“A good choice for couple of nights”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Been there for 3 nights in November 2013. Excellent location, almost everything you should visit is near. Not very comfortable rooms, but for a 2 persons is enough (we took 1/2 room with private bathroom). Heating is satisfactory. You have hot water all the time. In shortly, for a weekend tourists it is perfect.
The only bad thing we experienced last night were bedbugs, but at least we didn't brought them home! :)
And if you landing on Skavsta airport the best transportation is Flygbusarna buses.

We took a room for 4 people, it had a private toilet but the shower was shared with the other rooms in the floor. Overall it was clean and silent.
Breakfast was really bad, and the free wifi internet worked ok. Walking-distance from the train station and center.

We were on the visit to Stockholm and we were looking out for cheap hostel for one night stay. My friends stayed in another hostel as they did not get the rooms; hence I stayed alone. The good thing is the location: it is right there in the heart of city (Luntmakargatan). After booking they provide you with the code which you need to put in at the entrance. I reached the hotel quite early before the check-in time and they allowed me to keep the luggage and they provided me with another code for entry into luggage room. Mine was a mixed dormitory and it was a quite a good experience interacting people from various corners of the world.

Breakfast is very basic but I did not have any high hopes around this. It is worth to stay for couple of nights as solo traveler or with friends.

I stayed in the hostel for one night. I stayed in the female dorm which was a nice room. The hostel provided sheets, pillow cases etc but you have to make the bed yourself which I've never seen in a hostel before. They also don't provide towels. It's very good value for Stockholm though and in a great location. The reception isn't open very late but they email you the code for the front door in advance and then on the day if you get there after the reception is closed you can use the free wifi to find they've emailed you another code to get your room key.

location was good as hotel is situated in the middle of the city . rooms are quite small but have windows , if you need privacy its better to book a room with a private bathroom. Frindly staff at the reception

Room Tip: its better to book a room with a private wash room facilities

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 generous opening hours of the reception. Highly recommended!
