    Quiet place in a perfect location for sightseeing. I spent 11 nights at Dockside for a very convenient price. Good facilities, kind manager and friendly travelers.

    The place is nice and comfortable. The location amazing. I seemed also cheap, but you need to pay almost 5 Euros for the bed sheets, and 5 euros more if you want a towel, which is a quite expensive.

    Room had an unappetizing odor of...grease? but the gentleman who ran the place was pleasant. The downstairs sink had hair clumping around the drain. Place felt old and poorly maintained, but the location is primo. Good price for Stockholm, mediocre bang for the buck.

    Extremely well located hostel (within 20min walk of pretty much everything), but its unfortunately quite dirty (dusty, almost no cleaning done, not well kept and stuff everywhere) barely decent for a day or two but wouldnt recommend it for a longer stay (especially for the rooms in the "basement")

    When I first got there the receptionists charged me more than he should but I did not want to argue cause there were a lot of people in the lobby. Hostelword it said that the price was 199 kr per night but I ended up paying almost 270kr.. There was no shower, or at least I could not find it on my floor and the bathrooms were dirty and there was no handtowels. Room was cold and I could not sleep. It was fine for one night but I would not go again.

    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.

    Had booking through hostelworld before 6PM and arrived at 7:10PM. Manager did not answer phone only after 3rd attempt and would not let me in as reception was closed. Had to find another hostel and lost deposit, manager not helpful and rude.
