Fresh and modern
No fuss living near city centre. Super clean and modern common facilities with no passive aggressive signs like there usually are in Swedish common areas. Solid, decent breakfast for the price! Would have paid a little extra for hot meals/bacon in the morning and tea/coffee around the clock, otherwise super happy with my stay.

Nice stay downtown
Easy checkout despite that there was no staff there, clean rooms, comfortable beds, lockers in rooms, great wifi, charging station by the beds. Good breakfast, though it would be nice if it could be available until a little longer than 0830. Two blocks away from the main square which is convenient.

Nice week's stay
I had a nice stay and was there all week! Nice little breakfast and my room was private one. The only downside was it gets a little noisy at night with people opening and closing their doors. But with ear plugs, was fine.

4/10 Fair

Unorganized and missing info in the description
I found out when I got there the staff is only around for 1 hour out of the day. If you need linens call the after hours number. The room was kind of a free for all. Grab whatever blanket or pillow looked unclaimed and make it yours. The bathroom smelled of urine as well. I was not in the mood for dealing with the mess so I payed for a hotel that night. Basically if you need something extremely cheap and don't mind the lack of organization this place will be ok. Personally I'd rather pay a little more and have a better hostel experience like other's I've stayed at in Sweden.

Bara plus
Rent och fräscht både på rummet och toalett/dusch som fanns i korridoren. Frukosten var över förväntan för ett hostel. Jättefräsch och mycket att välja på.
