Liked: For an hostel standards is very good

Disliked: Noise in the corridors (room´s soundproofing issues), but the noise was only made in the morning, not at nigth :) The direcions to the hostel have to be better, and the signs and ligth in the Långholmen park also have to be better.

Liked: The standards are equivalent to that of a hotel, clean and great decorations to give the "prison feel". Totally enjoyed my stay, got upgraded from a 4 bedder room to a 2 bedder room without any extra charge. Though it was slightly cramp, the bed and pillow were generally comfortable. Would definitely stay here again!

Disliked: Well.. the location, but paradoxically, the location gives it the "prison" atmosphere

Liked: We loved our stay! Not only was it convenient and clean, but the "prison" theme was so creatively executed, no pun intended. The kitchen and living room were wonderful. We will always remember New Years Eve fireworks on the island bridge, Spectacular!

Liked: Well, first off- the fact that you get to stay in an old prison is reason enough to stay at this quirky place. But combine that with really awesome, helpful staff, an a good location near some cool restaurants and shopping and I think this is my favorite place to stay in Stockholm

Liked: I was truly amazed by location, staff and prices! Instead of receiving a four-person dorm as I had booked, I was upgraded to a two-bedroom that I had all to myself for the entirety of my stay, for the same price! Breakfast was cheap, considering Stockholm prices, but very rich and diverse. Also the beach right next to the hostel is simply amazing and calls for swimmers in the summer!

Disliked: I have nothing to complain about except the distance to the city center by foot is about 4km. Long walk for some, but there is a subway station a short walk away.

Liked: This hostel was a real jail until 1975 and we literally lived in the museum!!! Unique experience.

Disliked: There is no nice common area for the travelers, just a small lounge. No kitchen to make tea. I think because it is a hotel too. Anyway, it was a lack of connection with other travelers.
