Property Information:

STF/IYHF Best Hostel Old Town is Stockholm's most centrally situated hostel. Everything that the city has to offer in the form of attractions and entertainment is within walking distance.

Outside the entrance at Stortoget, there are several restaurants and cafes to choose from and most offering outdoor seating. The Royal Palace, Nobel Museum and Storkyrkan (Stockholm Cathedral) are our closest neighbors. Boats to Djurgården with Grona Lund amusement park and Skansen zoo are just a few minutes away by foot.

STF/IYHF Best Hostel Old Town is the perfect starting point for any family ' small or large ' that is ready to explore the city.

During the day, the main square of Old Town, known as Stortorget, is bursting with life with crowds of visitors from all over the world. Late in the evening and throughout the night, the area is peacefully calm and quiet, largely due to lack of vehicle traffic and the fact that the restaurants of Stortorget are closed by midnight at the latest.

We are proud to offer freshly renovated facilities in a building that dates back to the 1600s.

Our hostel can accommodate 40 guests, with rooms that have 2, 3, 4 or 6 beds and span two floors. The rooms are bright and fresh with large windows. All beds have proper spring mattresses and overlay mattresses. Showers and WCs are found on each floor. We have both wireless and network socket with 24 Mbit in every room and guest computers in common areas. Downstairs, there is a multi-purpose room containing computers with Internet connection (installed September 2007) and a fully fitted guest kitchen. Air conditioning and TV will be installed in most rooms during autumn 2007.

When you stay here you can bring your own bed linen and towels but you can also rent from us :
Bed linen 50SEK/person
Towels 15SEK/person
We do not allow sleeping bags or that you sleep without bed linen.

Our primary goals are to live up to our name and to provide the highest quality at a reasonable price.

    The major problem was the shower situation, since 2 showers weren't working and the other 3 showers were occupied for quite a long time and kind of dirty. There is some improvement possible, like separated showers and WCs. The kitchen is very small and there is no cooking possibility. Coffee is free, that's really awesome!
