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.

It may be better to make it more explicit that all the hostel double rooms are bunk bed rooms
