My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights. It is centrally located, and staying on a boat with a great view is nice! We appreicated the large room and the tub in the private bathroom. We didn't love that everyone used the deck above our cabin to smoke, even though it's listed as a non-smoking vessel (It is a... More

This is a hostel. Not a hotel. Its important to remember this so you manage your expectations. The rooms are basic but nice and the bathrooms are clean. It is damn cool staying on a boat in the middle of Stockholm and when the weather is good there is no better place to chill out than on the upper deck.... More

This is a very special hostel! Staying on an old ship is, of course, the main experience. The ship is docked in a perfect place with an amazing view. Just sitting on a deck sipping a drink is a pleasure. The facilities are clean and there are plenty of toilets and showers, so there were no queues. I would recomment... More

Me and my partner stayed in a 6 bed dorm for 2 nights, our stay was very enjoyable and it was such a unique experience. The boat is stable and sat on something to hold it, so it doesn't sway at all. You have to check in, in the house opposite where you can store your luggage if you arrive... More

Came to the hostel with my partner and stayed in a dorm on the ship. Everything was good and to be honest we really enjoyed our first night. Our second night (2nd of July) was where things went really wrong. I took a shower on the ship and within the first 2 mins it stopped working. So I went up... More

I had booked there as I had already positively heard about it. I stayed on the boat for 5 days. The staff is very kind, the service is fine, the bedroom and facilities are comfy, clean and perfect for any journey in Stockholm. I'll thus be back in Sept. with other colleagues. Top notch Hostel for anyone looking for some... More

There are two parts of this Hostel the main building and the boat. I was on the boat. It is a great experience to say you have stayed on a clipper ship. The boat has been nicely upgraded to accommodate travelers. There is not a shortage of bathrooms and showers. The rooms are what you would expect for a hostel.... More

This hostel lies situated in the central of Stockholm within walking distance from most attractions in Stockholm. We staid in a four bed cabin on the boat. The rooms on the boat are cabins and you sleep in bunk beds. There are no toilets in the room but you have water and plenty of closets. This is a hostel so... More

Great city view and central. Take max. six bed room. Especially the boat cabins are worth the small extra. However if you choose their cheapest offer be aware it is more like a camp with approx. 20 beds (strange/r people; recommended for men only). Bring earplugs and kind of an open attitude with you. Summary: It is perfect at the... More
