The Red Boat Mälaren is a cozy river side hostel and hotel aboard two lovely boats in the heart of Stockholm, within walking distance of everything.

It is located where Lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea meet, where you can watch boats passing through the lock, take a stroll down the small alleys in the historical Old Town only five minutes walk from the boat, or you can have a beer in one of several pubs on Södermalm.

You can also sit outside on the red boat.

Staying at our hostel you can choose to have a calm and relaxing time or enjoy an eventful stay full of happenings. You can spend the days in one of many shopping areas.

If you get tired of that you can visit any of the museums or art galleries close by. And in the evening you can go from one pub/club to another without having to spend a lot of time or money getting from one place to another. We also have a small bar in the Hostel lobby if you just prefer to stay on the hostel.

Our reception is open from 7.30am to 01.00am. Late check in is possible.
As the main doors are locked in the night you will receive a code when you check in, so that you can come and go as you please.

We will serve you a breakfast buffet every morning between 7.30 and 10.00am in the weekdays and between 08.00 and 11.00 in the weekends. (This is not included in the quoted prices.)

We have beds in 10, 4, 3, 2 and single bed rooms.

We are sorry to inform you that we do not have cooking facilities due to the risk of fire, but we do have a Cafeteria.

Showers and toilets are in the corridor for our hostel guests. Before you check in or after you leave you can keep your luggage in our luggage room. We are open 365 days a year.
We have internet access for our guests. No hostel membership is required.

We can also arrange garage for your car during the stay. Contact us by mail to prearrange parking spaces before arrival, please. Please contact the boat to make arrangements if you are arriving after 6pm. Please observe that due to security reasons we do not allow children less than 10 years of age.

The team on the red boat wishes you welcome on board!


Take the underground, green or red line, from the Central station to Gamla Stan (The Old Town).
You leave the station using the exit on the right hand side towards Riddarfjärden, then turn left and cross the Central bridge where you´ll see the boat on your right side. It will only take you a few minutes to reach us.

If you arrive by car, you should drive Södermälarstrand towards Slussen/Stadsgårdskajen. The hostel is located on your left-hand side, and there are several parking spaces on the right side.
