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. 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
