We stayed in this unique hotel for a few days.
It's a bit out of the centre but the metro runs often.
The island that the hotel is on is worth a quick walk around after breakfast, which is the typical scandanavian smorgasboard, was what you would expect.

Now the bad part, the housekeeping was not up to standard. The glasses were not cleaned on our stay, neither were the towls they were not replaced just folded and put back on the warmer. Not enough paper was left in the toilet, but the room was spotless when we first entered it, it was just the day to day upkeep that had problems.

This is a hostel that used to be a prison. Your room is a prisoner's cell, and is as tiny as can be expected. The bunk bed was comfortable, the bathroom barely big enough to turn around in , and they had a TV. It was a fun and enjoyable stay, considering that you are not in a hotel - but a hostel-like accommodation. If you like creepy situations and haunted houses, this is the hostel for you :) I did not dine there, so cannot comment on food/restaurant.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in September. I don't normally stay in hostels but because Stockholm is so expensive we were left with no choice. I wasn't particularly looking forward to it I have to admit, but, I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are very small but equally very clean, what more do you want? The beds were really very comfortable and we slept brilliantly every night. The banging of the huge prison doors can be disruptive in the morning but you soon get over it.

The shared facilities which I was dreading turned out to be fine. Again they were very clean and because of the time of year, very quiet. I showered on my own every morning and there's plenty of sinks for the evening routine.

The actual hostel itself is interesting to explore. And it's nice having the pub inhouse as it were although we didn't eat there it looked expensive. We used the kitchen to make ourselves breakfast and it was well stocked and kept clean.

Getting into the centre wasn't an issue, it's a 15 minute walk to the station but it felt shorter, we timed it one day and we were sursprised it took so long. It's a pleasant area and the walk to the station is nice. No complaints.

Overall I highly recommend this hostel, free wifi was a nice touch too. It's not a place that you necessarily look forward to going back to but it is clean and comfortable and most importantly reasonable and in Stockholm I don't think you can ask for more than that!

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor in room 7 which is part of the museum and coordined off from the rest...

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.
