4.22km from Texas LonghornThe decor and atmosphere in the hostel isn't heavy and oppressive at all, but amazingly clean and bright. The cells are small but they contain absolutely everything you need, with many thoughtful touches. The private bathroom even had a hairdryer, something I don't expect with budget or hostel accommodation. The staff were really friendly, knowledgeable and incredibly helpful. The jail theme prevails with heavy cell doors, and bars on the high windows but the room was light and bright, as were the public areas. The whole place as spotlessly clean. Comfortable beds and hanging rails for clothes together with a small table and chairs. The thick walls meant we were never disturbed by other guests coming and going, even over the weekend. Everything exceeded my expectations. The guest kitchen was spacious and well-equipped, with each guest having a lockable compartment in the fridge for perishable foods. For a small fee you could do your laundry if you wanted. The Prison Museum is off the reception area, with some fascinating information about the history of the place. A corridor connects to the Långholmen Hotell, so if you want to use their restaurant you don't even have to go outside. An excellent breakfast in the hotel can be purchased for a small fee. The island of Långholmen is a little way from the main attractions in the city but it is a very pleasant walk, or a few minutes on the underground from nearby Hornstull Station. I recommend booking through Hostels International if you are a member, or a member of the YHA in the UK, you will get a slightly better rate as a member if you do this. If you are claustrophobic or extremely large you might find the small cells are not to so good for you.
