It was overall a good experience. At start there was nobody around the reception, but I guess this is usual in Stockholm because the previous hostel I stayed had the same problem. But once inside I found an envelope with my name on it including the key of my room. Met some nice people here in the public area and... More

We stayed here for four night with my sister in a 6 bed dorm. The location is fantastic and really close to everything. We could walk everywhere. Reception is open only till 6pm so plan your arrival in advance. The kitchen is located in a different floor y it has no good ventilation but it's very well equipped. You can't... More

(+) The whole hostel was as clean as one's own home. The bed was very comfortable. The staff was not there but still helpful over the phone. Great location! (-) The passcode for the entrance and the doors upstairs were different than what I received with the confirmation e-mail, which caused a little bit of frustration in the beginning. The... More

If you want to stay in a place close to architecturally interesting buildings, with ample retail and restaurant opportunities just steps from where you're staying, this is the spot. The staff and other patrons displayed nothing remarkable, either positive or negative. The only two drawbacks are: 1. the paper-thin walls (so you can hear the conversations of your neighbors), and... More

Great location, in the heart of the old town! Walking distance from the main attractions in Stockholm. Next to the metro for those who prefer not walking☺ Clean, pleasant, great facilities. The place to meet travellers from around the world☺

Awful- words cant describe how I felt i booked this hostel to stay for 2 night by myself in a single room. It was the 1st time I was travelling by-myself. Figured I should stay at a hostel for the friendly atmosphere/ to meet people but still have the privacy of my own room. I had tried to get a... More

Central location, within walking distance of the main Bus Station where the Airport Bus drops you off. If you do not feel like walking, take the 53 bus two stops and then walk a few blocks to Stora Nygatan 38 and the Hostel. Gamla Stan is a wonderful Old Town favouring interesting buildings, special parks, wonderful one of a kind... More

Location is great.Rooms and shower facilities are clean. Sheets are 'optional' but were automatically included into my bill (without using them). Note that they charge fees on your Visa without telling you!

The location is great (as mentioned over and over), it's as central as it gets. We stayed in a two bed room and the size was quite sufficient (it's not a hotel!). Staff did what they were supposed to, but did not leave a lasting impression. There's no aircon, so when the weather is hot it becomes almost unbareable (this... More

This hostel is way too expensive for what it has to offer. I have stayed in many, many hostels during my travels all around the world, and I would put this hostel in the bottom of the list. The only thing good about the hostel is its central location. Other than that, it's very expensive for what you actually get.... More
