Stayed here 5 nights with a friend and as far as hostels go, it was a pleasant experience. Everyone we met was friendly, staff included (when they are on site - 8am-8pm). There's plenty of information on offer, including a useful noticeboard, free maps etc and various nice little touches around the place e.g a hairdryer in the bathroom, free tea, coffee and pasta(!) in the kitchen and pens and paper available for 'writing love letters'. There was a very mixed range of ages staying at the time and everyone was very respectful of other guests. We stayed in one of the 4 bed dorms which was ok in size. Each 'bed' had it's own locker and there was space under the bunk to roll cases away and keep the floor cleared. The common area and kitchen aren't the largest, but again, absolutely fine. We were actually out sightseeing most of the time, only really returning to sleep! The hostel is at basement level so the layout is fairly rabbit warren-like, but the space has been used well. There are plenty of toilets and the bathrooms (separate mens and womens) are a decent size. Probably the best thing about the hostel is its location. Sodermalm is a really interesting neighbourhood, the hostel is almost right next to a metro (and only 4 or 5 stops from the Central train station and next to numerous city bike stands. We actually only used the metro twice and covered a lot of ground on foot and cycling. Stockholm is a fairly expensive city and would definitely recommend the hostel as a great value-for-money option.
