This is the second time we have stayed at this hostel. Both times had a private two bed dorm with bathroom. Very unique, comfortable and easily accessible from the central station via the subway. Cannot fault this place. If you want somewhere cheap with all the amenities look no further. Will definitely go back again next time we are on... More

Yes, this hostel was a prison and since Sweden has one of the lowest criminal rate ever they converted it in a very nice place to stay! I stayed there twice, the first time in November 2009 and it was totally random since that was the only affortable place I found when me and my friend decided to go to... More

Staying in an old prison was definitely unique, but our bunk beds were surprisingly comfy and the room was big enough for the two of us. We also had our own bathroom with a shower, towel warmer, and hair dryer. The room also had a TV and area for storing luggage. We did have to pay for bedding. You also... More

We have been seduced by the concept of the hostel and by its affordance. Sleeping in a former jail, what a strange idea ! Thank you for these 2 nights in Langholmen, we recommand it. Good idea for a 2 lovers night.

It is unique! Very nice experience to stay in a "prison" like that. We can't stop taking photos inside the hostel. The museum is just inside the hostel, it worths a buck to visit. The room is very clean but it is small. We don't even have a place to walk when we opened all our baggage. It takes 15... More

This is a former prison, where what used to be the cells now function as the rooms. The double room we stayed in was therefore a bit small, but served its purpose perfectly. The room, hallways and the showers were clean. It is located on a lovely island, but a bit far from the city center. If you stay here,... More

My husband and I visited Sweden and spent 3 nights in Stockholm at Langholmen. Our room ("Cell") was small, as expected, but clean and comfortable. We had a double bunk room with private bathroom and shower. For an extended stay, I would get a larger space but for our purposes this was fine. The facility itself was convenient and the... More

This former prison has lots of character. Like everywhere in Stockholm, it's expensive, but clean with all the amenities. The waitress in the restaurant at dinner was lovely; she saw I was on my own and took extra care and even brought me a complementary starter. On arrival, I got an upgrade on my room, which can't be bad. The... More

The area is a little bit off track, but in the summer this is just good since it's located in an area where you just want to sit outside in the nature and relax. Along the island there are numeral places to sit and have a picnic and to swim. So how is the Långholmen hostel? It's very nice, clean... More

We stayed in the Langholmen Hostel for two nights and were slightly apprehensive because of the word "hostel" - but it's not really a hostel at all if you book your own ensuite private room. Admittedly, the room is small, but that - and the bunk beds - just adds to the prison atmosphere. They are clean and modern but... More
