(+) The staff was friendly, and available even at late night. The cabin was small but clean and my bed quite comfortable. The bathroom, although a bit worn off, was reasonably clean. (-) There was no washbasin in the toilets so I had to enter the ladies' bathroom just to wash my hands and brush my teeth. I don't really... More

Looks small from outside but when inside its very warm and cosy. 2 of us stayed for 2 nights to watch the UFC in January 2015. Very basic but the price is good compared to other hotels in the city. Free wifi was a bonus and the staff were nice and helpful.

The location was great for the city and very pretty in terms of scenery. The hostel was cheap and perfect for a two night stay. We were in Stockholm to see an AIK match and the staff helped us a little with getting to the ground. The rooms were small, and it did get stuffy, yet the price was so... More

Very cosy hostel. Small outdoor deck to relax. Showers very clean. Excellent value for money if you just want to have a place to sleep. Short and scenic walk to Gamla Stan (old town). Breakfast is adequate.

The rooms pictured on the website and travel booking sites are nothing like the rooms on the boat. The room was smaller than my freshman year dorm room (a dorm that was rated the worst in America). It got hot and stuffy when the heat came on, and the walls were paper thin. For it being a hostel, guests should... More

Stayed here for a weekend in the beginning of November'14 in a twin room with a friend. Gorgeous view towards Gamla Stan, surprisingly warm in the room, cool atmosphere and totally something different to try for a place to stay at. In our part of a boat there were only 2 private bathrooms in a corridor, but never encountered a... More

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
