The location is good - a very short walk to Hotorget station. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Free coffee in the kitchen. Breakfast was good. The wifi did not work in the bedroom and it was inconvenient to have to go down to the common area whenever I wanted internet access. The price is reasonable.

There are two good things about this place: the strategic location and the free tea/coffee/pasta. The rest are off-putting. First, they did not reply to customers request for early check in. Apparently, I was not the only person who are facing this issue. Scroll down and you may see a similar case. After 8 hrs of a sleepless overnight bus...

Maybe other rooms are ok, but in a room of barely 4 m2 I am feeling like in a cell. To pay SEK 496.33/night for it seems outrageous to me. The management doesn't even let me talk to them for a refund as I want to move out. The room is not even on the plan of the rooms on...

I was in this hostel only for one night, but my experience was completly good. Ladys in the reception were really nice and they quickly completed my check in. Internet was supposed to be working only in the lobby, but it has been working perfectly in my room as well (109). I reserved single room with bathroom and I got...

The story of my arrival already subtracts 2 out of 5 points from my rating for this hostel. I arrived after the reception closed for that day. I made this clear to the reception a couple of days beforehand. They gave me the front door code and would sent me an e-mail at the day of my arrival with information...

I was only there for one night. Standard hostel fare, nothing particularly good or bad. The showers were a little small. It was also a bit hard to find and it's a bit of a walk from the central bus station. Nice kitchen though and an unlimited supply of freshly brewed coffee - the actual thing, not the instant freeze-dried...

I have been there for one night and slept in a 12 people dorm. The room was not that big, but well used (3 person bunkbeds). Furniture seemed pretty new and the hostel was all clean. I would come here again. It is not far away from cityterminalen which was nice as I arrived from skavsta airport at night. Late...

We had a 2 person room with a own bathroom. There was nothing in the room besides two beds. But it was clean.. so, ok Good price/quality. A metro station is 100m walking.. perfect! It's quite noisy outside.

Stayed one night in a single room with private facilities. Was let down by the small narrow bed, but kitchen area, with free tea and coffee was good, as was the free wifi. Location not hard to find, with tube just around the corner, and fairly central for getting around the city.
