4/10 Fair

Very small room for two people, only one socket for a charger away from the beds and very little space for luggage. Have to put bed sheets on yourself. Boat didn’t smell too good in the corridor and toilets were not clean. Very cramped but then again it is a boat and it’s very cheap for the price. Owner was friendly.

I absolutely loved this property. The boat was quite solid, little to no rocking even when it was extremely windy out. The room was super cozy, and everything worked great (especially great water pressure, and radiator in the bathroom was fantastic for the cold weather on the lake). The staff was wonderful, and the location is fantastic for getting around Stockholm with ease. I would caution anyone with knee issues to be aware that the steps leading to the upper deck are quite steep, but that's the only negative I can say. Jag alskar Röd Båten!

A Quirky boat hostel. I enjoyed my stay there. It was a close 10 minute walk to the city center. The only downsides were that it's 5 minutes away from any bus stop and that the wifi was spotty.
