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.

Liked: Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Facilities were clean especially the bathrooms. Communal kitchen, laundry facilities, and computers and printers were a great addition. Location could not have been any more central. Super easy to get around the city. The supermarket was only a few blocks away.

Disliked: Wi-fi was difficult to access in the rooms. Some residents did not adhere to the no-shoes inside the hostel policy.

Liked: Couldn't ask for anything more! Great location only 5 minutes walk from the train station. Upon arrival the staff were more than friendly, very chatty, welcoming and pleasant. The hostel itself was very modern, clean and to be honest we couldnt believe generally just how nice the place was going by the price we paid. Rooms are very clean and secure, facilities are top notch. Me and 2 friends were in Stockholm for one night to see swedish house mafia and couldnt have asked for more from this hostel.
