Reviewed June 23, 2013

We stayed with 2 teenage daughters in the family room, which was a bit cramped as you would expect, but we spent the days out sightseeing so it didn't matter. Kitchen facilities are adequate except for the lack of a toaster (apparently it sets off the smoke alarm). Unisex WC and showers seems common place in Sweden these days but made for some rather smelly/untidy experiences. The hostel uses a code to allow access through the front door. Unfortunately the reception forgot to let us know that the code changes every day and hence I got locked out when I went for a morning run.... the 7/11 around the corner seemed used to that problem and let me borrow a phone. Although I had paid for the bed linen up front, I was charged again on arrival. Once I noticed the double charge it was refunded immediately but I would have expected their records to show that I'd already paid. Had we arrived after hours this would have been a problem. The TV didn't work and the reception offered to have someone look into it the following Thursday... This is a place where you stay for the location which is perfect, walking distance from the central station and with a bus stop literally on the door step. There are plenty of restaurants, a liquor store and several cafes and food shops around the corner and beautiful Malarstrand within easy walking distance.

Room Tip: I didn't see any other rooms, but the family room has two single beds and a bunk bed. It was OK...

One of the hostel I enjoyed the less.
I stayed 7 nights so I think I didn't jump too fast to conclusions.

There are too many rooms for the actual space available. And too few showers.
You have to pay your bedlinens (some 8 euros)! And no sleepingbags allowed.
The cleanness was so-so. Poor kitchen but 2 big fridges, useful.
Keep in mind that this hostel is in a basement! No windows! But who never dreamt about sleeping, taking a shower and cooking in rooms without windows?
I don't know about the age-policy in the establishment, but there was a weird 60-year old party man next to me and felt really uncomfortable.
The staff is quite unpleasant and leaves early, so don't expect to sleep well, it's noisy every night. Not to mention the poor quality of the beds/mattresses...
Very old furniture everywhere and bedbugs in the rooms.

Also, 12 beds-room is just not human! In some 20 square meters.... I still don't understand

Only good things : lockers in the rooms, good location (though in the summer the nearby metro station is closed...), free wifi (but only in the common room, where there is one couch for the whole hostel, yay)

I chose this hostel for the price (cheaper hostel in stockholm), but if I had to do it again, I would definitely add 2 or 3 euros per night and go to another hostel.

Stayed for 2 nights at a 6-beds mixed room. I'm not really used to stay at hostels, so I was a bit worried about this experience. But it turned to be very nice! I arrived at around 23:00, and was given a code to enter the hostel. Akey, sheets and a towel were waiting for me, with a greeting note and room and bed numbers, so I found my place very fast. There are lockers inside the rooms for the use of the guests, so I didn't have to bring a padlock. The first night (thursday to friday) there was only one person with me in the room, so it was very quiet and I got a good rest. The second night wasn't so peaceful, since it was a weekend night, and the room was almost full - but I believe that expecting everybody to be conscious towards the others is too much in a hostel :)
I must say a good word about the sanitary facilities of Lodge 32 - fairly clean, the shower cells not only have curtains, but also doors that can be locked, which gave me a greater sense of privacy.
The staff was very kind and helpful, I had a very nice tea in the morning - on the house! And, of course - Location, Location, Location! It is beautifully situated in the center of Stockholm, in the prestigious area of Kungsholmen - very short walk from Centralen. The longest walk is actually along Hantverkargatan itself. I walked everywhere I needed to by foot, without even having to buy public transportation tickets (that is - to the main tourists attractions in the city).
Overall - really recommended, if you don't mind to share your room with other people, and want a cheap option in the best location!

Room Tip: It is best to come off season and not on weekend - then the chances are good to get a nearly empty r...
