Hostelworld says

STF/IYHF af Chapman is spread across a ship and a nearby house, with both dating back to the 19th century, offering a uniquely historical experience which Hostelworld customers have praised repeatedly, from the surprisingly spacious rooms on deck to the ‘free Internet, city maps and the nice view on the old town from the [deck] of the ship’. Our guests say this hostel is ‘great for a city break’, and is particularly ‘excellent for families – very central and near to lots of places suitable for kids’.

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. Skeppsholmen is home to the museums Moderna Museet, ArkDes and the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities (Östasiatiska museet), as well as restaurants.

Between October 1, 2021 - April 30, 2022, the ship af Chapman is closed for renovation. We are open on land as usual. You are very welcome to book your stay in the craftsmen’s building, Hantverkshuset.

Our own Café Skeppsholmen is open all year round, with meals and other refreshments served from 08:00–20:00 (opening times may vary in certain seasons). 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'.

This was one of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed in. The communal bathrooms were way cleaner than the ones at my university. There was some mix up with the beds but the staff quickly sorted it out. Breakfast was worth the money!

The hostel was nice and clean and the location (although a bit out of the way) was really nice to come back to in the evening. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Something that really stood out to me was that, on arrival, we were presenting with commemorative plates of the ship to take home— if this was an elaborate practical joke we definitely got the last laugh because the plate came home with us on the flight back. Definitely recommend, it was a little pricey but standard for Stockholm.
