If the hostel is clean and conveniently located to many attraction, then I'm sold. This hostel, fits that description. It's located in the old city, right next to a harbor. It's convenient to do the hop on hop off buses (which i totally recommend). The internet is stable and fast. One little issue may be the small showers that get... More

The room was located in the basement with almost no ventilation and no possibilities to open the window. I felt confined. An extremely small kitchen with limited seating. Difficult to prepare any meals. Although it is a nice location I would recommend, especially families, to find somthing more "spacious".

The hostel is in a good location, close to attractions, cafes and drinking holes etc, it's about 1.5km from the main train/bus station, there are two train station close by the hostel. However, the rooms are tiny, there's no room to stand let alone space for your luggage. Personally I think it's a lot of money to pay for a... More

Plus: good location for visiting Old Town, friendly and helpful staff, seemed clean and safe. However, the 6 bed room dorm is too small for 6 people with luggage and their staff (tiny lockers inside the room). To reach the small 2 toilets from the 6 beds dorm you need to go through 2 doors (with safety codes); showers are... More

The only positive side is the Old Town location by the water, but you can get a much better stay for the same price only a couple of subway stops away. The single room I stayed in was tiny like a box with no space to move around just to sit down on the bed. Linen was clean, but the... More

Located on Gamla Stan you have access to many areas of the city and the ability to really enjoy Old Town. The facilities are clean and staff was helpful. The layout is quite spread out with multiple doors to enter each room and showers down in a basement which can be a bit far depending on where your room is... More

Hi This is definitely one of the best locations to stay in Stockholm. The hostel is clean and has the bare minimum of facilities you need. Drawback is that it's quite noisy with the road outside and other tenants roaming in the hallways. Also there are only two toilets. We stayed in the basement, in the four people dorm. It's... More

We were looking for an affordable place to sleep while visiting the old city. 2 Kronor is a good price quality solution. I liked the location of the hostel as well as the atmosphere the building breaths. However there are some small downsides as well. The doors slam pretty loud so I woke up multiple times at night even with... More

I recently stayed 3 nights with a friend in the 6-bed mixed dorm. The location is great. It's practically within walking distance of almost everything touristy. The staff was very kind. We arrived 6 hours before check in after a long flight. They were fully booked, but still allowed us to come in, wash up, and have some breakfast. The... More

The location of 2KRONOR is perfect. You couldn’t ask for a better location. It’s located in the old quarter and on the outside of it so you can over look the bay. Very nice. It’s attached to a hotel and the signs out side make it fairly easy to find. It’s a smaller hostel maybe holding 10 rooms. They have... More
