Super charming and clean. The location is convenient, it's close to the metro station, there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance and a supermarket right across the street that's open till late. The hostel is a basement hostel but you would never guess it because they have managed to condition it so well.

Comfy beds, clean common areas and friendly staff. The kitchen is well equipped and the hostel is very well located in a calm quarter of Stockholm. I would definitely recommend it. It is very close to good restaurants (not too expensive) and supermarkets. There is also some free food in the kitchen. Always free tea and coffee.

This hostel is located close to Skanstull station so you can easily get there by subway from Stockholm T-central. I stayed in a 4-bed room. It's kind of under the ground so most of the rooms don't have a window. But it's very convenient and comfortable staying there. The atmosphere is good and friendly, you meet people from different countries...

This hostel is a good option if you are looking for an affordable option with an acceptable location. It is located within an acceptable walking distance from city centre or otherwise you have a metro station just 2 minutes away. I took a private room; which had a nice decoration and a comfortable bed and a TV but it was...

Staying in SoFo & Medborgarplatsen

Neighbourhood Profile
SoFo & Medborgarplatsen
Throughout the last decades these neighborhoods transformed from a rather quiet residential area into the birthplace of Swedish hipsterism and became Sweden’s main hub for new fashion labels, independent coffee shops and innovative gastropub concepts. Despite their extreme transformation, SoFo (South of Folkungagatan) & Medborgarplatsen managed to hold on to their residential charm and quietness and became one of the most sought-after places to live among young people in Stockholm. This neighborhood is also home to Sweden’s highest student hall, Skrapan, which used to be the head office of the tax authorities and now combines a mix of student hall and shopping mall with a bar on top.
