  • Perfect for a convenient tour of Stockholm and traveling out of Stockholm b/c its right down the road from the arlanda express (airport train) and trains leading everywhere else (both within Sweden, and on to places like Copenhagen in Denmark etc.)

  • Great experience. The hostel draws a lot of interesting and fun travelers so the company was great as a solo traveler. The facilities were awesome too. Overall really good vibe. Not great if you just want a quiet night's sleep.

  • If you are hurry up, take your patience because the staff is not so reactive!! Moreover, don't forget that in Sweden you have to pay your sheet!! It's not included in the room!! Neverthelesse, room are clean. Bathroom is not very useful but clean. Location is about 15 minutes walking from this hostel.

  • Compared to other hostels, they had really put a lot of effort into the interior styles which made the experience more worth while. Quirky yet cosy is how I would describe the overall feeling of the atmosphere. Easily one of the best hostels I have stayed at!

  • You were only my second international hostel!!! The only drawback with my visit to Stockholm was that it was too short but on the plus side it means I will be back for a longer visit

Luckily there are so many other beautiful cities around Europe which offer an exciting nightlife at half or even a third of the cost.
