I stayed with my mother in the private room with two beds for three nights in the building next to the ship. The room was tiny but the view from the window was really nice. We were surprised that cleaning was not included in the price of our stay. One should clean the room himself or pay 100 SEK per person. It was also a little bit noisy both inside the hostel and outside the building but in order to keep fresh air in the small room we had to keep window open.
I liked the really nice and soft bedlinen that were provided, friendliness of staff and the location but probably I'll try another hostel next time I visit Stockholm.

I would 100% recommend this hostel! However you must book early to get a room on the boat vs the building on land. The boat is very cool, newly renovated and clean with lots of washrooms and showers and the linen they provide is really comfy! Excellent location and you can walk here from the central train station. It isn't "close" but I managed easy enough! Great to carve out this experience in a nice green space!

This hostel has really great location in the middle of Stockholm. From my window I could see Gamla Stan (old city center). The island where it is located is also nice for a walk. I come from country with no access to sea so I also really liked that the sea was like 20meters from the hostel. Stuff was very friendly and they also helped us to find what is interesting for tourists. I would deffinatelly come again.

We enjoyed three nights on the ship and totally loved it. It's really cool to sleep on a boat in the center of the city! We found the rooms to be comfortable and very clean. The bathrooms were clean and exactly what you'd expect for a hostel--no bad surprises! The staff was super helpful and you can get a city bike card right at the front desk. There's a bike station just right across the street from the hostel, so it's super easy to come and go from different points in Stockholm. The boat deck is a bar in the afternoon and evening which is really cool. You can enjoy a drink while taking in the beautiful skyline of Stockholm. You have to rent sheets and towels and make your own bed (no big deal). The room was comfortable, bunk beds, sink, closet and desk with two porthole windows. Obviously if you're staying in a hostel, you know what to expect. AF Chapman is definitely a higher end hostel and the experience is unmatched.

Gorgeous panoramas from the ship of Stockholm and of the ship from Gamla Stan place the Af Chapman in an enviable position. It was great to walk to and from attractions, some of which are on the Island where Af Chapman is docked. The breakfast was great, served buffet style in the house with some good Swedish elements. The ship is very clean and roomy.
There were families, solo travellers and couples and the accommodation seemed to suit everyone. Not sure I would stay again, but for the novelty and location factors it was great. Book early!
