Location, PCs and internet access at hostel, friendliness and helfulness of staff. Everything was great. The weather in Stockholm was not too great. :o)
Everything! Hotel is well located next to train station and shopping area. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Plenty of common areas, outdoors terrace, clean kitchen, free computers , free internet, free pasta in the kitchen and free sauna! Also the rooms are great for being a hostel, comfortable mattresses, feather pillows, good bunk beds distribution... We were really lucky and have a free upgrade to the 6 people apartment with Ensuite shower, toilet and kitchenette. Also a very positive point is the Hostel security. You have to enter a security access code to get to your room and another one for the common areas and the Night Entrance. I would highly reccommend City BackPackers
The tour's (walking city, horror and sauna) that were run by the hostel were great. The free use of internet, free tea and coffee and pasta. Good location and walking distance to everything we needed. The only thing was that there were floor revovations going on right outside our room so this was a bit annoying
Friendly staff. Possibility to join in activities such as cooking lession. The internet- lounge was nice. Good with free wi-fi.
The location of the hostel is excellent. The hostel is mainly for young people who can put up with crowds of people. Even in autumn there were many guests, but at the same time this a good opportunity to meet other peope and to have fun, especially if you travel by your own. I'd choose this hostel again.
location shower room
Great location, great common areas. breakfast is not worth!
The location was excellent Showers were not so comfortable.
Nice livingroom, kitchen with free pasta:), lots of interesting people, great location, computers with internet etc. It's such a nice&cozy place to stay!
The fact that the hostel is right on the lake allows you to go and see Sweden by day and then come to a peaceful lakefront environment to relax for the next day. There are great trails for walking, well lit at night too. Places for picnics during warm months, a peer, benches to just view the beautiful water.
Very good value for money. It had all the facilities one would need during a trip (kitchen, laundry, cable TV, etc)
Very serviceminded personel. Orthough the reception openinghours are informed to be untill 0600 pm, there was personel untill midnight. Good to have wireless data. As a hostel i think the standard was fine - I can only tell positive about it.
Wifi facility Rooms are small
Well the view of the lake. Rooms were small. Just a bed.
Location - it was close to where I needed to be in Stockholm. There's no staff at the hotel - not even a reception. As such, guests do as they please without any regard for the house rules. I hardly slept during my stay because the walls were paper thin and the other guests made an awful lot of noise. There's no lounge either and guests congregate on the corridor making it impossible to have a good night's rest.
The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. The hotel was safe and located near the centre of the city. The price was OK. It was the lowest price we could find for a hotel located so close to the city centre. There we could meet young people from all over the Europe. I didn't like that there was no staff, no administration, no people. We were afraid that if something went wrong and we couldn't get in with the code, we would have to stay on the street all night. The bathroom was quite bad, it couldn't be locked and there wasn't place for hanging our clothes.
staff is incredibly rude and not always there, meaning that when 10 drunks come back at 3 am there is no one to tell them to pipe down in the common areas. the only thing saving this hostel is the price. you get a bed in a pretty clean room, but otherwise that's it. bring earplugs.
What I liked the best about this hostel is linen isn't required. And you can get towel. It's tiny matter but really helps you if you want to travel light. There's no certain space to eat and have a talk, so many people eat their meal in a room and talk for long.
laundry services and microwave provided, fair location with 7mins walk to metro, free wifi and 2 freely use computers a little bit smelly in the room and no common area. only one female bathroom hv lock
Clean bed, clean toilets. I spilled orange juice on my bedsheet and pillow and the staff replaced both during the day at no charge. The price is reasonable for a place like Stockholm. I like not having to wait for a receptionist to issue me room keys as this was done prior to my trip (using door pin codes). I couldn't really find the hostel because I missed the signboard label -- too small and not prominent. Needed to use Google Streetview to help. The rooms were not soundproofed, could hear conversations from next door and the hallway, too. My room was near the internet kiosks.
being on a main road, it was nosiy early in the morning
Excellent backpackers value for money including sheets, and simplicity of 24 hour code access. As simple as you can get and as much as you need, particularly if you are mostly out visiting friends but need a place to bed down.
It,s a very firendy enviroment, you feel like at home! Very clean and warm
I liked the staying at this hostel because of good location (about half an hour walking from Gamla Stan), because of comfortable beds and because of value :))
Awful people... Impolite, rude... Horrible... If they don't wont to deal with foreigners, they shouldn't offer a service like this. Believe me, when I realized this, I decided to move ride away. The woman, the woman at the reception... Awful woman, awful woman. She shouldn't be there.
The stuff was very helpful. The rooms were clean. There was no breakfast. I think they should serve it also.
The location is perfect for sightseeing the city center, just in 2 minutes walking distance from one of the central subway stations. And the area itself is very nice - designer bars and shops are just around the corner. I was as well happy with cosy atmosphere of rooms, quite comfortable common spaces and free WiFi. Price/quality ratio is very pleased. It is located in the basement, so the guests can't fully enjoy the street view from thier windows.
Very stylish and modern for budget accomodation. A real flavour of Sweden. Being winter, Stockholm was extremely snowy. Therefore you tend to bring alot of debris in to your room inadvertently. Therefore a daily sweep of the room would have made the stay perfect. However, this is me being meticulous. Everything else was great value for money.
The Old Town lodge is in one work great. I loved staying there.. I wouldn't mind staying in the hostel for the whole day, there are so many people with whom you can talk and have very interesting conversations with, I stayed in the dormity room, this room is truly the end! You have to see it when you go there!.. I think the dormity rooms are better than the normal 2 or more persons rooms. You do not have as much place but it is just great, you should see! Everything was totally great! I was very pleased with every single thing in the hostel!
Optimal position, carefully designed even if it's a hostel, cool atmosphere! No free wifi but only a notebook with wifi connection freely avaible but only during reception opening hours.
The location of the hotel is simply great.
Easy to find this hotel. The location is really good. The reception opening time is too short and the room is too simple and crude.
