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).

I'm not just writing this review for a chance to win the free smart phone, haha. This staff at this hostel cannot be beat. I'd they say make it as good as it is. They are friendly and patient and are willing to talk to you for as long as you need. It's a very popular place in a great... More

Hostel is in the heart of Gamla Stan what it is and the only advantage . The rooms are small and full of dust . Hostel is in the basement which automatically leads to no light at all in the rooms . There is one female toilet and another joint . On Easter Sunday we realized that somebody stole ouhr... More

If you don't already know, Stockholm is an expensive city. We came across this hostel pretty last minute and where attracted by its easy to reach location. It's a 20 minute walk to the central station, 15 minute walk to the city centre and surrounded by amazing cool bars and restaurants! The staff are friendly and so helpful! Kitchen was... More

The location in Gamla Stan is great to instantly get out and explore. Not too far of a walk from Centralen or Gamla Stan tbana stops. The staff are friendly. I used the kitchen once, which was very easy, other guests were very friendly. I did not find the rooms too cramped, however the shower heads were small. Enjoyed my... More

The hostel has a good location in the Old Town, so it is very convenient for the Gamla Stan and central parts of Stockholm. The best part was handing back the key and leaving. That is the end of the good. The hostel is badly run. The staff are only there a few hours each day, so there is little... More

Hostel's rooms are very small but cute. Personnels are very kind. Also, Old town hostel is in the great location. In the hostel you can feel that you are cooking like in your home kitchen. However when I went there, my room was dusty but when I told the receptionist, she solved my problem immediately and in the evening my... More

Originally booked for one night when I couldn't stay in the hostel I wanted, but ended up staying for a week! This is one of those genuine hostels - the type without all the unnecessary rubbish that a lot of hostels falsely try to sell to you as 'value'. Good, genuine service from the hostel staff and nothing is over... More

We stayed there 1 night. Its main advantage is its great location: at the heart of the old town island of Gamla Stan, it is situated at a walking distance from the train station (10mins) and the city centre (Gustav Adolf Torg, etc.) (3mins). The staff was very nice and the rooms did the job: they were clean, the only... More

We did a backpacking trip all around Europe, and this hostel was the most expensive. (Although it is considered cheap in Sweden). The hostel is underground so the rooms do not have windows. In the morning it was hard to tell what time it was since there was never light coming into the rooms. Also, the bathrooms smelled extremely bad.... More
