Stayed in room 9. Room had a bunkbed that supplied sheets, blanket and pillow. If you want towels you will need to purchase at service desk. Staff was great and very helpful. The place was very clean and neat. In addition, the boat was very quiet during the day and at night. I would highly recommend this place and I... More

I'm in my mid-30s and traveled alone. I got a single room in the hostel and found it to be cozy, comfortable, and quiet. The bathroom was right down the hall and I had a beautiful view of the city from my window. Room included a small desk and nightstand as well as hooks for hanging clothes/coat, etc. I would... More

We went for my birthday for a week in winter and had a spectacular time. The cabins were comfy and cosy and really warm. The bar area was pretty active and the staff were fantastic and really helpful in every possible way (if you're reading this I'm sorry my review is a bit late guys). It's a hostel with cheap...

I thought this hostel was very average and exactly as advertised. I didn't rate very good or excellent for the following: 1) wifi wasn't working during my stay, 2) the hostel wasn't very lively. With that said, the staff was very friendly, the hostel was clean, and let's be honest... It was on a boat!

Great place! Staff is very kind and fun, everything is clean and IT'S A BOAT! How cool is that?! We chilled on the deck in the sun, was lulled to sleep by the slight swaying of the boat at night, and woke to the sound of rain hitting the water just outside our window. There's no wifi in the rooms,... More

(+) 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
