Only stayed here one night, but I would definitely recommend it for the experience of sleeping on a beautiful boat. Another plus is that it's very easy to find! You can spot it from super far away. The service was nice, they arranged a cab to come pick us up at 3 or 4 am and gave us recommendations for...

I heard about the ship a year ago while travelling in Guatemala and decided i'll sleep there while visiting Sweden next year. It was great. I took the dorm on the boat itself. the guests we'r great. and I also enjoyed their breakfasts.

The first 2 nights on the boat were not so good. Room 8 was very small and cramped. What was more annoying was the noise. Our room was in the middle of the boat. There were showers directly beside our room, and toilet blocks and more showers nearby, which resulted in lots of traffic during the night. The timber floors...

Stayed on the ship in a private room (bunk bed). Room was small but adequate and the beds were comfortable. Amenities were kept clean considering the number of guest. Breakfast was nice but there are also plenty of restaurants a short walk away. About 10-15 mins to the old town. Can be a bit noisy on the boat in the...

Great rooms, brilliant stay. So cool that youre on a boat. Plenty of atmosphere and great views over the water. Lovely rooms, plenty clean and value for money. Greta location. Lots of shower rooms so no need to wait. All sorts of people staying, young-old. Brilliant stay, would highly recommend.

For its price, a stay at the STF AF Skeppsholmen house is a pretty good deal. It's certainly no-frills. You put the sheets on the bed yourself, for example. But the location is good and the staff is friendly. A great choice for young people on a budget.

I stayed at STF AF Skeppsholmen, which is the building, not the ship, but they're both represented under the name Chapman here, so here we go. (+) The hostel is located on the beautiful Skeppsholmen, very close to all tourist attractions in central Stockholm. The hostel, the rooms and the bathrooms were all very clean. The personnel was friendly. My...

We are currently staying 3 for nights on the boat. It is an unusual experience to be staying on a boat docked at the heart of the city. Atmosphere is nice, staff is friendly and the place is clean. It is also possible to eat or have a drink on the upper open deck. Breakfast buffet is served at main...

Aside from the absolute delight of sleeping on this awesome vessel in a beautiful part of Stockholm, staying at this hostel was an absolutely privilege and pleasure. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful---always available. The hostel operation is extremely well organized. There is a small café connected to this establishment and a kitchen facility for guests---all in addition to the...
