The staff was very helpful, the rooms are on the smaller side, but that is to be expected because it's a boat. Great ambiance, clean, had a great experience. Bathrooms are also clean, was slightly annoying carrying two large bags through the small corridors, but definitely worth it.

It took me ages to find this at night, even following instructions, so be aware of this. I stayed in a ten bed dorm which was nice, it was reasonably spacious so doesn't feel like you're all lying on top of one another. The four bed dorms were pretty small - just enough room for the beds and not much... More

The staff were really helpful on several occasions. The floating hostels and hotels were in a wonderful location - close enough to access the old town, city central and Södermalm. The interior of the bar and dining room are in a vintage style and have a nice ambience. My only criticisms would be that there are no lockers available and... More

Stayed here with a group of friends and it was great! Prefect location right in the middle of stockholm with amazing views over the old city and river. Room did the job as it was clean and comfortable. The whole place was very clean and staff very friendly and due to all this I would highly recommend it.

My husband and I stayed in a twin room at The Red Boat for two nights. The location of the hostel is very good, within walking distance of Gamla Stan (Old Town) and the hip SoFo area. It is a bit of a walk to the Gamla Stan metro station with baggage, but doable. It’s easy to find if you... More

There are two boats. We stayed in the silent boat, still because of drunk neighbours could not sleep all night. View is amazing, I would watch the city all day, night. Breakfast was delicious. Prices are also ok, it is 15 min. walks from the Gamla Stan metro station with your baggage.

The hotel/hostel is actually 2 boats. The 2nd boat next door is quite plain in comparison to the red boat itself. Rooms are ok, small cabins but clean and comfortable. Shared bathrooms also nice and clean. You can hear pretty much everything from other rooms but they operate a no noise policy after 10pm. Its a great location, 10 mins... More

This nice hotel is in a strategic position near the subway station. Being on a boat it is very characteristic in its kind, after sleeping some days on it you will have a funny sensation when being on the land. The rooms are quite essential and the hotel is cheap. Some services could be better, the lower bathroom sometimes is... More

We stayed for 2 nights in January. What a unique and different place to stay. You can stay in a rectangular hotel room anytime but when do you have the chance to stay in a boat overlooking Gamla Stan? We took the T and walked over the bridge to the boat from Gamla Stan. The rooms are small and clean... More
