Cosy and living place full of romantic nautical atmosphere for more than a reasonable price. Low-budget living is not easy to find in Stockholm and I'm happy we've found this beauty.

I really loved the under-deck layout and decorations!!

It's not as noisy as some complain here or we were just lucky with the room selection. Staff was helpful, English speaking (expect nothing less in Sweden) and friendly. Located near Gamla stan, it's perfectly fitted for a stay.

A recommendation must go to the breakfast as well. In my experience in a low-budget places you should always expect rater less than more, but the breakfast here was delicious, plentiful and the food variety and quality was much more than one can expect in a hostel.

I can't help myself, but I have a thing for boats, and sleeping in one is a child's dream come true, so I'm giving +1 extra star to the rating.

Thi is located in south but only two stop of the Tube from central station. Is not so expensive but consider to have private cabin respect to go to sleep in dorm
A very good breakfast you can have wit wifi connection for scheduling your day. bath sowers and room are clean and people friendly. no electricity in cabin so you have to go in the dock for charge your smartphone.

I would stay here again because of the location and it's really good for a "hostel". I walked from the central train station with a pack and it took about 20 minutes. It's only a very short walk from both Gamla Stan and from the heart of Sodermalm and the metro. Thomas on the reception desk was very friendly and helpful. I booked into a mixed dorm but as there was a couple in there and they weren't full, Thomas put me in a twin bunk room on my own which was lovely. It was clean and warm. I slept well as it's not a party place but in the morning you can hear everyone through the very thin walls. Even though you're on a busy road you don't hear traffic noise as the cabins are low down. I would definitely stay again.

I had a great stay in January. The Red Boat is convenient to the old town area and to transit. The staff was great and the accommodations nice. Although the weather was cold, the rooms were snug. Being right on the water made waking up and looking out the porthole a great experience. You could see the spires of the churches and city hall in the morning light.

We had a lovely stay here, although it was bunk beds which wasn't very romantic it was a unique stay! The breakfast was nice, continental with a good choice, and the views over the water where beautiful at night! HOWEVER on the first night we had a room on the land side which was the worst night sleep! The water lapping was ok - it added character, but there was a very drunk and annoying bloke out side shouting from 4am - 6am which was unbearable! Although this wasn't the hostels fault they staff where really helpful and let us move to the other side of the boat with views over the water.. this was the fantastic as the views where lovely, and made up for the night before!
If your looking for a interesting hostel, then I would definitely recommend!!
