+ Amazing location (Gamla stan, old town, 5 min from Sodermalm). Nice wallpaper in the toilet. - Only 2 toilets. Only 2 showers, located downstairs, not that clean. Holes in the floor (the one was just under the bed's leg). Poor Wi-Fi quality (when there's a lot of people online, it doesn't work).

We've had a nice stay at Dockside. The hostel is rather small and essential, but clean, with wifi, good security (although you can't lock your entire bag: just valuables, and you have to bring your own padlock!) and nice people around. The kitchen is very small and there are only two toilets, but this hasn't been a problem during our... More

Pros: amazing location. Cons: Not enough toilets. Dirty/leaking showers. No soap to wash hands in the toilet. Wi-Fi not working. No curtain over dorm room window. Kitchen facilities poor. Staff only available a few hours each day leaving new guests unable to gain access to their dorm. Staff not available on emergency phone line. Stockholm is a lovely place to... More

Overall, worst hostel I've ever stayed at! It was dirty, and only 2 toilets... staff is there only in a small window of time each day so there's no one around to help. Toilet paper ran out practically everyday and the lights in our room were broken. They were renovating the showers area so it made the place feel messy... More

I have never imagined in my life that there are so horrible places anywhere in the world -especially in a big capital like Stockolm . The place should be closed down immediately.Misleading and deceptive photos make people have a booking. How Swedish authorities ALLOW that ? Had booked a room for three- two months earlier and sent a deposit we... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Great place to stay although it's small. Receptionist was helpful straight away they gave me a map with places to go. I'd recommend to visit if you are on a budget. Showers are small as well but it's clean. Toilets clean as well.

The hostel was in a convenient and central location which was easy to find. When we arrived the wifi was working well however for the remainder off our stay it was down with no explanation why or apparent attempts to fix the problem. During our first nights stay one of our parties woke to find a stranger standing in the... More

It's like a prison because you unlock three doors with two pins which is very confusing. Service? Between 9and 11 and 13 and 18:00. At the rest of the time there is no one who could help. Showers are stinky and a cellar hole.

The hotel is one of cheapest yes, but holy god did they forget how to isolate and ventilate? The amount of noise generated around my room and in the hotel in general was crazy! I measured the dB level, around 40! No air circulation, woke up with a headache. Generally the place is dirty as well. I will not recommend... More

A last minute booking, paid approx £20 per night and would say it was good value. Dockside is in a great location, there a great view of the city/docks just a meter from outside the front door. There is also a co-op near by and it is in the Old Town which is beautiful and was my favourite place to... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
