The place is pretty big and well kept. Rooms are spacious and clean, there are many toilets and showers and I always found them clean. You get clean sheets and a towel, which is very good. There's no kitchen. The location is great as it is in Skeppsholmen (20 min walk from Central Station and 10 from Gamla Stan) and...

The stay in Hostel af Chapman was quirky and fun. The hostel is a ship and we stayed in a 2 person room (the beds were bunk beds). The room wasn't particularly big but it was more than enough - just like a ship cabin. There was a small window and a sink. The bathrooms/toilets were shared and were well...

We stayed here as a group for a weekend for a friends birthday. The boat was easy to get to from Arlanda airport. It was within walking distance to old town, shops and restaurants. It was -8 degrees when we visited Stockholm and the boat was warm & comfortable. Also in the main building there was a great vibe and...

Unfortunately i found the service of this hostel is very negative, especially their people. I can't believe this is how they treat their future customers. We even haven't stayed any night and just had some questions that we hope we could get some response. They were very passive to answer our emails and reluctant to offer help. What annoyed us...

Dear Tizzy, It makes me so sad to read about your stay. We are very proud of our product and service is off course the most important thing that we can offer. I would be grateful if you would contact me at sofie.jorsell@stfturist.se as I would like to know more and take action so that this will not happen again....

Although Af Chapman is a hostel they have two cabins that serves as double hotel rooms with en suite bathrooms. My friend and I stayed in one of them, the Navigation Cabin in the former chart room on the upper deck of the ship. The view was magnificent and the location fantastic. I highly recommend it to anyone fit enough...

We had prepaid for 2 nights, but our Seattle-Stockholm flight returned to Seattle after 2 hours due to technical reasons. We could leave Seattle only the after 2 days and had to skip Stockholm altogether. We gave this information (and documentation) to the hostel immediately after our flight came back to Seattle and requested a refund, but they refused. They...

This was an amazing find. It is a preserved 19th Century sailing ship which has been turned into a youth hostel. The ship was renovated in 2008, so is still nice. It is fantastically clean too. It makes a visit to Stockholm atmospheric and is 10 minutes walk to the Palace and Gamala Stan area. We had a 4-berth cabinon...

Stayed here with friends on a schooltrip. The boat is closed during the cold months of the year so we got a small dorm in the main building. The dorm was light and spacious enough for the three of us. The shared toilets and showers were clean. We had a sink and a mirror in our dorm which was a...
