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.

Hostel is in the heart of Gamla Stan what it is and the only advantage . The rooms are small and full of dust . Hostel is in the basement which automatically leads to no light at all in the rooms . There is one female toilet and another joint . On Easter Sunday we realized that

The location in Gamla Stan is great to instantly get out and explore. Not too far of a walk from Centralen or Gamla Stan tbana stops. The staff are friendly. I used the kitchen once, which was very easy, other guests were very friendly. I did not find the rooms too cramped,

The hostel has a good location in the Old Town, so it is very convenient for the Gamla Stan and central parts of Stockholm. The best part was handing back the key and leaving. That is the end of the good. The hostel is badly run. The staff are only there a few hours each day,

"Ask about the type of room. The room for two can be a bed for two behind the partician and with your own key, no the "real room"."
"Avoid room 13 until its door is fixed!"
"Rooms have no daylight and heat"
"choose another hostel. There are FAR better hostels than this one in Stockholm, hostels with much better showers and toilets, and also hostels with staff there most of the day. I would not recommend this hostel at all."
"Keep in mind that the hostel is underground, so no windows in the rooms. If you can't cope without natural light, you might want to reconsider staying here."
