Liked: While I am not the most generous person with compliments but it is almost impossible to find any fault in this hostel. For what it is, it had exceeded my exoneration of what could be expected from a hostel.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Pleasant atmosphere and really nice beds.

Disliked: The only problem that I found in the room was that there they don't have anything blocking the day light that come through the windons at morning. And the fact that they don't offer free coffe.

Liked: This possibly the best hostel ever. The staff are lovely and so are the facilities. There's a great outdoor area and the kitchen ( with free pasta ) is so good if you're trying to do Stockholm like a cheap skate. The lockers under the beds are super handy too.

Disliked: Nothing!

Liked: Great hostel, with lovely atmosphere & incredibly helpful & friendly staff. Very clean & tidy, in a great location. Kitchen facilties & the various common room areas were great (especially handy for recovering from the night before after checking out!) It was a pleasure to stay here.

Disliked: A few more toilets & shower rooms would've been handy, especially upstairs as walking through the kitchen & common room in pjs wasn't ideal (a very minor issue though!)

Liked: Looks like they do a good job of encouraging activities and fun, but I wasn't there for long enough to try those things out.

Disliked: Many rooms are in the basement with very little natural light. Private showers are in demand and the non-private mens ones had almost see-though opaque glass between cubicles. Why would anybody think installing those is a good idea. Also breakfast is only 1 small sandwhich, a glass of juice, and tea or coffee; and it's policed so you can't have any more than that. No cereal at all, no bread meat and spreads. It's not worth it at all IMO, but at least they gave me a refund when I declined to have it.

Liked: Excellent hostel! Comfy beds, lots of great little areas to hang out. Curtain on some beds if you need privacy. Clean and plenty of showers!

Disliked: Sheets cost extra and there was no toilet in the room I was in or lockers. However they are both just outside the door.
