Going to Sockholm alone for a couple days..

I am going to the UK for work. I am 27 and have never traveled outside the US. So Im taking a week to travel after my work is complete. I have neighbors from Stockholm and I made up my mind to add that as one destination.

So I am interested in touring during the day and definately checking out some bars / nightclubs at night. However, I will be traveling alone. What do you suppose is the best way for me to meet people around my age? I am planning on staying at hostals so I can try and meet people. Will it be easy for me to meet people and what is the best way? :)

Thank you.

As said before, Swedish people can be difficult to acquaint. Meeting up with other travellers at a hostel would be a good idea.

Some bars beyond the usual:

* East (at Stureplan square), with funky music and an international crowd

* Sjätte tunnan (Stora Nygatan 43, Old Town), a Medieval pub, most guests are into hard rock music

* Big Ben: A stereotypical English pub, with an English-speaking comedy club on Thursdays, 8pm
