We enjoyed our stay in STF Gardet. It's not terribly far from the Gardet metro stop, though it would be a bit much if one had a lot of luggage. I'd say about a 10 minute walk away. The hostel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was small but clean and comfortable. The linens and towels are provided... More

About 4 km from the city center, but well connected by bus and subway. Plenty of parking on the street. Really friendly and helpful staff. Low quality breakfast: very few choices, and only small portions of each available. Medium size rooms, more cleaning necessary.

This is a good choice for budget stay. Haven't been trying budget stay for years and the last stay was a great experience. The hotel isn't really near to Gardet T-station and bus ride is recommended if you are carrying big luggage. Otherwise it's a pleasant 20 minutes walk to the station. Our room was clean and comfortable, equipped with... More

We stayed at BizApartment Gardet (30m away) for a week while my in-laws stayed here, then my wife moved here for 3 days staying with her sister; but we found ourselves here much of the time as there are a lot of common areas which were convenient for meetings, and outdoor tables for alfresco picnics. Rooms are small but quiet,... More

Perfect & low budget stay. There's a kitchen to prepare your own meals and breakfast if you don't want to spend 80SEK for breakfast. Bus 1 will take you to Gardet T-station and its very easy and quick to go anywhere centrally. The room was clean & comfortable however wifi was not that stable in our room and there is... More

We were on a short budget trip to Stockholm, therefore we needed a very cheap hotel just to sleep somewhere. The conditions were to have a private bathroom and window, then tried to pick the cheapest possible, so I had my concerns if the room was going to be anything but ok... then came the surprise. We found the hotel... More

This youth hostel is a shortish bus or tube ride from the centre of Stockholm, but both are so easy to use it really isn't an issue. The plus points of being just outside the centre include peace and quiet at night. I can imagine a hostel in the very centre might be quite noisy. The area is very clean... More

We booked this hostel because it was reasonably close to the harbour arriving with the ferry from Finland. Our room was a nice suprise! It was big and modern with two beds, a sofabed and private bathroom with shower. We also had the hostel breakfast both mornings and it was plentiful and fresh. Room for improvements: * The showerheads were... More
