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.

I thought it was unclear on the booking if you were staying on the boat or in the house which I didn't like. I also was not a big fan of the "clean your own room and make your own bed" policy which I've never seen in a hostel before and made for some pretty disgusting linens. The staff was helpful though.

Die Jugendherberge ist sehr gut eingerichtet und hat für jeden einen guten Schlafplatz. Allerdings ist das Verriegelungsystem sehr laut und das stört besonders im Dormroom. Auch für die Zwecke junger Backpacker ist die Jugendherberge nicht optimal da sich (zumindest bei meinem Aufenthalt) keine kontaktfreudigen evtl auch alleinreisende junge Leute (zwischen 17 und 27) befanden.
