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.

Hello, in the above it does not indicate how to rate from highest to lowest but the place is well run and I love staying there. I am unable to say anything about its green rating

It's a short walk from Hornstull Station but being a little further away from the city centre makes it more appealing. I bought the 72 hour unlimited travelcard for about 230 SEK and that made it easier. The staff couldn't be more helpful and when I was put into the wrong room due to a system error they refunded me that night, which I really didn't expect but I was certainly appreciative. Even the little things like finding a pair of pliers to fix my vaporiser wasn't a problem. I couldn't recommend this hostel highly enough, it's the little personal touches that make all the difference, you actually feel welcome there. The breakfast buffet costs 98 SEK and believe me it's worth the money, it'll keep you going most of the day.

What a wonderful hostel! The service was like in a hotel, no dirty or loud people around, the breakfast buffet was by far the best buffet I have eaten in any hotel!! Will come back soon!

Die Jugendherberge hat all unsere Erwartungen übertroffen. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, so dass wir uns immer sehr wohl gefühlt haben. Die Lage ist phantastisch: einerseits ist es angenehm ruhig, andererseits kann man mit der nächsten U-Bahn schnell alle Punkte in Stockholm erreichen. Das Frühstücksbüffet sollte unbedingt dazu gebucht werden. Nach einem ausgiebigen, sehr gutem Frühstück haben wir Stockholm erkundet und waren dafür bestens gerüstet. Es war ein toller Urlaub und wir werden bestimmt wieder kommen.
