City BackPackers Hostel
We've got free high-speed internet on eight computers (Mac and PC) and free Wi-Fi in all guestrooms. There's free pasta (make your own sauce) a free evening sauna (the ultimate Scandinavian experience) a tandem bike you can borrow for two hours, and free ice skates in the winter!
City Backpackers is the base camp for the Stockholm explorer. If you like meeting new people, you'll have the time of your life here.
The location is the best possible in the city centre - safe and quiet, although only a 500 metre walk from the central railway station and bus terminal. Most of the city's sights, including the Medieval area Gamla Stan (Old Town) can be found within walking distance, and the main shopping street, Drottninggatan, is just around the corner.
You can stay in a single or twin room, or a dorm with three, four, five, six, eight, eleven or 12 beds. Female dorms are provided. We also have three apartments/studios for up to eight people with private bathroom, shower and kitchen.
City Backpackers is designed to be a great meeting place, where you are guaranteed to meet travellers from all over the world. We have several common areas where you can hang out with fellow travellers: a large, fully-equipped guest kitchen and a cosy breakfast café, where we also teach traditional Swedish cooking a couple of evenings every week.
Our staff takes turns showing Stockholm to our guests. All year we arrange tours and adventures, such as guided bike rides in the summer and our awesome Viking Sauna Tour in winter.
When you want to relax there's a hot sauna and lounge areas with satellite TV, daily newspapers and a book exchange available. There's also a nice courtyard with comfy sofas at your disposal. Smoking is allowed in the yard, but nowhere else.
City Backpackers has an environmentally friendly approach. To avoid unnecessary laundry we encourage our guests to bring their own bed linen, although you can rent sheets from us should you want to. We also practice waste recycling, use electricity from renewable sources, use energy efficient whiteware and light bulbs, and have an overall environmental policy. As passionate travelleres we love our planet and want to save it!
City Backpackers is open 365 days a year and has no curfew. No hostel membership is needed.
We can't wait to see you, welcome to Stockholm!
