All basic things one needs are available. The common area is wonderfully designed, the location is amazing - with a bit of luck you have the view over Gamla Stan. Although pillows could be bigger and more comfy, we enjoyed our stay.

I had some reservations about staying in Stockholm, the biggest being the cost of eating out on a budget. This hostel, however, comes with a proper kitchen that has all the basics, meaning I could buy budget food from ICA and cook it there. It's close to the old town and the

This is one of the top choices for Stockholm. The location of the hostel is great, everything is within walking distance, it offers a great view of the Royal palace and at Christmas the giant Christmas tree. The rooms in the main building are comfortable, there is a cosy TV room

Very good location and very budget for the price. The most optimal price / quality ratio. The only awkward moment is that you can not immediately understand where to register. We stopped by quite late and it was a little difficult to find the place of registration - on Google

Beautiful night view just outside the hostel
There is a high speed train between the airport and central station. kids under 13?? are free so just buy an adult ticket. also cheaper to buy a round trip an your not locked in to a certain train. When you get off you can walk around the corner and get a cab. our cabbie had not heard of this hostel, but I had my instructions printed out. everyone speaks good English and taxi from station to hostel was $10 dollars

Normally every Hostel within Europe have a way to help you with your luggage. Some places charge but others don’t charge anything.

The ship is well anchored. Moreover it is anchored almost on the bank of the water body. Waves keep rocking on it all the time. Still, you could hardly feel the ship moving.

We took a cab from the train station, but it looked like there was parking available. On a map it looked like it was a hike from the train station, but we could have easily walked it. Please note that the cafe stops starving food earlier than the bar opens. If you are arriving late, grab some food along the way. We ended up having cookies for dinner which thrilled my son! Cheers!!
