    Cozy and quiet

    Very quiet and cozy place. Single room was tiny but just enough. Everything clean and in good condition. The rooms seems very sound proof, I hardly noticed there were other guests outside.

    I definitely enjoyed my stay here! Definitely will recommend for those without much preferences. Bedroom and toilets were really clean upon arrival, although we had to lay our bed linens ourselves on top of the additional charges for change of towels/linens. It wasn't too cold/warm in the room, and every room had some sort of fan in it. A plus for me was the communal kitchen with free pasta and coffee, and everyone living here + the staffs did a great job in keeping our shared space clean and tidy!

    Clean and convenient!

    Great hostel in a walkable location. My first night was awful as I got a top bunk that was in the doorway with a cement block above - meaning I hit my head a few times. I asked to change as I was staying another 3 nights and the staff were great and put me in a bottom bed (which was actually the prime one in the room) Clean hostel, good kitchen, helpful staff!

    Very nice budget option in Stockholm

    The Skanstulls Hostel was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was good with plentiful options and so was the Vietnamese coffee. The location was also quite good, only a couple of blocks from the subway station and within walking distance from the port. There also quite many ethnic restaurants as well as supermarkets and bakeries within a few blocks.
