Interhostel2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Hostel is near Drottninggatan. Twin room was clean with lockable closets(bring your own lock). Hostel had free coffee, good kitchen and common room for eating but nothing extra. It was an unpleasant surprise that the bed sheets cost 50SEK extra. Part of the surprise was Booking.com messy website and the information about the extra cost was hard to find. Nothing to complain about the hostel itself but notice that when comparing prices. The reception personel seemed to be on a break almost every time we walked pass the reception.
I stayed 4 days with my girlfriend in the Interhostel in Stockholm and it was average. We slept in a 6-People-Bedroom and it wasn't very spacey. Sadly our room didn't have any windows meaning that the air inside was pretty nasty and there was absolute darkness when no light was on. However the Hostel really does have a great, big, clean kitchen where one gets to cook and is a great opportunity to meet new people. So if you are looking for a reasonable priced Hostel where you only need a bed to sleep in and some occasional cooking - great way to save some money in expensive Stockholm - it's the place for you
The service was very poor - we arrived to get the bags we'd stored in the luggage room on our departure day some time after 2pm only to find that the receptionist was on lunch - which was worrying as we needed to catch a train to the airport...! We couldn't find the cleaners that were apparently there to help us, and when the receptionist finally arrived there was no hint of an apology. The place is full of dodgy sexist signs (no woman really wants to be told "underwear optional for girls" etc.) plus the beds were very uncomfortable.
The service wasn't good at all. I didn't stay at the Hostel, but a friend left us his key to his apartment at the reception. We arrive late, around 01.00 in the morning. And the opening hours of the reception was between 08.00am - 02.00am, but at 01.00am the reception was already closed. Suddenly someone appeared and tell us there is nothing he could do for us but maybe he could call someone. So he called this person. Very rough one. She said "I'm sorry, you are not going to tell me how to work. Yes, the reception is closed so if you want your keys you will have to come tomorrow at 08. In the meantime I don't care what are you gonna do. I'm going to sleep." And she hanged up the phone.
I stayed a couple nights in Interhostel, the location is good and generally the place was tolerable, the rooms were quite small, I was in a 4 person windowless dorm room that was tight. The showers were okay as was the wifi and facility, I ate out so I can't really judge the kitchen. This was the first hostel I have stayed at where you had to pay for sheets and towels, I have payed for towels before, but never sheets. If you are coming into Central Station it is about a 20 minute walk, Look into a cab or the buses if you are coming by ferry cause it is a long ways! (more than an hour)
The good thing is I stayed for one night only. I checked in late and there were this guys ahead of me who are trying to make a bargain with the front desk person. It looks like they do not have enough money and receptionist is asking for ID until they can come up with a payment. But the bargaining took forever. The receptionist should just have cut and be firm with them, if they do not agree, then they go somewhere else. IT was finally settled. I had my room close to the main entrance. I could not sleep as there was a guy who is so inconsiderate- he was on the phone talking loudly even late in the night. He also did this early on in the morning. There was also a commotion out on the street so between all of this, I barely had any sleep. The next day, there was a loud argument of these arab guests out at the reception- i just could not catch a break
Very expensive, you have to pay for the sheets, the only one kitchen and the two bathrooms are not enough for the more of 45 rooms, receptionist very rude, no space in the room with a very bad smell due to the impossibility to open the windows. The worst hostel I have ever been!!! Just a good position but I suggest you to don't go there, It's better to pay a little bit more but in a comfortable hostel. I'm really angry because was expensive and you have to pay 50 SEK more for the sheets (come on, it's an hostel...how can I sleep without?! I rent a bed...) but isn't written anywhere. DISGUSTING!
Very well located, this hostel is cheap and you get what you pay for. If staying for a couple of days and wanting a place to rest your head then this is fine. The rooms are clean and fairly new, It can get noisy but if your like me and have ear plugs I would suggest bringing them along, the bedroom I stayed in was also quite light in the morning so an eye mask wouldn't hurt. The facilities are quite basic, you are offered tea and coffee but no breakfast and a huge note is you'll need to pay for your sheets however you can bring your own along. Again your definitely paying for what you get here but by no means is it bad or dirty.
They charge for the sheets (50 SEK). The staff is evil, arrogant and whiney. No windows in the dorms = No natural light. The place is a mess, dirt everywhere and molded food in the fridge. NO WIFI. Save your money, go somewhere else or sleep in the street.
I wouldn't recommend staying at this hostel - it's definitely one of the worst hostels / hotels / etc I've ever stayed in. There's no external windows (or internal windows), so no natural light whatsoever. The ceilings are low, and every room & corridor is gloomy or lit like a hospital corridor. You have to pay extra to rent the sheets, meaning that the difference in price between it and another less awful place isn't as significant - and I'd strongly suggest doing that.
