Rygerfjord Hostel is not like any traditional hostel, since you will be living inside a ship. The installations are in excellent shape, making this a good choice to stay for a few days or longer, a fun place to stay also to meet people, and enjoy the unique experience of living at sea during your stay, even though the ship is docked.
The location is quite central, since it is three minutes' walking from the nearest metro station that connects all Stockholm -- after ten minutes' walk from the hostel you can reach old town (Gamla Stan) and twenty minutes from downtown.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The rooms are not that big, since space is limited inside the boat, but they are very clean and cozy. Each bed has a reading light, but no electric plugs. Towels and bed linens have to be rented separately from the room. Sleeping inside a ship and being so close to the sea, listening the sound of the sea and breathing the ocean air makes it really easy to fall asleep and getting a good night rest after walking through the beautiful city of Stockholm. Storage lockers are of free use, fitting only a backpack, and you can get a lock from the reception against deposit.
The bathroom as well as the rooms are cleaned every day, making it very clean. There are separated showers for men and women inside the room, which makes it very comfortable.
The common spaces are quite comfortable, including a restaurant where breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served. You can also get outside the deck of the ship to get some sun -- not recommended in winter though -- or you could just chill in the common room where you can choose from a selection of books or just sit back and watch some TV. This is a very good place, with the shared rooms to meet people from all over the world and make friends. All the spaces are extremely clean, and there is no smoking. There is no kitchen available for cooking your own food, due to Swedish naval regulations.
In general, this hostel offers a very good price-to-quality ratio -- it's not cheap compared to other hostels in Europe, but on the average of Swedish hostels. It offers a very clean, safe, and central place to stay, with a very helpful staff and a beautiful view of Stockholm from the sea.
