Location is fine and the room was fine but the facilities are completely inadequate. Having one kitchen for the amount of people there is always going to be a problem but the toilets and showers are even worse. One shower with a toilet and one separate toilet is a joke.
Best Hostel Old Town is Stockholm's most centrally situated hostel. Everything that the city has to offer in the form of attractions and entertainment is within walking distance.
Outside the entrance at Stortoget, there are several restaurants and cafes to choose from and most offering outdoor seating. The Royal Palace, Nobel Museum and Storkyrkan (Stockholm Cathedral) are our closest neighbors. Boats to Djurgården with Grona Lund amusement park and Skansen zoo are just a few minutes away by foot.
Best Hostel Old Town is the perfect starting point for any family ' small or large ' that is ready to explore the city.
During the day, the main square of Old Town, known as Stortorget, is bursting with life with crowds of visitors from all over the world. Late in the evening and throughout the night, the area is peacefully calm and quiet, largely due to lack of vehicle traffic and the fact that the restaurants of Stortorget are closed by midnight at the latest.
We are proud to offer freshly renovated facilities in a building that dates back to the 1600s.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Location is fine and the room was fine but the facilities are completely inadequate. Having one kitchen for the amount of people there is always going to be a problem but the toilets and showers are even worse. One shower with a toilet and one separate toilet is a joke. You will be queuing for both in the mornings. If you want to stay here you should invest in a room with a bathroom or compare prices with other hotels/hostels with their own facilities.
