City Hostel was very nice and it is good for groups. The kitchen is really nice, you can storage food in a fridge and make your own food. Coffee and tea is free, and there might be some free food. Toilets and showers are clean and music is playing background. Around the corner is couple of stores and the central... More

Nice hostel, comfortable beds. Lockers in the rooms made it a bit noisy when people came back, but it served our purposes well. The location is phenomenal, very close to food and the central station. Wasn't much of a party atmosphere, so probably a better hostel of you travel in a group rather than solo

I stayed at this hostel and it was "so so". When I arrived at 8pm, the reception was already closed and there was a intercom to call the security guard to open the door. It took nearly 10 mins of waiting out in the cold for them to respond, and when they responded, they didn't even give me the correct... More

Hi thank you for your review! We are sorry it took a while for the security to answer the phone and that you got the wrong code. We will of course take that up with them so it does not happen again. We do have a cancellation policy that states that you cannot cancel the booking the same day. Every... More

Great location and comfortable beds and pillows. Everything in the hostel is very clean and it has great facilities for making your own meals. The staff are also extremely friendly and helpful! A bar would also be a good addition in the future.

You won't go wrong making a booking here at City Hostel. It is in a great location close to the heart of the city and the main railway station which is perfect for getting around. There is a supermarket and 7/11 close by for any of your needs. The hostel itself is set up wonderfully; beautiful decor throughout the common... More

So when booking up a trip to Sweden we were mildly shocked by how expensive hotels were, so thought we'd go for a hostel instead. We were not disappointed! The rooms were clean, the showers were hot, and the kitchen was pretty well equipped, just what we needed for our stay. We spent most of our time exploring the city,... More

I stayed at this hostel for just one night. I specifically wanted somewhere close to central station as we were getting a train the next day to Copenhagen. I paid extra to stay here as it claimed on it's website to be next to central station and in the city center. Be warned, this is not the case! It's a... More

Pros Good location just a few minutes walk from the central station where the bus stops from the airport, friendly staff, separate toilet and shower rooms and music playing in them (!), clean facilities, well organised kitchen, no-nonsense approach but not in an unfriendly way, also felt safe. Light and plug socket above each bed too. Cons Pretty minor really.... More

City hostel is one of your best bets in Stockholm. It's clean and hygienic, close to central station so you can walk across the city to Gamla Stan and all the way to Sansken. The hip areas of Stockholm like Stureplan and Soderhall are also close by foot. It's reasonably priced. I stayed for 2 nights and it was really... More

Average backpacker hostel located next to central station. Very clean kitchen and bathrooms but a creepy place to stay at. As this Hostel is located in the underground, there are NO (!) windows. No frech air, as well. People were a bit strange there. Definitively no party hostel. But prices were OK.

We thank you for writing a review. Sorry you found it creepy, that is really not what we strive for and not a comment we usually get, but obviously that is how you felt. We do have windows in basically all rooms, but they can't be opened. We have air ventilation that is regularly checked (and adjusted if needed) to... More

Staying in Kungsholmen

Neighborhood Profile
Kungsholmen
Kungsholmen is one of the largest islands in central Stockholm and one of the most popular places to live. Its most famous attraction is Stockholm’s City Hall, which stands out with its monumental architecture and is one of the most photographed buildings in Sweden. Kungsholmen has its own little city center and shopping mall, its own beach and a lovely pedestrian area next to the water, which charms both locals and visitors with beautiful little cafés, restaurants and of course an awesome view. This neighborhood is perfect for a relaxed stroll followed by some coffee on a Sunday afternoon.
