Liked: Near a metro stop and within walking distance to centre if you want to walk for a while. Supermarket right across the road. Nice kithen with heaps of space to cook! Rooms are nice and each bed has a plug which is handy. I'd stay again if I went back to Stockholm :)

Disliked: The "free pasta" (which was a selling point to us) was legit just free plain uncooked pasta haha, we were imagining a nice pasta dish being prepared each night. Don't be fooled!

Liked: Good kitchen, lot's of toilets and showers, beds are pretty comfy. The area is cool, but it's a little while away from the major sites - close to the metro though, so not a big deal.

Disliked: I don't like having to pay extra for linen, I think it should come as a standard inclusion when you pay for a bed. The rooms on the street can get quite noisy at night.

Liked: Free pasta in the kitchen was a great resource (esp as Stockholm can be quite expensive). Nice atmosphere, and good value for money.

Disliked: Having to rent bedsheets felt like a hidden fee, although they do make you aware of it at the time of booking so no dishonesty there-- just a bit annoying really. Also a slight bunker feel.

Liked: I stayed there for 6 nights, is a very good hostel, the kitchen is very good and with enough space for everyone, I like the music in there creates a good atmosphere. I liked that you have your own locker and I could had good sleep all nights.

Disliked: I dont have complains, everything worked out really nice.

Liked: It has the best hostel kitchen-common room combination I've ever seen in a hostel. There is free pasta and a lot of fridge storage space with a name labeling system. The common room where you eat the meals you cook is also fantastic; cozy, easy to meet people and practical. One of, if not the, best hostel I've ever stayed at.

Disliked: How your stay will go all depends on the type of people you get in your room and their level of snoring or stupid 3AM snack eating with their mouth open so all you hear is chewing noises. Other than that, the male shower room is awaiting some renovations or something as well as the extra kitchen/common room space. When its done it will be great.

Liked: Everything is really clean. Kitchen has all you could need and very well mantained. There is a aupermarket just in front of the hostel to buy whatever you could beed. You have a huge personal locker in the room (included in the price). The area where it is has super nice cafes and bars:)

Liked: Nothing special.

Disliked: No atmosphere. Moreover, both, the bed linen strategy and the part time reception, to reduce costs seem to turn this hostel into a quite sterile, impersonal kind of motel. I was embarrassed as I already knew the hostel from a visit about four years ago. Skanstulls, you did much better then.

Liked: The decor was lovely and the staff were very friendly. We had a private room and bathroom and it was perfect - better quality than some hotels that we have stayed in. Would definitely recommend it.

Disliked: Was a little disappointed (although knew in advance) that we had to pay to hire towels, especially as when we got to the room there were already some included.

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.
