Stockholm has so many interesting and exciting things to do and places to see that it’s easy to come for a holiday and forget anything else exists. Unfortunately, life doesn’t just stop and sometimes you need a place to check your emails, scan important documents, or even a temporary office where you can spend the day working.
While Stockholm is incredibly well connected with Wi-Fi across the city sometimes you need a computer or a printer for specific tasks. There is a range of useful options for different needs, so this list includes places to use a computer, spaces for gamers looking to play, and sites to print documents, as well as temporary office space where you can hunker down for the day and get some work done while enjoying a drink.
The Stockholm central library has a number of computers that you can drop in and use for a short time. You need to get a library card, but they are very easy to sign up for when you are there and do not cost anything to use (just remember to bring some ID.) If you need a computer for longer than half an hour you can always book one for a specific time. The staff working at the information desk speak excellent English and can help you with any issues and advise you about other library services. There is also a printer and a scanner for use as well as a café within the library to grab a coffee or a snack.
If you need to print a boarding pass, scan a document or make copies of something then Sodermalms Snabbkopiering is one of the best places to go in the city. The staff are friendly, helpful, and professional as well as incredibly efficient if you are in a rush and need to get something printed quickly. While it is technically not a café, it is in a part of Sodermalm, which is surrounded by excellent coffee shops, so you can drop something off at the copy shop and pick up a drink while you wait.

Inferno is set up for gamers. It is one of the largest gaming cafés in the world, with a number of high powered computers to play all manner of titles.

It is open from 10 a.m. until midnight on weekdays and even has overnight sessions on the weekends. At only 100kr for five hours it is also good value.

Another option in Stockholm is to rent a laptop for a short period of time and take it to any café of your choice. If you are traveling light or at short notice and need a computer you can take with you, rather than being tethered to an internet café, then this might be the best option for you. Both Digital Inn and Macrent do short term rentals and have tablets as well as laptops if you want something small.
Another spacious library, Kungsholmens bibliotekscafe has five drop in and five bookable computers that are free to use with a library card. The café is a cozy space with a good selection of food and drink. It is the third most visited library in Stockholm, with very knowledgeable staff and is in the Kungsholmen neighborhood. This is one of the prettiest parts of Stockholm and very easy to access by t-bana or bus. The library is right next to Kronobergsparken, a lovely park that is a great place to relax in summer.
