We stayed in a double private room which was 2 bunk beds in a tiny room with a window facing a cafe. It wasn't bad just very average. Had to pay for linen and towels, no shoes inside, toilets are a few rooms away, showers aren't nice! We tried to clean our clothes in the washing/ dryer and wasted 3... More

We were in Stocholm two weeks ago and stayed at The City Backpackers, and it was absolutely amasing. The hostel is situated 5 minutes fron the central railway station. The main sights are also at hand because the hostel is located in the hub of Stockholm. As to the hostel itself, it's very clean, cosy and convinient for those who... More

It was a pleasant stay there. There's a kitchen and a supermarket is not far away from it. Best of all, there's Swedish movie night everyday! The staff are so nice and friendly. I quite enjoyed there when I was in Stockholm.

This hostel is simply amazing. The staff is friendly, the hostel extremely clean, great location and the facilities are very good. The common room and kitchen are designed to meet a lot of people and are very comfortable.

Enjoyed my stay here - I loved the homey feel of this hostel and my favourite thing about it is probably that there is a no-shoes-inside-the-house rule. It was an easy walk from the central station, mostly very clean, comfortable and had a nice atmosphere, as well as free pasta! Everything was more or less well organised and staff were... More

Stockholm is expensive so be prepared. Having said this the hostel is pretty good value considering the location, and they are super helpful. Their bicycle rental is a fantastic deal for four hours, although first learn how to use a back-peddle breaking bike if you don't want to have a near accident!

Staff were nice. Facilities were well organised and clean. They had many interesting traveling programmes. I liked they had private shower rooms. Also they offer free sauna for certain hours. Location was also good to travel. I would stay here again when i go to stockholm.

It is a good hostel,in a good position, near the central station, in a beautiful build. But less clean and much expensive than others backpackers. If you would change a room, there are member of staff that help you and member that don't.

Well first i have to apologise from the staff cause i've forgotten to put the linen in the basket. First of all its secure. Every important door you enter has a enterance code. I had no time to cook pasta but its free as the wireless. Perfect combination. And that all for a perfect price as Stockholm is unbelieviable expensive.
