“Nice quiet place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

I stayed here 3 nights in a 4 bedded dorm as a single room. The room was basic and the bathroom and toilet down the corridor which I wasnt prepared for but the hostel turned out to be really nice. Quiet, not far from the metro, nice breakfast (although this cost extra). I had expected a room with a TV in the hotel part but seems I had booked in the hostel part. All good. Friendly staff. I would stay again. The place had a nice Swedish atmosphere.

Room Tip: If you dont want a dorm make sure you book in hotel and not hostel part

We stayed in this hostel for three nights with my the family in July.
Rooms small but very comfortable and clean.
The staff is friendly.
In front of the hostel there is a beautiful park with a playground for children.

Zinkensdamm is a nice hostel, set back from a main road in Sodermalm. We stayed in a 4-person private room, which despite some slightly dirty sheets was fine enough. Our room also had a window onto the courtyard, which is a nice place to meet people and have a snack... but also can be quite noisy until the wee hours of the morning.

The hostel's location is pretty good. It's about a 20 minute walk to Gamla Stan, which we found to be better than the approx. $7 USD for a 1-way ride on the subway. Zinkensdamm is about a 15 minute walk from most of the bars in Sodermalm, and 5 minutes from a subway stop.

All in all, recommended to the traveler on a budget that's happy to have a friendly, relatively clean stay.

This is a great hostel. I had a 4 bed dorm which was quite pricey for the 3 of us and very small but the hostel is well run, has great facilities outside your room and is in a wonderful location in a park. Loved the kitchen and lounge facilities and the staff, like most Swedes, were ultra friendly and helpful. I loved running in the park full of allotment gardens next door. The free internet is a great bonus.

I was there with my Sister. We stayed 4 nights. It's the best hostel I ever been to! The service is friendly and smiling. The rooms are cosy, clean and beds are just awesome (the most comfortable hostel bed, I've ever slept in!). The wi-fi worked very good (also in rooms). In the foyer were 2 public computers with free internet connection as well. The hostel is located ca. 10 minutes walk from the subway station.

The rooms are very very simple, but they are sufficient, Extremely friendly staff, excellent food, very good breakfast - healthy and good variety. A lovely little hotel, a refreshing change from all the big hotel chains.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotel Zinkensdamm is a 3-star Superior Hotel situated in the midst of the picturesque plantation plots by Tantolunden at Sodermalm. Despite the central location, the hotel is surrounded by several green areas which infuse a relaxing atmosphere. The decorations of the hotel rooms are inspired by the old south of Stockholm while still maintaining all the modern facilities. All rooms are provided with private shower and wc as well as a flat-screen TV with free cable channels. Zinkensdamm Hotel can offer a wide range of rooms, from a single room for the lone traveler to a family room to the traveler visiting Stockholm with kindred. The green areas in the area offer lovely jogging tracks and path ways in a cultural-historical environment. Feel free to upgrade to one of our superior rooms and get a mini-bar and tea/coffeemaker in the room. These types of rooms consist of either a double bed or two separate singlebeds. In the morning we set the table for our generous breakfast buffet with scrambled eggs, bacon, yoghurt with berries, soured milk, various types of juices, coffee/tea, freshly baked bread, fruits and a wide range of different cold cuts and spreads to put on the bread. The hotel is constantly being renovated, yet maintaining the special atmosphere of the genuine Sodermalm. ... more   less
