Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.

It is a hostel that you will be amazed once you get there. It is very central, middle of the Gamla Stan(Means Old Town in Swedish), a cellar hostel with a good architecture. Of course there is some drawbacks such as no windows for natural day-light and small(but well enough)

Located at the old town, one will find his way easily around. The hostel is located mostly under the level of the ground, tiny windows in each room, but all was fine for me. Just remember to read the booking carefully, take your sheets etc to save money. Kind staff, had no

No where near as lovely and bright as the pictures make it look. Only good thing is the location in the old town. The guy on the "reception desk" was not very helpful when me and my friend showed up at 1030 fresh off our ferry to leave our bags. He was to busy talking to

The location of this hostel is pretty good. It's located in the old part but the new part is about 15 minutes walking away. You get a code for the front door so you can enter, they have quite some rooms available. The sanitary is okay but the showers are a bit weird and cheap.

+Found a room at 4 pm and I was alone in the 6 bed rooms. +The price is reasonable for the gammla stan, but you can find cheaper options too. +Very nice neighborhood in the touristic part of Stockholm, close to public transportation - The rooms actually stink - You have to pay

Hallo, gibt' s einen Parkingplatz in der nähe.?Danke. .
"Ask about the type of room. The room for two can be a bed for two behind the partician and with your own key, no the "real room"."
"Avoid room 13 until its door is fixed!"
"Rooms have no daylight and heat"
"choose another hostel. There are FAR better hostels than this one in Stockholm, hostels with much better showers and toilets, and also hostels with staff there most of the day. I would not recommend this hostel at all."
"Keep in mind that the hostel is underground, so no windows in the rooms. If you can't cope without natural light, you might want to reconsider staying here."
