Really enjoyed the stay. The only thing i would recommend is providing towels free of charge. I understand why they don't but it could be enough to put some people off, which would be a shame.


Staff was very helpful and accommodating. The location is great!

The staff was really nice! The room was ok - I was on the second boat. No lockers in the room. The room was a bit small for four people, but if you just want to sleep in, it's ok... The location is actually really good - I walked to everything important in the city...and there is a supermarket relatively close bye :)


Towel for rent (20Sek) and hair dryer on request. Hallways are a bit noisy every morning (5am onwards) but cute place and love the lounge on the main floor. One female shower for whole floor.

I really enjoyed staying here! I was on the main boat, and everything was very clean and nice. The optional breakfast was very good, and it looks like it's also a place for locals to grab some food. The one downside was that it was a little bit of a walk from the closest T-Bana (Metro) station, but it's not that big a deal. Next time I'm in Stockholm, I'll definitely look at this place again!


I'm on a boat!


Cool hostel boat. Staff friendly. Stayed in a two bed private dorm. Space is at a premium but you have to expect that from a boat! Location is fantastic with great views of the city and close to many attractions and good transport links. Quiet so you'll get a good nights sleep but not a party hostel. Small bar area at reception but probably not the best hostel if your looking to socialize/ meet people. Would recommend.
