Mosebacke Hostel
Reviewed 4 July 2011

Due to a late change in plans i had to find someplace to stay. Mosebacke was the only available option with a decent price but I wish I had stayed somewhere else.

Small rooms without windows. An A/C-system that was very weak, bad sound insulation and a breakfast that left quite a bit to wish for.
As the previous poster said, the bathrooms and shower areas are terrible. Always damp, due to lack of door between showers / wash baisins. Often no paper on the toilet, dirty in general with dead ants in the ceiling.

The only positive is the location. Based in the best part of Söder, which i think is the best are to stay when visiting. If you have good weather it is doable, but if you have rain and cold weather and have to stay in the hostel, it really is a poor place to stay.

If the cost was 300-500 Kronor (30-50€) for a double room I would be more "understanding" (except for the toilets!), but we payed 800 kronor/night and it was not worth it

We stayed in a doublebed-room, including breakfast (kosts 40 kr. if you book only a bed). The room was small, but nice and clean. The beds were nice and soft. There was no window in the room, which made it a little bit claustofobic. There is WiFi in the hotel, but no computer, so bring your laptop if you want to have internet.
The bathrooms are clean and have a lot of showers, but they are together in a big space, not separate.
The hostel is in Sodermalm and it is about 15 minutes walk to the old town and about half an hour from the central station.
We hade late check-in and the key for our room was in a key-locker. We should have received a code for the door and key-locker, but we didn't and were lucky that someone from the hostel was still there to open the door and the locker. Monday after a day walking around we couldn't come in to the hostel, because they changed the code, but didn't tell us. Another visitor opened the door.
The breakfast was ok. There was bread, knackebrod, and muesli and cornflakes, cheese, meat, milk, yoghurt, tea, coffee and orangejus.
If you just want to visit the city and don't be in your room the whole day, it's a good hostel!

I stayed at this hostel with my fiancé as we visited Stockholm briefly in early May. The place is trendy and modern, has free wi-fi, breakfast included in the price, friendly staff and clean rooms and it's located in a beautiful area. The shared bathroom wasn't great but that's the only minus.

Gamla Stan (Old Town) is within walking distance from the hostel and so are nearest metro and bus stops. The famous and amazing vegetarian buffet restaurant Hermans is just around the corner and Viking Line terminal is 20 min walk away in case you are taking a ferry to Finland.

Warmly recommended!

Stockholm was my first experience as a solo traveler and it was an amazing experience. Mosebacke Hostel is an amazing hostel, with friendly staff and a common room in which you can easily meet people.

Positive Points:
It's a quite place and if you need to rest it is amazing. However, at the same time, you can easily meet people in the common room.
Real clean.
Friendly staff.
Great location.
You can use the kitchen, which is well equipped. You can buy meals and store them in there.

Negative Point:
I've slept in a single bed room, which had no windows. That was the only thing I didn't enjoy in the hostel.
It is not a cheap place, specially considering that it is an hostel (although a very good one). However, Stockholm is an expensive city.
