Amazing location in Gamla Stan and a 2 minute walk to the metro station. Facilities were very clean and comfortable. We were not happy, as the owner told us we would not have any cooking facilities on our last night and we had already purchased groceries to make a meal.

3 nights in the hostel. The bed was very comfortable. Hostel well located in Stockholm. The room was very small and get dirty quickly by winter time. Why not installing carpets to clean our shows? On the contrary to other reviews, the staff was kind and helpful. Finally, concerning facilities : Don't expect too much. The kitchen is VERY small... More

Excellent location, really comfortable. Shared bathrooms and kitchen were very clean. I stayed 2 nights and had a very good experience, no noise at all even though my room was just besides the kitchen and with two huge windows to the street.

The hostel is in a very good location. It is not so close to the Central Station, but it is in a street of the Old Town. There are many coffee shops and restaurants near it. There is good wifi, it is clean. The shower and bathroom are mixed and shared, the box shower is small. It is not possible... More

Nice room and beds. The only problem is when you book your beds in 6bedsroom for example with your friends maybe some of them can sleep in an other room. They don't inform you for that problem. They guy in the door-bell was very very rude, impolite. otherwise it's a nice place to stay for a few days. The girl... More

WE stayed in a 3 bedroom private on the 3rd floor. The view was amazing center of Old Town. We had to pay fro a duvet and sheet even though we had our own. This was outrageous. The staff is friendly, not much interaction though. We were right on the strip, but people were up all night screaming out front... More

Hostel really has great locations, rooms are big enough, beds also and they are very clean. You do feel a bit like a teenager when they come and check if you are really using your sheets and when they repeat for several times that you can not bring strangers in your room, but other than that I really enjoyed my...

A fresh, clean and centrally located hostel in the old town. The rooms wich are intended for more lodgers takes you back to the military duty. However, the duvets and pillows are clean as if they were new, and if you have'nt a bed set you are able to here one fresh for only 65 SEK. The Shower facilities are... More

We've stayed in twobed room. It was clean-ish and sufficient for recovering from sightseeing. If man does not mind that there is no lift, the bathroom is shared, the room is basic and not very well soundproof THEN it is a good choice. PS: Staff was friendly and wifi worked well if anyone is interested :-)

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.
