  • Great place to stay and a great place to meet new people. Free pasta is fine but they run out so not everyone gets it. Go on the pubcrawl they have stuck up everywhere around the hostel, so much fun! Stayed in a 12 dorm room, was fine, and probably better than most other rooms. Security not great and really have to buy locks from them to be able to use lockers. Annoying that you have to pay for sheets if didn't bring them, who does when backpacking right? Good facilities a d great location.

  • Great. Hostel. Wonderful price, especially considering the amenities available which included a free communal sauna (my dorm also had its own) and free pasta to cook for yourself in the large kitchen (or, again, in my dorm's own kitchenette). Even had my dorm, "Birka", not had the special extras, the staff and social atmosphere were unsurpassed and well worth the price. All within a 5 minute walk from the train station.

  • I loved it there, the rions are cleaned every day, the Kitchen and the other facilities for the such as the laundry room, the sauna, and the terrasse are really nice and rare in most hostels. There was free pasta for us, which also helps your budget in a city like Stockholm. The Wifi connection was also very good, everywhere in the Hostel. Overall, my experience was great, I got to meet fun ppl which made my stay at the hostel even more enjoyable.

  • I wish reception was 24-hours so we could've contacted them for night-time issues. I found it unreasonable that we were forced to rent linens if we didn't have them on us - who backpacks with linens? Linens should be included free of charge. They were also strange sheets so making your bed isn't exactly an easy task. Breakfast was more expensive than we expected. I felt nickel-and-dimed. After all the "extras" I had to pay for, my total went from about $37/night to about $55/night.

  • Such a cool atmosphere here. I felt very at ease as soon as I checked in. Place it a bit confusing to get around at first, but after a walk through it's very easy. The staff were all friendly, and everything was clean. The only thing I found a bit annoying was the use of codes instead of physical keys, because they change everyday. It was effective, but I just have a bit of a bad memory.
