Great hostel, I would thoroughly recommend it.
The boat is difficult to get to if walking with your rucksack so be prepared for a bit of a walk (and quite a daunting walk if at night). The boat has a quirky character and does have potential to be a lovely quaint place to stay. I was in a ten bed mix dorm.. The room is small, has little air and is very hot. There are no windows to open and my room was right next to the showers which make the room ever hotter. There is nowhere to put your things other than the middle of the room with everyone
Fantastic breakfast for 75SEK and an easy location to find, just a short walk to train station, gamla stan and sodermalm. The rooms are really small and difficult for two people to move about in but I guess that's to be expected! Could use more showers and bathrooms. I did really enjoy my stay here and thought it was really good value for money, in an old well decorated barge!
Awesome character, good place, the ambiance at night with the view on stockholm at night is unique. Would go there again. Price is fair imo.
