An extremely safe and well thought of you sleep on a ship! Oct 22, 2017
af Chapman is YHA's Stockholm offering. The premises consists of 2 parts: an 1800s main building where the reception, self help facilities, restaurant/bar and the group rooms are based. And then, the best part - right across is the ship, the af Chapman where you have the shared dorms.

The hostel is simply brilliant.

For one thing, it's knowing you're sleeping on a boat, with views from each window of the magnificent palace and Gamla Stan. The rooms are well furnished, ample lights and charging slots, plentiful bathrooms and toilets, and overall warm despite being on the river. Best is, wireless works fairly well in the rooms.

There's a buffet breakfast provided with the classic Swedish dishes. You also have a self help kitchen and dining area (which tbh, was a bit "hidden") with great views of the river

The staff is unbelievably friendly. And well versed as well, such a break from the other hostels these days which are manned by "pay for your stay" folks who are usually clueless when asked for sightseeing tips and such.

The two biggest bonuses = location for one. Right, as in literally right next to the bus stop with constant (15 min) connections to the main terminus. And a short walk away, one can catch a ferry to the other attractions in town - the ABBA museum, Vasa museum, etc. And the next is safety and security. Everything, including the ship is gated. There's a gated door that leads to the jetty. And the ship is secure as well.

All in all, this was one helluva experience. Not just because the stay was comfy, but it felt so good to be able to wake up (on a ship), and stare into the Gamla Stan (from my room) every morning. Highly highly recommend!

Oh yes, the ship (again!)

Average hostel, but a must-visit tourist attraction Jul 21, 2012
I stayed at Af Chapman two nights. As a hotel, Af Chapman is of average quality. Cabinets in dorms aren't very safe, even if you buy a padlock at the reception desk you can still open it with one strong pull. Safe lockers are near the reception desk, but you have to pay for them 10 SEK each time you use them.

As a tourist attraction, on the other hand, Af Chapman is a must-stay. It is nicely located and in the evening Gamla stan( and the ship itself) looks spectacular.
