It was a cool trip in Stockholm. The staff was very friendly and the activities like the bike tour throught Stockholm and the swedish meatball class were interesting. I've met so many cool people there.

The hostel is well situated in a central area not far from the main train station. Fab décor, funky and unusual objects in every nook and cranny - old cameras, ancient skis, great art and posters everywhere, cool café. It all looks great and is extremely clean - we saw the cleaner at least twice a day. The beds were...

Very nice hostel. Good location people working there were helpful with good advices about the city. Two bad points, we couldnt rent the bicycles because they were all used for a tour organised by the hostel. And the bed was really to soft. When I woke up my back was painful...and Im usually not complicated about that. Otherwise everything was...

Although the rooms are relatively small in terms of the amount of bunk beds in the room (+), they aren't extremely large. However, there are lockers that you can close with a padlock and most importantly: the rooms are cleaned every day. The common room and kitchen are rather cool and cosy: every room has its own fridge. Moreover, you...

Erik, Olly and the crew run a great hostel! Central location in Stockholm and awesome nightly activities! I would recommend to solo travellers - the common areas were also big and modern. Would stay here again. Tack!

Although i only stayed here for one night and didnt use all the facilities provided nor join the activities at the hostel, i still agree with other reviewers/travellers that this place is a good choice for a low budget accommodation in the centre of Stockholm. I booked the 6 beds mixed-dorm Ensuite. This room type fit perfectly for me; it...

Good size for a hostel, lots of amenities, good outdoor space, cheap bike rentals, interesting set up but I liked it. I didn't think the free pasta would be much of a perk for me but ended up eating lots and enjoying it. Highly recommend!

First time backpacking overseas by myself and the reception people were so lovely. Met a lot of solo travellers like myself, which made it very easy to befriend everyone. Rooms were nice, nice cozy areas everywhere and lots of areas to hang out and meet new people. Excellent staff, excellent care, excellent experience! I recommend this place for everyone :)
