    Stayed in the 16-bed room for two nights overall and can definitely say that this place is worth staying at. There are lovely staff, who is ready to help, kitchen facility, where you can cook anything you want to, common space at the kitchen and near the reception where you can meet up with people. Moreover even if you are not living on board of the ship you can still visit it.

    This was one of the nicest hostels I have ever visited. The cleanliness was incredible. People there were super nice and friendly. The location is also great - it's just right next to the historic part of the city. I'd definitely stay in this hostel again 😀

    Fantastic hostel/hotel in the heart of Stockholm. The location is lovely on the adjacent island of Gamla Stan. Breakfast is 110kr but worth it since the buffet style is extensive and offers something for all diets. I stayed in a 6 beds dorm and the first two nights I had the room for myself. My last two nights I met some great people! Kitchen is available and fully functional for meal prepping. There could be more bathrooms but otherwise I strongly recommend this place! Staff was great!

    Amazing staying on the boat! Loved it! On Sunday night shortly after 7pm I asked to buy a beer. The lady at the desk responded with "Can't you see that it's closed?" Other than that, a great experience.

    Staying at this hostel was a decision of the last minute due to unexpected change of plans. We stayed at the 16-bed dorm. The atmosphere wasn't the best. I felt like we were in an orphanage. 16 beds, 16 lamps, 16 drawers and a big table with chairs in the middle. It's in the attic. There wasn't any place to charge our phones and it was a bit dark. There weren't enough toilets and showers. Only 2 and 3 for a whole floor. They were clean though. The rest of the areas and the stuff were nice.

    WiFi was awful. Beds were okay, location was central but out of the way. Most staff were friendly.
