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

This hostel could easily be reviewed from excellent to poor depending on what you are looking for. The 'Excellent' is the location right in the middle of the old town Gamla Stan. The old town is stunning; everywhere you look ought to be a photo, I spent a while just sitting on the windowsill of my room staring at the... More

If you're into the medieval atmosphere of the old town of Stockholm, this is the perfect place to the price. As a new timer in Stockholm this just seems to be in the centre of all the great attractions. Close to the royal palace, the city hall and some of the best cosy cafes. The hostel is clean and quiet... More

I booked myself during the eleventh hour before my trip, and this place was a very nice place to stay, if you want to stay closer to most of the attractions. The price was very reasonable, the room was comfortable enough for a single traveler like me.

Stayed in this hostel for 2 nights having traveled over for a football game. The location in the old town of Gamla Stan is excellent.

Nicely-priced hostel, absolutely great location. A bit hard to spot, but two metal stores in immediate proximity (Sound Pollution being one of them), nice quiet rooms, clean. No disturbance by party folk.
