Profile: Norrmalm

Profile: Norrmalm

Norrmalm, in central Stockholm, is attached to the island of Skeppsholmen by a bridge which takes you to some of the city’s finest museums. Moderna Museet boasts works by Duchamp, Dali, and Picasso. Summer visitors can check out the Stockholm Jazz Festival, which has welcomed BB King.

If you’re visiting in the winter, strap on some skates and spin around the rink at Kungsträdgården park. The Royal Swedish Opera dates from 1773 and stages classical operas and ballets, while Centralbadet is an elegant bathhouse where you can swim, enjoy a sauna, and grab a cocktail at the bar.

    I don't usually review hotels/hostels but this place deserves one. If you are doubting where to stay in Stockholm please look no further and stay here. I met the best people in this hostel and absolutely loved my whole experience. Maybe I was only lucky but either way the hostel was great and the restaurant next door is perfect, we all got a discount for meatballs and two beers which was super handy. The courtyard was connected with the mentioned restaurant and on my first night there was some program and a bit of live music happening, so indeed the discounted beer was well appreciated ;). Rooms and the areas were clean, maybe only the bathrooms could do with a bit more clean but it was nothing major. Staff also very nice and responded very quickly to my emails with some extra info. This was my first hostel experience ever and to be fair it will be very hard to beat it, the bar was set pretty high. I would recommend this place to anyone.

    Cosy hotel, great location

    This hostel was one of the better ones that I have come accross in Europe. We were greeted with a warm welcome from the staff. Everything is code access which meant not having to worry about losing a key or swipe card. There are lots of funky areas to hang out, a spacious and well equipt communal kitchen and the coolest part is that they have saunas! They also have lots of activities on offer and a supply of free pasta in the kitchen.  There is a restaurant next door where you can get one discounted beer per guest. They offer free hire of ice skates which was cool. We stayed in the private room. It is in the basement so a little dark but it's nice and cosy. Bathroom was a bit cramped but shower heated quickly. Only a 10min walk from central station and that was in snow. Within walking distance to Gamla Stan however, also easy to take the metro from central station. They offer free coffee for guests after 11am. There are two parks accross the road which would be gorgeous to hang out in during summer. I thought this was a great value hostel in Stockholm.
