+ The hostel is amazingly well located. It looks well preserved, with new paintings and a clean look. The room have no windows since it's an underground hostel, so it's dark and it's kept pretty clean. The beds are ok, nothing exceptional but not unconfortable as well. Friendly staff. Good WiFi. - The rooms are too cold, at least during... More

The location is perfect - right in the heart of the old town. I met many others young travelers You need to pay for a key for the lockers. The lockers are too small. There are no bathrooms inside the rooms - the bathrooms are common for the whole floor.

Good location, excellent breakfast.Friendly staff ready to help, speaking good English. Easy to find. The sleeping and bathing facilitiies could be better. Reasonable price for Stokholm, though could be less for economy rooms.

At first we where very enthusiastic about the hostel because we never before slept in a basement. When we arrived 2h earlyer our room was already ready for us which was great but when we entered the room, it was very small for four people. Bed linen are mandatory but if you don't have your own with you, you have... More

Overall our stay was fine. We enjoyed ourselves. Although the hostel really needs some urgent TLC - starting in the bedrooms finishing in the washrooms. We were three people in our four bed dorm but found it rather crowded as there isn't much space to put things. Everyday we were hoping that we didn't get another person in our room... More

(+) Excellent location, in the middle of Old Town, as the name suggests. The beds are clean and comfortable, and there is a nice seating area next to the kitchen. (-) The kitchen is a little too small. The toilets were for the most part clean, but not fresh. The door knob of one of the big men's toilets was... More

This hostel is at perfect location. And that is the only positive. It is underground and the room was too small for us. We have booked 4 persons room and we could not move when we were inside. No place for our big luggages and that was making our movement in the room even worse. The room did not have... More

It's a nice dorm hostel with good kitchen facilities. The beds are not great and smelled a bit. But we slept good for a few nights. The door passes are blocked really fast because of the magnet. The location is right in the middle of the old city center and near a supermarkt. We had a good time!

This underground hostel had very small, cramped rooms but a really cool atmosphere. The staff were so lovely and patient. The kitchen was good and the wifi worked in the rooms. The showers smelt awful, but this was only a minor fault. Perfect location - situated right in the middle of Gamla Stan (arguably the prettiest part of Stockholm).

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
