Liked: I really loved the interiors of the hostel - there is a number of common areas, where people can hang out, equipped with comfy chairs and sofas. It looked very pretty and definitely more hotel-like than hostel-like. The whole place was very cosy. Definitely one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed in, if not the nicest one ever. Also I absolutely loved the location. Just a stone throw away from the small streets of the Old Town, while the building itself is located on a quay overlooking water, ships and islands. Super pretty.The breakfast was included in the price (and it is rare to find a hostel in Stockholm that actually provides breakfasts at the first place) - and it was a very nice breakfast. It's a continental breakfast with quite a wide range of what to choose from.Also the towel was available for free in the room, despite the website said it would be available for an additional fee. So that was a nice surprise.The cleaning lady was cleaning the room every day (which I didn't expect). Cleanliness seems to be a priority there.I was staying in a private single room, so that's another plus - that this hostel provides single private rooms.There are 2 kitchens in the hostel and they were big enough to accommodate everyone and also very clean.I felt safe in there.All in all, I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel very much and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.The staff was very helpful and friendly - everything went absolutely smooth. They were present at the reception at all times.

Disliked: 1) There was a big window in the room and it was super drafty. There were some ventilation slits on top of the window, which seemed to be impossible to close - I had to improvise and temporarily block them with some paper tissues. There was only a small radiator in the room and I needed to shove the bed right next to it and was sleeping with my back leaning against the radiator to make myself warm. I was staying there in mid-December and it was really cold outside (sub-zero). So the cold in the room was a minus for me.2) Wi-fi wasn't working anywhere in the hostel for me. But there are PCs with internet available for free in the hostel. Although some of them didn't have internet connection, so the final number of the working ones was quite small. But there was always a PC available, no queues.3) At the beggining I had difficulties to use the door leading from the lift/stairs to the main corridor of the floor. For going in, there is a keybord with a code (that was working fine), but there was nothing like that on the other side of the door, when I wanted to use it for going out. It turned out there was a lock on the door that needed to be manually opened, but you needed to turn it into the opposite direction than one might think. So at the beginning I thought that door was only for a one-way use and I spent long time looking for an alternative way out of the floor, which was quite frustrating. The house is really big and it is a sort of a maze. But once you've been there for a while (and know how to use the door in both ways ;-) ), it becomes much more pleasant. There was more of us, who had the same issue with the door, so I thought I must write about it here in order to spare other people of the hassle with this.4) There was a noise from the main road - cars passing by. Maybe I am a light sleeper, but I was aware of the noise at night.

Liked: I really loved the location, the hostel is located directly in the Old Town, which is great as there are many restaurants, bars, supermarkets and stuff! Breakfast is free.

Disliked: It was not that clean, there was no such thing like a cozy common area and there weren't enough chairs and tables for breakfast. I had to eat while I was standing. It is not a good hostel to meet other travellers.

Liked: Unfortunately the only good thing related to this hostel is the location. They have no lockers, toilets and showers quite disgusting. Noisy neighbourhood.
