I stayed here: July 2001. This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. It is centrally located and is run like a family home. You have to take your shoes off when inside. They have a comfy lounge where you can meet other guests. There is a kitchen for doing your own cooking. There is also a sauna, though I didn't make use of it. The hostel is very family orientated, and this was perfect for me and my friends because we wanted a quiet night's sleep. Outside is a courtyard where you can sit and chat. Breakfast is available at a cute little buffet restaurant a few minutes away. This hostel is wonderful!

It may have been frozen outside with 6' snowdrifts but inside the City Backpackers hostel in Stockholm, it was lovely and warm. The staff never seemed to turn off the heating and the very cheap sauna was wonderful. The common room was full of interesting people and CNN kept us all up to date. On the negative side, the kitchen was a bit small but it didn't really detract from a great holiday. And I should mention the incredible icicles that formed on the tower outside.

City backpackers is a friendly hostel downtown in Stockholm. I loved staying there. Nice staff and free internet. And a great atmosphere.
