"Lovely big and airy rooms, with plenty of space for your luggage. The deck outside and common room & kitchen downstairs were great to hang out in. Free pasta to cook - excellent! Decent breakfast on offer at the cafe…"

Liked: The staff are excellent at the hostel making everything run smoothly when changing rooms and if we had questions. The breakfast is cheaper than the other hostels we stayed in which meant we bought it rather than getting food in. The location is also very close to the train/bus station.

Disliked: Common room/ area is next to some of the dorms. If you got one of these and were wanting early night etc it could be a little on the loud side.

Liked: Location is good, staff are ok, facilities are good.

Disliked: You need to pay extra fee for not only towels and breakfast, but also linen. The breakfast is very simple. In others hostels I've been before, for the breakfast we pay as an extra, usually I expect something better. One of the girls in the staff didn't know anything to recommend around the city as tour. Basically I needed to find out by myself. Which is ok, but some tips from the staff is always welcome and part of the good atmosphere as we expect.

Liked: Consistently good around the board. No bad points, friendly and fun! A great mix of nationalities and kind of people. If you are there on a Friday you MUST do the viking sauna trip. By far the best thing we did in Stockholm.

Disliked: This is not a dislike but as the viking sauna tour was so good, it would be great to have something similar (something swedish) on the Saturday.

Liked: Convenient location, close to central station, as well as Drottninggatan. Clean and large kitchen with lots of fridges. Free coffee and pasta. They seem to try their best to provide the option to do lots of activities for hostel guests (like sauna), though I only stayed one night. Very secure, with passcodes instead of keys, and lockers in the room as well as in the hallway (in addition to their luggage room).

Disliked: Could be more bathrooms, though I didn't have to wait for a shower, just needed to walk around the hostel to find another one.
