Which accommodation February 2015 - 760 SEK Night Budget

We have narrowed it to the following:

A room on the Chapman STF Hostel (on the ship) inc breakfast 760 SEK (top end of budget)

Loginn Hotel (boat) 535 SEK inc breakfast

STF Best Hostel Skeppsbron 686 SEK inc breakfast

We will arrive on the overnight train from Gallivare and are after somewhere safe, quiet (not a party hostel/hotel - we will be staying midweek not weekend) and easy to walk to most places (ferry for the museum). Which one would people pick. There are mixed reviews of all of them and I just can't decide so any recommendations welcome.

Are the prices you quoted all for a private double room?

I have used "The red boat" several times.

Very simple but clean, cosy and very central location by Slussen.

Have stayed at weekends and no disturbing noice at all.

Single Hostel room 520SEK. Breakfast can be purchased for 75SEK

The Red Boat is out of our budget for a private room for 2, we don't mind a shared bathroom but we so want a private room not a dorm room and so far those options I posted were the beat I found but the suggestions are very welcome.

I like STF Fridhemsplan where hostels are concerned. It has more of a hotel feel with hostel prices. Easy to get to by subway and good clientele when I have been there in the past.

I think we are going to go with Loginn. They are the cheapest and have luggage store and have been the most amenable with questions we have asked re extended check out and such and we get our own bathroom. The location seems pretty good too.

HI, just a quick opinion needed. There is a couple of others added into the mix, for 696 SEK we can get either Best Western Capitol or Mälardrottningen Yacht. Both rooms have private bathrooms and breakfast included.

It's between the yacht, Best Western or the Loginn. I really like the look of the yacht, looks very swanky breakfasts!

Mälardrottningen is right next to the Old Town, so the location is excellent. There is a building site next to it though but that's mostly an eye sore since the building acitivity is under water (a new railway through the city).

Capitol is in an industrial area (wholesale market for vegetables and fruit) surrounded by railways and motorways. It is connected to the city via buses to metro hubs Gullmarsplan or Liljeholmen.

Sounds like the yacht is a good central option despite building work going on.

The Yacht looks much better than your other alternatives.
