Absolutely fabulous! Went here with my erasmus friends from all over the world and we had a blast! Super exciting experience, sleeping in this well-known symbol of Stockholm that can be seen on every second postcard! The botel is super clean, quiet, wifi working just fine. Loved it.

Living on a boat is a thing that cannot be measured - it's awesome! Only can guess, how awesome could it be in summer with all the tourists gathering around :) very cosy, neat and clean inside the ship, very helpful and friendly staff on the land! Not far from the city center. But I was a little disappointed that... More

With a group of five friends, we booked a room in this hostel. The view from our room, straight onto the idyllically lit harbor and royal castle were a wonderful addition. Beds are good enough, shower & wc shared (to be expected in a hostel). But this doesn't matter as we only sleep there.

When you get near you don't imagine that such boat is a youth hostel... Fantastic and original place to sleep, really cheap for such hostel... Inside cabins and wooden deck gives way to the imagination for great naval bedtime stories... and the wake up with a great view on Stockholm through the small round window of the cabin deserves to...

Did you ever expect to stay in the herat of Stockholm right opposite to the royal palace on an old sailing ship for a resonable price? It is possible! A wonderful experience! Just walking distance from the city center and the old town. The breakfast was a little simple, but the room was more than ok for hostel standard. The... More

We booked this hostel for a night, really just wanting to stay on the Af Chapman itself, but the rooms on the ship are on a first come, first served basis, which means we ended up in the main building (which used to be a Navy Training Barracks, so still kinda cool). Clean, but basic, not the best hostel we've... More

Different and comfortable experience. The location is perfect to getting around interest spots. The beds are comfortable and clean, nice bathrooms and clean sheets and towel included. The people at the reception were really nice and helpful.

STF Chapman is located really close to the city center - from the boat deck you can actually look at the Castle. I loved my stay there in a 4 persons mixed cabin, the feeling on that boat is an absolute georgous experience. I never slept on a boat before and I totally recommend it to everyone at least for...

Only stayed here one night, but I would definitely recommend it for the experience of sleeping on a beautiful boat. Another plus is that it's very easy to find! You can spot it from super far away. The service was nice, they arranged a cab to come pick us up at 3 or 4 am and gave us recommendations for... More

I heard about the ship a year ago while travelling in Guatemala and decided i'll sleep there while visiting Sweden next year. It was great. I took the dorm on the boat itself. the guests we'r great. and I also enjoyed their breakfasts.
