Not many showers / the room I was in the showers were closed. I paid for an ensuite 8 bed but didn't get it and still paid the same price so that wasn't nice for me.

Thank you for your feedback. We are constantly trying to improve the hostel and are currently renovating the ensuite room you stayed in. I'm sorry that you were not informed about this at check in. Also, during this renovation period the price for the room has been reduced to a standard 8 bed dormitory, so guests are not being charged extra. We do have several private bathrooms with showers 10 metres down the hall from this room to reduce the impact of our upgrades on guests. Cheers, Oliver CBP

Had a great time at this hostel. Clean, fun atmosphere, staff was very helpful and friendly. Good walking distance to a lot of stuff. Only complaint was some construction going on around my room early in the morning. The hostel also organizes a bunch of events so a great way to meet people.

Thanks for your comments! Great to hear you enjoyed your time at CBP. It is unfortunate that there has been some renovations in neighbouring buildings and we have been doing as much as possible to reduce their impact on guests.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at in Europe! All round excellent facilites. Large kitchen and common areas. Beds have their own power sockets and lights which is too rare in European hostels! Still a tad pricey though, especially when you have to pay extra for bed linen.

It smelt like sweage in the room the entire time I was there and the linens I was given were stained and had holes in them. Theres nothing the staff can do about the next part but the people in my room had absolutly no hostel etiquette. Coming in (loudly) at 1230, touching and moving my things on my bed and chatting quite loudly on the phone at one-two in the morning for an extended period of time with no thoughts for anyone else in the room.

I'm sorry to hear you're experience with us was not ideal. We'll investigate these issues immediately. I see that you're staying with us again, and in the event of any of these matters recur please contact staff immediately. Our receptionists will gladly exchange any marked linen and we have a member of staff on duty in the evening. They can be found in the breakfast cafe and specialise in quieting noisy roommates! Regards, Oliver CBP

City backpackers has an awesome staff to welcome you. The hostel itself is huge and there are plenty of areas to hang out and meet new people. Refrigerators and free pasta in the kitchen were a nice touch. Overall really good hostel. Take the bike tour with Michael for a different view of the city.

It is probably the best hostel I have stayed in so far this year!

Great atmosphere, well designed common spaces made it easy to meet others in the hostel. A bit harder to find quiet/non social space if that's what you prefer in the evenings, however. Excellent location, walkable from train station. Plenty of hall bathrooms and shower rooms. Outlets at every bed.

I could be wrong but probably anyone who complains about this hostel is just being picky and ridiculous.

This hostel is great. I have no complaints (except maybe the weak wifi - but realistically I wasn't sitting around surfing the internet while I was there and it was nice to have any connection at all - for free! Plus they had computers to use). Great location with grocery and liquor stores a short walk away and easy commutes to cool areas on foot/bikes. The staff were always helpful and friendly. The whole atmosphere was great and the rooms and common areas were very clean! Highly recommended!!

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Clean rooms, equipped with individual lockers and each bed has its own light and outlet. Kitchen is large and fully equipped, and even though I didn't take some, I could see that the free pasta was very much appreciated. Great common areas, good computers. Atmosphere is great and for some reason it was really easy to meet new people :) Friendly and helpful staff too! Still a bit pricey, should include bed linen or breakfast. (but would return anyway!)

Great stay and the staff were all really helpful and friendly. Especially the girl with the bangs and the brunette guy with the beard. Always had smiles on their faces and answered any questions I had and showed me new places to check out. Also very close to to train which was great.

Fantastic hostel! Very hip looking, breakfast was great and lots of social areas to hang out and meet with people. Also had a great kitchen. Staff gave a tour of the building when I checked in and had tons of extra activities! I did the bike tour which was lots of fun!!

Awesome hostel in a great location within walking distance of virtually anything. They hosted a really fun pub crawl on Thursdays that was a great way to meet people and see some local night life spots. I would definitely recommend staying here if your headed to Stockholm :)

Not much choice of breakfast foods. A very limited range of things were included in the standard package. Other hostels offer more of an open buffet style for the same price.

Thank you for your comments! We have revamped our breakfast menu to include a choice between waffles, a cinnamon bun roll or a sandwich in addition to fruit, muesli and yoghurt to accommodate the different tastes and preferences of our guests. Cheers, Oliver CBP.

Can't fault this hostel. It was the last visit on our 6 months trip after around 20 hostels and certainly finished with a bang. There has been a huge amount of though go into decorating this place with a really clear theme in mind. Love the cheap breakfast, the sauna, the many lounge/common rooms and the excellent kitchens. Met many cool people here and to be honest this hostel has the highest security out of any we visited through Europe. Highly recommended.
