Other places to stay

Since we can't stay updated on what other hotels have vacancies for the dates of the conference, we recommend using an online booking site if you want or need to stay somewhere other than Kom Hotel. The booking sites have rating systems, but it may also be helpful to know that hostels belonging to STF (The Swedish Tourist Association) tend to keep a good standard.
