The location and the cleanliness
The showers (you have to press a buttom will you are in the shower to get the water), the toilettes and the stairs to access to the hostel (dangerous, very old)
Location is great.
Easy - they provided early check in, that was great!
They charge separately for bed sheets and towels - additional 130sek (Euro 13) - I think I didnt notice this hidden charge before booking.
Wifi is good. Room is clean.
The shower need to keep pressing when you're taking a shower, it's inconvenient. Street noise.
Kind and considerate staff!
Showers: Towels and clothes can either be taken inside the shower, where they will get wet – or you will have to dress and undress outside with little to no privacy to then leave all your stuff unattended. Shower runs on a push-button system which requires the flow to be restarted every three seconds.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms, the toilets and the showers were very clean. The location of the hotel is perfect. The price is really affordable. The hostel itself is very quiet. You can get a good sleep.
There was nothing that bothered me during my stay.
It was hard to get hold of the codes to the doors and when I got to the hostel the codes were wrong. Quite anoying. It happend to other guests to. There´s no staff between 3-6 as you´re told! The showers is very small. Obviuosly you´re supposed to go there only dressed in your towel, since there is no place to hang your clothes. The hostel is a backpacker kind of place. Note that they charge fees on your Visa without telling you! Personalen talar dålig svenska.
Location is absolutely incredible. Rooms are facilities were great.
The kitchen is very, very limited. No pan, spatula or toaster.
clean great location
sheets are 'optional' but were automatically included into my bill (without using them)
- location - clean room - 65 kr. - bed linen and towel Good choice for stay. Definitely will stay here again.
Rooms and shower facilities very clean and staff friendly and helpful.
Communal kitchen is a bonus.
Really thin walls mean you hear the people next door word for word.
Very good hostel in the middle of Stockholm's Old Town. Room where really clean , with the Ikea beds . We have rented 3 person room , and got exactly what we wanted . Room was a small but spacious enough for 3 persons to fit in with out a problem. Wifi was quite good we even watched some video streaming without any problems. Showers are shared but very good :) . Arriving late our key was in the envelope at the door to our room, just like they told us in the mail. If you need to spend weekend in Stockholm and want to set camp in the Old Town i recommend this hostel .
Clean and comfortable, a lot of light and great condition of facilities, furniture etc. great location and nice staff, very good price (but be prepared to pay additionally for sheets and towels). Highly recommended.
Reception is available short time, we arrive 6 p.m. and no one was there as well no one picked up phone long time, But finally we got in and then it was just perfect.
the receptionist was very kind, the position was great and cleanliness as well.
There isn't the lift, the kitchen doesn't have proper burners, the beds are not really comfortable.
No 24 hour reception. Having to call for the code upon arrival and being given the wrong one. Booking a single room and getting a room with bunkbeds. Filthy showers and toilets. No wifi. Having to pay extra for bedding.
Extremely clean, very comfortable beds not too many guests, helpful staff, fairly quiet, excellent location.
Would be better if there was a secure place to store luggage.
it is an unforgetable trip, the location is very good and very convenient to all attractions, and ,, the staff is friendly and helpful.I also like the old building where the hotel lies.
It is better to include the linin.otherwise it is perfect hotel!
Beds were comfortable, wifi mostly dependable (though it did go out the night before our presentation). Location is super convenient.
They changed the access codes and didn't inform current guests. If we hadn't come back early from our conference we would have been stuck outside and our bags inside before a 7 am flight-- bad stuff. Guy at reception was minimally helpful but not overly so.
Centrally located, Gamla Stan might be one of the most attractive and interesting districts in Stockholm; you can walk from/to Cityterminalen. I felt safe, bathroom had been renewed recently. New lockers are about to be installed. Kind of spacious.
Booked it because lockers were provided: Unfortunately they haven't been installed and every room yet so better check in advance if this is a must have feature. 3 showers and 3 toilets per level could be crowded in rush hour; sink for washing/brushing your teeth outside the main bathroom, right close to other rooms so noise could be a prob. In a room facing the street, noise could be annoying at night as there are lots of pubs, closing the windows will block noise but also are flow so it gets sticky. Mattress was saggy (though clean), nothing for belly sleepers. Sockets might be rare in the room.
Hostel is in a great location and easy to find. The bed is also very comfortable.
*Extra for sheets and towel (a restaurant would not charge extra if you want to use a knife and fork to eat)! *Every conversation can be heard, noise *The staff
There is definitely nothing to complain about! And we will come back for sure. The best hostel we have stayed in.
The location was the best that could be.
I did not like that you have to pay bad sheets separately.
Nice and helpful staff. Good security with keys for room doors and doble check code. In the heart of the old town in Gamla Stan.
Not spacious dormitory, poor quality of sleeping because it s in a central street, staff s not available until 9 am and after 6pm. Showers and toilet and sinks are like in a gym, have to push every 10 seconds to have hot water, shower is a stress more than a relax and cleaning moment. a bit squalid, no common room. lack of vibe
good location, friendly staff, clean rooms, kitchen with fridge
most of the time the internet doesn't work
