Liked: Very good location. Rooms were quite quiet and facilities were generally clean.

Disliked: As with many other reviews there were several issues with security which staff are not going to fix. They mentioned that the lock on the front door, the credit card machine and many of the lockers in the dorms were only "not working that day and would be fixed tomorrow". I have read reviews from months before my stay with the same issues and while I was there for 3 nights there were no attempts to fix these. Because the common area closes so early people are forced to be in their rooms or the hall ways which can make it noisy. There was only 1 toilet for each gender for a hostel of about 100 people.

Liked: Great location, really friendly staff member, and nice quiet rooms.

Disliked: Charging for bedding. Apparently it's pretty standard in Stockholm but it still feels like you're being ripped off, especially when you're already paying more for a hostel than in most other cities.

Liked: It's right in the middle of Old Town, and the staff are friendly. The rooms are cosy and modern, and the beds are really comfortable. The lockers are large and very secure - really important. There is free filter coffee and pasta for guests, and three PCs for internet access. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Stockholm.

Disliked: Occasionally the bathroom facilities were not spotless.

Liked: The kitchen is really good. The lockers are the safest I saw in a hostel. It is located in the middle of the old town. Pretty decoration. I would come back.

Disliked: Men's toilet has a small high so If you are tall, you have to take care of your head. In man's toilet there is no locker. No reception 24h. The environment is not so friendly because common rooms close at 22.15h

Liked: t was a very comfortable stay. The location was perfect, right in the middle of everything in Old Town. The furniture was nice, especially the bedding. The kitchen was stocked with pots and eating utensils. The guy at the front desk was there during the day and very friendly. The computers were helpful. The bathrooms were okay, and the showers all had curtains. It's important to note that there are no windows in the rooms.

Disliked: There was none of the "free pasta" advertised. The wifi didn't always work, but was okay. It is important to note that there are no windows in the rooms because the hostel is in a basement.

Liked: The location is the best. The guy of reception came to clean my room when I asked for it. I think that the rate 8/10 is fair.

Disliked: I was in a room for 4 just with my friend but maybe for 4 would be too small. I've never understood why in a place where you are paying for sleeping, force you to pay the linen. The bathroom sometimes was a bit dirty but nothing important. Common areas closed at 22

Liked: It si possible to lock yous stuffs with digital coded lock, the chilling room is just great :) There is wireless possibility but not availeable on every place in the hostel , but if u realy need,than just go where there is. So its just not the biggest problem. But anyway they offering internet possibilities with computers to. the air in the room is fresh, there is non-stp air moving, so i can say that i could have a good sleep even in the underground. anyway, together the price worth it for this hostel.
