Advantages lovely hostel. good value, great location
Disadvantages showers not very private, lockers dont work
I stayed at this hostel sometime in June this year when myself and a friend went to Stockholm as part of our travels. We had only intended to stay for 2 nights so had booked this in advance to our arrival, but once we got there we decided we loved Stockholm and the hostel so much that we stayed for an extra 2 or 3 nights. I think we used a site such as booking.com which was simple enough. If you did want to book here you can find many useful links on google so I am not going to list them here.
We stayed in a mixed dorm room with 6 beds in (however there is a variety of rooms including private ones if you feel a dorm is not suited to you). You just pay for the one bed which at the time was 175 Swedish Kroner each – about £20 with the exchange rates back then. This wasn’t the cheapest hostel I had stayed in, although I stayed in one at this price in Helsinki which was just awful, but I felt this was a reasonable price for what it was. I found on my travels that scandinavia is just generally very expensive and as Stockholm is the capital of Sweden I think high prices are to be expected. I was disappointed however that I was not permitted to use my lovely sleeping bag here and instead had to fork out extra money on bed linen. This really grated on me as I resented having to pay the best part of a fiver for something that I felt I did not need. My bedding even mysteriously went missing before I had finished my stay but the staff very kindly replaced this for me without adding on any extra charges. There is also a washing machine and dryer that you can use which apparently is chargeable, however when I used it I wasn’t charged a thing! I was really grateful for the use of washing as I had been travelling for some time up until this point and was fast running out of clean clothes and underwear!
I can’t quite remember what time we checked in, but I do remember that it was in the afternoon some time. The reception is manned by staff up until around 8pm I seem to recall, however if you are arriving later than this it is not a problem as long as you notify the hostel prior to doing so. When we arrived at the hostel I was fairly pleased with the exterior.
