4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

the hostel in the centre of Stockholm is located in a quite location. The hostel itself is clean and the stuff is helpful and friendly. the rooms are in the basement where not much daylight comes through. the breakfast is quite little for the money you pay. but all over a great place to stay for low budget travellers.

I was there 6 days. Excellent look in the inside. The breakfast is absolutely delicious ! Just a little negative point : the room door does noise and the locker inside the room too, so if a mate comes at 2am you'll be awaken by the noise. But outside this the staff is cool and friendly and the equipement is... More

The hostel itself was quite good, large kitchen facilities and good outdoor area to bring drinks to. However there was not enough toilets/ showers available; spent lots of time waiting and they were not that clean. The staff were not very helpful, sometimes rude! Every time I asked for advice they were unsure and not committed to finding things out... More

Was very central for us to check out different parts of Stockholm. Had a HUGE kitchen (compared to most hostels), so cooking was never an issue. Lots of bathrooms and showers, and lots of room to chill in common areas... overall really comfortable and nice hostel. Definitely recommended.

I want to say that this hostel lived up to my expectations reading the reviews on here, but just didn't. The main plus points are that they organise social gatherings to help people to get together, and there's a great courtyard to hang out in and get to know fellow travellers but... The staff were OK. They were having some... More

We apologize for the inconvenience caused. We had an unfortunate overbooking that happens very rarely here. Our staff should of prioritzed those guests that had been patiently waiting before the new ones that just arrived. We will make note of this issue with the people involved to avoid this happening again. Also in regards to the boats in the achipelago,... More

The hostel is in the very centre of Stockholm. No transport is needed to visit the city centre. Its facilities are great and the staff is always willing to help you. The whole building is very clean especially the bathrooms.

Me and my 4 friends had an absolutely amazing stay at City Backpackers. The service was great and the ambience was very nice. Every evening we got in contact with people from all over the world and time passed way too fast. We're definitely coming back!

The hostel was okay and the staff was friendly. When I first arrived, I found it odd that there were shared showers and few private showers, but didn't think too much of it. I was leaving early in the morning and took one that evening. The kitchen seemed clean as were the showers and the bathrooms. However, the one thing... More

We are very sorry to hear that you've been having to battle it out with the fire alarm. Yes, during your stay unfortunately the fire alarm had a mind of it's own, out of our control. We have seriously checked into the issue and have resolved it now. The night staff did try to help stop it going off, but... More
