Gustav Af Klint Hotel/Hostel
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The first thing that you smell when entering the boat is OIL. And of course also when going down to the cabin..the lady at the front desk said it would go away, but nothing..is this supposed to be normal?!
The walls are thin and as the cabins are right underneath their restaurant, you obviously here when people walk around on deck or talk in the cabin next to you. Yes, it is cheap (I payed 75.- Euros for 3 nights), but it is also a really basic stay. The cabins are small, you have to pay extra for the linen and towels (or bring your own) and the heating only goes on in the evening around 9pm - and as Sweden is not the warmest country, you can imagine how you can be freezing in the afternoon..
As a conclusion, this "Hotel" is recommendable for people who don't need high standards and want a cheap and central location in Stockholm.

The boat is just oposit Gamla Stan, perfect location. Hostel is quiet. Bathroom always clean, cabins not a lot. The cabins are really small, but that is normal on a boat. It is the cheapest accomodation we found in the center.

arriving after check-in time : no problem, very nice welcoming. surprised by the very tiny cabin, i was delighted by the view i had of the old town, the Chapman, the bank of Ostermalm and Gruny park from the lounge. the location near Slussen T-ban was perfect to plan all my visits. 25€ for a bed is the cheapest i ever found in Stockholm. i won't recommend it if you travel with young children because the stairs are very straight. everything was clean and despite of the heating out of order it was warm in the room, though the tempature outside was approaching 0° !

Room Tip: early arrival is better to choose the lower bed because climbing on the upper one is nearly alpism !

I've stayed once in the Botel.But this one is much bigger. With a lot of rooms, good shower, bar. The cabins are small.No place for the luggage & annoing payment for linen & key deposit. There is also no kitchen & drinking alkochol outside the bar is banned. But as I think it is the the best value/money hostel with the wondefull location. But don't wait more than place to sleep & take shower, Brekfast for 60 sek is good.

I have never been in a hotel for 50 euro per person per night and been offered towels with black stains, dirty sheets and a full dustbin! I was expecting cockroaches to come out the moment I turn off the light. The room was also smelly and the place quite noisy.
The only nice things were the location and that the staff changed the towels and the sheets when I complained.

The pictures showing the boat...looks great.But when we arrived we regret booking it! We payed almost the same as a ordinary hotel room and extra pr.pers(60 swedish crowns) for bed linen and 20 for each towel!! The woman in front desk say...don`t blaim me when I said that this was expensive for 4 people.The cabin was very small ,bed terrible,madras thin and disgusting. The one positive thing was ...just a short walk to the city.But there are a lot of hotels in the city.
The guy working night shift was very nice:)

My family of two adults and two children stayed here for one night in July 2013. The only really good thing about it is the location. Cabins (rooms) were worn. Bed linen (that we paid extra for) was clean, but the mattress in at least one of the beds had become very thin in the middle, where everyone probably had been lying completely still all night because of the very narrow beds.

The room had a bad smell of mould so we left the window open all night. Luckilly the weather was warm.

The women's bathroom with showers looked clean but the smell of mould was worst in there.
