“Decent place to stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

They did a good job at making a 12 bed feel somewhat private. Staff was nice and helpful, booked taxis and answered all my questions. Small lockers in rooms for things you need to lock up. Felt a bit dirty, but got the job done. Huge kitchen. Lots of showers and toilets. Quite hot in summer. A bit far from old town and such if you're walking, but easy to metro!

Nice and helpful staff, good facilities, spectacular kitchen. Hostel well located, with City Bikes points near and a nice park, computers with internet for free...I had a really good stay. The only thing that bothers me, but it's not specific to this hostels but hostels in Sweden in general, is that they make you pay extra money for bed linen when you get there without even mentioning it on the website when you book...But I still have a good opinion about this place, recommended.

Room Tip: Bring your own bed linen if you can otherwise you gonna have to pay for it.

I stayed at this hostel for 10 days around Midsommer 2014 and highly recommend it.

Firstly, because it is in an excellent neighborhood. Best in town.

Secondly, the staff is very gentle, good humored and helpful.

Thirdly, the price. It is pretty good, for Stockholm standards.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have not a window. Ask first.

I recently stayed at the Skanstulls Hostel in Stockholm and had an overall enjoyable time. It's located in the Södermalm district, one of the cooler neighbourhoods of town - well-connected and lots going on, especially at weekends. Rooms and showers were clean, staff were generally helpful and there are self-catering facilities, useful in an expensive city like Stockholm.

Very welcoming, polite and clean hostel. Simple rooms with bunks but all basic necessities provided and very well organised. What more could you ask for? Will look forward to hopefully returning in the future.

The hostel has very nice and comfortable atmosphere. It is near a subway station and very close to the centre of the city. A supermarket is at the opposite side of the street. The kitchen is well equipped. The only minus is that the shower room has common pre-shower place. No privacy to dress/undress.

The kitchen had an incredible social atmosphere and the rooms were clean and well-designed. They have you purchase bed sheets at the desk, but it was not expensive enough to warrant a dissatisfaction with their overall fantastic service.
