2Kronor Hostel is located on the edge of Old Town looking out over the water. The hostel is family-run and, appropriately, has a calm, family-friendly atmosphere (read: partying isn't allowed). Within walking distance of just about every noteworthy tourist attraction in Stockholm, the hostel boasts a great location and hard-to-beat rates.
The rooms are small and basic. Very basic. A bed, a lamp, and maybe a desk are about all you get. You’ll even have to rent sheets and a towel if you don’t have your own, but everything is clean and recent renovations have kept the interior up to date with simple Scandinavian design. Staying in Old Town means you shouldn’t be spending too much time in the room anyway.
The family-run atmosphere means that reception hours are limited. During the summer you’ll find someone at the reception from 9 AM-8 PM (except for an hour at lunch), the rest of the year hours are 9 AM-11 AM and 3 PM-8 PM.

About the 2Kronor Hostel Gamla Stan neighborhood
Dating back to the 13th century, Gamla Stan is the original Stockholm and the don't-miss sightseeing zone. It's also fairly convenient, as Gamla Stan bridges bustling Norrmalm to the north and hip Södermalm south. The bulk of Gamla Stan is on the island Stadsholmen, though Riddarholmen—the tiny island just to the west—is usually seen as part of Gamla Stan.
