                      6.6

                      Good facilities and great location - within a decent walking distance to all the major sites in Stockholm. The addition of a kitchen was a welcome one and the breakfast, although simple, was enough to give you a good start into the day. The staff were also very helpful.

                      Unfortunately my main gripe was based on something that couldn't be helped by the hostel - the building work that is going on across the road at the moment. It was pretty loud in the morning. Based on the proximity to bars, there were sometimes bar-goers outside the hostel late at night, so it wasn't always so quiet.

                      I liked the place it was. And the breakfast, which included toasts, butter and corns and smth else. And pasta is always available. Also the linings and the towel. The shower is separate and for one persone. Toilets are clean, yes.

                      The rooms are quite dark. And in my room, which was on the first floor, wу cant open the windows, coz they were locked.

                      Location; location; The location was great: close to central station; and the rest of the city. Internet available is great asset.

                      The fact that no service - room cleaning was available even though we spent 9 days in the hotel.

                      Location

                      For young students backpackers, hostel is ok. Otherwise, stay away,

                    • Family with children
                      7.0

                      I love the location. And the price is OK in Stockholm, a big city.

                      The tripple room is very small for three people. It would be better and more convenient if the reception is open for 24 hours.

                      Walking distance from the center, clean, quiet. Although it's without breakfast on Booked.net, simple breakfast was included. Email confirmation received immediately after the reservation on Booked.net, including a map.

                      I would never choose a room without bathroom but I could not find anything else in Stockholm close to the center for a reasonable price. (Offers: "no window"..."no bathroom"). First night 2 guys were knocking at my door at 4:30 am (!) claiming that my room is theirs...it was clearly the staff's mistake, very annoying.

                      The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. I was glad to find a room for 3 people with an en suite bath. A rarity in hostels! Really happy to have a lift and a nice kitchen downstairs that was clean and bright! I'd stay there again.

                      The mattresses were thin and not very comfortable and the pillows were too few and filled with uncomfortable foam chunks. They could do better.

                      This is a hostel not a hotel, so if you are happy to make your own bed then the room we had was reasonably sized and the price is great for something that is a 5 minute walk from the centre of town. Internet worked fine and was free. All the furniture is budget Ikea but I cannot complain about the price. Breakfast is free and pretty basic but nice, you have to wash your own dishes etc we enjoyed out stay.

                      Close to almost everything, cheap for Stockholm's standards, really good for a hostel...

                      ... but still basic. The photos are kind of deceiving: the rooms look much older and not-so-neat in real.

                      Location of hotel is near to the main city attraction and Drottninggatan, the pedestrian main street in the city. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. Complimentary standard breakfast was included.

                      The dorm rooms are mixed between male and female.

                      Great location, with great facilities capable of handling big groups or smaller duos.
