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.

Liked: Fantastic hostel, one of the very best I have seen in the world (been to over 40). The rooms are great, very warm and feel like home. Free WiFi in the rooms, as well as heaps of FAST new computers to use. Free pasta, plenty of fridge space for drinks. The hostel has a very social feel and as a long backpacker it was so easy to meet people. Every night in the common room everyone shares dinner, drinks and heads out. Many people class this as the best hostel in Europe, you would struggle to find better I think.

Disliked: None.

Liked: There were alot of people here, from young backpackers to elderly people, which was interesting. Sometimes the kitchen space was too noisy because of the young tourists, but I think it's fine. Free pasta is great! Rooms were very spacious and clean too.

Disliked: The sauna. I actually didn't know where I could take off my clothes, cuz the door to the sauna was facing the corridor, where everyone passes by.... I was really tired and also freezed, and was looking forward to using the sauna, but I couldn't...

Liked: Great location and atmosphere - probably one of the most sociable hostels I've ever stayed in. Staff were great too. Bedrooms were comfy.

Disliked: The only slight downside was the bathrooms - there weren't that many and the private ones were a bit of a trek away. Having said that, once you were in there, the showers were good and hot.
