Liked: It's very clean for a hostel, and there are couches and decent computers available to surf on. Definitely a plus.

Disliked: When we arrived for a late check-in, it turned out that one has to rent sheets (25SEK per person). Of course, this was indicated somewhere in the fine print, but I'm pretty sure a significant amount of people miss that, leading to a bit of an unpleasant aftertaste, feeling like we're exploited as a captive audience. I mean, who doesn't want sheets? I also was a bit disappointed that there was very little staff presence. It felt a bit as if I had landed in a traveller anarchy (which isn't bad on its own, but it's nice to have a general information point). It felt a bit more like a factory than a hospitality outfit (a very clean factory, though, which was nice).

Liked: Very social. The common room area with free computers and shared kitchen meant that everyone had places to socialise.

Disliked: I chose this hostel for the 'sauna trip'. But this was not on offer during my stay. Also, breakfast was very expensive and not filling.

Liked: Very Nice, urban, Cool hostel, Nice staff, The sauna was an added bonus. Easy walk into town where all the bars were.

Disliked: Our Double room was on the ground floor, right next to the courtyard, where the decking and social areas were, so if you didn't have the curtains closed, you get the whole world seeing in, not really a dislike, just the luck of the draw of rooms! Still an awesome stay!
