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 was made to sit in kitchen area for one hour whereas I needed desperate sleep. Coffee is served free of cost that too without milk. You...

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...

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. There is an Urban Deli nearby for cheap coffee (coffee is a must in Sweden) and food. In...

Great room in central area. Croudy in the small kitchen though and not very easy to make food when only one cooking place available. Recomend the mongolian resturant on the corner on Svea-road. Was planning a trip to Grøna lund at djurgården where you also find the wasa museum among other attractions. You would need to take the trolley out...

Very Clean and nice hostel in the center of Stockholm. Everything is very close.. I liked it. I was there with my dude and we stayed for 7 days in a private room with private bathroom. It was Value for Money i think.

I dont know how to review this. Service was good and helpful. Shower was good. Everything seemed nice and clean even the kitchen. But the beds were terrible. I don't know if I should expect anything else from a Hostel but common it's the only thing I really need from the Hostel is a place to sleep and when the...

We were pleasantly surprised by our visit at this hostel. We stayed in a private room that slept 4 people with a private bathroom. We had 2 single beds and a bunk bed. All beds were comfy enough and it was fairly quiet on an evening so we got a decent nights sleep. Bed linen and towels were provided. It...

Horrible hostel with dissaponting service. We left our bags at the baggage room at 9 in the morning since the check can be done at 2 o clock. We visited Stockholm, which is a beautiful town, and came back at 10. To our surprise we found out that the luggage room is available from 8 to 8 o clock in...

We stayed there for two nights. Excellent location (city centre, subway is 200m, city library and Lidl close by etc). Clean. The room is very small and from the evacuation plan we could see that most of the rooms are tiny. We were on the first floor. Away from heavy traffic. Breakfast could benefit from some improvements: choice of vegetables,...
