At the last minute I was asked to go to Stockholm, one of the cheapest options was to stay at Gustav Af Klint Hostel. This is my first experience of staying in a hostel. It was acceptable, however in future I'd pay slightly more for a better quality hostel. Note that there are higher quality hostels in the areas. The... More

The rooms are small but hey, it's a botel (really a bostel). The boat does move a lot more than I expected. The smell of the cabin areas and the bathroom was terrible- like mold or throw up. The wifi is only in the common area but it barely works in there anyway. The rooms are a bit dirty but... More

The first thing that you smell when entering the boat is OIL. And of course also when going down to the cabin..the lady at the front desk said it would go away, but nothing..is this supposed to be normal?! The walls are thin and as the cabins are right underneath their restaurant, you obviously here when people walk around on... More

The boat is just oposit Gamla Stan, perfect location. Hostel is quiet. Bathroom always clean, cabins not a lot. The cabins are really small, but that is normal on a boat. It is the cheapest accomodation we found in the center.

arriving after check-in time : no problem, very nice welcoming. surprised by the very tiny cabin, i was delighted by the view i had of the old town, the Chapman, the bank of Ostermalm and Gruny park from the lounge. the location near Slussen T-ban was perfect to plan all my visits. 25€ for a bed is the cheapest i...

I've stayed once in the Botel.But this one is much bigger. With a lot of rooms, good shower, bar. The cabins are small.No place for the luggage & annoing payment for linen & key deposit. There is also no kitchen & drinking alkochol outside the bar is banned. But as I think it is the the best value/money hostel with... More

I have never been in a hotel for 50 euro per person per night and been offered towels with black stains, dirty sheets and a full dustbin! I was expecting cockroaches to come out the moment I turn off the light. The room was also smelly and the place quite noisy. The only nice things were the location and that... More

My family of two adults and two children stayed here for one night in July 2013. The only really good thing about it is the location. Cabins (rooms) were worn. Bed linen (that we paid extra for) was clean, but the mattress in at least one of the beds had become very thin in the middle, where everyone probably had... More

I'm not sure if "you get what you pay for" applies here, but I still think we deserved better heating, especially if temperatures outside reached -15 C. It was so cold in the room that ice formed INSIDE the window. This was a very basic hostel. The only thing I liked here was the location. It was just a few... More
