“Small rooms but comfortable and quiet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2011

Stayed in a four person room with 2 bunk beds. The room was very small. In fact, with luggage, it was impossible for all four people to stand in the room at the same time and it took careful maneuvering in the mornings and before bed. The beds were average but the en suite bathroom was clean and nice. The kitchen area can get quite loud and wi-fi is only available in the kitchen. The front desk is staffed for a very short time, which is challenging when you need assistance. It is located in Kungsholmen, near Fridemsplan t-stop, so it is a bit of a trek or a 10 minute metro ride from the city center, Gamla Stan and Sodermalm. This hostel is a nice place to stay, especially if you appreciate a quiet place in a pretty neighborhood and want to avoid the crowds near central station and Gamla Stan.

Coming to Stockholm for three nights we were looking just for a place to sleep. Important was not too expensive but not cheap one and close to Stockholms City. So we got reservation via booking.com and came to Stockholm Hostel.
It has been a great surprise to us as we didn't expect such a nice place and so many
nice and helpful young men there.
Hostel was not completely ready yet, but what a group of young peaople achived with own hands was astanished! Really! We wouldn't advice it as a place for living but for short visits (business like as our) you con't dream a better place.
Surprising cleanliness and original location as well as furnishings.
You'll never be dissatisfied there!

We stayed only one night, but will definitely come back. Only surprise was that there were no windows in the room.

The hostel is amazing - very comfortable, well situated, clean and quiet. We spent there great time a week ago and we highly recommend it.
The kitchen is very well equipped - you will find there everything what you need to prepare the meal. Room we had was very spacious and clean. Every room has it's own bathroom with shower (modern style). All is new and fresh. Flat TV in the room was also advantage, although there is a big tv in the dinining-living room with two sofas, and with a lot more international TV channels available.
The hostel is 4 min walk from subway station and the same distance from the supermarket.
If we are to come back to Stockholm, we definitely stay in this hotel :)))

They offered us a very large room for just 2 persons. The staff is incredible nice and glad to give you all the information you need about the city, transports, restaurants and so on...It's just about 20 minutes from the central station if you like walking and just 5 minutes by the T-Bahn. The kitchen is very useful 'cause the restaurants in S. are not so cheap and even more for having the possibility of meeting other guests and chat. I will recommed it at all!

Room Tip: The rooms are very silent because insulated

Clean, well located, quiet, warm, modern... what else do you want in a hostel? Good Price! And yes: they do offer ALL of that!
The kitchen is well equipped, the kitchen area is nice to sit in, it's comfy all over... The IKEA beds and duvets provide all the necessary for you to get an excellent sleep, there's enough power plugs (yes, that's not everywhere the case!!!), WiFi in the kitchen, heaters everywhere so you don't feel cold even in Stockholm winter...
The only negative I could find was that the reception was sort of never occupied, there's just a number you can call (I wonder where from though if your phone wouldn't work or something) and that there's no information on the city (maps, etc). However, I sort of assume that this is an all new hostel, with time they might get that sorted as well!
I rate it one of the best hostels in Europe, and trust me I've seen many of them... most of them old-school hostels. This one got the overseas' spirit you get in Australia or Canada since a long time over to the old continent! YAY!
