  Af Chapman in Stockholm's Harbour
by Mundus

Af Chapman is an old sailing boat anchored in Stockholm harbour. It was build in March 1888 in England to participate in the trade to Australia. Since 1948 serves as a Youth Hostel.
Taking a shower in the boat's bathroom is an adventure because the bathroom floor is not even. If you let the soap drop it will stop quite far from your shower! My room's porthole had a view to the royal palace.

Unique Qualities: How many opportunities do you get to sleep in a XIX century boat?

It doesn't have a kitchen as most youth hostels have, but me and my friends cooked outside in the grass using a small gas stove. Fanstastic rice!

The ceiling is not very high, which caused me some challenges since I'm 1,94m.
