Property Description

STF Youth Hostel af Chapman is located in Stockholm's city centre on the island Skeppsholmen. The af Chapman sailing ship has recently been renovated from keel to mast (2008), and is one of city's most famous landmarks. It overlooks Gamla Stan (the Old Town) and the Royal Palace.

Our reception is located in a beautiful yellow 19th-century building next to the boat. Its open 24 hours and also houses further accommodation.

Our ecological breakfast buffet is very popular.

Stay in comfortable cabins on the ship - some of which have been restored back to their original style - or in regular rooms in the 19th-century building on Skeppsholmen. This location also has an unusual history - the original building used to serve as firewood storage space for the royal castle in the 18th century. All rooms have bunkbeds. Bed linen and towels are included.

From 2019 we are completely cashfree, better for the environment and the safety of both you and our staff members.

From the hostel you are close to Stockholms museum, restaurants and entertainment.

A ferry provides easy access to the nearby island of Djurgrden, where the popular Skansen open-air museum and the Vasa Museum are located. Other attractions located on Djurgrden are the amusement park Grna Lund, the Aquaria water museum and the Nordic museum. You can also visit the wonderful world of Astrid Lindgren at Junibacken. From the hostel it is only a few minutes walk to boats to the Stockholm Archipelago.

Our hostel is a meeting place for people from near and far, including global travellers, inter-railers and families with children. Many of our guests return to enjoy the pleasant environment and to take advantage of the superb location again. View House Rules

    Only a weekend-away trip. Stayed at Chapman hostel's dorm (not on the boat, but inside the building). Generally positive with everything. Nice view outside and 10 minutes walk to Gamla Stan.

    Very good location. Generally positive experience. But some other reviews gave me the impression that I was going to have a room in the landmark ship. But my room was actually in a house right beside the ship. There are some rooms in the ship. But I have no idea how to get one of those or if they are being use as hostel rooms at all. And there is a renovation going on in the house.

    The stay on overall was great, I really appreciate the fact that I was sleeping with my friend in the same room, the staff was really convenient. Concerning the cleanliness of the hostel, I would say it was correct, the building is in renovation so it is not at his maximum I guess. the showers could have been cleaner. Finally, the riskiness of sleeping in a hostel is who you share the room with, unfortunately, one of our roommates was strange and scary.

    The hostel was really nice amd clean, with great location. The problem was that here are no hooks in the shower cabin! Since I had to put my toiletry bag on the floor it got so wet. I put it in a plastic bag before putting it in my backback but since it was so wet a lot of my clothes got wet!. How is it possible to not have a single hook in the shower cabin in a hostel??? They only have hooks in the outside area. My stuff is not gonna get dry soon since it is so cold now.
