Very Good 8.0 From 49 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
The property is situated in the heart of Old Town Gamla Stan.It is about 5 minutes from the nearest train station. It is in an old building which means that you have to carry your suitcase up a long flight of stairs. The rooms are warm. The kitchen has a microwave, kettle and fridge, and tables to sit at. The lady at the front office is very helpful.

Twin room small but good value.
Our twin room was ready just after so no problem booking in early. Room, bedding and bathrooms all very clean. Close to restaurants, supermarket and station. Thought it was a great place to stay in the old town.

You get what you pay for, and that is fine!
Absolutely fine place at that low price. Comfortable beds in a clean room, clean common bath and toilet. No personel present (but a hotline if need be). Very central, 10 minutes from the station. I will certainly come back if I simply need a decent sleepover.

Trevligt mitt i gamla stan! Väldigt tyst från de andra gästerna, lite mer liv utifrån som enkelt stängdes ute med öronproppar. Sängen var skön men väldigt smal och något nerlegad.

Super Lage auch direkt neben der Metro und in der Altstadt also hätte nicht besser sein können ! Zimmer sauber und sehr schön, auch das gemeinschaftsbad war sehr sauber ! Leider konnte man die Zimmer nicht richtig verdunkeln, sodass es die ganze Nacht durch die Straßenlaternen sehr hell war ! Und man konnte nach dem Auschecken das Gepäck nicht im Hostel lassen! Aber ansonsten nur zu empfehlen!!
