Hostels - Stockholm is home to over sixty
different hostels. The majority of hostels are designed
with the traveller in mind and are located near bus
and train stations. Most will also offer laundry,
Internet, and cooking facilities for guests to use
on site. Hostels in Stockholm are open year round
with a few exceptions, and many are twenty-four hours
so you can have the freedom to come and go as you
please, as well as check in and out on your schedule.
If you know you plan on staying at a particular hostel
it is best to call ahead and make a Reservation
early especially if you think you will be arriving
after 6pm. Some hotels will have someone at the desk
late at night, but many will not. Make sure before
you arrive that there will be someone there to help
you check in. Arriving and having nowhere to stay
could be an avoidable setback. Several of Stockholm's
hostels are located in ships, which can make for a
fun and different stay from the traditional hotel
or hostel experience. Below are a few favourites to
