 City Square on Gamla Stan near Noble museum

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.
