Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and also the most populous city in the country. It is a charming combination of old and new architecture, and the feeling of and old European city combined with a vibe of a modern city.
The Stockholm hostel options are numerous. But the hostels are a bit spread out, rather than clustered in one part of the city. Hostel beds aren't cheap in Stockholm, but the prices are reasonable for a large Swedish city.
Stockholm is easily accessible by buses, trains, planes, and also ferries. In the city there is a comprehensive and rather well-built public transport system, which includes subways, commuter trains, buses, ferries, and a light rail system. It is reasonably priced and, along with biking, the best way to move around the city. Even walking around the city is not such a bad idea, because the city center is pretty compact. The cabs in Stockholm, however, are a bit overpriced.
There is plenty to do and see in Stockholm. Maybe the biggest and most worthwhile place to visit is the famous Old Town (Gamla Stan), which is a beautiful historic part of the city. You can easily spend half of a day in here, just wandering around the cobblestone streets and appreciating the old architecture and charm of the district.
The archipelago around Stockholm is also worth seeing. Considered one of the most beautiful ones in the world (in the summer, that is), the archipelago has over 24,000 islands on it. Check the ferry line options for details. The Royal Palace (built between 1697 and 1754) is also an attractive tourist destination. In addition, there are plenty of museums and art galleries for those interested.
Stockholm hostels are varied and unique, and you should have no problem finding a great place to stay in the city.

City BackPackers Hostel Stockholm
"Wow! One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Clean, friendly staff, free use of about eight computers, great location. Stay here." … "The best hostel I have stayed at with perfect location. Stockholm is a great city and this hostel is icing on the cake. There are lots of areas where you can chill and meet people. And you can drink in the outside area. I wish I didn't leave." … "This hostel had a great location, and a...
"Rygerfjord Hostel is not like any traditional hostel, since you will be living inside a ship. The installations are in excellent shape, making this a good choice to stay for a few days or longer, a fun place to stay also to meet people, and enjoy the unique experience of living at sea during your stay, even though the ship is docked. The Location The location is quite central, since it is three minutes' walking from the nearest metro...
Hostel Bed & Breakfast
"This cosy hostel is more like a do-it-yourself efficiency than a barren hostel student setting. People come from all areas across the globe as well as all ages. There is a large common area, bar area, and many tables for you to sit at after you make your own dinner or fix a snack in the nearby kitchen. There is even food that other fellow hostelers leave for you to munch on if you are really scrounging for money. The common areas are...
HI - STF Stockholm - af Chapman
"Fantastic!!!" … "The AF Chapman has perhaps the best hostel location I've ever seen. For this category it would be banal talking only about cleanness, breakfast, the kindness of the staff and so on, even if also in these categories the Chapman is very good. Just spend some hours at night on the bridge, looking at Gamla Stam full of lights, and you'll love this place forever." … "I stayed in this hostel in April 2005. It was a...
HI - STF Stockholm - Långholmen Hostel
"Langholmens Vandrarhem STF/HI used to be a penitentiary for women and was not turned into a hostel until the Twentieth Century. The restoration of the facility is amazing. The facility may be difficult to find, but it is worth it. It is the main attraction on Långholmen Island. There is a museum within the facility that is free to all guests. In order to access the museum, which is open daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., you must request the key...
HI - STF Stockholm - Zinkensdamm Hostel
"Great value for money - Excellent facilities. The kitchen is really fully equipped (4 gas stoves, 2 water heaters, coffeemakers). You can also find left but fresh food from previous travelers for free. (Note: it is clearly written on those particular shelves, so please do not take it from anywhere else.) We have stayed in a four bed private room with my friends (including a 12 year old girl), where everybody had her own compartments. The...
2 Kronor Hostel - Old Town
"Great location, but everything else about it sucks. - It's very small. There is a sort of common room, but it's really just four tables crammed into the entrance area. Sitting there is no problem, if you're not anti-social. Well, you get to meet people easier. You had to go across a floor where there seemed to be offices or something to get to the dorms. There are two connected twelve-bed dorms and it gets pretty cramped in there with all...
The Red Boat Mälaren
"The Red Boat Mälaren (Den Röda Båten) is a unique hostel located in Stockholm along the shores of Lake Mälaren. The hostel consists of two large fishing boats (the “Red Boat” and the “White Boat”) which have been converted into hostels. The Location Being a large, red boat, docked along the quay, this hostel is uniquely easy to find. It is convenient to local public transportation and is about a twenty-minute walk from downtown...
Archipelago Old Town Stockholm Hostel
"We spend four days in archipelago hostel in february and we enjoyed it. As well as well located, it was clean, and the receptionist was very sympathetic. Yes, the mattresses are thin, but the beds are so comfortable that you don't notice it and we slept very well. We hired the sheets and that is the only tiny little thing -- they were a bit too small and hardly stayed like we put them before sleeping. Yes, there was no receptionist on the...
City Lodge Stockholm
"City Lodge Stockholm is a very cozy hostel, with an excellent location at a 10 minute walk from Stockholm main railway station. The premises are pretty small and the owner is planning an expansion. It comprises a small reception and a basement where the lobby, rooms, a kitchen, laundry, toilets, and showers are located. There are not many rooms in the hostel so rooms are a little crowded with dorms. The hostel is very well cleaned and...
HI - STF Stockholm - Fridhemsplan Hostel
"This is a hostel, but it masquerades as a hotel. It has the reception area and multi-lingual staff of a hotel, great security (video cameras in all corridors and key-cards for the doors), and a tv and internet connection in every room (just plug in your laptop and away you go, it's free!). It is very well-kept and clean and all the beds are free-standing (no bunks). There are also two computers free for use in the reception area if you want...
Castanea Old Town Hostel
"Castanea Old Town Hostel is located in the heart of Gamla Stan (old town Stockholm, where the "original" Royal Palace is located), minutes away from the main shopping street and Stortorget, but in a quiet, residential area. There are several small businesses on the street where the hostel is, but it is amazingly quiet and peaceful while being a stone's throw away from the action. The walk from the Tunnelbana (underground) is about an...
Gustaf Af Klint Hostel
"I only spent one night at this hostel, sleeping in a four-bed dorm. It's very close to town, cheap, next door to a floating bar, and was the only place in town with a spare bed. Unfortunately, it's next to a floating bar, it really is like living on a boat -- with boat showers and toilets, poor ventilation in rooms, my room smelt humid and bad, not much space in the dorms, and there were small spiders in the room. On seeing the dorm i...
"Skanstulls Vandrarhem is a great hostel for those looking for a comfortable and safe place to sleep. The facilities and the design of the rooms give the place a hotel-like feel. For budget travelers, this hostel indeed offers a great deal. The Location Skanstulls Vandrarhem is located near Skanstull subway station, which is four stations away from the Central Station. It is easy to find the hostel from Skanstull subway station. Near the...
AAE Stockholm Lodge 32
"Location Lodge32, a new hostel, has a convenient location only about ten minutes' walk from the City Hall and about fifteen minutes' walk from the main train/bus station in Stockholm. Despite this, it is a quiet hostel, and definitely not a hostel for people who want to party. If you want to sleep well and have a good base in the city, then this is a great choice. Despite being in the city centre, it has a great quiet location, making...
Best Hostel Old Town Skeppsbron
"Excellent - It was fantastic. Excellent location. The view outside the kitchen window was spectacular day and night. The whole place was clean. There were enough showers and toilets. The shower was one of the best of all the places I've stayed, hot and with very high pressure. The kitchen(s) was extremely well-equipped with lots of fridges, cookery and utensils. I also benefited from the free pasta. The breakfast was a bit too simple for me,...
"Overall Acco Hostel is clean, offers free laundry (although rather difficult to find the one washing machine and dryer free), and most likely the one of the cheapest accommodations you will find in Stockholm; however, outside of these aspects, it is not an ideal place to stay. It is not handicap accessible. Paying in cash will result in an additional fee (and they may refuse cash). The Location Acco Hostel is somewhat difficult to find...
HI - STF Stockholm - Jumbo Hostel
Stockholm Arlanda Airport
"Jumbo Hostel is a very different hostel! Rather than a building, it is an old 747 jumbo jet that has been converted recently into a hostel. It will also be a very different sort of hostel experience! The Location The hostel is easy to spot on the way into Stockholm Arlanda airport and is located on a small hill near the long term parking. There is a free airport bus that stops very near the hostel, and there are also bus stops for...

Best Hostel City
"Good - Best Hostel City was pretty good for my sister and I. While we were only there for a night (we arrived at midnight and stayed until check out time), the shower, washroom, and hostel room were all clean, very easy to use and locate. The night guard was also very accommodating and friendly ... even though we arrived late, he was ready to help us and answer any questions that we might have had.

City Hostel - Central Station
"There is very little to recommend about Abbes Hostel - Central Station. It is a very straightforward, short walk from the train/bus station, which is convenient for a late night arrival or early morning departure, but other than that it is generally discouraging to stay here. Rooms and Bathrooms The dorms are jam packed with as many bunk beds as they could squeeze into the limited space and are very claustrophobic. This is not helped by...

"Hostel Renstierna is well located South of Gamla Stan close to a trendy and area for bars and nightlife. The staff are welcoming and helpful and go out of their way to offer assistance. The breakfast is above average with a good selection of cereals, meats and cheeses. However, the basement dorms can be quite claustrophobic and the six bed I was in definitley felt crowded with only four in it. With six you would tripping over ladders and...

Stockholm Travel Tips & Suggestions
To me Sweden is a very magical place where you can feel the joy and love that everyone has for one another. I also believe that everyone represents their country very strongly, it is powerful. That is why I carry Sweden in my heart and in my soul.
Stockholm is very boring! Interesting monuments are few, streets look like each others, bars during weekends must close at 1 o'clock. The people are cold and rude. I liked trips to islands, and the sight of old town from the boat. I spent twelve days there and got bored after three.
— el chupon de barcelona
I had the pleasure of visiting Stockholm a few years back and I agree that it's one of the most beautiful cities in the world. If you have the opportunity to enter Stockholm by ship from another country, take advantage as it's an amazing perspective to enter by ship in the morning. Skansen was great from a cultural and historical perspective. Gamla Stan is beautiful -- the quiet little walkways on cobbled streets add to the atmosphere of a city that was founded almost eight hundred years ago. The best feeling to me was walking along the waters edge and capturing great shots of Stadshuset (City Hall) from the different angles and meandering along the different walkways by day and night and popping in for a hot chocolate in one of the many cafes. The Stockholm Cathedral (Storkykan) is a must to see. Despite its cold temperature, Stockholm leaves you with a warm feeling inside.
— Carl Joubert
The city is lovely, maybe the most beautiful in Europe. Make sure to visit City Hall, Gamla Stan (the Old Town), and I especially recommend "Under the bridges" boat trip, which will show you beautiful small islands of Stockholm from different perspective. If you have time, go to see Skansen, the oldest open-air museum in the world, there's plenty to see.
I lived in Stockholm for two months and it was incredible! If you are really young and drinking and partying are your main reasons for visiting Europe, don't bother with Stockholm. However, if wandering unique city streets, hanging out at cool cafes, enjoying small villages (on the islands of the city) and finding fun and unusual shops are what you are looking for, it can't be beat. It has been claimed that it is the most beautiful capital city in Europe, and I think it might be. If you are young, especially visit Sodermalm.
I spent my first night in Stockholm in an ultramodern super clean jail. The food was great and I got to listen to classical music piped in on an overhead speaker. In the morning, when I had sobered up, the police sent me over to the Chapman where they had made a reservation for me. You just gotta love the Swedes!
I wasn't thrilled by Stockholm, but any trip to Sweden requires a stay in the capital, and it is pretty. You need maybe two days to look around. Wander around the islands, they are pretty. Skansen is ok, it's an outdoor museum of old Scandinavian buildings and real live animals. Spend half a day here. Walk the shopping street, it's very nice, no cars. Shopping wasn't as expensive as everyone claims. You can easily spend a few hours on this street. Movies are in English with Swedish subtitles, so that's a bonus. Warning: if arriving on a night train from Copenhagen, you'll get in at 6am, and nothing opens until 10!
