Where I Stayed: City Hostel
- You can find more information about the hostel on their website. I opted to stay in a female dorm which I normally do. I really enjoyed the amenities that were provided…large & spacious kitchen, games & books in the common area, a computer lounge, and the staff was extremely helpful in guiding us in the right direction! My only complaint is that the hostel did not have 24 hour reception and I didn’t feel completely safe knowing there wasn’t someone at the first desk.
Where I ate: Okay, don’t judge me BUT I actually only ate Asian food all weekend. I don’t know why but I was really craving it! In general, I would recommend trying local food which consists mostly of meat. I couldn’t eat most of these dishes because I’m vegetarian. That being said, I ate at:
- Koh Phangan – Outstanding curry and fun atmosphere
- Noni Sushi
What I Did:
- Walked EVERYWHERE! (literally 12 miles in one day)
- Toured the Royal Palace
- Saw a bird’s eye view of the city for FREE at Fjallgatan
- Visited Skansen, a replica of life in the olden days of Stockholm…similar to Colonial Williamsburg
- Visited City Hall where the Nobel Peace Prizes are awarded
- Took a boat ride across one of the main canal
What To Be Prepared For:
- Stockholm is an EXTREMELY expensive city so budget a minimum of 10 dollars for breakfast and 40 dollars for lunch and dinner
- If you are visiting in the winter, wear as many layers as possible as the temperatures were below 30 degrees with wind!
