In a former prison on the island of Langholmen. Rooms are cells with ensuite. Had tellys, wifi etc. Beach nearby. Leafy surroundings. Good kitchen for self catering. Friendly staff. A bus ride from Stockholm Central but fairly frequent. Sleep quality poor, not hostels fault, but...More
The hostel is located in a former prison on the beautiful island Langholmen. During summer you can easily go for a swim just outside the hostel, which seems to be a popular spot also amongst locals.

Thank you for your positive comments! I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our prison. Welcome back!
If you love having a drink by the sea right on the beach (and who doesn’t?) Hornstull & Långholmen should be on top of your list. The area was recently redeveloped and now not only offers artsy bars and edgy restaurants but also a post-modern shopping mall complex for urban retail therapy. Hornstull belongs to the more established and sophisticated neighborhoods in Stockholm and is the typical place where you’ll
find Swedish dads meeting for a latte during their paternal leave, or where local office workers meet up at the art cinema for a drink or a movie after work. The beaches in Hornstull and Långholmen are popular destinations for barbeques and sunbathing during the summer. Bring sunscreen.
