“Take a bit to appreciate”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

Average +
The place is well situated, easy access. The rooms and bathroom are clean. You have internet, tiny kitchen, and washing machine.
All would be perfect except a little adjustment in the administration.
When you book you are suppose to receive all those code numbers and bed number...but attention...it can get into your junk...or lost sometime, and it could be a little of confusion for some how to manage the numbers with no regular reception. In fact the reception is operate from 7am to 13h00 and 22H to 24h00. So between you help yourself and you help each other...Or you send a email...and wait for an answer....

I went to Acco Hostel twice, once in 2011 and one this year. The hostrl is well connected (bus and metro station, 3 stops from T-Centralen), in the very heart of Sodermalm. Free Wi-fi and coffee/Tea. Perhaps not the best solution if you need silence and calm but a perfect choice if you are travelling with friends. The owners are not much present, you can find them in the morning but in the night you have to do it on your own.
I would come back there agai. My vote is 6.5/10

Although this hostel wasn't entirely unpleasant, you can definitely find better. It is extremely cheap, but in order to fully enjoy yourself...it is worth spending a little more for a much warmer atmosphere. This place is a little bit scary, and definitely somewhere you would want to travel in a group. It is not welcoming, and there is no security staff whatsoever. Keep all of this in mind before choosing Acco Hostel.

I found many other hostels that were cheaper and had better services. First of all the bad things is the lack of a common space, unless you find comfortable to sit in the corridor. The showers are the most uncomfortable I have used.
However beds and the kitchen aren't so terrible, the location isn't so bad either, so you might want to take this hostel as your last option.

It is heartening to know that even though Stockholm is an expensive city, there are still cheap places to stay. If you dare that is. Acco Hostel is one such place, incredibly cheap for a place like Stockholm but filled with all the insecurities that one would expect. First of all there is no check in or reception, so if you need help with something you will be in a bind. Secondly, some of the customers don’t seem to be your usual tourist type and so it doesn’t have the same friendly atmosphere as your favourite hostel. That may be a good thing since it forces you to have a heightened sense of awareness. Thirdly, the number of toilets and wash basins are simply too few to cater to the number of guests.

The room is quite small for 4 persons so don’t expect to spend much time in the room, or even inside the hostel. You would need to carry your luggage up a flight of stairs. Temperature in the winter is warm enough and the shower is ok.

Both the location and the price are very good. Wifi, washing and drying of laundry are all free. However, there are many problems with this place which had prevented me from giving a good rating. The worst is this hostel doesn’t feel safe. It is a pity since at the price that is being charged, this hostel has potential.

To summarize, if you can afford a better place, then I would recommend you pay more for a better place. Please note that the prices here changes very fast and you will probably pay the least if you are the first few guests to book for a particular date.

I read a great number of the reviews available for this hostel before booking. I would say there are a few features that were notable. The region, sodermålm, was recommended to me by a friend, as it is not touristy. I would agree. The hostel was easy to get to from the metro stop. Also, because we got in late, it was great to just have a door code in advance and let ourselves right in to the hostel and our room. Also, I liked finding the linens waiting for us on our beds. That said, I read a number of reviews which stated that extra charges were applied for a variety of reasons-- the hostel warned me about this in emails prior to our visit, and so we were very careful to follow all guidelines... such as sleeping in our assigned beds. Also, it can get a bit noisy in the hallway, but it didn't last for an extended period, people were fairly respectful of the request for quiet. Everything the hostel stated on the website was what we found upon arrival, and it was overall a good value for money. I would recommend it for a traveler on a budget, looking for accommodation for a short period of time!

Clean but little space room. Main- and room- door on code, change one a month. One time we meet homeless sleeping in a corridor. Other time the battery in a door lock need to be change. We informed the staff about that. It takes more then 5 hours to fix it. During this time room was open for everyone. Twice at day staff check how many person is in a room (at morning and at midnight ). Remamber to pay before you arrive to hostel. Close to the metro. Peaceful neighborhood
