Scandinavian hostels look better than many hotels do in other parts of the world, and this one is no exception. Guestrooms have shiny wood floors, solid unswaying bunkbeds with good matresses, and pieces of retro furniture, for added style. The communal kitchen is large and always clean (as are the many spacious bathrooms); the hostel rents skates and bikes; and the on-site sauna is free for several hours each day. Being the closest hostel to the train station, Backpackers is the first choice for many young travelers from foreign lands. You'll meet them at one of the nightly events, which range from pub crawls to trivia contests. Choose between cheap dorms if you like snoring, or private rooms if you have the added cash. Amenities include a laundry room, flat-screen TVs, movie nights, and free Wi-Fi.
