Hostel Stockholm

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

A unique opportunity to stay in an old prison, STF Långholmen Hostel is located on Långholmen island in central Stockholm. The building used to be the Crown Prison until 1975, when the last convict left. The hostel is close to Södermalm - well-known for its bars, restaurants, theatres, galleries and lively atmosphere - and the beach, green areas and public transport.

Accommodation is in well-equipped cells with 2-4 bunks, with or without private bathroom, and most cells have their own shower and WC. After your day discovering Stockholm, rest your feet back at the hostel in the TV room, Internet room or grab a coffee at the café and bar.

Inside this distinctive youth hostel visit the prison museum, illustrating the long history of the prison. In contrast take a relaxing stroll on Långholmen - its maze of paths are ideal for walking or jogging.

The rooms were stark and dark. Not surprising as it had been the old prison.

The cell doors make a terrible noise especially noticeable at night

Really great hostel in a quiet location not far from the city, it offers the best of two worlds. The thing I liked the most however was their ability to deal with a difficult booking, I'd changed a couple of dates and not only were they able to modify the booking via email, but once I got there and had to change another date it was easily fixed. I know it's not the usual thing to put in a hostel review but it's when everything goes wrong that find out which hostels are a cut above the rest. The staff were friendly, helpful and the rooms have that authentic prison look and feel.
