Zinkensdam Hostel: Quality hostel in a park
We stayed with 4 people in one room. So we had the whole room for ourselves. It's not very large. For each bed there is a locker in the room with your own key. Toilets and showers are shared.
You can reach the location with the tube. ( 10 minutes from central station) The tube-station is Zinkensdamm.
+ beautiful spot in the park
+ not far from Gamla Stan
+ clean and rather new building
+ all night reception desk
+ friendly atmosphere and service
- shared toilets and showers
- breakfast not included. (available at extra price)
+/- simple but convenient bar / restaurant for a small dish.

Silja Serende/Symphony: Not really a hotel
Every time we go to Stockholm,we sleep at ferry.Silja Line-ships are like little town on the water.They go from Helsinki to Stockholm all the time.You can sleep on nice cabin,eat well at ship restaurants and next morning you are at Helsinki or Stockholm-and you can buy tax-free sweets and wines and so on.
We try to get a Silja-cabin,as on photo,but prices vary,and sometimes we have Promenade or Seaside-cabins,witch are nice too.Silja cabin is bigger,and has free drinks(coupple of beers,coupple of long drinks,coupple of small cava-bottles and something to taste-like 2cl gin-bottles or like that),othervice the others are good too.Seaside has a view to sea,and Promenade has view to ships promenade,witch is whole boat high space,with shops and restaurants on it.
You have everything at boat-a spa,a sauna,hairdressers,gym,cinema etc..For the price witch is cheaper than hotels that have the same.They have all kinds of offers,so we have never paid the real price-usually around 100-200e for two nights at doubble-cabin,including one day at destination.
At Silja-cabins you get a better breakfast at same price-there´s even parkling wine at breakfast-usually we don´t take it-it feels strange at morning.

Noréns Malmgård: Affordable With Great View!
A good friend´s parents always stay at Noréns malmgård, with one of Stockholms most beautiful views and close to good bars and restaurants. Södermalm. It´s a bit too far to walk to the city centre, but with the red metro line you´ll get there fast. 750 kr a night for a single room and about 1000 skr for a double. Closest metro is Zinkensdamm. You can walk to Slussen from here, along Hornsgatan. There are lots of restaurants and small shops on the way, especially in the end of Hornsgatan where you can find high quality handicraft (jewellery, silverwork, glass, cheramics…) and cafés.
Beautifully situated in a nice, down-to earth area, next to a park viewing the City Hall across Lake Riddarfjärden

The guestroom B&B: Versatile B&B agency
Since I live in Stockholm, accomodation is not the part where I can contribute most. But, I "stole" this tip, or rather, answer from the Stockholm forum. It would be a shame if it got lost. I find it the best agency I´ve ever spotted on the internet, concerning Stockholm.
Doombert posed the question of short-term (3 days) apartment housing and found this site himself. I quote:
"Well after hours and hours of online searching and countless email requests i finally found something suitable at guestroom.se, if anyone's interested. Great prices, and the place looks cosy and nicely placed too."
I checked the homepage and the adresses are good as far as I can see the guestrooms are located in nice areas. For interiors and service it seem to vary a bit but the basic level looks good as well. That may be a good thing for budget travellers and others, since you often (but not always) pay for what you get.
Homepage in English
What is good is that you can rent apartments for three days, not only for a whole week.
Adresses (haven´t checked them all :-) but anyways) in good areas on nice adresses.
I get a homely feel from the presentations, a good start for a stay in Stockholm.

Lodge 32: Stockholm Budget Hostel
Lodge 32 was a nice hostel. Stayed in a six bunk dorm for two nights and it was very comfortable. (Pity about the snoring guy in the bunk above me the first night but that's hardly the hostel's fault!!!) Nice hot showers available 24 hours. Didn't actually notice if the hostel had cooking facilities and didn't ask but I don't think there was. There is a communal area but it was small.
Security is very good with a key code needed to enter the hostel at night. The code is changed every day and you are given the codes for ech day of your stay.
The staff were really helpful and friendly and went out of their way to help. Needed to print off something urgently from the computer and they let me use their office printer.
The hostel is fifteen minutes walk to the old town or there is a bus stop right outside the door and a t-bahn station just around the corner. Very good links to the city transport from this hostel.
There is free internet for all guests on site which is very useful but it resets after 15 minutes which is a bit annoying.
Note that linen is not included in the price and costs an extra five euro to rent but you can bring your own. Sleeping bags are not allowed.

Lodge 32: Nice Hostel
Lodge 32 is a nice small hostel loacated in a quiet neighbourhood just a 10-minute walk from the Central Station.
Rooms are not too big and basic with comfy beds and individual lockers. You can bring your own sheets or rent them.
There are plenty of clean bathrooms and a small kitchen.
Reception staff is very friendly and helpful.
Certainly would stay here again.

Bostad Direkt: For those who want to rent in Stockholm
Those looking for short- or longer term rentals (sublets!) in Stockholm (or other areas) and have a smattering of Swedish may find the website bostaddirektDOTcom very interesting. It has rooms, apartments, houses and holiday accommodation. You have to register, but in some cases it is also possible to negotiate directly with the tenant.

Silja Line: Sleep on the cruise ship to Helsinki!
One of the least expensive ways to sleep in Scandinavia is to take advantage of the overnight cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki. If you book a cabin below car deck, you can really save money and have a great cruise. The best deal is to book "roundtrip," in which you get the same cabin for 2 consecutive nights, plus you get to tour Helsinki for 8 hours before the ship sails again. For a cabin that sleeps up to 4, the cost can be as low as SEK 1800. That's TOTAL. For BOTH NIGHTS.
In addition, Eurail and Scanrail holders can get steep discounts. In fact, for 4 passholders staying in the same cabin, passage is free. Note: Eurail Flexipass holders need to use a flexi day to get the fare.
Another cruise line, Viking, offers nearly identical deals. The main differences are that Viking offers deck passage and does not offer discounts for railpass holders.
- Enjoy a wonderful cruise ship with all of the amenities for a very low price
- Magnificent buffet breakfasts and dinners (cost extra, highly recommended)
- Tremendous island views after 8PM enroute to Helsinki
- Countless bars, pubs, clubs, shops, and other distractions

In Sky City at Arlanda airport: Arlanda Airport in small cabins.
Well, I have never been here. I just read it in a Swedish travelling paper (Allt om resor nr 13 2005). it is called "rest and fly". The company Pite Havsbad has started this and it shall be a place where you can sleep some hours if you have an early morning flight. In January 2006 you can do it. They never mentioned what price should be.

To hostel or not to hostel
The first night I stayed in a hostel on a boat. It was like any hostel, just on a boat, so it cost a bit more. The second night I got a hotel for not much more in price, but a lot more in accomodations.

Bed & Breakfast Service Stockolm: Stockholm B&B
We left it late to book our Stockholm accommodation so budget options were limited by the time we got around to it. We used http://www.bedbreakfast.a.se/ , an excellent B&B service, which matches travellers with host families. They found us a place in Gardet, three stops on the metro from Central Station. The room was fine, breakfast was excellent and it cost 300 SEK per night for a double room including breakfast.

Private Bed and Breakfast
In May 2004 I stayed 6 nights in a single room of a private Bed and Breakfast accommodation, which I had booked in advance through an internet agency. Communication with both the agency and the owner of the B&B was smooth.
My room was on the 8th floor of a residential high-rise building and included a single bed, a small desk and a TV set. I also had my own lavatory, wheras a shower and sauna were available on a different floor of the building.
The price was 300 SEK/night and a 20 % down payment had to be made to the agency. Breakfast cost an extra of 35 SEK.
