Stayed here in a private room for four nights, purely because of the prices in Stockholm. It was difficult to find using the map - I suggest following the directions attached to confirmation if you book in advance. I doubt there would be a double room within the hostel as I imagine most private rooms are bunk beds like ours was. Linen is not included in the price either and payable on check-in - about 15 Swedish Kroner each per night.
The hostel has a good kitchen, and use of the fridge is provided with a 50 Swedish Kroner deposit. The fridge is broken into sections with locks so your stuff is safe.
The room, as often described, is very small, but quite modern, and the bathroom is nice and clean. the corridors outside the rooms are great, especially looking down from the corridor with the view down to the bottom - looks like every old prison movie.
There was no restaurant/bar there, closest was about a 5-10 minute walk back towards the metro station. There you will find an outdoor restaurant which seems to have live music every night, a tapas bar and a couple of italian places. there is also an indian and a cheap takeaway pizza and kebab place down one of the side streets if you feel your wallet is taking a beating. There is also a supermarket and bottle shop (open limited hours) next to the metro station if you would rather cook yourself.
The metro station is about 4 stops to the central station, and there are also some buses that go in that direction as well nearby, but we didn't use them.
Overall probably the cheapest place in Stockholm, but a couple staying in bunk beds for four nights, and the travelling to the metro thrown in, I don't think that accommodation in Stockholm will ever please the budget traveller.
