Liked: This is a very safe and secure hostel. There are daily codes to get into the hostel, as well as the rooms.

Good location for sightseeing, and a good distance from the main terminal (5 min walk).

Liked: this was by far the best hostel i have stayed at. the staff, facilities and rooms were all great and there was even a sauna! i also loved the organised events put on by the hostel, with my favourite being the swedish meatball experience where you get to make and eat your own meatballs, whilst meeting great people from the hostel. the character of this hostel is also true scandinavian, adding to the experience.

Disliked: the only thing i wasn't so keen on was the communal showers - although they were single gender, they were only divided by a piece of relatively see through glass. i heard that this is a very common european thing though and used one of the many private bathrooms instead!
