The red boat is divided into 2 parts: the original red boat and a white boat behind. The reception area in the red boat serves both. The "hotel" is in the white boat and the hostel and some private rooms are on the red one. We stayed in a private room, shared facilities on the red boat. 1 adult, 1 child (age 15).
Overall, I was impressed. The reception area was clean and nicely decorated and the counter staff all fluent in English and very helpful. The breakfast buffet was good too and reasonably priced for Stockholm. The boat *moves* from time to time due to tidal action on the river but this caught a few people out!
Wi-fi was free in the reception area but our room was directly below so we could get internet there. The rooms are small, however - hey, it's a boat! The location is good with a short walk to Gamla Stan subway and a safe area to walk at night. It's cheaper to buy a glass of wine in reception rather than in a bar in town ...
All in all good value, budget accommodation.
Stockholm, however, is *expensive* ... a baked potato at the airport costs $18!
To be honest, I'm glad I went to Stockholm but won't return because of the cost.
The Armory is pretty cool but everything looks so much like Prague ... and Prague is *way* cheaper.
Red boat, yes. Stockholm, no.
