Save A Little In Stockholm

A vacation in Stockholm may be just what the doctor ordered, but the pocketbook might have something to say about such flightly adventurism. Still, there may be a middle ground if the few diamond level locations to spend the night that wont come at a three carat price can take a bit out of the bill.

In Sweden, unique hostels spring from old quarters:

Gustav Af Klint

My wife and I booked a two-bed cabin on the Gustav Af Klint, a beat-up, decommissioned steamship-turned-hostel, because it was a bargain at around $60 a night and in a great location, near Stockholm’s Old Town and the metro. Turns out, it was a memorable, pleasant base for our time in Stockholm, too.

Our room was spartan at best, with a porthole for a window and two bunks, but what the lodging lacked in amenities, it more than made up for in location and ambience.
