The hostel is located in Gamla Stan, which is the old part of the city, one of the islands of Stockholm where there is the royal palace. The hostel overlooks the sea. We stayed in a double room. I have not seen the dorms . So this review is about the common areas and the double room. I do not... More

If you want to be in an ideal location to enjoy Old town Gamla Stan, the shopping district, and the nearby parks and skating, this is it... True this is a bare-bones hostel with teeny rooms with heat that may or may not work in the dead of winter (but they'll give you a heater cheerfully from the closet) but... More

I booked to stay here last week for two nights. I was initially off-put by the old condition of the private room I had booked ... but fine, okay. After having a nap on the bed I woke up to see a bug on the sheet beside me ... Okay ... When I looked at the pillow there was another... More

Spent my New Years' night + 2 more. Loved it. Can't be a better location, i walked everywhere from there ( and came back for a rest (& restroom stops (public restroom in Stockholm are 5-10SEK)), cup of tea/snack). Loved the huge spacious kitchen/pantry. Very efficient. I was lucky they put me in a 4-person room overlooking the lake/water and... More

I stayed with 3 generations from age 21 to 72. Four people in a private room with our own toilet/shower. Very clean and quiet, comfortable beds with bedding included. We did not have to pay for our towels, we offered and they said "not necessary". Great location near the water yet if you turn the corner we were in the... More

Near the old town, shopping and hotel to the city buses stop right in front, but a lot of stair treads and moving lines indicate bad, it's easy to get lost in the building. Bunk beds very noisy when you turn the body, The room is poor sound proof, they have a free cloakroom.

the hotel is really close to almost everything. So the best about this hostel is it's location on GamlaStan. I stayed in a single room it was cute and linen was included to the price. You should still care about having your own towel. The bath and toilets are shared. Free wifi is good. Rooms are clean. You can serve... More

We stay in this hostel together with our three kids, so we slept in 5-beds room. The room was clean and big enough, however it was located on the fifth floor, while the elevator can reach only third floor... so we had to pull all our baggage through steep and narrow steps. The location of the hostel is great: we... More

My friend and I were very satisfied with this hostel, having both stayed in a fair few before now. It is a clean and well maintained shelter in an excellent central location. It is about 15-20 minutes walk from the main transport station which links the airport by bus and train, along with loads of other destinations. We booked at... More

Stockholm is an expensive place. Particularly in the stunning old town. Well this place is in the old town, & it is affordable! We had an en-suite twin room for less than £80 for the night. It's a hostel. There is no getting away from that. You have to hire towels. Breakfast is serve yourself & limited to toast &... More
