Liked: Skanstulls Hostel has been built in an underground carpark of an apartment building. It's nice and cosy, with a great kitchen and big, clean common bathrooms.

Disliked: It didn't have any windows but you're made aware before booking.

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!

Liked: The staff were extremely helpful and the hostel was very clean. It is situated in the South of Stockholm and has very good prices. It was out of season so a little quiet- but that's to be expected! I would certainly stay here again when I go back to Stockholm! Thanks very much Skanstulls Hostel!

Liked: Friendly and warm atmosphere, helpful staff, very clean, functioning heating system in winter, big lovely kitchen, located close to metro station.

Disliked: No breakfast (but there is a very nice and well organized kitchen for self-catering). Sheets for rent could just be included in the room price since very few people bring their own sheets (probably), at least not international travellers.

Liked: This hostel is clean and well-equipped. Its hipsterish yet cozy decor also suits me well. I spent a night in a 6-bed dorm room but didn't find it crowded or clogged. Thanks to its sufficiently high ceiling that gives enough room to breathe and sit down even on a top bunk. The hostel was quiet at night, which was good for sleeping. I didn't use a kitchen, but at a glance looks clean. Conveniently, there are a good number of toilets and places to wash and shower. The hostel's location in Sodermalm - a neighborhood youth and hipsters in Stockholm's cherish - and closeness to Skansktull station also give me the reasons to consider staying here again.

Disliked: None.

Liked: The location is great. The atmosphere is friendly. The rooms are very individual, a bit kitsch and quirky and have character instead of being boring, clinical hostel accommodation. The kitchen is a great practical idea - it helps save so much money in a country that is notoriously expensive. Perhaps there could be another communal area apart from the kitchen/dining area but the hostel is probably just the right size to be cosy. Free internet access and the use of computers is a huge advantage. This place get s a big "thumbs up" from me!

Disliked: I was a little disappointed that the kitchen didn't have an oven but you can't have everything! It's hard to provide everything to please everyone. Another communal area like a lounge would be good.

Liked: The staff was helpful with recommendations of places to eat in the area. We took them up on it and all proved great. They were also just very friendly and accommodating. Great location just two blocks from the metro and in a fun part of town. Easy to get into the standard sight-seeing areas, but plenty to do and be entertained by right by the hostel.

Disliked: We had read reviews that bathrooms weren't great, but they were very clean and well-stocked when we were there. The showers themselves don't have room for changing, but there are two WCs in the shower room (at least for the ladies) that you can change in if a bit modest. Appreciated them providing computers, but if you can use the wifi on your phone or laptop instead, do. Computers were slow and occasionally kicked us off.

Liked: Huge, spacious rooms. Located near the Metro and right across the road from a supermarket. Modern facilities and spotlessly clean.

Disliked: The laundry service is expensive. No bar or hostel-organized events; it wasn't enjoyable as a solo traveler, especially because the crowd seemed older and tamer.

Liked: Internet connection is quick and the communal kitchen is quite a nice space (albeit underground!) The hostel isn't particularly central but is next to a metro station, and stockholm is quite a small city so this wasn't a problem (c. 30 minutes' walk from the old town.)

Disliked: There wasn't a huge amount of atmosphere when I was here and the dorms are really small (though there are secure lockers and everything was clean). It feels a bit like an underground bunker with very little natural light.
