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

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.
