I stayed at this hostel for three nights, and am going back for another two very soon. The location is great, just a 5 minute walk from the main train station with a bus stop just down the street.

Great friendly hostel in a great central location, it's a few blocks from the central train station and bus terminal for the flybus. The kitchen is great and well stock with free pasta. There is also a great grocery store 5 blocks up the street.

Walking in, I enjoyed the look and feel to the place. The people staying there were very nice and welcoming. We had an 8 bed room with comfortable beds.

I stayed here one week ago and I have to say that I have the best hostel experience. The room was clean and the bathroom was neat (but could be more clean). I travelled alone and got to meet great people there. The atmosphere of the hostel is very nice and the interior design is unique and

City Backpacker has very relaxing atmosphere. It has multiple common areas to chill out so be sure you will have your own corner after a long day. Free tea and coffee during the day is a great plus for the hostel. It was very clean and organized place. Toilets and showers are plentiful which is so good for morning rush... More

I had a GREAT experience staying at CityBackpackers. Is very close to the CentralStation, very huge, clean, comfortable and fun hostel. There's a huge kitchen, free pasta, a lot of sofas and common areas where you can make friends and have fun. I have absolutelly nothing to complain.

Clean, friendly, great location, great facilities with very nice computers, cafe and kitchen . The only thing I found annoying was taking the shoes off to get to the dorms. 4/5 - bla bla bla 200 characters.
