  • The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to show where some of the hotspots in Stockholm were. The atmosphere of the hostel is very welcoming, particularly the kitchen and common room, and this enables people to integrate and get to know each other very easily. I even met up with some of the group again on the next stage of our journey in Copenhagen.

  • One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Really liked the layout and the staff was friendly and helpful as well. Surprisingly in a great location in a nice part of town.

  • My first stop during a 10 day trip all over Europe! This hostel exceeded my expectations. Security: every door had a lock with a keypad that changes daily. Location: 5 minutes from the main street, 3 minutes from the bus station. Staff: truly caring and kind people. Atmosphere: between the dorm rooms, common room, and kitchen; much joy. Cleanliness: everything was extra-ordinary. Value: Ballin' on a budget? Stay here. Facilities: 110%. Would stay again and again and again.

  • I was really disappointed with this hostel. I LIKED THE location, price, and thought the free pasta was a nice touch. However, I found the facilities to be somewhat too hipster and dirty, also I found the staff to feel somewhat unprofessional. MY MAIN COMPLAINT IS THAT THE HOSTEL DOES NOT ENFORCE THEIR NO PARTYING AFTER 11 POLICY. MY TWO NIGHTS I WAS THERE I GOT NO SLEEP AS THE IDIOTS IN MY ROOM KEPT COMING IN THE ROOM AND SCREAMING IN THE HALLS. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE AS STAFF WAS AWARE.

  • Easily one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The staff was awesome all-around, there were so many lounging areas (even in the rooms!) and they were obviously very considerate when designing the place for backpackers. There are plugs everywhere, free coffee all day, etc. There's even a sauna which is awesome. The location is hard to beat, it's literally in the center of Stockholm. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Nicely located and with lots of good vibes. The perfect place to stay in Stockholm when you do not mind taking your shoes off in the entrance area ;)
