Enjoyed my stay, nice hostel, clean, and really cool concept. Bit pricey, but so is everything, so that's fine. Location is on a beautiful island, short walk to nearest tube. I didn't find many cafés or shops around but I wasn't really looking either. Overall was cool, would stay again.

I stayed one night in a single room at the Langholmen Hostel, and it was super cool. Decent price, nice bathroom, clean, and that little bit of extra charm - who wouldn't love sleeping in a renovated prison? But seriously, the place is tops. The breakfast buffet had a good variety of food on offer, and good quality too. I had minor troubles in finding the hostel part once I reached the complex - the provided directions to the area were fine, but once I got across the bridge I didn't realise I had to walk around a building, up a hill and turn a corner, especially late at night with no one around to ask for directions! It was all good once I found the place though, the staff were friendly, and I would definitely stay there again.

My sister and I stayed in the hostel for 3 nights it's a fantastic place to stay, nearest tube stop is ten min walk at the most. The prison has been renovated to a very high standard is spotless everywhere, staff are friendly and helpful, the restaurant and bar are warm and inviting with excellent food. Breakfast is nine kronor but well worth the money. If you want to stay somewhere quirky stay here!

We stayed there during out weekend visit to Stockholm in mid-October this year. When booking, I was looking - as always - for a place with a special look and feel. Langholm Hostel was a hit! Prison cells converted to hostel rooms, with bunks and a little window high on the wall on one side and a comfy, clean, fully equiped bathroom on the other side - for us it was a perfect place. Relatively cheap (taking into account that we are in Scandinavia), good location, about 30 minutes to get to the Central Station on foot, bus and subway stops close to the hostel. What I disliked here, was the fact that the bedsheets, towels and cleaning (!) was not included in the room price, not even mentioning no breakfast. I would definitely prefer paying more and not seeing all these separate payments - it's just annoying, isn't it? But still, I totally recommend the place for all of you, comrades inmates:)

Stayed in a double room, at the hostel (private room). The private room was away from the dorm hostel rooms.

Pros:
Good value for Stockholm
Private bathroom and shower which were clean and new
Flat screen tv
New furnishings
Comfortable bed

Cons:
A fair way from the centre of Stockholm - about a 20 minute walk from Gamla Stan
