    Great location, right in the middle of everything. Staff were only there in the morning but you were left with everything you needed. Very clean and excellent price for location!

    A small hostel in the heart of the Stockholm Old Town. Located near some bars and restaurants, so there might be some noise during the night. Has the most comfortable and soft beds I have ever slept in in a hostel, and there's good bedding available for a tiny sum of money. No lockers in the rooms, lamps by every bed.

    We were very disappointed to arrive at archipelago hostel and be placed in a 6 bed room despite booking a 4 bed room. When this was addressed with hostel staff, they didn't move our rooms or even give a discount we I requested one. After talking with other guests, we found out that this is a common problem. I felt taken advantages of and would not recommend this place. Also, they did not allow luggage storage before or after the check in time, very unusual and poor form for a hostel.
