    Archipelago Hostel

    by

    One of the best options to stay in Stockholm on a low budget! The hostel is small and it makes the atmosphere of the place. I had a dormitory with four beds. It was large enough to move. There were some chairs inside, as well as a mirror and hangs on a wall. You may use Internet for free in the hostel and there is also a kitchen for everyone - with a fridge and some pans to be used. Toilets and swoers are outside the room.

    Breakfast is not included and you need to pay extra for linen and towels (like in most hostels in the world). However, you may also pay by credit card.

    Great location but dirty and expensive

    by

    This hostel has an awesome location on Gamla Stan, near everything. That said, I'd absolutely never stay there again. It was just too dirty. The towel and bedlinens were clean BUT the foam mattress, mattress cover, duvet and pillow were old, lumpy and beyond filthy with nasty stains and stray hairs. I was so grossed out I could barely sleep. When I asked a staff member for a new pillow on Day 2 of a three-day stay, he looked through their storage closet and could only find a slightly less filthy old pillow. It's offensive how much it costs to stay at this hostel knowing that they could cheaply and easily replace the duvets, pillows, mattresses, etc., since everything was obviously from IKEA (with tags on) and I know those pillows are like 2 euros each. The shower and toilet area smelled like a leaky sewage pipe and I made the terrible mistake of forgetting to bring flip flops for the shower. It was December so I couldn't find flip flops in any stores and there was no way I was going to go barefoot in that place so I showered in my socks. For the price of a twin room at this hostel we could've stayed at a B&B farther from the centre and will definitely do that next visit and just take the subway to get around (http://www.bedbreakfast.a.se/). By the way, the photos of the Archipelago Hostel on Hostelworld.com are very misleading and make the place actually look clean! The photos also show side by side twin beds but most of their rooms, in fact, have crappy IKEA bunkbeds and none of the charming props shown (accent pillows, flowers, nice curtains...). By the way, this place was formerly called Abbes Hotel.

    Directions: Gamla Stan (Old Town)
