  • The hostel was really well located, super calm and very clean. There was no real atmosphere because there was no common room. It was fine for us because we needed to rest, but people looking to meet other people at the hostel might not be able to do so. The fact that reception was only for specific hours was weird and unpleasant for us. We arrived around 8:30pm, and we had many questions, but there was no one to ask. We believe that reception is important and were upset to not finding anyone.

  • It's the definition of no frills. You get a bed and a shower in a good location. Do not expect anything else though. The advantage of this is it seemed the guests were more respectful and used the facilities just for sleeping rather than partying... Which made getting sleep easier.

  • The 2 bed private rooms were great! I also stayed one night in a 4 bed doorm, and that was a bit crowded, and there were no security boxes to lock your stuff in so I did not feel safe leaving my stuff in the room while I was gone. Other than that, nice hostel, great location, clean and calm. The street outside is a bit noisy on weekends. Showers and kitchen ok. But, there is almost never anyone at the reception, you have to pick up your key from a letter and get the code to the front door.

  • Had booked a double room without bathroom - excellent value for money! Good price, clean, very friendly staff. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who does not need a luxury room but wants the most central location very close to a metro station. Rooms very simply equipped. I found the beds very good (Ikea :-). No breakfast but a nice kitchen with kettle, fridge, crockery and cutlery etc. Coop-shop 3 mins away to buy coffee, milk, bread etc. Five stars!

  • Nice hostel located in Gamla Stan (old town). This was more of a family hostel with no age limit on guests. No common room to hang out in other than the kitchen. Very clean, the only downside was the reception is only there from 8am to 3pm. Easy walking distance to most places.

  • No one at reception upon arrival. Also would be nice to have a common area to sit. Great location, although the bar across the street was noisy until 3 a.m. Very clean so no complains on that.
