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.

Overall our stay was fine. We enjoyed ourselves. Although the hostel really needs some urgent TLC - starting in the bedrooms finishing in the washrooms. We were three people in our four bed dorm but found it rather crowded as there isn't much space to put things. Everyday we

(+) Excellent location, in the middle of Old Town, as the name suggests. The beds are clean and comfortable, and there is a nice seating area next to the kitchen. (-) The kitchen is a little too small. The toilets were for the most part clean, but not fresh. The door knob of

This hostel is at perfect location. And that is the only positive. It is underground and the room was too small for us. We have booked 4 persons room and we could not move when we were inside. No place for our big luggages and that was making our movement in the room even

It's a nice dorm hostel with good kitchen facilities. The beds are not great and smelled a bit. But we slept good for a few nights. The door passes are blocked really fast because of the magnet. The location is right in the middle of the old city center and near a supermarkt. We

This underground hostel had very small, cramped rooms but a really cool atmosphere. The staff were so lovely and patient. The kitchen was good and the wifi worked in the rooms. The showers smelt awful, but this was only a minor fault. Perfect location - situated right in the

"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."
