Nice little Room for overnight stay”

Me and my partner had to stay overnight near to Stockholm central and the location of this hostel was perfect (approx 12-15min walk from Stkhlm centralen). We booked a seperate room which was small but had a seperate toilet which was quite convinient in that budget. Environment was peaceful and room was Clean. We came little earlier than the usual checkin time (2hour) however the receptionist helped us to leave our luggage in the hostel's secure room before the usual checkin time which allowed us to roam around a bit in the surrounding area (Norrmalm) without luggage . Early checkout was also smooth and we dropped the keycard as instructed before leaving. Overall, I was satisfied with my choice as we were not looking something fancy apart from spending a peaceful night in our budget. So i would recommend this place if someone has similar needs and looking for budgeted options. Regards.

Mostly great. Other guests were the largest problem. ”

80m to the subway entrance was a welcomed surprise. The living quarters and linens were clean and comfortable. The kitchen is not very functional (no stove) and the coffee machine was broken during my stay. (Although they did provide alternatives. ) Because of the reasonable room rates I learned that some locals use the hostel as a party crash site and spent all weekend staggeringly drunk and hanging out in the common areas. This also lead to an untidy kitchen but it was cleaned by staff each morning. I was in an 8 bed female dorm room which was great night one, but the second night someone had the bright vanity lights on while watching YouTube until past 2 am. The same guest got up the next morning and played music from the speaker of her phone. At its price point it would be tough to find anything else, but this could explain the disrespectful attitude of some of the guests. I would stay here again without hesitation but recommend staying away from common areas late at night.

I got stolen here!”

Good hostel for the price. The location is right in the heart of the city. The place itself is clean, there is a kitchen and the beds are quite comfy and with linens included. However, I got stolen at this place. Someone inside my room opened my backpack and got my debt card. This person spent €300 around the city and even paid to extend one more week in the same hostel, probably in the same room. I only do not recommend this hostel because I told them what happened and they did not try to see who was the guy (easy to find because he used my card in the reception) and did not answer me how this guy could use my card to pay €59 without my pin code. My card is blocked to purchase over €30 without my pin code. I assume they do not care in help the guests or they should be involved.

it's a value for money. it is actually a lot cheaper than most hostels and they offer a discounted breakfast meal during winter. the rooms are nice and clean as well. no air conditioning during the summer if you're curious.

Private rooms are ok but the hostel guests are crazy”

The location of the hostel is perfect, private rooms are ok but people who live there are a bit crazy. They make parties in the kitchen, talking in the corridor the whole night and you hear it. If you need a rest, choose another option

I like: low price, and the location is so central I don't like: # it's not clean, though not so dirty. # I stayed there in summer, it was hot and no fan was provided. # Check-in time was not clear in the hostel page when booking, i stated that I'm coming between 11 and 12, however, the check-in was at 2.

Réception is open only 10-17, check out is before 10 but nobody will be there so if you need to leave your luggage in the luggage room you have to be there at 10. The room was not so clean and it was super cold, not so good for winter
