My stay at City Backpackers was my first in a hostel, as it was my first time travelling abroad solo and I was a bit nervous going there. Couldn't have asked for a better time. I did some research before I went to Stockholm to try and find a social hostel where I could meet people, and City Backpackers did... More

Central location, 5 minutes walk from central station. Friendly, helpful staff. Plenty of showers, rarely a queue and loads of hot water. Extremely comfortable matresses and a decent breakfast for under 600 sek. All the other guests were very friendly and there was lots of drinking and chatting in commom areas. All round great weekend!

Considering the price and the excellent location, everything was perfect except the beds. Springy loose beds with lumpy bumpy pillows on shakings bed frames are not for comfortable and painless sleeping, unless you are a teen. By the way, the atmosphere and common facilities were much better than expected.

I went with a group of 8 friends and we really liked the room. The facilities the hostel provided was great, they have a laundry room, computers, couches, kitchen and even a sauna room! It's really comfortable staying there and I highly recommend this place!

Great location, friendly staff and extremely nice (and hipster) interior. Since I'm swedish, me and my boyfriend didn't try the typical swedish activities that were offered (sauna, making meatballs, watching old swedish classics) but I bet they're great for foreign travelers! As everything in Sweden it's pretty expensive, but still an ok price based on the location and the standard!... More

This hostel was a cool place, I stayed there in May 2011. Very clean, lots of opportunities to meet other cool backpackers. Not the absolute best, but very good. Its design and facilities were very interesting, and it was a good choice for me.

I just finished three nights stay at City Backpackers Hostel in Stockholm, and had an excellent time. The hostel is very clean, and the staff are super friendly. There's something on each evening, and I had a great time participating in the Swedish Meatball experience (sampling & cooking Swedish meals). The travellers at the hostel were also super cool, and... More

I spent three nights at CBPH in March 2015. The hostel delivers fantastic value for its cost. It's very close to the central station making it very easy to move to and from the hostel. The rooms and beds are very cosy and clean. There is an electronic lock on every room, which makes it very safe. The kitchen is... More

What I can say ? It was just great - located in the city centre (5 minutes away from the central station and walking distance to the main attractions of Stockholm), big, well-equipped kitchen, large common room with 4 computers available to use for free, sauna, a lot of showers and toilets, very friendly staff. The breakfasts were really good... More

City Backpackers is amazing. Clean, big rooms, big kitchen, nice common areas, nice staff and the free sauna is an amazing plus. The location is also pretty good. It's the place to stay, I loved it. Can't recommend it enough. The only thing I think it could get better is the laundry facility. Don't expect to use it, you'll probably... More
