Really good place to know other people. The kitchen and the tv room are always full in the evening and everybody is talking their day experiences. Maybe the dorms should have a place to put everyone stuff on, so you don't have to put it on your bed or take out the backpack of the locker everytime.
If you stay in a 4 or more bed room don't expect to sleep well, cause you'll be awake everytime someone comes into the dorm.
location is excellent! Don't forget to bring your own towel

Room Tip: Choose a 2 or 4 bedded room if you can't afford one for your own.

Stayed here for three nights, it was great, the rooms were clean, the kitchen was big, lounge area was fantastic and the staff was very helpful. If you are traveling alone this is perfect to meet people!

Room Tip: If alone get one of the shared dorms!

Great hostel - clean, spacious, quirky, fun, cheap and central! Look no further!! Would recommend the sauna tour and pub crawl (but be prepared to pay 90 krona for a wine glass of beer in some clubs).

Just a lovely place, will most definitely return! :) Only down side was that one the cleaning personal took of my food, well juice, but anyway and I actually caught her in action. But one person doesn't make the place.

Hi, thank you for your input. I'm glad to hear that you like CBP and want to return. Once a week we go through the refrigerators and all unlabeled (with name and departure date) food and beverages are put in to the shelf "free to use", or thrown away if they are due, and that is what happened to your juice. If you did lable it and we missed it, I do appologize...
Kindly,
Ellinor
