This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Smack in the middle of Gamla Stan (within crawling distance of my favorite bookstore there, the SF bokhandeln, as well as several awesome cafes for hanging out with a mug of tea or hot chocolate), the location of this place couldn't be better.
This isn't a hostel as I'm used to them, though; there's a door on the street which is always locked (no publicly accessible lounge or entrance to meet up with people at), the reception is only open for a very narrow window of time, and basically the 'hostel' is located on two floors of a building which also houses who knows what other things.
My room was nice and clean (if small), but to reach the kitchen (and toilet/bathroom, due to the ones on my floor being in the process of being renovated) I had to leave the hostel, go up a floor in the building, and re-enter the hostel there. Found this is a bit weird of an arrangement, though I guess it worked.
