I was here for 4 nights. Although the downstairs can be a bit of a maze at first, the hostel was very clean, orderly, and peaceful. I stayed Friday through Monday nights, and even though I didn't interact much with the rest of the hostel guests, those I did befriend were very nice! The price was right, the place was... More

My friend and I arrived at City Backpackers, desperate after the night from hell at nearby Interhostel (see my review) We found a spotlessly clean, modern, female friendly environment which was exactly what we needed. The sauna was epic and I'm sure that the free wifi was way better than my own at home. The staff are lovely, it's so... More

I stayed here for a few nights and enjoyed myself. Very cool hostel, great location, clean, modern, great activities, etc. I wouldn't stay anywhere else and I'd definitely recommend this hostel to people. Also the movie nights are great! Swedish movies with English Subtitles every night. And the Swedish meatball course is great value for money and a lot of... More

Located in central Stockholm, it is just a few minutes walk from train stations or Arlanda express and is easy to find the place. Kitchen is well furnished, you can grab anything you need to cook. There's a leisure space with several computers which was a great place to check out anything you need during travel. you can also bring... More

I stayed at the City Backpackers Hostel for five nights last week, and the hostel and Stockholm have been my favorite places in Europe so far. The staff is nice and helpful, and my hostel mates were the best. It was quite easy meeting people (especially in the 12 person mixed room), and the location is just a ten minute... More

The place is very close to Stockholm Central Station. The location is straight forward and easy to find. When you walk towards the hostel you'll see a big flag hanging outside. The rooms are well kept and quiet. I also do like the fact that you get to have a kitchen and the ability to cook your own food since... More

Nice, clean, very good location and people there are friendly. But something happened that the hostel staff did't get my booking information.Anyway they arrange a new room for me. Breakfast is very good.
