Property Description

STF Youth Hostel af Chapman is located in Stockholm's city centre on the island Skeppsholmen. The af Chapman sailing ship has 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. Some 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

    Not everyone gets to stay on the ship. There are rooms behind the ship in a building where you might ending up being.

    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.

    Admittedly didn't use the facilities on offer, but stayed on the boat which was amazing! Small rooms, but that's to be expected with a cabin on an old s***t! Everything was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful

    Lovely stay in a great, unique hostel! I stay on the boat and had no issues. The boat doesn't seem to rock at all. Stayed here in early January and was perfectly warm. The floors of the boat slightly sloped, but that added to the quirkiness. The boat's an iconic view of the city, looking directly onto Gamla Stan (Stockholm old town) and the Swedish parliament building. It's a short walk across the bridge into the rest of the city, with very cheap ferry connections as well.

    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.
