Hostels are a great alternative in Sweden. They are clean and usually comfortable and whilst you sleep in a bunk room if you come alone, there are rarely any huge dormitories but rooms are smaller. You can also stay in "family rooms" if you bring children and lately, some have even installed double beds for couples in small rooms.
All hostels vary in appearance otherwise. From city apartment blocks to former prisons and old ships via picturesque wooden farm houses in the countryside.
There are two main hostel chains. The Swedish Touring Club - STF - is the oldest, and the one attached to IYHA so you can present your membership card. STF also runs the fell stations in the Swedish highlands which range from the smallest shelter on a hilltop to all mod cons sports complexes with restaurants below it. Read more at www.stfturist.se
The alternative is the newcomer SVIF which nowadays has quite a few hostels under its wings. People who for one reason or other never found their place with STF and their rules and policies. You find many independent city hostels in Stockholm, Gýteborg and Malmý here but also several in the pure countryside. www.svif.se
