If you’re looking for an unusual place to stay in central Stockholm, Langholmens Vandrarhem STF/HI is in a former prison built in the 1800s. Hostelworld guests have said this is a ‘friendly hostel with character in a beautiful location’ with ‘very clean and comfortable’ rooms in the former cells. There’s a restaurant and pub in the old prison hospital, while the hostel is surrounded by lush greenery and beaches. Reviewers frequently tell us how much they enjoyed their ‘lovely’ morning swim; it’s little wonder this hostel was voted the best in Sweden in 2008 by Hostelworld users!

Property Description

We offer unique accommodation in an old prison - stay in the old cells!

Langholmen is a famous island in central Stockholm, close to Sodermalm, which is well-known for all its bars, restaurants, theatres, galleries and lively atmosphere. We are close to beach, green areas and public transport.

Accommodation is in well-equipped cells with two-to-four bunks, with or without private bathroom. All rooms have bunk beds, even the twin rooms. Most cells have their own shower and WC.

Every morning we serve our delicious breakfast. There is free Wi-Fi as well as an Internet café if you don't have your own computer.

Our reception, which contains a boutique and a cafeteria, is open 24 hours a day. We also have a pub, restaurant, a laundrette and bike rental.

Bed linen, towel, breakfast and cleaning are not included in the price, but can be hired/bought in the reception. Breakfast is SEK 98, bed linen SEK 80 and departure cleaning is SEK 35.

Located in central Stockholm, our large hostel is situated on a green and quiet island close to public transport. Langholmen is the most captivating hostel in Stockholm. It offers accommodation in the original, but now freshly renovated, prison cells in what used to be the Crown Prison. Built in the 1840s, it served as a prison until 1975, when the last convict left the island.

Really nice setting on a small island within the city area . The rooms are converted prison cells but very well done and clean and tidy with ensuite bathrooms. Very friendly staff and quality buffet breakfast. Top tip , rent a bicycle from reception as its only 15 minutes to central stockholm on dedicated cycle path.

Overall excellent hostel. Easy to get to, great amounts of parking. Though the breakfast isn't included in the price it is totally worth it for the money. Only complaint is that the property is massive, as such it is difficult to find specific things within and the bar didn't seem to have been open during my stay. Otherwise will definitely stay here again. Rooms were very comfortable and super clean.

We had a wonderful stay here with our 15 month old. The rooms are exceptionally clean and all that we needed for a place to sleep. The breakfast is excellent! The location is slightly away from the main attractions such as old town and museums, however easily reached by bike which is what we did. If you take a baby bed it might be cramped, if you are sleeping with your baby be sure to confirm you have beds side by side rather than bunkbeds, we got the bunkbeds which was not ideal with a baby.
