Awesome place to stay just outside of Stockholm, but great transport links. Fantastic stay in a prison and the rooms were great fun, we went out of season meaning to restaurant wasn't open which was a bit of a shame but the breakfast was still good. Fantastic experience

I stayed in one of the former cells that is now a private room with en suite bathroom. The room and bathroom are tiny, but you're only sleeping there anyway, so that works fine. The whole place was clean and fairly quiet and the staff was nice. The location is very pretty. It was too rainy for me to check... More

Interesting place with all the prison story. Great breakfast, highly recommend. Room is extremely small given it's a prison cell. And it could be very noisy at night when people go back to their 'cells', and people walking outside, and my friends were waken up by the crazy birds at 3am for two nights! A bit far away from metro.

for a hostel, very good. it is run by a bunch of kids who seem to be the best teacher's pets i have ever seen. Very harsh on the rules but never telling you where your room is when you arrive or asking if you need help when you are struggling with your luggage. Service? none. Good for the students... More

This hostel is super interesting! It's located at an old prison in Stockholm, there's a kitchen, a restaurant, and a gift shop. My friend and I were there for four days in December. The staff were super helpful and nice. You can do laundry there and get a box in the fridge for your groceries. Hemköp is about 15 minutes... More

You walk into Langholmen Hostel and might be a bit apprehensive, but once you take a walk around and look in your room, you realize what a spectacular job was done in the transformation of this place into somewhere that is comfortable to stay for a few nights. The rooms are small, but still with plenty of room for two... More

An amazing place in one of the numerous islands of Stockholm. It was a real prison and you sleep in the real jails. Everything is restyled and fashion but with the ancient taste of the prison. In a certain way you can also be moved living in the same places of the prisoners. Breakfast was incredibly various and good! I... More

This place was everything I hoped for; the cells are clean, and for one person or two close people it is perfect. The place is on an island making it peaceful but it is still very easy to get to on public transport. If you are looking for a super fun alternative, try it out. The breakfast is also very... More
