Location is good, you're in a nice central-ish part of Stockholm. The service was a poor at times as they didn't seem to make much effort for us although was nice to show us luggage room when we arrived 3 mins late for check in. Room was decent size, beds okay and wifi was adequate. Toilet sufficed, didn't use shower.

Stayed here a week in Sept. in a top floor twin room. The hostel is a easy trip from the central station if you arrive by train via the metro and located in a nice neighborhood. The place was very quiet and we seemed to have the whole floor to ourselves during much or our stay. The hostel appears to... More

We initially booked for the other hostel (the 2kronor in vasastan) but when we arrived in the one in Gamla Stan by mistake the guy in the reception was nice and told us we could stay there as well. Location was great, in the centre of Stockholm, close to the metro but also a nice area to explore (Gamla Stan... More

Other than the fact our double room was the size of a thimble and the shower on the upper floor didn't work, the hostel wasn't bad. The WiFi was slow at times, and there's also very little interaction (for good or bad) with staff and other hostel-goers. The location is nice though.

I stayed at this hostel for a 5 days and overall it was a good hostel. There were 2 problems : WI-FI wasn't functional all the time (3 days from 5) , a single toilet and shower on the floor is too less and an extra payment for the bed sheets and towels. The room was clean and nice but... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the hostel at the beginning of July and it was very good. The room (2 beds) was clean, the kitchen very functional with plenty storage room, many showers but only one toilet per floor. Overrall it was a good experience and would come back!

I was surprised at how clean this place was! It was also very cool at night, which was a relief as hostel rooms, even those with windows, often get uncomfortably hot and make it hard to sleep. It's true that reception is only open for 5 or 6 hours a day, but it didn't pose any problem for our group.... More

To start with the crux of the problem - the hostel is only managed from 9am - 11am and 3pm - 5pm, this means guests are allowed to run riot without any constraints the rest of the time. A hostel should allow anyone in, but there needs to be regulations to control how they behave while there. My last night... More
