The good things: Good location in old town, staff really nice and communicative. Bad things: No common spaces for meeting people, only a very small kitchen whiout a oven. Rooms are OK but with funny smell. There is no breakfeast and nothing to eat if you are hungry. I stayed six nights and I meet noone there to hang, to... More

This place is perfectly situated for exploring Stockholm. But the short hours for reception are not accommodating. The staff was not helpful in providing recommendations around the area. The small kitchen area was stuffy and hot, and it is the only common area. When you check in, you have to prepare your own bed. Our room was quite cramped, it... More

I've been here with my girlfriend for a few days. The location is simply wonderful. We had a nice private room that definitely exceeded our expectations. The room was clean and the window was to the calm street. We really enjoyed the stay here and I would definitely come back if I were in Stockholm again.

I am extremely disappointed with the service of this hostel. After being locked out of my room for almost half the day because the battery died to my room lock, I was still forced to pay for my entire stay and private room or they would keep all of my stuff. The battery had died, deactivating my key and I... More

I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone who is looking for somewhere nice, clean and central. It had a very warm, lovely feel to it, with a varied age group of people staying. The staff is very nice and help full. Some showers were better than others, and it was a long wait to have a shower in the... More

I've got everything I needed for a quitegood price. The location of hostel is really good - just in a middle of the Old City. I could get anywhere in the center just walking. That was cool. The rooms are not luxury but the only thing I nededisjust some restbefore next impressive day.

It's a really good place to spend there sevral nights. The location is so convenient that you can get everywhere in the city centre on foot. Bathroom and toilet are pretty clear. For those who likes cooking there is a small kitchen at your service. Also you can find there a nice coffe in the morning.

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
