The af Chapman boat hostel, centrally located near Stockholm's Old Town, is run by the owners of the Skeppsholmen hostel, located just in front of the Chapman. Together, the two hostels offer 280 beds and cater to a diverse crowd. A 17-bed dormitory, singles, and doubles provide plenty of options for backpackers, families, and older travelers alike.

The bedrooms in Skeppsholmen—also the name of the island on which the hostels can be found—are old (they haven't been renovated since the '80s) and simple. Some rooms offer views of the Royal Castle, and all rooms have a private sink. Bathroom facilities are shared with other rooms.

Bedrooms on the af Chapman boat, on the other hand, were renovated a few years back, and it shows. Beds are placed at odd angles in order to provide more open space. The toilets and showers are, in most cases, shared, although two rooms offer private bathrooms (ask ahead).

Common spaces are located in the Skeppsholmen hostel, so if you're staying on the boat, you'll have to come ashore to use the kitchen, pool table, and TV lounge.

About the af Chapman/ Skeppsholmen neighborhood

Dating back to the 13th century, Gamla Stan is the original Stockholm and the don't-miss sightseeing zone. It's also fairly convenient, as Gamla Stan bridges bustling Norrmalm to the north and hip Södermalm south. The bulk of Gamla Stan is on the island Stadsholmen, though Riddarholmen—the tiny island just to the west—is usually seen as part of Gamla Stan.
