The location was the highlight for me, especially given that the price is among the lower ones for Stockholm. I was also lucky enough to be the only guest of a 8 bed room, so I had the comfort of the room all to myself. Nice view of the Stortorget. Interesting reading materials in the room. All in all a...

Comfortable hostel at the best price in Stockholm. You can't get a double ensuite room at this price anywhere else. The buliding itself is historic, check out the wall paintings! If you think the ten minute walk to the nearest subway station is too much, try Best Hostel City.

I went with 3 friends to Stockholm and booked 4 rooms at this hostel. Room were fairly clean but the smell of the toilet in the room was quite bad. Moreover, the shower and the the toilet were together in a small room so whenever someone took a shower, the floor was wet. The location is quite good and there... More

We stayed at Best Hostel for 3 nights in September 2013. Unfortunately this was not much of a pleasant stay. The worst thing about this hostel was the beds - they are infested with bed bugs and we were both covered in bites. Apart from that, the wifi does not work in the rooms and is temperamental in the eating... More

This hostel I would recommend. The rooms were all clean, beds were comfortable. The staff were helpful when we arrived and the wifi worked well. The bathrooms were a little small but it's only a small hostel so it's to be expected. Was a bit on the expensive side but again was one of the cheapest options

Don't be late to check-in! I wish our room had been more clean. I wasn't that bad, but I saw some dust on the shelf next to my bed. There are plenty of plugs you can use with your electronic devices. WiFi is free but it's weak in upstairs. 10min from the Gamla Stan station, same with the supermarket nearby.... More

Probably my second favourite hostel that I stayed in over my three month backpacking holiday! Cool vibes and good rooms, plus the location was awesome. Old town was beautiful and I loved getting lost in the winding streets. Good value for money for Sweden's standards, probably won't get anything cheaper (especially last minute booking!)

It was mine third stay in Stickholm and 5 hostel in Sweden. For the price I paid for 4 people (1 adult, two teenagers , 1 child) and the central location I really did not expect much, so after checking into the room it was a nice surprise to find it light, very very clean and rather comfortable for a...
