No ship in winter.
I stayed in winter. You could not stay on the ship because it was too cold so you stay in a regular building across the street. The showers have no privacy for men. It is only 4 showers in one room no doors or curtains. The staff was very nice and helpful. The beds were very comfortable. Only one USB outlet per bed.

Comfortable, but in need of improvement
We chose STF for it's proximity to the Royal Institute of Art, as my partner's son is studying there. If you don't have a reason to be on the small island of Skeppsholmen, you'll likely be frustrated by the location, as there's not much around. Across the bridge, you can walk to the city center, and there are ferries, but just know that this is not a lively spot. We booked a private room, which was in the building with reception and the cafe (only the dormitories are on the boat). I was happy to see that many families and older couples were staying there, as I haven't stayed in a hostel for 20 years. We had two twin beds, on opposite sides of the room, but it was fine, and they had comfortable pillow tops. We inquired about getting a room with a view of the water but none were available. There is no elevator at the property, and I believe it is four stories high. We were on the floor with the kitchen and breakfast room, which meant it was busier than the rooms upstairs. The breakfast was not worth the money for me, as there were limited vegan options, but my partner found it ok. I do wish that the kitchen were bigger, especially as people staying on the boat come over to use it, too. There was simply not enough room for everyone, so it's best to keep meals to what can be eaten cold or heated in the microwave. The showers were also quite frustrating, as the water only stays on for a few seconds before you have to press it again. We had no problems with sharing the bathrooms.

Pleasantly surprised to find kitchen with equipment and refrigerator available. Beds comfortable. One shower ran cold water only but didnt discover this until in, so was very uncomfortable. Location wonderful for Stockholm visit. Walking distance to starting point of Hop On, Hop off city tour. People of all ages stay here. Be warned that luggage must be carried upstairs as no lift is available.
