Hotels and hostels in Stockholm are really pricey. This hostel is cheap. Cheap and awful. Single room is tiny, there's a place for bed and a suitcase. The room is very cold - I slept with my beanie and scarf on. Thin walls between rooms - crazy audibility. If your neighbours are quiet, it's ok, but if not - you'll... More

Hostel is centrally located, walking distance to everywhere. Beds were comfortable. Front desk staff was really helpful. Rooms were extremely small. If you are planning to travel alone, be prepared to have a restricted personal space. Shared bathroom was for both genders. Toilets and showers were in the same small area. And there is no lobby, no place to chill-out... More

The location is great! right in the heart of the old town ...easy to find, It is VERY simple. The beds were comfy, the bars can get a bit noisy..i suggest you just join them for a drink! The walls were thin though...you could hear the guy snoring in the next room. Again..just drink more and you'll pass out! The... More

Room was spotlessly clean and bed comfy. We arrived late and after check in and our key was waiting for us. Toilet and showers were more than fine as well as the shared kitchen with fridge pans etc. Despite being on a little shopping street with cafes etc we heard no noise at night or early morning. Location was perfect... More

+ The location is great, in the middle of Old Town. Very cheap, I got a bargain for 2 euros per night. Would not pay over 20 euros per night for this accommondation. Good wifi- connection. There are lockers to store your stuff, but those are small, fit only small tablet and camera, no bags, and you need to bring... More

This hostel is well located in the old town right next to subway without noise! This hostel is clean and Natalia, the front desk staff were extremely helpful and lovely.

I had a terrible experience, not with hostel, but with Ebooking.com! I booked a room in their website, but for an unknown reason they couldn't validate my credit card. So I got a mail saying that I still have the booking but I have to go there before 6pm! I arrived there at 4 and there was no one in... More

Located in the heart of the Old Town. It is around 20 minutes from city terminalen and around 45 minutes walk to the Vasa museum and the djurgarden area. It is one of the most quiet hostels I've ever been to, perhaps because there was no common area and the kitchen was well hidden on the second floor, everyone just... More

The central location in the old town is excellent. The hostel is clean and well kept. Room was overcrowded though and little comfort was offered. Facilities were very basic, there was no receptionist, no common room, and storage space insufficient. May be ok for a group occupying one room, but a solo would find little privacy among strangers.

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.
