The Hostel is very big. I would say that their breakfast is top. Staff is also very friendly and ready to help anytime with all details you may need regarding the city. The kitchen is well equipped. I did not stay on the Ship, it was fully booked. Some toilets are very small and the top floor there's only one...

Stayed here for two nights on a trip around Scandinavia - would have stayed longer, but was full (probably because it's so lovely!). Staff were always very polite and super helpful - good knowledge, provision of maps etc. I particularly appreciated the use of hairdryer for a deposit, a rare thing in a lot of these hostels. Rooms all very...

This is a hostel type lodging. Good prices and the location smack in the middle of Stockholm is hard to beat. Either in the house or, as we ded, bunk on the full rigged steel ship. (You kan actually wave at the Royal Palace from the ship) We bunked 3 women in a 6-bunk room. Note: the bunk rooms are...

Super cool spot to grab a couple of beers. At first glance we assumed that it was going to be pricey because it is on a docked boat with a beautiful view of Stockholm. The beers cost around 79kr. Pretty average for Stockholm. There are multiple spots to sit on the deck. It is also a hostel, which is pretty...

For starters you are staying on a boat! We had a 2 person room with bunk beds. The beds were very comfortable, the room was big and it even had a porthole! There are shared bathrooms, but don't let that put you off. There are loads of toilets and showers so you never have to wait. The showers were hot...

So we turned up at 2am not realising we were staying on a boat! Great staff that gave us all the advice we needed for Stockholm. Living on the boat was fantastic and it had everything we needed for a 2 night stay in Stockholm. One of the best hostels I've stayed in!

Maybe this is a required experience for youthful travelers as it comes close to being in that category. Two or three nights accommodations did not cost much years ago when stayed here. Yes it is an introduction to the large amount of water surrounding Stockholm and a perspective on Swedish history. This visit was part of my exploration of Sweden...

I stayed on the boat, which was incredible, the morning views were a treat! I think more could be made more of the boat and have some seating on the deck. Unfortunately my experience of reception staff wasn't great - asked for opinions of where to go/what to eat and answers given were very unspecific. The breakfast offered was great...

I initially booked this hostel for the uniqueness, willing to put up with any problems just to have the fun of getting to stay on a boat for the night. However, I was very impressed with this hostel as a whole. Staff were friendly. The rooms and showers and such were clean. The beds were very comfortable and sheets and...
