Youth hostels in Stockholm
Youth hostels generally have a high standard in Sweden, but are also higher priced than elsewhere. Two people in a double room quickly pay over 500 kronor – but without bed linen, towels and breakfast. Therefore, a cheap hotel can be the better alternative. Nevertheless, if you are travelling alone, you can stay in a youth hostel very well and cheaply.
STF Youth Hostels
Especially the hostels that belong to the Swedish association STF (Svenska Turistföreningen) are highly recommended:
- STF Youth Hostel av Chapman
Youth hostel in an old sailing ship on Skeppsholmen Museum Island.
- STF Youth Hostel Zinkendamm
Youth hostel on the central island of Södermalm.
- STF Youth Hostel Gamla Stan
Youth hostel in the centre of the old town with double, single and family rooms.
- STF Youth Hostel Långholmen
Youth hostel in the former prison on the island of Långholmen with the former prison cells as double and four-bed rooms.
- STF Rygerfjord Hotel & Hostel
Youth hostel in a ship on the southern shore of Mälaren in the central district of Södermalm.
Af Chapman Youth Hostel
Probably the nicest hostel in Stockholm is the STF Vandrarhem Af Chapman in the centre of Stockholm. Some of the hostel’s rooms are housed in an old sailing ship anchored at the pier of Skeppsholmen island.
Also part of the hostel is the house in front of the pier, where the reception and breakfast room are located, along with other guest rooms. In total the hostel has 77 rooms with 282 beds.
