So cheap and it has everything you'd need! On top of the facilities they also arrange plenty of activities that makes it easy to mingle and experience the City in a festive way. The kind staff make a great standard for the atmosphere which infects the guests as well. The location is superb. Altogether I believe this was my best... More

City Backpackers was my first hostel experience and I felt completely at home. Built lasting relationships with people, met incredibly talented people [a chef who cooked us a 5* meal], and all right close to the action inside of Stockholm. The people within Stockholm are also incredibly excited to speak English with you, so there is no need to worry... More

Great hostel. Close to the central station. Nice staff. Comfy bed. Delicious breakfast. Pasta for free for dinner. Kitchen is really one of the best I've experienced so far. I had a really great time in Stockholm.

This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed. The staff was lovely and helpful, the hostel was very clean and they provided free pasta for everybody, how cool is that? The showers were amazing and I felt very comfortable there. Loved the vintage decoration too, everything was perfect and the location was also a plus. Right in the... More

Very impressed with this top notched hostel in the heart of Stockholm. Every room is spick and span, the beds are very comfortable, and met many friendly travellers. Really had an awesome time. As well the staff is really attentive to answer your customised needs, and is always available at any hour. Very positive points for a youth hostel. Anyway,... More

I really enjoyed the modern look of the hostel and the events organised through them. Plenty of space, clean, helpful staff, good environment for a solo traveller. Too bunk doesn't shake when person on bottom moves!

Stayed for one night and for being in Sweden it's a really cool place were you can meet travellers from all over the world and that was awesome cause I'm not used to see people from Australia, America etc. in Sweden (as I'm a swede) I've only met them when I've been abroad myself. So I would totally recommend this... More

I only stayed 2 nights. I was impressed how clean and well organized it was for such a good price. I stayed in the largest mixed dorm. All the people in the room and at the reception were very nice and helpful.

Nice and cozy place in the middle of the city and very close to the central station. We had a double room and we did like it. The staff was helpful and friendly. They should start the check in a bit earlier. We think that 8 am is a little bit to late.

Around 8-10mins walk to the city centre, easily located. We were lucky as we got upgraded to a private room with attached shower/toilet and sauna free of charge. Room is clean and spacious. Love the deco at the reception. Unfortunately one of our friend's hiking boots were stolen from the common shoe rack. Guess the best is to keep your... More
