Friendly staff, great location, reasonably priced - we really enjoyed our stay! If I wanted to find one thing that was kind of an issue, it was that once somebody was in the shower, the whole bathroom was basically flooded due to questionable constructions of the separator wall and shower curtain. But that was really a non-factor, just in case there is something you want to improve.

Hostel Zinkensdamm is a very nice place. It's clean, and well located within Stockholm. The room was comfortable, if a bit dark and outdated. The breakfast is excellent, and very well priced. My only complaint would be that we were asked to pay to rent bedsheets. This makes some sense for backpackers, but not for those renting a private room with a bathroom.


Directions to the hostel could be clearer, especially the metro station. It should be HORNSTULL not Zinkensdamm. Exit Hornsgaten, cross street and go left to stairs BETWEEN 107 and 103.


Everything was great! They had towels, breakfast buffet, a laundry room, and a restaurant/bar. All at a cost of course.


Make sure you read the descriptions carefully, including the small letters at the bottom of the description - the price shown is only for IYHF members. I booked on this hostel because of I thought its cheap, but unfortunately I didn't read carefully and I was not an IYHF member. As I was staying for four nights, the cheaper option when I was checking in was to pay an extra 150 SEK to become a member. On the other hand, staffs are very helpful and friendly.


I think that the hostel is very beautiful, has fancy creative doors that look like harry poter movies. The staff are very nice. It seems to me that is one of the best options for an hostel in Stockholm.

More of a family hotel with dorm rooms really. There's no common room or kitchen, the atmosphere was all a bit stale. Don't want to be too harsh, as there was nothing particularly wrong with the place, but it certainly wasn't my type of hostel.
