Set in a converted liner with six decks, the M/S Birger Jarl Hostel & Hotel is a great option for budget travellers in the heart of the city.

All are cosily decorated with original wooden furnishings and come with heating.
A buffet breakfast is available and guests can make use of a small kitchen corner with a microwave and kettle. There is also a TV lounge and a 24-hour reception. What's more, free cruises through Stockholm's archipelago are organised by the hostel on certain dates, as well as various food cruises at a discounted price (more information available from the hostel reception).
The exquisitely preserved medieval heart of Stockholm is just a stone's throw from this hostel, and you'll find major attractions like the Royal Palace and Drottninggatan Street for shopping are just a 20-minute stroll away.
