Stay comfortably in the craftsmen’s building (Hantverkshuset), or aboard the three-masted full-rigged ship, af Chapman. Af Chapman brings together world travellers, business guests, backpackers and families with children. The bus stop is 200 metres from the hostel and the Stockholm Metro, as well as ferries to the archipelago, are a five minute walk away.

During the summer period, May to September, our summer restaurant Bar & Byssa is open on the ship. Here on the deck we serve food and drink that you can enjoy in the glow of the evening sun, with what is perhaps the best view in Stockholm. If it is raining you can sit inside in 'Byssa´n'.

    I really liked staying at STF at Chapman. I stayed in a shared room in the boat. The boat looks great, you can see it from far away. It was a very calm and nice place to stay. Around half of the guests were Swedish, the half from other countries. I felt both that I am at a Swedish place so I could get a little sense of the culture and both feel like I'm a traveler with other travelers from all over the world. The hostel's café is really nice, you can also order hot meals.

    That was our best experience in a hostel, ever. Our staying was much better than we expected. Omg, the beds were soooo comfortable, you wouldn’t feel like you were in a boat. Good value for money and for the experience. I would definitely recommend the place.

    Overall the experience was very good. The only thing that could be better was the temperature in the bedrooms and outside them. The temperature difference was very big and we would always get really cold when going to the bathroom. Also my bunkbed was right in front of an air vent which was really uncomfortable specially because I was already a bit sick before my trip.

    It's a novelty to stay aboard the ship for a night, though its expensive.

    Lovely place, friendly staff, clean facilities and good location. Arrived earlier then check in time and our room was ready. The space was good and clean. Very minimalist, although the view from the room looking to the water was lovely. Plenty of facilities had plenty of bathrooms for the shared rooms. We also used the laundry for a fee but was good quality. The location is a little bit more of a walk to some areas although there is a bus stop just 100m away. We enjoyed our stay here.

    This hostel was OK. It was not very fun, as most of the people staying in our 16 bed room were in for business. Definitely not the hostel to go to to meet people, but a nice location for seeing all the touristy things in Stockholm and nice that there is 24 hour staff.
