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...

Wonderful hostel. One of the best I've visited. I would thoroughly recommend the bike tour, excellent location, clean. The only reservation is there were no windows in the bedroom. But overall SUPERB!

Stayed here for 3 nights in February 2013 with two friends and shared a 6-bed dorm with a group of German girls. This was without doubt the best hostel experience I have had. We were quite lucky that we had a room at the street level as I think these were quieter than downstairs and we had a full-sized window.... More

I stayed in the City Backpackers already several times. It's very clean and the rooms are quite big, except of one which was more like a cell without windows. But even then I loved to stay there! I very much like the fact that, as in all Swedish houses, you are supposed to take off your shoes, when entering the... More

Best place to stay when visiting Stockholm! Great atmosphere and location in the heart of the city.Sauna and free wi-fi are additional advantages. Café just next door. Excellent service always willing to give you the information you need.

I stayed in the Ceylon room for one night at the end of august. The room was quite big, compared to other hostels in Sweden I have stayed in, there was space for the luggage and a small locker for each bed. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they even borrowed me an umbrella as it was raining. The... More

This is my favourite hostel ever and I have travelled a lot. Why? Its the ethos and the care and thought put into it to making backpackers feel welcome and safe. The rooms, kitchen and breakfast bar are really great and very clean. There is a great opportunity to meet new people whilst cooking a pasta dish (pasta comes free)... More

City Backpackers Hostel is the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The rooms are clean, there's many areas to sit and chat, including the awesome outdoor area, cafe and shared kitchen/lounge area (with free Internet access) This hostel is within walking distance to the city centre and has many bars and restaurants close by. They also offer extras, such as... More
