Really great place to stay, clean, great facilities, everything you'd need. Only downside is it's not really geared up for a solo travellers looking to meet other people and lacks an atmosphere - this could just be time of year though.


The location is great, it's quite interesting staying on the boat and it's a clean hostel. The wifi could work better on the boat rooms and the shower was quite weak.


Brilliant place to stay in the heart of Stockholm - cabins cosy and location splendid. Only issues were a shower lock that was tricky and a staff member who did not book an extra night for us when we thought we had - also parking tricky - make sure you read rules carefully to avoid a ticket - otherwise strongly recommended.

No comment, the hostel is absolutely amazing!


Nice hostel. I really enjoyed staying in this boat, it's a unusual, fun experience. I also liked the view.


It was very very very cold! It was cold outside but we expected the heat to be a little better.

This was an awesome hostel, mainly because of the novelty of staying on a yacht. I went in the beginning of winter but could imagine the atmosphere being great in the summer having a few drinks on the deck but not this time round. The city was great, would definetly recommend visiting the old town.


Fantastic, thank you. One small point, I noticed that a number of people didn't appear to be paying for breakfast and the menu could do with changing a little each day. Thank you again. Simon


A hostel on a sailing boat. This sounds weird, but the comfort is great, the place is clean and the view during a chill on the boar during the evening is breathtaking. I know where I am going to stay if I go back to Stockholm.


Great experience sleeping on a real boat, I strongly recommend it. Very clean rooms and good atmosphere.


Everything is perfect there. The reality, believe it or not, is like in the pictures: beautiful sight from the boat etc etc. The lockers could be better and be/look safer, but the ones they have are ok. Besides that everything is perfect: friendly staff, helpful, with solid english (as, it seems, the whole city of Stockholm). Great place, great city, beautiful country. I would stay here again (I would actually live here if I could :)


Really cool hostel. Has everything you need, either on the boat itself or in the main building. Wifi worked all through the boat, plenty of showers. Only gripes at all are that since it is on a tiny island, you have to walk a little ways to get off the island, and then connect to the metro from there. Also, the lockers won't take a typical sized padlock, make sure you have a tiny one with you.


Feels more like a hotel than a hostel. Maybe because I got lucky and got my own room, but the lobby, and for that matter, the whole vibe, was like an American hotel to me (not a bad thing). Anyways, very good value, and I would stay here again.
