We stayed in a double bedroom with shower and toilet ensuite and found that this hostel offers good value for money since lodging is generally very expensive in Stockholm. The location is brilliant and the free Wi-fi is a great bonus. Room was clean and not as small as expected. For check in, just be careful with the not so...

This hostel is very good both in quality and price. I stayed in the 8-bed girls room and it was really something - great decoration, comfy & clean beds and sheets and ensuite bathroom. The WiFi works great everywhere, not only in the reception as it is in many hostels. The breakfast is also very good - tea, milk, coffe,...

The rooms are silent and tidy, the WiFi is powerful and for free. Free food for breakfast and pasta available for lunch and dinner. The reception timetable is a bit too strict, but everything is easily managed with automatic doors and codes.

This is a short walk from the main town centre and is near the tragic site of where Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme was assassinated in 1986. The hostel is more like a hotel. Rooms are clean and tidy and the place is well kept. We found it good value for money. Around the corner is many pubs and restaurants...

Stayed there for a second time and liked it a lot. The location is very handy for a short weekend break - close to the Central Station, in walking distance to many points of interests, with 7 Eleven convenience stores, restaurants, bars and a supermarket just around the corner. The rooms are clean , warm and quite a good size,...

The location is pretty handy just a short walk from hotoget underground stop which is walking distance from the clubs of ostermalm and only about 10mins from central bus station. The shower to guest ratio is pretty poor at 1 per floor and the beds in our dorm were quite rickety, creaking at the slightest movement. A word of warning,...

Nice hostel with really good location. Private double room with private shower was ok and clean. Coffee tea and pasta available for free in the kitchen anytime. I would definitely recommend that one if looking for not overpriced place to sleep.

I've stayed here on two week nights in November. The hostel is located on a good ten minute walk from the Central Station and a five minute walk from the Stureplan area.

“We were on the first floor where most of the rooms were double. At the end of the corridor it was all very quiet.”

“Ask for a middle bed. There are three per stack, the bottom one might as well be on the floor and the top is too high.”
