What a cool hostel! I stayed here a few nights and loved every second of it. A great, and affordable, place to stay with a wonderful atmosphere, in a good location. I could have stayed here a week! Will definitely be recommending to fellow travelers!

Excellent place to stay. Great value for money. Stockholm in general is a bit pricey but this place was definitely not overpriced. Plus the staff were extremely helpful! The hostel itself offers several facilities such as a sauna and is an excellent option for backpackers.

Hi there, I'm sorry that you felt strange with the people in your room.It was not intentional that you were put in a room with non-white people. I think it was just a coincidence. We do not discriminate and welcome people from all over the world. We like that there is a mix of people with different ages and background....

My stay at the City Backpackers Hostel was good. The hostel has plenty of lockers (bring a padlock) and bathroom facilities available for its guest. The only minor drawback is the definition of "quiet hours" which should be at 11PM; one of the nights had people talking loudly in a group as late as 2:30PM that kept me up. Other...

Great that you had a lovely time at our hostel. It's important for us to try to keep the noise level down, because one of the main points people stay with us is to sleep. We try our best to inforce this but some people forget this when they are having too much fun. If you stay another time, and...

Best Hostel i have been! Very clean hostel with nice decoration and pretty good beds to sleep. The staff were friendly and you can get breakfast for a good price as well. The location is really good. It really worth the money you pay. :)

We had a 6 bedder ensuite to yourselves. It was very clean and tidy. The staff were friendly. They even had a foosball table in the front, if you like a game or two. It is fairly quiet at night, however in the morning, there were some constructions going on (started since 6am)!

(+) The organisation of the whole hostel was quite impressive, with all the labelled refrigerators and other stuff in the kitchen. My dormitory room was very clean, as the common room, and my bed was very comfortable. I spent a few hours in the common room, which was also cozy and comfortable. All in all, a very nice experience.

City Backpackers was a funky, cool hostel close to the main core of the city (VERY close to the train station!). I had a neat room in what was the basement, but it was still pretty neat. Even the 10 bed female dorm I was in managed to feel spacious. I really liked that the hostel was like a big...
