“Guests at this hotel-hostel, in a former prison on Långholmen island, sleep on bunks in a cell, with either shared or private baths. Hotel-standard rooms are also in cells but spruced up with textured wall coverings and mod fixtures.”
“This former prison morphed into a combined hotel and hostel when the inmates were moved elsewhere in 1975. Hjalmar Branting, Sweden’s first working-class prime minister, spent three months behind bars here in 1889 for denying God and the afterlife.”
