Pros: Together with my boyfriend I stayed for four nights in Älvnära Bed & Breakfast. Monnika and her husband were very hospitable, courteous and helpful. We felt comfortable and welcomed right from the start. Our room was as described: clean, well-kept and comfortably furnished – as well as the rest of the house, including a well-equipped kitchen, a comfortable living and dining area as well as seating possibilities in the garden. The toilets and shower rooms were always in perfect condition. Breakfast was good, especially the homemade bread, and we were able to set the breakfast times flexibly. We could park our car free of charge and without any problems on a private parking lot. Monnika and her husband gave us many tips for trips in the area and were always interested in our experiences – we had very pleasant conversations. If we're back in town, we'll be happy to come back!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great, good selection, you could make your own waffles which was a nice touch. The restaurant was gorgeous, set inside an old-style huge dining room with a really high ceiling with antique ornamentation. Because it was summer we could sit outside by the river which was lovely.

The air condition was super when we had spend a whole very hot day looking at things.

Although i had informed the request form that we would arrive earlier! They charged us extra money for bed sheets and towels, something that isn't mentioned in hostels policy. The room was very dirty (floors, wc, walls ), the bed substrates had hairs and crumbs. We asked for another room and they accept, but it was in the same condition so we asked for surfaces cleaner and we cleaned the room by ourselves! The wc is tiny and when you take a bath everything inside get wet! And if you wonder why we stayed there and we did not leave, it's because we were so tired and so late to find another place to stay for one night! And of course we had paid!

STF Hostel Karlstad - Karlstad - Building
11
7.9 Good (453 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Located in Karlstad, STF Hostel Karlstad is within a 5-minute drive of Wermland Opera and Town Hall. Featured amenities include laundry facilities, microwave in a common area, and refrigerator in a common area. Free self parking is available onsite.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: No better than a basic average. They did have a little glutenfri bread.
Cons: A very very noisy hostel mostly used by in-coming workers. This hostel is advertized now mostly for a working clientele instead of tourists and families. No problem with people working except that the hostel is very active and noisy starting 5.30. The doors close very noisily in each corridor and the walls shake - sleeping becomes impossible for the regular tourist.
7.1 Good
Pros: Room was comfortable, breakfast good and they accommodated us getting up early for the Rally too. Interesting building.
Cons: Bathroom facilities very basic, even for a Hostel.
7.5 Good
Cons: Ground floor room was not optimal since there is a lot of people in and out of the kitchen next door to our room. Had to sleep with ear plugs. We have been happier before with a room upstairs where we have not experienced this.
7.9 Good
Pros: Price and cleanliness.
Cons: It was sooo hot on the third floor. It would help to have a fan.
7.9 Good
Pros: Good breakfast, cozy beds, clean rooms and showers.
Cons: The guest kitchen could be much better equipped.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great beds, Nice views from upper floor. Great breakfast. Cool manager. Quite rooms (if you don't open the window). Free parking! Nice and decent visitors. An old and beautiful building that use to be an army facility with some memorials about the past military time, but you don't notice them if you don't look for them. Very cool. Very near the city center, a small walk for 7-10min tops.
Cons: You get what you pay for + breakfast.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I had a beautiful room, the front desk staff were incredible, breakfast was charged for, but very nice (and a good value), the hostel kitchen and dining area (with big windows) is one of the nicest I've seen (& it is open 24 hours), there is a restaurant next door, a very good bakery just down the hill, and it is a 10 minute, scenic walk to downtown. I was there for a special event, and the hostel started breakfast at 05:00 to accommodate us.
Cons: It is clearly stated in the write up, but keep in mind when reception closes. If your arrival or departure differs from their open hours, call them and ask for suggestions. Also, if walking up stairs is a problem, check with the reception before booking. There are big beautiful staircases, but rooms seem to be on floors above main.

7.5 Good
Cons: I used to stay at this hotel twice a year for the last 4-5 years. Unfortunately, I should note a decrease in the quality of services. Breakfast has become a little worse - the last time there was no fruit and cottage cheese. As I travel by car and it is important for me to be able to use the spa after a long day of driving. This summer, the Turkish bath did not work at all, the sauna was turned on only after my request, but it would heat up for quite some time. Access to the pool was also difficult, because of the closed doors after the pool I had to go through the restaurant

Cons: Beds are a bit small
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Location was good for our overnight stay. The breakfast offerings were excellent. Nice murals on the hall walls.
Cons: Hard to get in and out due to construction in front of hotel. Not their fault. First room we were assigned did not have privacy curtain, only sheers. They are in the process of replacing them and we asked for another room. We were given a balcony room at no extra charge. It was much nicer. The only negative was the big wad of chewing gum above the headboard. Ugh! We did not mention as staff had been so accommodating but I can't see how cleaning crew could miss it.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was pleasure and delight to be greeted by the staff at the front-desk. She even upgraded my room at no extra cost and gave a detailed overview of the facilities offered. Breakfast was superb with lots of vegetarian options and many staff in attendance to help. Great place to stay, sauna and swim after a long day at golf course nearby. My room had a balcony overlooking the swimming pool which added to our relaxing cup of coffee. Worth appreciating are the hotel corridors with paintings on the wall paper itself, depicting local life. Kudos to the artist. Thanks to the check-out staff with big eye-lashes, who patiently completed the formalities with a smile, even after the night shift.

Pros: Clean and modern hotel with big rooms. Bathroom was spacious and the bed was comfortable. They offer free dinner and breakfast and even fika. Everything was delicious and they went out of their way to make me gluten free pancakes for breakfast. It's located across the train station and it's very close to a mall with a big supermarket. I will definitely stay here every time I visit Karlstad.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast buffet was really nice, the bed was comfortable and everything was clean. Across the street from central station, which for us was perfect since we had an early train.
Cons: Dinner was also included in the price, but we had a really late check in (22:30) because of our traveling so me missed it. Everything around the hotel was closed so we did not have any options to grab something to eat. Other hotels have some cold food available for guests in this situation or room service. Maybe it could be improved in the future.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice location, really fancy breakfast.
Cons: Superior room with very small bathroom -- shower almost non existent. Dinner (included in price) was nice, but note that it is a buffet, not a normal sit-down dinner.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is really amazing: literally round the courner from the railway station and in the middle of historical center, it has an excellent location. The building is really nice and looks new. Our room was spacious, with a nice window view and really good shower (great water pressure - very important!) The breakfast was really good and variable. In general, the question of food is brilliantly solved: we had breakfast and dinner included in the price and from 3 to 6 pm they also served free bakery/cookies and teas/coffees at the bar. The bar was pretty good too: it was open till about 11 pm (which seems to be pretty late for Karlstad) and were ready to make us some food/snacks anytime. The staff was happy to solve any problems. First they managed to sort out a minor misunderstanding with our room and changed it for us, then when I explained that we will be missing dinner one of the evenings they were ready to keep some food for us from the dinner.
Cons: Some of the rooms have windows facing the inner hall - it is pretty claustrophobic + you are not allowed to open them for the fire security reasons. As a result: there is no air whatsoever. We were first given this kind of a room, but asked to change it for another one with a window. The staff was ready to help so there was no problem in the end. Another thing I can think of is that the waiters at breakfast are really slow with cleaning tables: there are not many tables and way more people at the hotel, so everything was occupied every time I was about to have a meal, and once people were leaving the dirty dishes could stay there for a good half hour. Once I had whole breakfast surrounded by the leftovers of somebody's food and noone cleaned it even after I left.
