Best place for girls trip

Lots of good bars and restaurants. Not too expensive. Attractive area to stay in and felt like an authentic part of Stockholm to stay in with easy travel around the city.

Söder is the area of where the youths gather (mostly the hipsters) and have fun. There are lots of restaurants, cafes, bars, and nightclubs. Stockholm nightlife central.

Interesting part of town, especially for young people. Good mix of old and new. Just stroll around to make your own discoveries. Fantastic views from platform of Katarinahissen (an elevator which is currently out of order)

Södermalm is definitely worth a visit; only a short stroll through Old Town brings you to its parks, antique stores and coffee shops.

We stayed on Sodermalm and whilst there where quite few chain pubs, and restaurants so you could have been in any city. I wasn't bad and it wasn't great.
