“Staying in a Prison”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011

This was aa very interesting Hostel on the small Island of Longholmen, just 5 stops by nderground from the centre of Stockholm. It does has small "cells" with bunk beds. But there were many families with young children staying there. The breakfasts have to be eaten to be beleived. They are magnificent. And one can copk for oneself if Stockholm becpmes too expensive. There is a small beach. And the island can be walked round with safety. No cars or roads. So it is quite rural. Thouroughly to be recommended. You can't go to Stockholm with out seeing the amazing Vasa museum, or taking many boat trips.

Room Tip: Rooms for couples are small with bunk beds and there didn't seem to be any cleaning for the week...

Very nice hostel in central Stockholm, close to good restaurants and communications (10 minutes walk).
The downside was that one of the beds smelt old sweat.
We was offered a new room but due to old people in the group we choosed not to change, not a good decition.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2011

I must say, this was a cool hotel/hostel! The rooms are very cozy and the bathroom was great quality as well. 625 SEK/night for 2 bed with towels, linen, and 1 cleaning during stay. Quiet, a bit out of the main district, and a bit away from late night food as well. Attention to detail in the prison theme. Would definitely stay here again! Free wireless internet, but it seemed to cap out after a while. Friendly staff and decent food in the cafe below.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2011

I stayed in a single room for one night. The room is small, but bathroom was an ok size. The location is a bit out of the center. Some people have said that it is 7/8 min walk to the metro.. it is more than that, something like 15 minutes probably at a normal walking pace. But the island on which it is located is quite ok. It is also possible to walk all the way to the old town, quite a hike, but very interesting and beautiful if you hike along the water.

You do have to be a bit careful of the extra charges, breakfast is 90 SEK, sheets and towels were 50 and 40 SEK and lastly the added charge for non members is 50 SEK... so in total you should add about 230 SEK PER PERSON to the room charge if you compare it with some other hotels.
