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.

Right now I have nothing to suggest. All the three youth hostels I stayed in Stockholm were good. I stayed in dorms and facilities were very satisfactory. Kitchen is good, I just cooked some food by myself, since I had some stuffs. Best thing is surroundings, I walked round the Island. Overall good experience.
