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

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.

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

I stayed three nights on the boat and was very comfortable. A great place to experience a spectacular thunderstorm from! (Boat very stable, no concern at all.) The staff were welcoming and friendly, even when I turned up straight off the Finland ferry at 6:30am on a Sunday. I was able to leave my pack and go off exploring until... More

Booked with STF because they were the only place available. I was in another hostel, Castenea in Gamla Stan (highly recommended) and tried to get a hold of STF. Despite '24 hour' reception it took 24 hours for a response to email.

The island has a great view on old town and is in the middle of all local attractions. 24 hour reception, clean rooms, bed linen is of Scandinavian white color. There is a kitchen and tables, so you cam make yourself a nice porridge for... More

While two friends and I were in the south of Sweden, our friend we were going to stay with in Stockholm told us that he had to cancel, so we located somewhere to stay and booked this place at the last minute. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We stayed here for two nights, then travelled north to the... More
