When I booked to stay here I couldn't work out what to expect. Would it be easy to find? Would it be clean? Would it be easy to sleep? The first (and last) warning sign came from the hostel itself. In the directions on the site I booked through they state not to rely on a sat nav as it... More

I stayed here with my group of Explorer Scouts and we all really liked this hostel. The staff are welcoming and friendly and you get to meet lots of new people as well. Just a 5 minute walk to the shops and train/underground station. It is located in a quiet area. Amazing views of the City Hall and the Ericson... More

The hostel is very cosy and gives a homely atmoshere. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the hostel is situated in a good part of town. To top it all off the facilities in the kitchen are very good and cooking there is no problem. The room was spacious and perfectly suited our needs as a group of... More

First of all this is not a bad hostel. The staff were fantastic and very friendly as well as informative. The location was not great though, right on the edge of the 'touristy' side of town and away from the major museums and the old town. Yes public transport is available but personally I prefer to be in the heart... More

Why did you book with us if you wanted to stay "in the heart of Stockholm"? And it all depends "where your heart is" doesn't it.... Ingrid More

This was my first experience in a hostel and it was pretty good! The shower handle kept turning off during my shower and the location wasn't as central as expected, but never too far of a walk. Staff was super nice, but the wifi only worked in the hallway.

Beeing in Stockholm, you would expect that a hostel with so reasonable prices would not be good but Crafoord Place surprised me in a very good way. Stuff was lovely, it was quiet & clean, and they were even changing the common hand towels every morning. It's also relatively close to the old town which gives it extra points since... More

My experience at this hostel was honestly really great. The people there are really really nice and helpful and the atmosphere is so cozy. Everything is also in good shape and the kitchen is well equipped. And it's all for a very good price.

I haven't found a hostel yet with management that cares about the guests more than what I have found at Crafoord. The hostel has a nice intimate family feel to it. A lot of hostels in Stockholm are on the first floor or underground, but Crafoord is situated on the 8th floor and it gives you a great view of... More

Which is useful especially in capital city. accommodation is backpacker style on the 8th floor which has many young people as well as family.

Staying in Vasastan

Neighborhood Profile
Vasastan
Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost looks too good to be true. It has the winning combination of a central location, tranquility, and beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s most sought-after place to live. If walking through this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s actually the film set of the famous Swedish children story Karlsson-on-the-Roof. No matter what season, Vasastan manages to impress in the sunshine, covered in snow and won’t even lose its charm when soaked in rain.
