The 65-room M/S Rygerfjord, one of the larger boat-hotels in Stockholm, is a white three-decker serving as both a hostel and a hotel. Built in Norway in 1950, this ship has been permanently docked on Södermälarstrand since 1995. If you're looking for a real nautical experience or refined, yacht-like ambience, then head elsewhere. But if you want a simple, affordable place to sleep and float, then give the Rygerfjord a chance.
There isn't much to the cabins: just plain walls, striped bedding, and, well, that's pretty much it. Standard and Captain's cabins have private bathrooms, while budget cabins and the "hostel" rooms–which sleep two to 12 people (sheets and towels are SEK 60)—share facilities.
We like the Astroturf-covered deck out front. Furnished with picnic tables and green Tro beer umbrellas, it's a nice spot to kick back on a summer day.

About the Rygerfjord Hotel & Hostel neighborhood
Södermalm, the island that forms the southern part of central Stockholm, is a little out of the way from major sights and museums, but hotels here are cheaper. Once known as working-class, a hipster revolution has turned it into a hot-spot with edgy shops and trendy bars and restaurants. Historic Gamla Stan and Norrmalm are just across the water.
