Considering this was just a temporary stay here till our apartment was available, I can't say it is bad, just wasn't my need at that moment. We just needed fast place to sleep over for 3-4 days and we got that with a little bit more. Free Wi-fi with MAC's available for everyone who stays here, free pasta, sauna, coffee,... More

I thought my stay was great. It combined a normal hostel experience with some great extra amenities, like free pasta dinners, ice skates to rent and a sauna free during certain hours of the night. I'm not sure I loved the shoes off policy but it was still one of the best hostels I've stayed in

The City Backpackers Hostel was one of the highlights of my Stockholm visit. It is clean and has a welcoming, casual atmosphere. It is located very close to the train station, and you can easily walk to some of the main attractions. The free pasta in the kitchen was especially appreciated in what can be quite an expensive city! I... More

Very well organized and managed hostel. It is spacious and clean. Absolutely enjoyed my stay there! There are enough toilets and facilities to go around, and the kitchen is big. Friendly staff and awesome people staying in the hostel.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Only a 5 minute walk from the main bus/train terminal, the hostel is located in a relatively quiet area so there's no street noise late at night. The hostel organises some sort of activity everyday, whether it be a pub crawl or a quiz night so guests can mingle. The heating... More

I arrived at the hostel late but they emailed me with code and clear instructions to ensure I got in and even though the desk wasn't manned there was a member of staff available to help me get into my room. I chose one of the smaller rooms with 3 other ladies and it was comfortable and clean. I would... More

This hostel does not only offer clean and nice rooms, plenty of clean bathrooms and a kitchen with free pasta, but also a bunch of great activities! There's something special everyday like a viking sauna tour or a pub tour and nothing of it is too expensive! The staff is friendly and the breakfast ist great and cheap. Everytime I... More

It was lots of fun in this hostel. There are lots of very young and open-minded hostelguests and cool, friendly staff. It was allway very clean. Somethimes a bit loudy, but it's was okay. I would recommend this Hostel to people, who are easy going and open-minded. It's a good place to meet people from the whole world. Milaaa
