Score from 2401 reviews Very good
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.
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
Although you bring your bed linen and you don't want it but in finally, hostel want you to rent it and you must pay 110 SEK. It'sfair
Very unfriendly staff! Noise all night long..
no reception even though there would be someone in the hostel untill 18.00 Sheets had to be payed for unexpectedly and cost the price of new sheets. No cover on the bed in one case. Dirty shower, showerhead fell apart during shower.
Located very centrally. Nice breakfast for good price. Nice and clean kitchen.
System with codes, no possibility to enter before 9 am (we arrived at 6:30). No information at the street entrance. (only phone number)
Not much unfortunately. We were wrong age group for this hostel
We didn't sleep on our first (and only) night as we had a choice of listening to yahooing till the early hours with the windows open or suffocating with little fresh air with them closed. The kitchen was also windowless and very claustrophobic.
Had a great stay. Easy to find, good service, personal keys to your room, rooms and bathrooms are clean.
the signal of wifi is weak. The kitchen is quite small when all the guests eat at the same time.
Room is small but tidy, the hostel keeper is very nice and helpful for our trip.
Place location is good, but no lift and we have to carry heavy luggage to 2nd floor. Due to hot summer and no air-con in the room, we have to open the window, but the main street is with a lot of bars and restaurants, too noisy to sleep at night. Wifi could not be connect although we have the password.
Location was great! Staff was very helpful. It was very safe and secure.
The kitchen lacked supplies and was very small and was crowded at time.
A quick summary of my experience for this hostel; 1. Its walkable from City Railway Station and Metro Station! 2. Good security system! 3. Clean and tidy bed, room and bathroom!
This hostel have rooms on first floor but then it does not have any elevator which could be used to carry luggage to first floor.
great location in the heart of gamla stan. walking distance from all the important sites
Centrally located. Easy to find and get to metro staff helpful clean and quiet.
Could have better pillows but the ones there were adequate.
