M/S Birger Jarl - Hotel & Hostel, Stockholm

Cheap hostel very close to the center of Stockholm. The hotel is on the ship next to the Photographic Museum (Fotografiska) in Stockholm.

You can choose from a variety of cabin options from the cheapest multi-person room without bathroom, to cabin with window and bathroom - very different standards and prices.

The rooms are small but the proximity to the center and the waterbus stop (just behind the stern of the ship) are very good.

Free WiFi

The breakfasts were good.
