  • This was my first stay in a hostel and it was perfect. I only wish I had booked two nights in stead of one. I wasn't surprised to find out that there were no free beds. The location is perfect, the building is very pretty, the rooms are nice and cozy and the beds are comfortable. Next time I'm in Stockholm I'm definitely staying there again.

  • Nice Hostel. Good Kitchen. Pasta for free! The only disadvantage are the short opening hours of the luggage room. (07-17)

  • Not a bad place considering it is Stockholm and money doesn't get much. Needs more bathrooms, and with the amount of guests should have a 24 hour reception.

  • Not really a hostel athmosphere for meeting other people on their trip. More like a hotel with dorms. But nice to have noodels and some food/drinks for free which is really valuable in Stockholm! One of the cleaniest hostels i've ever been! Staff could be more engaged to create a hostel athmosphere. Were not really helpful if we had questions.

  • The Femaile dorm is very nice and cosy! There's no common room but you can always hang out in the kitchen, there is quite a big dinning room. As for the free tea and coffee, it' there, but I recommend taking your favourite tea and use only the hot water because what they give would wake up a dinosaur... And there's only one cooker so I guess in the summer times it can get quite crowded in the kitchen... Otherwise everything was perfect, location is safe and realy close to the city center!

  • The hostel was great, friendly, and clean, but the bathroom situation was not great. I was in a room with 14 people and there was one bathroom and one shower to share, which created problems in the morning.

  • The staff is so nice to recommend some attractions to me when I talked to her in the reception. The location of the hostel is amazing and it is just next to the metro station. Moreover, free pasta, tea and coffee are provided in the kitchen area. However, the biggest problem of the hostel is that there are not enough shower rooms and toilets. There are only 1 shower room and 1 toilet on the floor of my room and I have to go down or up-stair to look for another toilet in the morning.

  • The experience strongly depends on the other guests staying at the same time. I have visited Birka Hostel more than once and my experience went from really good clean and nice all the way to my last stay to not so nice and definitely not so clean. you get what you pay for and for the price you get a room that is relatively close to the city center and sometimes it is exactly what you need.
