“Very reasonable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

The hostel is in a brilliant location, right in the centre of Stockholm. The rooms are clean and alright, though some of them don't have windows, which is a bit dismal. The beds are comfortable, although very close together. There is a nice communal area which is fun and friendly, although we did get a security guy come and tell us to be quiet when we were talking at night, which was a bit unfair seeing as we weren't being very loud. Its more of a chilled out hostel rather than a lively one, but there is a good atmosphere even so. The toilets and shower facilities are excellent. There are also cooking facilities, free coffee (it's not very good though) and a TV in the communal area, and some computers with internet available. The staff speak perfect English. A great hostel to stay at if you're travelling in a group of friends, or if you'll be spending most of your time out and about and just need a place to crash.

I chose this hostel for its price and location: I have to admit it is really convenient located, only 10 min walking from Central station and just few meters from main shopping area, you can really easly walk around without taking a bus (but really need to be prepared to walk alot!!!!). Location it's really the only positive aspect about this place!!!!I booked a bed in a 6-bed dormitory: didn't have great expectations, but really couldn't image how bad this could heve been!!!A room that would probably be fine to host 2 beds, had 6, with no windows, no smoke detector, no ventilation system and no place at all to move!!Beds were just at 30 cm one from eachother and the only thing they provide it's just a locker per person. There is no other place you can put your personal belongings!!Common areas were just a pair of stools in the main corridor and a completely messed up kitchen which was not a private area but just the necessary way to get to the rooms!You can purchase bed linen at 50 sek: I highly recommend you to bring your own linen because it was evident that those stuff were not well cleaned, you could just smell that!!
I would definately pay a little bit more to get at least the basic!!I only recommend this place if you travel with your friends and share the room with them and only for a short break: I think it's really hard to stand this place for more than 2 nights!!!!!!
I've been quite disappointed because I read many good reports about this place and Stockholm it's a city that can definately offer better place than a burial niche for 25 sek a night!!!!!

..but at what's probably the cheapest bed in central Stockholm, you can't really complain! Clean, comfy rooms, great location, and despite earlier reviews, very friendly & communal! Depends who's there at the time, I guess.
There's also free computers & wi-fi, cheap drinks & snacks available, linen & towels are a reasonable 50 & 20 SEK respectively, and mildly sexist posters to amuse or outrage.
Overall, lovely hostel in a lovely city!

If you're looking for a fun and sociable hostel then this probably isn't for you. It is cheap by Stockholm standards and in a good location but it's very plain. The room we stayed in for 6 people was very cramped and there was no window which made us feel very claustrophobic. It was absolutely boiling (meanwhile the weather outside was freezing) so we had to use a loud fan all night. There were large lockers accessible to all in the hostel room but you have to bring your own padlock. The beds were very creaky so everytime the person above you moved it was very disturbing. The kitchen was good- nice sitting area and there were 3 fridges all extremely packed. The showers and toilets were clean and there is free internet. The luggage room is also free. I did really like the hostel but there is no bar and everything is very plain so it's not really like a youth hostel which means we didn't really have the chance to talk to anyone like we did in other hostels. The staff were very helpful and spoke impeccable English (much like all Scandinavians!) Would recommend but probably wouldn't go back again myself.

It was really nice when I checked in because the receptionist told me I as upgraded in smaller dormitory! The room was comfortable. All the furniture was from Ikea and it was really a good bed where I slept very good! If I go back to Stockholm, I will stay in Interhostel for sure!

BUT...one thing I didn't liked was the smell in the room when I arrived! With another backpacker, we had to open the door to clean the air! It was impossible to open the window.

I'm Viliam from Slovakia and I visited this hostel in February 2011 with a friend of mine. It was my first and definitely not my last stay at this hostel. The staff there was very helpful with good language skills, our room was clean and warm, the beds were very comfortable, I slept really well :). Showers and toilets were clean with hot water 24/7. Unfortunately, we stayed in a room without windows but that is to be expected since it is written on their website. It has also a great location, only 10-minute walk from Gamla Stan and 10-minute walk from nearest supermarkets. And probably the most important thing since I'm a student - it's the cheapest hostel I've found in the centre of Stockholm for two people interested in little privacy (double private room). I'd definitely recommend this hostel to a friend of mine or to everybody who wishes to stay in Stockholm and hasn't got that much money to splash it out on other hostels. And they also have a Wi-Fi internet connection.
