    Very cosy and homely. Affordable accommodation for short stays in the city of Stockholm. About 10min walk to Central Station for Arlanda Express to airport, bus terminal to airport or other cities and local mainline metro services. Close to all city museums, amenities and restaurants.

    Good location for the price and the room were tidy and the bathroom was nice as well. Unfortunately was the kitchen nasty and not very clean, and there were no real opportunities to cook food properly. Please hire some cleaning staff for the kitchen and furthermore make people more aware of cleaning up after themselves. An other thing that was quite uncomfortable was the fact that the cleaning staff just opened the door to our room half an hour before we needed to check out. We were getting dressed at that time and weren’t ready to check out, and it was rude that the cleaning staff didn’t wait until we did check out.

    Private 1 person bedroom with bathroom. Quite weird that the front door was open all day. Though there was a code lock on it, this was only used after eight or so. Hostel did have some vague figures walking around sometimes. Please buy some more cutlery etc. 3 tiny bowls aren't enough for a whole hostel and there were only little spoons and forks. Common area was cleaned every morning, but I had to eat breakfast from a coffee cup as there was barely any dishware. There is also no way to cook food. Does have a fridge but I'd expect from a hostel that you're at least able to bake an egg.. My bathroom was clean and looked new. The one person bedroom had towel/bedlinnen/toilet paper/handsoap included (although the linnen had a stain). I didn't see the common beds. The only downside about the room was the air ventilation that was blowing cold outside air into my room all day and night. A hot shower in the morning helped.

    Worst 2 nights of my life. Of course sharing a room with 13 other people isn't easy, but it becomes a living hell when the place is also dirty and smells bad, the lockers are broken (only few functioning for 14 people) and they stained my bag with paint. The bathrooms and toilets were always dirty and without paper, one of them didn't even have the door handle so it couldn't be looked/closed. The beds were comfortable, but the mattress was very dirty and stained. In some parts of the corridors the floor was broken and missing. The door of the room was supposed to be locked and work with a magnetic key-card, but it was just broken so anyone could go in. The staff of the hostel was really available and kind though. And the location of the hostel in the centre of the city was really convenient and practical to reach all the turistic points. The wifi was free and worked very well in my room. This was the cheapest hostel in Stockholm, so I wasnt expecting to sleep in the grand hotel, but i think that to find a clean place is the LEAST.

    Worst place ever, flee while you still can! The floor is destroyed, the smell is insane, people have no manners in this "hostel" Unclean, dirty and sticky floor and fridge Doesn't worth the 2 stars... Not able to be refund as well

    I would highly recomend not taking this hostel as first option despite it's decent price. Even if the hostel is situated in good area. The cleaning here isn't good, we found someones panties in our room. There are people that run around and talk loud at the night and the smell isn't really great, especially in the elevator.

    It seemed that almost every door was broken, our rooms door got stuck and the front door just didnt work sometimes so you couldnt get in. On top of that the rooms weren't cleaned in the last weeks due to piles of dust, and also not really a place to store your stuff. The location was okay, centrally located but hard to sleep at night due to the noise from the alleys outside. Didn't see any staff except for at check-in which was only 3 hours. Nobody was there later than 5 pm.

    Genuinely a horrible experience. The awful living conditions weren't even the biggest issue. Me and another guest had to forcibly remove trespassing individuals from rooms and we were threatened. No sleep was had as we were the only defence until the hotel owner and police finally showed up. No refund/apology or anything was recieved from owner. Chose to leave for fears of safety.
