Property Description

STF af Chapman & Skeppsholmen Hostel is centrally located in beautiful surroundings, with views over the Old Town and the Royal Palace. 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. This gives you excellent opportunities to discover the entire Stockholm region. Attractions such as Skansen, Gröna Lund, ABBA The Museum, the Vasa Museum and Cirkus are easily reached with the Djurgården Ferry.

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'.

    Lovely staff, awesome view from the room and great vibe all around. Fantastic location, would stay there again for sure. I didn’t have the chance to try the breakfast though because a group of guests had booked the breakfast room and no one else could go in, other than that it was all perfect.

    I've stayed here a few times already and I will probably do so in the future! The location is great and the building also very pretty. The staff was also very friendly, though I tried to call the reception before we came and no one answered after I listened to the queueing music for several minutes :( Luckily we were able to sort out our problems by ourselves before getting to the reception after all, but it really did make uncomfortable to have no one pick up the phone after so long.

    Rented the four person room, which looks much bigger online but in reality is small. The walls were paper thin, which is something to consider if you are light sleeper. We could hear people in the room next to us & doors slam at all hours of the night. A bit overpriced considering it's on an island not in the main section of town. However, you can easily access ferries to get to the other locations. The rooms themselves were clean, and the staff super nice.

    Original bed was not as advertised. Broken locker and missing electrical outlets. Staff moved me to another room, which was in the attic. 2nd to last day staff cleared out my things, because they hadn't changed the room in the system.

    People staying were either a family or older so the atmosphere was not good for young people. The 16 bed room was similar to a war bunker and was unbearably hot with only 2 fans attributed to counteract 30 degree weather. We had an issue with another member of our room and when we went to staff, they sorted it efficiently so fairs for that. It was too expensive for the facilities provided. Location was really good tho

    The worst hostel experience I ever had. The mixed bedroom doesn’t have any ventilation whatsoever, it was around 30 degrees while I was there and being in that room felt like being in an oven. The only ventilation in the room was provided by 3 desk fans for 16 people. Additionally, the only 2 windows in the room didn’t have a curtain, so if you get the bed below the window good luck sleeping.
