Excellent location and ambience, friendly staff who were very helpful.


Definitely stay on the boat, maybe request harbor-side room if possible, as it was cool to look out. Staff was very nice and accommodating, from stamps to local info to baggage storage. Very convenient location to central stockholm

All the reception staff were very friendly and helpful and reception is open 24h. Booking was easy and communication prior to stay was excellent. Bed linen is provided which is NOT the case in many Swedish hostels, also a towel. Kitchen facilities are good and it's fun sleeping on a boat.

the locker for my bed was broken. there's no signs to direct which way to go to get to the room, i found it quite confusing, had to walk back and forth to locate my room. the bed was comfortable with bed lamp and electricity socket. enjoyed the breakfast too. staff was friendly but not very knowledgable regarding the travelling information.


Without doubt I'd book again if I came back to Stockholm. I loved a lot the place, it was very especial staying in a boat in the center of a big city like Stockholm.


A SUPER cool boat that I think is worth staying at for that aspect alone. To be honest I don't remember if it had laundry facilities, but it had everything else that you would want. The showers/restrooms were very clean, and although the shower operated on a push-activation, it was not much of a hassle and the water was always warm. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms very large. I liked the people I met there and met many even though I didn't visit the common areas much.


The ship is located pretty close to the center and is also the best looking hostel I have ever stayed in. Seriously with the lights of the city and the illuminated ship - simply beautiful! Staff is very nice and, kitchen super clean and there is no doubt about security. My recommendation!
