Young people welcome you in a very friendly atmosphere. All is cleaned, well organized, stylish and very swedish. I stayed there only for one night, so I could'nt enjoy the afternoon sauna or other facilities but I heartily recommend!

It's simply the best! :-) Clean, stylish, good people, close to the railway station and the center, delicious breakfast, free wi-fi and great infrastructure. I would go there again without any hesitation.

I booked an apartment type room ( Birka) since there will be 6 of us staying. The apartment was good with comfortable beds, dishes, cutlery, washing machine, hanging rack, own bathromm and WC. But some few points to be improved is that the heater even in 'full' was not enough to keep us warm and the WC has no exhaust.... More

I had a short stay and didn't have time to enjoy all the facilities but I will come back again! WiFi worked perfectly, nice roommates, good location and very helpful service. The loveliest cozy hostel I've ever been in.

I booked this hostel because of the good reviews and there are certainly some good points for staying at this hostel. It's perfectly located close to the central train/bus station, the bed was really comfortable for sleeping 10 hours during the long and cold Stockholm nights :), the female dorm (8 beds) was big and there weren't any problems with...

Hello, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you did not find out about our section with private showers. We now give out a little map at check in where they are marked, but maybe you did not get that one. Outside of the showers, there is also a hairdryer... I agree that hostels Stockholm and Sweden are expensive compared... More

I'm 100% convinced this is the best hostel in Europe. Central backpackers couldn't be cleaner, safer, or more centrally located. The staff was very friendly & helpful. Do keep in mind you will need to bring or pay for your own lock and sheets.

Huge hostel and very professionally run. Rooms were spacious and nicely decorated with lots of communal space. Whole place was spotless, staff spoke perfect English and were very helpful. Did end up being quite expensive. With sheets and breakfast, £30 for a night in a big dorm room.

CBPmanager, Receptionschef at City Backpackers Hostel, responded to this review

Hello! Thank you for your review. I'm glad to hear you liked the hostel. I agree that hostels in general are more expensive in Scandinavia than the rest of Europe. To make the stay at CBP a little cheaper, you can bring your own sheets, and prepare your meals in our guest kitchen (where we also have free pasta). Kindly,... More

Stayed here for three nights. Excellent location near Central train station. Supermarket a few blocks away. Beautiful and clean interior. One of the best hostel I have ever stayed at. I will most definitely stay here again next time I visit Stockholm.
