Hostel in the old prison

At Långholmen’s Youth Hostel you stay in the original but now totally renovated prison cells of the Crown Remand Prison (Kronohäktet). Kronohäktet was built in the 1840s and was closed in 1975. You stay in 2 – 4 bed cells that today offer smart solutions for a comfortable visit. You get a discount if you are a member of the STF (Swedish Tourist Association). In the summer and on weekends, you can even book a cell with a shower and WC at a small extra cost. Our reception has a small shop and a mini café and is open day and night.

P.S. You get your own key to your cell!
