Hostels in Stockholm
Hostels in Stockholm (called vandrarhem) are located throughout the city, some in very nice central locations such as Gamla Stan. Bunks cost around 14-15€ or a bit more in the nicer hostels such as Archipelago Hostels on Stora Nygatan and Skanstulls vandrarhem on Ringvägen. Private twin, single and double rooms are in the 30-60€ range. An interesting and popular choice for Stockholm hostel accommodation is Långholmen, a large former prison situated in a green environment by the water. Linens and towels at most Stockholm hostels are extra (5€ or so) and breakfast may or may not be included. Free wireless Internet is also a common feature.
