I spent only 1 night there, the atmosphere is really like a big family house with common kitchen and the living area. The toilet is clean. The receptionists are very friendly. I love the check-out chocolate.

Clean hostel, friendly and helpful staff, big kitchen with free pasta and a really nice common room. All the facilities you need. It was easy to find and is set in a really good location, less than ten minutes walk from the central station, and about a twenty minute walk to Gamla Stan, the old town. I would stay again!

Great location. Friendly staff. Super clean, hip and trendy - kind of what you'd expect in Sweden. I stayed in a 8 bunk room but it didn't feel crowded at all. If you're looking around for a place in Stockholm, this is the one.

This city is one of my top 5 European cities. City backers was certainly an important piece to my fun experience in Stockholm! It was clean, had a good atmosphere, and made it easy to meet people to see the sights with.

Nice hostel, fantastic location in Central Stockholm near metro and walking distance to city centre shops. Clean, comfy rooms and fabulous fridges for every room in the lovely kitchen. Breakfast and linen could have been included in the price.

Everything you would expect in a well ran hostel. Clean, great facilities, helpful staff. Reception area is easy to find and check in is easy. I tried out the sauna and it was very relaxing. The free pasta is uncooked noodles, this was not what I was expecting.

Thanks so much for your kind words! A note to other guests, pasta is available uncooked in our kitchen (for free) which can be incorporated into your meals. We have sauces available at the front desk and there is a supermarket located nearby for groceries. Regards, Oliver More
