It is in 100% great place. You can find anyplace near from this hostel. A good place to sleep for good price. My staying was perfect.

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. Arrived at night and had the code for front door and door to apartments on first floor: On entry there was an envelope with the key to our room awaiting as promised: Room is basic... More

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.

I stayed here one night with a friend. It's location is excellent and it is decent value for money. What is very annoying is that my entire left arm, ribs and hand is covered in bites from the bed bugs. Room 11 out of interest. You have to pay more for sheets which is a bit of an insult too

Unfortunately, all over Sweden suffered a huge boom of this so it's not just in Stockholm. We do our best and if there is a problem we will contact immediately techniques from Anticimex as they come and sanitizes the room. But this is not depending on the hostel's cleaning, without travellers have it with him to the hostel / hotel... More

Stayed in a single private room which was comfortable with every facility that you might need. The staff were very helpful, although not having a 24 hour reception was a bit of a problem. Bathrooms have obviously been recently renovated and found them average for a hostel. Amazing location and lots of things to see and do in the immediate... More

I and my boyfriend stayed in this hostel for 2 nights and it was reasonable. I still think it was a bit expensive for what it is. You have to pay extra for the bed sheets and towels. Our private bedroom was without bathroom so we had to use the bathroom outside. The water was hot, but the pressure was... More

The hostel is on the corner above an Irish bar where people stay noisy and drunk late into the morning. It is impossible to sleep, and even when there is not (awful) live music, people are shouting on the street at all hours. The rooms are too hot and stuffy to be liveable with the windows closed (and the sound... More

We are very sad to hear that We have been responsive to what our guests have said so we have decided to deploy noise glass in all windows at the hostel. They will begin March 4, 2013 and hoping for a return visit from you More
