City Backpackers was a funky, cool hostel close to the main core of the city (VERY close to the train station!). I had a neat room in what was the basement, but it was still pretty neat. Even the 10 bed female dorm I was in managed to feel spacious. I really liked that the hostel was like a big... More

The staff was excellent. The place was clean. The people were friendly. And the events offered were so wonderful. Never a dull day! If friends or family go to Stockholm, or I go back, this will be the only place I book!

It's a very clean hostel, comfy beds, good showers and an awesome Wi-Fi! The breakfast is a little expensive if you're in a budget, but it's very good. Lacks some more activities for guests to know each other. It's s not a party hostel, but could be better on this.

Stockholm is a nice city to visit. 1) Accomodation is rather expensive at Stockholm, so City Backpackers is a comparable cheap accomodation. 2) City Backpackers is quite central, just ten minutes away from centre (train station and airport buses). 3) Common kichen is well equipped, even with fridge reserved to a gruop of visiters. 4) Walking around without shoes might...

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.
