The hostel has a lot of history in it located in vasastan - very accessible to bus and subway stations including 24 hour store (ICA) and restaurants. The reception was very helpful and accommodating. I might say there is something about swedish locks - 2 guests that include me got trapped for a while -good thing someone was outside the... More

The hostel was quite easy to find, it's a small hostel which was spotlessly clean. The rooms were great and the showers were even better! The kitchen was the best i've seen. The only negatives is the front desk isn't 24 hours and there's only one toilet (except the disabled toilet) on each floor. Other than that i would definatley... More

The place is great! It has a great kitchen, everything is secured with modern key cards and it was super clean. Location was not the best for those who want to be at the Old Town (30 minutes walking), but it is very central still. Only downside is that the staff is only there for a few hours a day... More

Our stay was not as pleasant as we had hoped for, as we were given a room with no window. Nobody did notify in advance of this fact and we were basically given a room which should be a basement. The ventilation system in the room/basement was also so loud that it was very difficult to fall asleep. To be... More

Small but fully equipped place. Exceptional internet (15mbps download). Fully equipped kitchen and a very nice common area next to the kitchen downstairs. Rooms were well prepared but bed sheets were not included in the price though. Showers area is well prepared and on the 2 times I used it, there was hot water at all time. The reception was... More

A hostel situated really close to the city centre with helpful and friendly owners. Extremely clean with an amazing kitchen and sitting room. The rooms are really well decorated. Cheap for Stockholm :P. You need to have your own sheet and lockers or else you pay a small amount of money.

I cannot stress out more how wonderful this hostel was when I was visiting Sweden. It wasn't just affordable, it was clean and the location of this hostel was perfect since there are supermarkets and bars around the area. I've also met a couple of friends here as well, if anyone is traveling alone.

We had a twin room which was lovely and quaint, comfy beds, more than enough space. Like all Swedish hostels you have to rent bedding (65sek per person). Good facilities - kitchen was fully equipped and easy to cook your own meals. However, walls are very thin. You can also hear the floorboards creak whenever someone walks by your room... More

Great that you liked our rooms. Sometimes certain "noise" transports in an old build from the 18th century. For that purpose we have earplugs in the reception. Sorry to hear that you had to wait for reception staff. Normally our emergency phone number can help with all type of questions outside opening hours. More

This is a great hostel with proper kitchen and dining area they have showers downstairs, which I like because you're not making noise in room and steaming up the place! The kitchen is great all mod cons and the dining area is nice and cosy. Only draw back is the reception is only open certain hours but it's easy to... More

Staying in Vasastan

Neighborhood Profile
Vasastan
Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost looks too good to be true. It has the winning combination of a central location, tranquility, and beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s most sought-after place to live. If walking through this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s actually the film set of the famous Swedish children story Karlsson-on-the-Roof. No matter what season, Vasastan manages to impress in the sunshine, covered in snow and won’t even lose its charm when soaked in rain.
