the meatballs class, I met the best people there and had the most fun I've had in ages! All areas spotlessly clean, with plenty of pots, pans etc to use
The beds were fairly creaky, but some earplugs will fix that right up. The lockers in the rooms don't fit a standard hiking back.
Spacious dorm room, private showers, great chill out areas, friendly staff. Easily the best hostel I've ever stayed in (and I've stayed in quite a few) !!
Just use code no key neede
Wished they have female Dom
The hostel was very welcoming and conveniently located.
Very clean, comfortable sheets, good location, great common room and kitchen, additional fun activities are offered.
The room was a bit chilly for me.
Best hostel i've ever stayed at + free pasta! Thanks heaps!
Good price in rapport to quality and personal expect.
Very helpful receptionist: Since the hostel is rather big, he explained all different door codes on side, brought me to the room and made sure that bed and locker were okay.
The hostel rating is in relation too high for what I have seen (8 bed dorm): the beds are iron frames but not well fixed. So, whenever someone goes to bed or just changes her/his position it is really loud. Due to the close proximity (of all rooms on the ground floor where my dorm was), it was loud throughout the whole night; usually sleeping well but that was beyond...people coming with suitcases, rolling over the wooden floors (really loud), people in the central hall laughing, shouting all night...- And then: I arrived at 10pm and the kitchen got then; the cafe - which was said to offer tea and coffee (even for free) till 4am in the morning, had not staff and no facility either to get still something to drink like a hot tea or coffee as usually no problem in hostels. All in all, the facilities were - nice in their style, but used, old and not special at all. Compared to other hostels in Stockholm, - and I have seen quite some now, a 6.9 to 7.4 at ts best would be fairer, I think.
There are enough toilets & showers, they are for common use, of course, but the good thing is that there are several separate WC+shower rooms, so if you do not like public shower nudity - it is a good solution for you. Good location near Central Station.
We booked the room for 2 people - it was very small, just for 2-floor bed, chair & drawer. The beds were noisy & old. It was freezing cold in the room at nights, though it was autumn. And we could hear every sound behind the walls, which was not always pleasant. Clean sheets & towels are not included for free, so be ready to pay extra.
