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

My first time in a hostel. A really nice place with more than enough utilities to satisfy travellers. Very clean very cool place and it's on a boat so how cool is that. Staff was super friendly and easy to communicate with. Definitely recommend to budget traveller.

We stayed on shore - not on the boat. We had a great experience so I give them high marks. Room 109 is a double and was ideal for two. The room is small but has high ceilings and a large window that opens, a postcard view of Old Town, a sink, and two very comfy beds with clean fragrence... More

This budget accomodation, Hostel Af Chapman, was wonderful! With a view of the entire town across the water, museums close by, and the city center of Stockholm within walking distance. Still quiet, idyllic and clean. There were single rooms and shared rooms. Showers were in the common hallway, but very, very, neatly kept. Stylishly decorated, modern meets cozy. Great beds... More

I went there with a couple of friends, it was so lovely, rooms are big and bathrooms are clean. Very funny to stay in, I suggest it to everybody, from young guys to business men. During the nights water calms you down.

My friend and I had a very pleasant stay at this hostel. We were in the 17-bed dorm room in the building next to the boat and we were thoroughly impressed. It was quiet and dark in the room when appropriate and although the breakfast was not included, it was only 80 SEK and there were a lot of options.... More

Our group is staying at af Chapman for a total of 12 days, which is a pretty good deal for a hostel...lower mainentance guests, for sure. We are on the ship currently, moving to the building on land for a few days, as well. The ship is clean, rooms are clean as are the plentiful bathrooms. Breakfast is hearty and... More
