THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER
Oct 2019
I travel a lot solo and I almost always stay at hostels. This one is the best yet. A very juvinile vibe. Clean and secure. Really cozy. I basically loved it and I'm planning on returning.

Nice but missed opportunities
Jun 2019
Our guide was very nice and knowledgable. The pace of the bike trip was comfortable, as there were riders with various skill levels who were able to keep up. However, there are a few hills to climb and cobblestone streets to negotiate. Our tour was on National Day - a national holiday in Sweden. There was a very special event with the changing of the guard at the Royal Palace. We arrived on our bikes at the perfect time to watch this special event. Instead, our guide led us away from the Royal Palace and the exceptional hilltop view over the surrounding area. On a non-national holiday, I'm sure this trip is quite worthwhile. We were just a little bummed out that we missed this event.

Bad experience
Sep 2018 • Solo
I spend 15 euros without checking first the bikes, I trusted another reviews, and the bikes not worth the money. They are poor, if you want live "peligrosamente", go ahead, but if you worth your life, forget them, better spend the money in the public transport.

Not worth the money - no bikes available for the whole weekend
Aug 2018 • Couples
We took a three day pass for a long weekend but only achieved to get four times for each a max. 10 min ride a bike. The rest of the days all stations were permanently empty! Consequently wouldn’t recommend city bikes to anybody who really wants a bike to use.

Great way to see the city...

I’m a big fan of bike hire schemes. This one has plenty of access points.

The only negative is the price. A little too expensive in my opinion. A 3 day pass costs £15. Buy the pass at a 7/11 for simplicity.

What is better than other city schemes around the world, is that you can use the bike for 3 hours. That is very useful. London, for comparison, is only 30 mins.

Plenty of cycle lanes, which make it a pleasure to be on a bike in Stockholm.

The most economical way to navigate Stockholm
Aug 2018 • Couples
Stockholm’s City Bikes scheme is the best of any I have used throughout Europe and North America. Good condition bikes, excellent app showing availability and best of all, they can be kept for three hours at a time before needing to be Re-docked. This is hugely advantageous, allowing you to really explore the islands!

Not as easy or modern as could be. No internet access/availablity
Jul 2018 • Couples
Was shocked when got to first bike station and couldn't purchase via internet. Had to change plans (bus). Have to go to a store 7-11 and then purchase AND then to bike stand. Plus no self locking means always have to find a bike stand. Some of stands are far apart and some (Old Stockholm) are full so can't return bike. Stockholm is bike friendly, this company could make some upgrades and it would be better. Bikes were good however.

Easy way to discover Stockholm
Jul 2018 • Friends
3 days offer was cheap and easy to go round, only problem is to locate the station if you are not familiar with the city or the station is full!!!😥
Worst still... the station wasnt working (modern museum) then if you are running out of time you might be desperate to avoid getting a fine.
If you are not used to this style of brakes.. could be complicate as someone clomplained in the reviews.
