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 :-)

First of all the location of this Hostel is excellent, right in the middle of the old town, with easy access to all the beautiful attractions of this fine city. For such an expensive destination, this hostel was fairly well priced but that's not saying much, as it was still very expensive for what we got. We booked a twin... More

Stockholm is very expensive - so it is nice to find someplace this cheap. If you rather want to spend your money on other things. The location is perfect. Just a few steps away from Gamla Stan underground station where you can easily reach almost anywhere. It is quite close to the Central Station. Maybe 10-15 minutes on foot. But... More

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
