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.


The rooms were too hot, smelly with poor ventilation. I couldn't sleep well. The bar was nicely fitted out.

Everything was very compartmentalized so there was little interaction with other guests. The rooms were tiny, and the toop bunks were very close to the ceiling.
