No cooking facility. Key safe (for after reception closing) doesn't work properly...

Very happy with my stay here. The staff was fanastic and helped us find everything from a place for traditional Swedish food to microbreweries in Stockholm. The beds and rooms were nice as well. The showers were not the best/not very clean and the ventilation system in all of the showers appears to be broken. I would recommend bringing flip-flops to wear!

Excellent central location in Old Town. Taxis from C Rail Station will rip you off charging to US$100 (625 kr) for 1.5km ride and then old town is mainly vehicle free so you may not be much closer when dropped off. Taxis run a scam on new arrivals and will put you in the high costs cabs and give you the runaround. Always check taxi rates displayed on vehicle. Keep your own toilet paper in reserve. Crowded little kitchen but free coffee.

Nice hostel, no staff outside office hours, hard to reach by phone but emails answered promptly. Microwave only in kitchen made cooking evening meal more difficult

Really really good position. Next to the main square, opposite the Nobel museum. Stockholm was quite an expensive city which makes the cost even better. The kitchen was a little small but there was communal pasta to use which was fantastic. The wifi was great worked all over and was quite fast. The only major issue was a bell on the island which mark every quarter hour through the night. This made good sleep hard. But the position was so good it could make up for many failings.

This hostel was okay. Pretty good location in Old Town but you quickly realize how little there is to do in such a touristy area. The Gamla Stan metro stop is about a five minute walk. The cleanliness of the bathrooms was absolutely terrible. I won't say it was the worst shower I've ever had because when I was in Ghana once I had to use a bucket and a cup. The shower head was broken and the floor was absolutely disgusting. Other than that it was an okay place. I met some cool people here

If you just wanna sleep, this is a good hostel. But if you are looking for something more than just sleeping (like good atmosphere, activities, spending time in common spaces etc.) then this might not be the best choice there is. The big dorm was okay and my bed was comfortable. Toilets were clean. There was no common room, only very small and a bit messy kitchen.

The floor and the showers were dirty as well as the kitchen. The shower was broken and not water resistent. There was water everywhere. The reception should be open at 9 am but there was still nobody at 9:30.

Amazing location and really nice staff. You can also make things in the kitchen which is good if you want to save money. It would be great if there were lockers in the rooms.

-There was supposed to be someone in the reception between 12-17 daily, but they were never there. Just a number you could call, but then we got a busy signal. -Anyone could just walk in at at anytime before 17. -The kitchen was supposed to be fully equipped, but some of it does not work (dishwasher, oven), and it could use a paint job.

Great place in the very center of Stockholm's Gamla Stan (old town). Nice atmosphere, also kitchen was well equiped. I would book it again!! Single drawback: our room was supersmall!!

I thought the location of the hostel was amazing, right in the heart of Gamla Stan and in the middle of Stockholm. The staff were ok although it could benefit from having longer opening hours at reception. I was extremely happy because I had the 4 bed dorm to myself for 2 nights however I came away from the hostel having been attacked by bed bugs which is really disappointing. Clearly this hostel needs to work on cleanliness!
