STF Vandrarhem af Chapman & Skeppsholmen hostel is centrally located on the island of Skeppsholmen in Stockholm, offering a unique hostelling experience aboard an old sailing ship or in a 19th century building originally used as firewood storage for the royal castle.

Aboard the ship you can stay in comfortable cabins - some have been restored back to their original style - or in regular rooms with bunk beds in the 19th century building. In the main building you will find a kitchen, common room with TV and a bar and restaurant that serves traditional Swedish food.

Af Chapman & Skeppsholmen is close to the nightlife and museums of Stockholm. In just a few minutes you can walk to the archipelago ferries at Strömskajen and further onto Kungsträdgården, or hop on a ferry to get to Skansen Open-Air Museum, Cirkus concert hall and Gröna Lund amusement park.

We enjoyed our stay very much and the service was very good. The only actual issue was the problem with heating in the room. Was nice of you that you offered us an extra heater, though.

Mitarbeiter: freundlich und entgegenkommend. Toll: am Abfahrtstag konnten wir uns bis abends in der JH aufhalten, Küche, WC und den Aufenthaltsraum benutzen durften! - Schlechtere Wertung beim Umweltschutz bezieht sich auf folgende Beobachtungen: Heizung war nicht regulierbar, lief nachts voll durch - wir brauchten frische Luft = offenes Fenster. Viele Lichter brannten die Nacht durch; keine Mülltrennung in der Küche; in der Dusche tropfte es, es gab keinen Hinweis, wie sie abzustellen ist.

Attraction tip

Wander both sides of Gamla Stan. The side nearer the hostel is less busy but has some interesting places.
