Sorry to hear that you were not able to do the Kayak tour. The tour guide had to cancel on very short notice because a family member was taken ill and need to get asistance straight away. Hopefully you had a wonderful time in Stockholm...More

Staff are rude & unwelcoming, except Gabriel was cool and helpful. The old guy that checked me in was the worst. I arrived at 8:30pm, there was a pub crawl advertised as leaving at 8, I asked where they went so I could meet up...More

Thanks very much for you review. We do offer female dorm rooms. It's unfortunate your fellow room mates were a bit noisy. Hopefully you got a bit of sleep in the end. We offer ear plugs in reception. Welcome back anytime! Kind regards Charmaine CBP

1. Breakfast is 55 SEK. It's worth the price as everything is expensive in Stockholm. The breakfast includes a sandwich, a glass of juice, a jar of yogurt and a jar of fruit. Coffee, tea, and water are free of charge. Cereal... More
