The af Chapman sailing ship has recently been renovated from keel to mast, and is one of city's most famous landmarks overlooking the Gamla Stan (the Old Town) and the Royal Palace. The Youth Hostel's reception is located in a beautiful yellow 19th century building next to the boat. It is open 24 hours and also houses further accomodation.
Stay in comfortable cabins on the ship - some of which have been restored back to their original style - or in regular rooms in the 19th century building on Skeppsholmen. This location also has an unusual history - the original building used to serve as firewood storage space for the royal castle in the 18th century.
From the hostel you are close to Stockholm's museum, restaurants and entertainment.
A ferry provides you with easy access to the
nearby island Djurgården where the popular Skansen open air museum and the Vasa Museum are located. Other attractions located on Djurgården are the amusement park Gröna Lund, the Aquaria watermuseum and the Nordic museum. You can also visit the wonderful world of Astrid Lindgren at Junibacken. From the hostel it is only a few minutes walk to boats to the Stockholm Archipelago.
Our ecological breakfast buffet is very popular. Bar Chapman serves food, beer, wine and coffees and is open daily.
Our hostel is a meeting place for people from near and far, including global travellers, interrailers and families with children. Many of our guests return to enjoy the pleasant environment and to take advantage of the superb location again.
