Hotell och Vandrarhem Zinkensdamm

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 20, 2014

A friend and I stayed at Hotell Zinkensdamm a few months ago. We were looking to stay somewhere inexpensive but not low quality and this hostel was great! We arrived before we were able to check-in but we stored our bags in a storage room while we explored Stockholm.

Our room was basic with beds and lockers which was perfect for us since we were mostly out and about.

It's located a little away from most of the tourist things we did but it's only a few blocks away from the subway system which was really convenient. After we had been in Stockholm a few days and were more comfortable navigating the city, we mostly just walked from our hostel to our destination. Depending on where you're going, the walk can be a little long but definitely manageable. Walking around was a great way to explore and get a feel for the city.

If I ever return to Stockholm, I'll try to stay at Hotell Zinkensdamm again!

I am 56 and decided that while in Stockholm I wished to save money on accomodation which is expensive. I went for a 4 bed male dorm - my first experience of such accomodation. I was very pleased at how it worked out. Bed was clean and comfortable, I had a locker for my bag which I felt was safe. Toilet and washing facilities which were clean were down the end of the corridor. The staff at the desk were most careful to check that the correct person was returning when you collected your key and were very courteous at all times. Rooms are small and you have difficulty avoiding conversation with fellow occupants but thereby gain useful travel tips. Breakfast at £9 was probably a bit expensive but was good nonetheless. The hostel is on the edge of a park and I would recommend a walk through the park and along the waters edge past the hospital and allotments on the south side of the island

Recommended hostel, worths the price as you consider that Stockholm is insanely expensive. The staff is really friendly and the rooms/toilets quite clean. The only bad thing is the non-included breakfast, but there is a nice kitchen which is perfect to cookyou own meal and meet some awesome travellers!

The location of this hostel is not bad: it takes 5 minutes to reach the subway station, about 40 minutes to get to Gamla Stan. The hostel is located in a very quiet area: just near a great park and not far from the sea and a small beach. We got a room on the underground floor at the end of the hall. It had 2 two-stage beds though we were two. It was not a problem, but the room itself was very small and because of such beds it was even much smaller. Our room had no private bathroom so we used a common one. In that for women all the showers have either a door or a curtain, but in that for men they have nothing. At the same time all the common facilities: toilets, showers, kitchen are cleaned often during the day. The kitchen on the underground is quite big (there are about 32 seats) and there is all the necessary stuff to do some cooking. All in all we are very satisfied with our stay in this hostel but I still think that the price is a bit high.

I've been in this hotel just 2 days because i had some problem bookin' other hotels, and it was the only one accepted me for these 2 nights. At the moment i didn't want to stay there because i thought it's more an hostel than an hotel, but...guys this place is awesome. The staff is very nice and everybody are kind and the room are clean. Maybe is a little far from the center, but is a beautiful walk. However i reccomend this place! thank you!

It’s little bit away from the city centre and nice quite place to stay. You have a nice park next to it which connects s to the river at the end. There are several super markets nearby which opens till late and the subway station is closer too. You don’t get breakfast free and it cost around £9. Staffs were friendly and a clean place to stay.

We have been there only for one night, but we loved it. It is really something in between a hostel and a hotel. The location is great, just facing the Tanto area, and is very quiet. The restaurant is OK (but with very little choice) and the rooms are spotless clean. The staff was friendly and helpful.
The metro is reasonably close even with laggage and there is a supermarket nearby.
We had a 4 people room with a private bathroom and it turned out to be on the expensive side once breakfast and bed sheets were added, but I suppose we could have done without the extras....

Hotel Zinkensdamm is a 3-star Superior Hotel situated in the midst of the picturesque plantation plots by Tantolunden at Sodermalm.

The decorations of the hotel rooms are inspired by the old south of Stockholm while still maintaining all the modern facilities. All rooms are provided with private shower and wc as well as a flat-screen TV with free cable channels. Zinkensdamm Hotel can offer a wide range of rooms, from a single room for the lone traveler to a family room to the traveler visiting Stockholm with kindred. The green areas in the area offer lovely jogging tracks and path ways in a cultural-historical environment. Feel free to upgrade to one of our superior rooms and get a mini-bar and tea/coffeemaker in the room. These types of rooms consist of either a double bed or two separate singlebeds. In the morning we set the table for our generous breakfast buffet with scrambled eggs, bacon, yoghurt with berries, soured milk, various types of juices, coffee/tea, freshly baked bread, fruits and a wide range of different cold cuts and spreads to put on the bread. The hotel is constantly being renovated, yet maintaining the special atmosphere of the genuine Sodermalm. ... more   less
