It was very fun to stay on a boat, but also very pleasant: a comfortable bed (if narrow), a quiet setting away from busy streets but a short walk from Gamla Stan. I'd happily return.

No towels provided, pretty grim shower facilities, and you have to make your own bed which is the last thing you want to do after arriving at a hostel. No wifi in the rooms and incredibly expensive. However the staff and food were really nice and the location is good. The reception area is a lovely place to chill. All in all, fine if you're willing to shell out big money for the gimmick of staying on a boat!

Great idea, a hostel on a boat, but it is lacking atmosphere and the staff weren't that helpful. When I was there the common room was deserted and the staff didn't talk either.
