The Hostel seemed very clean and the stuff was friendly and very helpful in certain situations! They have nice offers (like e.g. Biketours and grillpartys) and the sauna is great - even in july! We'll come back :)

This hostel looks like heaven: common spaces are just amazing (iMacs, sofas, yard, sauna) and so are the services and the activities. The late night check in was also straightforward thanks to their directions.

Loved this hostel. The beds were insanely comfortable for a hostel and nice big dorms with plenty of space. Very big, but never crowded, great facilities, awesome look to it. Cheap bike and longboard rentals. Good security with pincode access everywhere and lockers both inside the dorms and outside. They were renovating the shower room when I stayed but I...

I can't say enough good things about this place. I did the meatball making night, the pub crawl, and the bike tour. All the staff were awesome. I really liked the vibe of the guy who did the bike tour. This place is set up so you would have to try hard not to meet people and make friends. I...

The rooms are simple but clean. The staff is great. The system bolaget is one block away (the only store that sells liquors). Many shops around. Metro station is 5min walk. You will need to remember your passwords if you came back after 12 am. Excellent place to stay.

I spent only 1 night there, the atmosphere is really like a big family house with common kitchen and the living area. The toilet is clean. The receptionists are very friendly. I love the check-out chocolate.

Clean hostel, friendly and helpful staff, big kitchen with free pasta and a really nice common room. All the facilities you need. It was easy to find and is set in a really good location, less than ten minutes walk from the central station, and about a twenty minute walk to Gamla Stan, the old town. I would stay again!

Great location. Friendly staff. Super clean, hip and trendy - kind of what you'd expect in Sweden. I stayed in a 8 bunk room but it didn't feel crowded at all. If you're looking around for a place in Stockholm, this is the one.
