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.

    Close to everywhere in Stockholm. We really enjoyed the convenience of staying close to the metro station and dock. Room was cozy and comfortable. Kitchen was also well equipped and relatively clean.

    Perfect location, and room was as expected. Perhaps a little pricey for the basicness of the room, but not compared to Stockholm prices overall so not really an issue!

    Solid value in an expensive city. My private room was clean, tiny, and adequate. Shower was hot but functionally challenging, because there was no place to put clothes without getting them wet, unless you strip in the public corridor to leave them there. Other than that little challenge, everything was well thought out and worked fine. I recommend this place for those on a tight budget. Location is fantastic!

    The hostel itself was okay, great location close to Gamla Stan metro. It's only staffed 9-11 and 15-18. Our room only had one old, seemingly unsafe electrical socket, with a three-socket extender, which had to serve both bed lamps and our devices. The room being in the basement, it only had windows about two meters up, which we couldn't open, so the air got really stale. The kitchen was tiny but usable, though we only used the fridge. No atmosphere. No locked bag storage.

    The hostel was in the Gamla Stan but it was quite far from the central station. The reception hours were very limited (3-6 pm) and the toilets and showers were on separate floors. Internet does not work in rooms and to get online, you have to go to the reception. Walls are rather thin and rooms are very small. Still, not too bad of a place to rest your head for one night if you’re on a budget.

    Great location but can’t make up for lack of facilities and atmosphere...possibly the worst hostel I have ever stayed in Europe or The US.
