I strongly advise anyone who is traveling to Stockholm on a budget to stay at the City Backpackers hostel. The staff is really friendly and accommodating, the rooms, kitchen and bathrooms are clean and the decoration is quite nice! You can easily meet people and still manage to get a good night of sleep. The hostel is located 5 min... More

Friendly, helpful, clean and fun. Great interior. Would definitely come back. There were two of us in Stockholm for a few days and this was a great place to stay to meet people to explore the city with but also get a decent night's sleep.

I wish that I had far more than one day in this hostel. The staff are super friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable enough, and the location could not be better. As it turned out, I had to wake up at 3 to catch a 3:30 bus to the airport, and the hostel's centralized location made that easy to... More

A pity that the breakfast isn't included in the price, but it was really good! I also love the reception room, it is cosy and we enjoyed reading our books there with a free cup of tea :) but the one fact that didn't make our stay super, was the fact that our bed made so much noise, everytime i...

Nice appartment where i stayed with my friends. Also the rooms are basic but nice. The no shoe policy worked fine. The location of the hostel is perfect in the center of Stockholm. No worries about the noise of the big street because at night it will be mostly quiet.

Extremaly clean rooms and bathrooms. Kind of a hassle to get there with your luggage cause it is a basement with many stairs. I liked the fact that you couldnt wear shoes, but it was sort of weird. Good and spacious kitchen to cook your food and meet people.

The hostel was very nice, clean and big.There were a lot of friendly and entertaining travelers in there. A great kitchen which invites everyone to socialize. The bad thing in the hostel was the washing-machine situation (a lot of people who want to wash and only one machine). Also the concierges weren't very friendly (too little staff for the whole...
