Liked: Sturdy, private bunks.

Disliked: There were a lot of 'business men' and people not visiting Stockholm for traveling/holiday purposes. Therefore the atmosphere was poor and didn't enjoy the hostel as a lone female traveler. Would have preferred a female dorm.

Liked: Great location on a fun island. Lots of bars restaurants and shops. Beds and rooms so comfy I had a hard time getting up and going in the mornings. Kitchen is a great place to meet fun people and the supplies are as good as what I use back home. You can live very cheaply in Sweden thanks to the free pasta and well-equipped kitchen.

Disliked: Nothing. This place is great.

Liked: Skanstulls is a very well designed hostel with plenty of space. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm which had lockable cupboards with electric sockets right next to the comfortable beds. It has a friendly atmosphere and is in a great location.

Disliked: It was quite hot in the kitchen, which had no windows. But the free coffee and pasta made up for that.

Liked: The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, and their design meant that they were quieter than most hostel rooms I have ever stayed in. The lack of windows helps this too, as there is no noise from outside. I have never slept so well in a hostel! The kitchen facilities were very good as well.

Disliked: The semi-communal showers might not be for everyone, but that is a minor thing. Perhaps a dedicated common room would be good too, but the dining area serves almost just as well.

Liked: Great friendly staff, good size lockers, very clean showers and toilets, comfy beds, only a short walk from the metro, awesome wallpaper!

Disliked: The inconsiderate residents we shared our dorm with - who came in wasted, talking loudly on their phone and turned lights on at 2am and left them on whilst passing out on beds they hadn't bothered to put sheets on. No fault of the hostel - but needed to mention as neither of us slept a wink on our last night in Sweden. One morning there was no coffee, then the next there were no filters - a very minor thing, other than that it was a great find!
