Property Description

We're at the most central place in Stockholm!

Dockside Hostel Old Town is located in Old Town at the waterfront. You can't find a better location in the centre of Stockholm. It's only a short walk to all places of interest. The subway in Gamla Stan is just 300-400 meters away. From there you can reach Central Station and all airport coaches in just a few minutes.

The small squares and alleys of Old Town offers you a wide range of cafés, pubs and restaurants. There you can enjoy breakfast , lunch or dinner to decent prices. In addition it's only a stone's throw to the heights of the bohemian section of the city called Södermalm. And two stones' throw to the hectic nightlife at Stureplan.

We have a capacity of 45 beds and offer accommodation suitable for all age groups in a relaxed and international atmosphere. There are showers and toilets in the corridor. We also have a nice guest kitchen where you can make your own breakfast or light meals. There's free Wi-Fi plus free Internet access in the lobby.

    The location of this hostel is perfect! You're right next to Gamla Stan and the ferry to Djurgården (which you'll want to get if going to the ABBA Museum, Gröna Lund or Skansen) is just across the road! We had a private twin room for 3 nights and the price was really reasonable, as we paid about £77 each for the length of the trip. The hostel provides tea, coffee and pasta and is a 20 minute walk from a Lidl which really helps you save money if you dont want to pay Stockholm food prices!

    You pay for the location but it's so worth it! Very kind and accommodating staff. Very clean showers and rooms. Would suggest to anyone looking for a place to explore the city for a weekend.

    The hostel itself and the staff were very good, the only issue I had was with the lack of bed assignment. I went back into my room on my second night and the bed that I had used the night before was occupied and the occupant was using the sheets and pillow case that I had paid to use the night before. If there had been a place where I could get replacement sheets it wouldn't have been too bad, but instead I borrowed a sheet from a friend who was also staying in the hostel, but had nothing else.

    I had a terrible experience. My bed had bugs and when I informed the reception, they just didn't care to take the mattress away and were very rude. Also, the doors keep banging. Just put a mechanism, so they can close smoothly.

    👍🏼 kitchen facilities, location 👎🏼 small private bedroom which had a light on the fritz (I think I got the same room as previous reviewer ahah), I checked in at 9.02am when staffed hours start from 9am - they must've been peeved off cause they didn't say a word to me for 5 minutes while I was standing there - absolutely disgusting, no real hangout, others said showers downstairs didn't use cause of inconvenience, no vibe, no laundry, no breakf Would look elsewhere with a better hostel vibe.

    The worse hostel you can go to in Stockholm. The place is not clean at all, the dust was everywhere. The facilities are horrible. I have rented new sheets and they were stained, the personel is not professional at all. Very Chaotic, I couldn’t stay for 4 hours in it, With the same price, you can go to a much better places.
