I must say that City Public Hostel is one of the hostels that I hated the most among the ones I stayed at during my trip in Scandinavia. First, you must pay for absolutely everything (blanket, pillow?...) and what you pay for isn't even good. I stayed in the 6 beds female dormitory and there was no room to put our luggage. I was assigned bed 1, which was a top one, and I had no ladder to climb on it. Plus, the bed was crooked (how safe when you sleep on the top bed). Another downside was that we couldn't lock the room. Even though there is a locker in the room, it's still not safe since anyone could enter and just take your luggage (since it certainly won't fit into the locker).
The hostel isn't that noisy, I have seen worse, but some things are annoying and will maybe give you a hard time sleeping, like the bathroom door getting slammed every five minutes or the lack of space in the rooms giving no choice to the other people but to try to make their way as « quiet » as possible.
The kitchen was fine although there were very few tables to sit at, not really practical since it tends to get busy at dinner time (and even later). It's even worse when you have to use the kitchenette when the main kitchen is busy because of the (paying) breakfast offered by the hostel that is served there.
The showers lack a lot of privacy, you basically have to undress in front of everyone and you have to use your imagination if you do not wish to show yourself naked. That was very annoying.
Despite this, there are still a few good things about this hostel. It has free WI-FI, which is always a big plus. The location is perfect, it's only a few minutes away from the Central Station and the main street. The staff is quite nice.
These few good sides still don't give me enough reasons to stay at this hostel again, though. I barely slept (and when I did, it was far from being a good night of sleep) and nothing was comfortable. I wouldn't recommend it unless you are only looking for a place with a very good location (but there are other options...).
