“Clean, friendly hostel but room far too small.”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Our group (4 adults)were looking for a cheap, well positioned hostel for a 3 night break which we found. The hostel is clean and the staff very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately the room was tiny. The hostel was pretty full when we booked and I think to get a bit extra money the hostel squeezed two bunk beds into a room for one. There was no room to move about and the clothes and cases storage consisted of one chair and four coat hanger left on the bed rails. I would have preferred to be told that the hostel was fully booked so we could have tried somewhere else livable. One of our group actually left after the first night and booked into a nearby hotel. We were told that by law the windows are not allowed to be opened but our friends hotel had opening windows?

Hi,

Thank you for your message! Im sorry to hear that you got a small room. We have heard this before and right now we are actually taking some beds out of the rooms - just to make more space since some guests have mentioned this problem to us. The windows have to be looked because its no sprinklers on the upper floor, only on the ground floor. That is what the fire rule is about. Maybe your friends hotel had sprinkler inside his/her room?

I hope you will return some day so we can make it up for you :-)

Take care and have a nice evening!

Best regards,

Niclas

We booked this hostel not knowing that the rooms have no windows, this might not be true of all the ruins, but I think at least half. Usually I'd expect somewhere with no windows to be cheaper. In the end it didn't really matter, the rooms are well ventilated and we slept very well. The service is great and I would stay there again, I just wish they were more up front about the lack of windows.

1st time staying in a budget hostel where you shared dining area and all kitchen utensils among all hostel guest. A great experience, There are 3 fridges for you to keep your stuffs but make sure you leave a name tag on it. 1 vending machine selling drinks and toothpaste/brush etc. 1 coffee machine charging 20SEK. Dining area have sitting area tWhen we arrived, Robin at the front desk is very helpful and friendly. o watch TV.
Our room is clean. This is the 1st time we need to rental bed linen, pillow cover etc making our bed. a bit fun. I think this is a hostel suitable for all younger people especially for those on budget. The hostel is simple yet clean. We are told to leave key in hotel when we are out for sightseeing aos no worry of losing it. You will need a passcode to enter the hostel too.

I stayed in the hostel for two days. There's wifi and the bath is pretty clean. These are the only pro in my opinion. The room are too small! you can't even move inside it. The morning at 8 you don't have hot water since everybody are using it ( this was the answer of the reception). You cannot even drink a beer in the kitchen! the bad sheets are required but you have to pay to have it!!! I really didn't like this hostel

Hi Domenico,

Thank you for you responce! Im sorry that you got a small room, tell us next time and we will make sure that you get a bigger and nice room. About the water the information you got was wrong from the staff - there was a communal construction work that day and the whole neighborhood were out of water during 3-7 hours :-/

We are very strict about the "non alcoholic policy" to keep a nice and peaceful atmosphere inside our hostel. The basic business idea of Stockholm Hostel is to get people to sleep good, let them cook their own meals in the kitchen to save money and just have a nice vacation. We have tried to run the hostel without this rule for many years but it didnt work because people thought it was ok to drink heavily and do the harlem shake until 5am in the morning... Since we started with this rule we actually, believe it or not, get loads of great feedback from 99% of our customers :-)

All the best and have a nice evening!

Niclas

This hotel is cheap in compare with the prices of Stockholm. The hotel have a good location and have a good kitchen for cook your food and save your money ;)

The rules of the hotel are very heavy you can't enter alcohol drinks inside the hostel and if you doing it they can punish you with a very expensive penalty.

The staff was friendly and very helpful, rooms with clean and big bathrooms, quiet and calm place to stay. Really enjoyed staying there, had no problems. We had our roomed clean at request because we stayed 7 nights and we had no issues whatsoever. I recommend it if you want a clean, practical place to stay in, close to the city center and metro/bus stations.
