For its price, a stay at the STF AF Skeppsholmen house is a pretty good deal. It's certainly no-frills. You put the sheets on the bed yourself, for example. But the location is good and the staff is friendly. A great choice for young people on a budget.

I stayed at STF AF Skeppsholmen, which is the building, not the ship, but they're both represented under the name Chapman here, so here we go. (+) The hostel is located on the beautiful Skeppsholmen, very close to all tourist attractions in central Stockholm. The hostel, the rooms and the bathrooms were all very clean. The personnel was friendly. My... More

We are currently staying 3 for nights on the boat. It is an unusual experience to be staying on a boat docked at the heart of the city. Atmosphere is nice, staff is friendly and the place is clean. It is also possible to eat or have a drink on the upper open deck. Breakfast buffet is served at main... More

Aside from the absolute delight of sleeping on this awesome vessel in a beautiful part of Stockholm, staying at this hostel was an absolutely privilege and pleasure. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful---always available. The hostel operation is extremely well organized. There is a small café connected to this establishment and a kitchen facility for guests---all in addition to the... More

I have stayed at this hostel a number of times over the last years. It my be a hostel but at a Swedish level, very, very, clean. I always pay for the breakfast as it is very filling and at a reasonable price. The Af Chapman is an easy walk to all the tourist places in Stockholm. So if your... More

The hostel was very clean and welcoming. At first I was a bit worried for the shared toilet and showers but it was clean and felt private! The breakfast was really good and it felt like we were part of a community because everyone was talking to each other and sitting with each other. The rooms have a lot of... More

Upon arriving at the Af Chapman site, we were overjoyed at the unbeatable location, centrally located and over looking the water; but most importantly close to one of the many bike hire depots. Our good fortune continued upon entering reception. Checking in was a quick painless task carried out by good looking reception staff. After subsequent visits to reception however,... More

I could say staying in this place was my best thing in Sweden! The view of the old town from the boat was the best, especially during sunset time. The boat, above my expectation, was quite comfortable. The room was spacious and it was no shaking! The island is a quite island with some museums. Transportation maybe less inconvenient, but...

Stayed for a night at the 6 bed dorm on the Chapman ship which was definitely one of the most memorable hostel stays in my life. The room was small and really dark (but that's what you can expect from a small round porthole). Though the view from this "window" was stunning! The hostel-ship is located on the one of... More
