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

The af Chapman is sort of aninstitution in Stockholm, being immediately across from Gamla Stan and on the same peninsula as the art museum, Vasa museum and several other very nice parks. Nice walks to things like Sveavagen or Gamla Stan, etc. There are two "hostels".mone on the ship, and one on shore. I've stayed in both. The ship is... More

English: Convenient location, prices slightly expensive, but average. Above all very nice place. The rooms are in the ship, and are furnished as true cabins, complete with portholes. Bathrooms are shared, but very clean and close to the rooms. Really very nice. Italiano: Posizione comoda, prezzi leggermente cari ma nella media, ma soprattutto molto bello. Le camere sono nella nave,... More

Took the kids there for a city break. Could walk everywhere from the boat which was great. We stayed on the boat which was cool. The kids loved it. It was cool to look out of the porthole and see the castle The breakfast was even OK for a hostel.

Stayed here based on a recommendation of a Swedish friend. It's very centrally located, youll love it. Close to the Grand hotel, the Vassa museum, the ABBA museum (both a short ferry ride away). A short walk from the Museum of Modern Art...a 10 minute or so walk from the subway. Restaurants are further out as this hostel is on... More

We spent 3 nights here, one of them onboard the ship. And that is a really cool service at this hostel, you can sleep on board a historic sailing ship, relax on deck in a deck chair and enjoy the view over the fjord. The cabin standard is good, no luxury, but comfortable beds and modern bathrooms. The best thing... More

This was the fourth time I was staying in the hostel. The location is simply superb. It is not too far from Stockholm Central ( 15 minutes of pleasant walk ). The only real meal available is breakfast and it is really good. Surrounded by museums, bus stop close by, if you are traveling with heavy luggage, and the lake... More
