some rest in the cells - thematic hostel in stockholm May 10, 2011
The concept of this hostel is quite cool, you stay in the dorms of an ancient prison which creates an unique environment. So if you are into experience hostels concepts this is for you, if you just want an affordable bed to sleep you will find cheaper. This is not a party hostel as well.

The dorms of the hostel are located in the prison museum so you have some exhibition in the corridor and so on, the beds are quite comfortable, and the rooms are clean with decent lockers, but you have to pay extra for everything like linen and towels. Internet is paid 1kr a minute. The staff is really friendly and helpful which is a plus.

You can also have breakfast for 80kr, but its not pricey for what you get considering Stockholm prices, since you have a buffet with all sort of food and high quality (just missing some fruit!).

The location of the hostel is also quite pleasant, a lovely island, not too far from the metro and in a walkable distance to the center (20min).

A hostel in a former prison, how brilliant!!!

The hostel is also a hotel, so if you wish to sleep in a luxerous room, that's also possible.

Langholmen hostel is the best hostel I've been. The rooms are not very big, but they look great! You are sleeping in a cell.

You have your own bathroom which is very nice and clean.

The breakfast is great! Not very cheap, but it's worth it!

In the hotel there is also a prison museum in one of the wings. For those who are staying in the hotel or hostel, entrance is free.

The hostel is not very close to the citycentre, but it's a great experience!
