Cheap Hostels in Stockholm
Search Stockholm hostels with up-to-date availability and book a hostel in Stockholm.
Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and a lovely city to explore. Located on 14 islands, it offers history, entertainment, museums and green spaces. Finding the best place to stay in Stockholm depends a lot on your budget, style of traveling and what you plan to do while here.
Hostels have the advantage of being located close to the city center or close to the public transportation stations. So, you’ll be able to travel to/from the sights and to/from the airport easily.
Even if the hostel uses the names “youth hostel” or “backpackers” , it doesn’t mean there’s an age restriction or you cannot stay there unless you travel with a backpack. These days, “youth hostels” typically refer to places offering dorm-style accommodation.
Aside from saving money on your stay – and in Sweden , the accommodation really adds up to the cost of traveling – hostels are also excellent places to meet fellow travelers. Whether you stay in a dorm or use the common areas , you’ll bump into other travelers and conversation easily follows.
If you want to save money but staying with 20 other traveler doesn’t sound too appealing, there are always the private rooms (with private or shared bathrooms) to choose from. Sure, they are more expensive than dorm beds, but are worth it especially if you travel with your partner and want some intimacy.
When it comes to the prices, expect to pay from €25.64 per night for a bed in a 12-bed dorm in a hostel in central Stockholm; a twin room will set you back about €72 per night (shared bathroom) in a hostel in Södermalm.
Try to book your bed in advance and remember that the prices go up in July and August, the peak travel months.
