  • You really couldn't beat the location but there was only a keycode to get into the hostel which anyone could've known. Bathrooms were disgusting and the showers were always broken. My bed broke in the middle of the night so I almost landed on the person below me. I got refunded and put in another bed but it was all uncomfortable. I would've appreciated an age limit and wifi that worked. The area itself is VERY expensive and you couldn't cook because the kitchen had bugs.

  • The location on Gamla Stan is excellent, unfortunately the facilities are in bad shape, e.g. the showers (only 4 in the whole house) are mainly broken (but working), the kitchen is really small, place for 4 people on the table, no stove or oven , only a microwave but FREE coffee. There are no lockers to lock your luggage but some option during opening hours of the reception.The personell is friendly and helpful though.

  • Be careful, my first room had a severe bed bug problem. Also the reception is not open 24hrs - so don't lock yourself out of your room!!

  • There should be lockers in the room so that guests can secure valuables.

  • The larger dorm is in the basement which is shady to enter, especially at night. They mysteriously say that there are cameras in use as well, which makes it even more weird. The basement is strange and only superficially decorated, it was like staying in a cave. I was placed above two older men covered with tattoos. Nothing against dudes and tattoos but that accompanied with the smell really ruined this stay for me. No lockers so you're out of luck. Stortorget itself is nice and central.
