Welcome to our hostel

If your group is looking for some accommodation which is a little out of the ordinary, then why not think about staying aboard the AF Chapman in Stockholm?

The ship was built in England in 1888 and sailed the world before being towed to Stockholm in 1937. It was sold to the city of Stockholm for less than £500 and then converted into a youth hostel which was opened in 1949. The nostalgia of the boat has been preserved with bunks in cabins on offer to all types of groups which are complete with portholes.

AF Chapman is one of the most famous landmarks in the city and overlooks the Gamla Stan (the Old Town) and the Royal Palace, providing visitors with easy access to all of the sights of this exciting destination. 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 accommodation.

Why not catch a ferry to the nearby island of Djurgården where you can browse the popular Skansen open air museum. For younger guests the amusement park Gröna Lund, the Aquaria water museum and the Nordic museum might prove to be popular options. You can also visit the wonderful world of Astrid Lindgren at Junibacken.

If you want to venture further afield, the hostel is just a short stroll to boats which transport you to the wonders of the Stockholm Archipelago.

Whatever your reason for visiting Stockholm, then a stay at the AF Chapman will provide your group with a talking point for many years to come. Why not make an enquiry now?
