Rooms were clean an came with a tv. There was a kitchen upstairs to store our own food and the hostel is in a good location! However in the morning the staff were moody and unhelpful. The breakfast was a poor selection with almost nothing available for vegans. When I asked if they had anything they pretty much grunted at...

Stayed one night, working-visit to Karlstad. Very happy all in all. Everything one needs, for a very good price, plus breakfast also at the best of prices! Nice lady in the reception. It could not be more central, close to the railway station, shops and right in the shopping district. Close to supermarket, McDonalds, many cafees and restaurants, and other...

Carlstad City Hostel has a very favourable location in the city center of Karlstad. Situated only a few minutes walk from the railway station (no taxi needed) and only a few minutes walk from the central square of the city this is a good option for the budget traveller to stay. It is cheap alternative but it is good. The...

We booked a three persons hostel room which costed 750 SEK. Wooden beds, decent mattresses. Extremely small shower combined with toilet, separated by curtain. View on the street, not too noisy though. Be aware that hostel charges 70 SEK for the bedsheets and towels per person, which does not make it such a cheap option if you travel in company....

I visited the hostel when I was bikepacking in Sweden. Everything worked, the hostel is good value in the city center next to many shops and restaurants. Nice breakfast for 60 kr (no warm food but still good). Staff very friendly. Would come here again.

Very basic room and tiny bathroom according to North American standards...but....we are in Sweden, more than adequate. Internet was a bit slow to hook up to. Breakfast was fantastic !! What a great...

Stayed here for one night with 12 school kids en route to a DofE expedition. Clean, warm and tidy. Ideal for a one or two night stop over. Staff were very helpful especially as some of us had forgot bedding and did a cheap deal for us

At reception was a young man, Mokhtar, who received us ( we were a large group in many rooms ) and explained everything kindly and with patience. he gave us the code to the door so we could come up later in the evening. Don't forget to ring and get the code if you will be late because the reception...

It is in the city centre, so it was quite easy to find. The receptionist was very helpful and the rooms are clean and comfy. However, the shared kitchen is very dirty, with dishes unwashed and bottles of spices and sauces left all over the place. The microwaves and fridges have also obviously not been cleaned in a long while.

“Bring earplugs - the walls are quite thin and if you are unlucky to have noisy neighbors, it will be a challenge.”

“We were facing the street, was not too bad, just be sure to close your curtains if you want privacy. Window only opens a crack, just enough for fresh air.”
