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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

I had reached this hostel at 1 PM and staff did not allow early check in even before 5 minutes. The check in stars at 2:00 PM. That was very rude of them.

I had a great stay at the Birka Hostel. I was there for four nights. Bunkbeds in de 8-person dorm can be a little bit noisy, I think mine was fine though, enough room to stow my backpack on the bed as well, the rest of the room didn't really have space for luggage. It was nice to be able... More

My girlfriend booked us the place and when we got there is was a bit of a hike to the room. They hadn't cleaned the room when we arrived but they changed the sheets and cleaned up whilst we went out walking.

“We were on the first floor where most of the rooms were double. At the end of the corridor it was all very quiet.”

“Ask for a middle bed. There are three per stack, the bottom one might as well be on the floor and the top is too high.”
