This is a review of the 2nd branch of this hostel at Skeppshorn 22 that was opened last year... I believe there is another on Transgund. Location-wise this place is GREAT. Very close to the Royal Palace and its a quick walk back home after you roam around old town or after you go on a boat tour. It's also...

When travelling in Scandinavia, you cannot expect anything to be cheap. Best Hostel Old Town is in a very very central location in Gamla Stan, which normally is where the more expensive accomodation is situated, at a reasonable price. Being a hostel, all facilities are shared and linen is compulsory. The rooms were clean, the kitchen was great and the...

We were a group of six people staying at Best Hostel Old Town over a weekend. The location is unbeatable, right in the Old Town in the city centre. The place is clean and the standard is modern. Also, it is very reasonably priced for such a location. The manager, Lars, is super nice and really puts the guest experience...

Well, we were looking for a cheap hotel in Stockholm down town, Gamla Stan to stay over for the week-end! The property was in the best place we would have expected; right in Gamla Stan, at a walking distance from all tourist places so we did not have to take the bus or metro during our 4 days stay in...

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
