great position - easy to reach undergroud station and very close to the old town center (Gamlastan).
Great and unusual view on the Stockholm house and see
staff very helpfull, kind and nice approach also helping for taxi reservation! they also opened the breakfast time in advance to the usual time slot (7.30-9.30)
teen spirit in the atmosfere of the pirats!
you may choose between hostel and Hotel. I was in hotel and I had my own bath. the shower is very very small but I had a confortable stay! breakfast and bathtowel included into hotel fee.I would be there again!

Room Tip: scegliete le stanze verso il mare e al secondo piano se siete in hotel

I stayed at the Red Boat probably exactly at the wrong time.
In fact I was in the second boat, which sprang a leak and was receiving daily maintenance from early in the morning each day of my stay. Not a big issue, but there was a morning I would have liked to have slept in. Also get a room seaside, there is a fair bit of road noise otherwise.
I chose this as a cheap way to have a private room, as accommodation is expensive here. It was - fine.
The common room on the Red Boat was fun. Don't bother with breakfast - get up and explore.
Great location. Visit Hermann's for great vegetarian food and brilliant views of the harbour and Fotografiska exhibitions.
You'll need to bring your own towel or note you need to 'buy' one.
Oh and if you are anything other than small, ie. 'med-large' or tall, you will want to give this place a miss. It is a boat with small beds, passages, rooms and doorways.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview room.

We stayed @ the Red Boat for 3 nights. The reception is also the lounge what looks great. Should not go for a drink or a chat but looks great.The hostel ia on the othetr boat. Don't bother that. It looks still great. We've been upgraded to a seaview room. Lovely from the people @the desk. See the skyline of stockholm when you wake up. next to Gamla Stan. Lovely kind people, who don't talk that much but are very kind to help you out on traveltimes for public transporttation. (afterwards we realised everything was walking distance) ;) Would really recommend it to my friends. Dont expect a lot of room or showers where you can put your clothes dry, but come on, price is low and it's a hostel. Not a Hotel. (Beds are very tiny but it will do for us, not for taller persons)

Room Tip: choose sea-view side and wake up with a lovely view and no traffic noise.

What an interesting place to stay. It is on a real boat, refurbished to work as a hostel/hotel. The good news is that the place is super-nice, with a nice view of town, in a nice location, and the staff is kind. The bad news: we stayed in a 4 beds dorm, shared bathroom. You realise you are on a boat once you do get to see your room. 2 teeeeny tiny bunk beds, not made, so you have to fight with the matress and the sheets and the blankets in order to arrange it. We were so tired that we slept tight anyways. The room is so small that only one person at a time can make his/her own bed. There is hardly any room to move around, no lockers, no chair, one hanger each. There is only one toilet to share among a number of people, and only 2 showers, so you may have to wait for your turn. The bathroom – again – is so empty that you hardly know where to place your stuff. No soap so do bring your own, and no towel included in the price (but you can rent it).

Breakfast is not included, you get it for an additional price. If you are not starving or in a rush, go somewhere else. There is a decent variety, but it is mostly bread and cold cuts, and if you are lactose intolerant or vegan, there is no option for you. Coffee is possibly the worst one I have had in ages. The fruit salad is canned.

This is overall an interesting place to stay – for one night. I would not be able to take that cramped tiny room any longer!
