Liked: close to station, nice kitchen and good social areas and wifi

Disliked: the staff often took ages to answer questions because they were busy with other people but it seemed like really they were just chatting to their friends as they people they helped werent staying at the hostel. More powerpoints in the dorm rooms it lead to animosity in the room if things got unplugged to charge. dont like paying for linen

Liked: This hostel has a ton of character! The staff are very friendly and helpful. The common areas were conducive to socializing. Each room had its own fridge and set of baskets in the kitchen so finding your food is easy. The movie nights are great for meeting other travellers and brushing up on your Swedish. The location is close to Stockholm Central Station so going anywhere is easy.

Disliked: A very minor complaint that was absolutely not the fault of the staff, a fuse blew overnight so the room keys weren't scanning for a while, which took me by surprise, and I had a flight in less than 3 hours. To the staff's credit, the overnight person who was on site fixed the problem in time for me to catch a quick shower and catch the express train to the airport.

Liked: This hostel is awsome! It is really central and most important things are within walking distance. It was easy to get to know new people because there are many activities offered by the hostel. I always felt comfortable and I will come back in summer!

Disliked: Maybe there could be a wider choice of breakfast. But for this price it was quite good.

Hi,

Liked: Everything, there is a friendly vibe between travellers, the guy at reception first night went out of his way to make sure I knew where everything was, free coffee, tea and pasta and printing for plane/bus tickets is a plus.And fairly central location.I have been travelling around the world for more than a year now and this is one of the best hostels I've visited. Not enough of complaint that it deserves to be a dislike, but the wifi can be a bit patchy, but there is 7 different connections so just search around.
