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 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.

    We had a nice time at the Hostel. It is very central so we could walk everywhere we wanted to go (Ferries, busses, trains are very near as well). Our host was very friendly and the kitchen well equipped. Most of the rooms seem to be in the cellar and are therefor a little dark. Since we were outside in the city almost all day this was not a problem for us. I can recommend this hostel, if you are looking for a relaxed stay in Stockholm.

    Definitely worth staying in for the location on the beautiful Gamla Stan (although don’t expect a real dockside view). The gentleman in charge was really kind and gave us free coffee. Shame there are only staff around 9-11am and 3-6pm. Facilities are fairly basic, although the bed was super comfy. Generally, there was a very friendly atmosphere.

    Old, cold, dirty and breaking down. Hidden costs (linen) In desperate need of a deep cleaning and refurbishment. Included the kitchen. Handy having it, yet you can't use the oven (& microwave malfunctions). The amount of air filtering through the 19th century windows is insane. I was getting sick. They take poor care of the hostel, with stickers from its previous name. Doors get stuck. The manager tries to be accommodating, I do appreciate (put me in an empty room), yet the place is appalling.

    This was the worst hostel experience I can remember ever having. The person working there was super rude, untrained, uninformed and even made inappropriate comments. I felt very unsafe and unwelcome in this place. Specially being a woman. There were hidden fees, the facilities were awful, the guy said it was not possible for me to hang at the hostel after checking out and he was very rude about it. He tried to charge the money from my credit card before I had arrived at the hostel.
