This was a great place to stay, easy to meet people, laid back atmosphere, clean, great location, the only one thing I'd like to ad is about the towel and linen, it should be free.
My stay at City Backpackers was awesome! It's a tad expensive but then again, everything is in Stockholm. Very clean, they allow you to bring your own sleeping bag and not have to pay to hire linen which was refreshing. Everything was very secure with 4 number codes on all locks which were updated daily. Central location. Very satisfied with my stay.
Staff were very helpful. Only improvement could be having another staff member on the front desk so we could have been processed more quickly.
Aaaaaamazing place! So modern, clean, and cool! It seems like a real world house or something like that. Lounge area, outdoor patio, full chef size kitchen, key pads instead of keys, free coffee, water and pasta Perfect location! Walk to the sights, you don't need to take public transportation This place was amazing, I can't say enough good things. I will never be able to look at another hostel the same way haha!
Extremely clean, large beds & friendly staff. The rooftop chill out area is nice and the wifi is strong. The TV was an awesome bonus too! Lots of bars near by and very close to the sky train.
An excellent hostel in every way. Location, facilities, atmosphere, cleanliness... I don't know how they could improve anything. 100% my "go to" hostel in Stockholm.
This place in the past might have been a great hostel, but it is not kept up. The furniture is tattered in some places. The room I stayed in felt too much like a cave and I could smell smoke from smokers outside the hostel. The layout is all over the place. That being said, the beds are comfortable and bathrooms are clean for the most part. The staff is nice and the location good. It is a pretty average hostel and not remarkable.
I absolutely loved this hostel! My only critique is that breakfast is pretty pricy when the hostel isn't cheap to begin with. Overall really enjoyed this hostel though
My experience here wasn't anything that stands out. It's a good, secure hostel, with decent facilities and comfortable beds. Location is mint!
We loved our stay at City Backpackers! The whole place is kitted out really nicely and looks modern and young without the "party hostel" atmosphere. It was a great place to meet other travellers especially in the big sociable kitchen and common rooms, and the outdoor terrace. Like everywhere in Scandinavia you have to pay extra for breakfast but it's tasty and good value. And the staff are kind and really helpful. I couldn't recommend this place more!

Two out of the three staff twere really friendly and all three were super helpful when it came to directions and places they recommend . Location is excellent, less than a 5 min walk to the main street. The decor of the hostel is awesome and its obviously that someone has an eye for the finer details. Gorgeous cushion, art on the wall and a great display of old fashion cameras. The only thing I didnt like is the fact people who have checked out can hang around until 10pm.
Great hostel. Although having people leave shoes at the entrance in the middle of summer not the best idea, super stinky when you get in. Not having showers upstairs kind of inconvenient. Common areas are great for socializing and rooms are clean and comfortable.
The best week ever, staff are wonderful, fun activities, great facilities.
This place is excellently maintained. Clean, beautifully decorated, with a lot of extra perks like free coffee, free pasta, and sauna. However, it's almost too nice. Everyone just uses their laptops and the iMacs in the common room. There is an almost library feel. I got inquisitive looks every time I spoke. Lots of people looking to stay inside and watch Netflix. Many older guests as well. All staff were really nice and helpful. Very nice hostel, but perhaps a little big for a solo traveler.
This hostel was really good. Perfect for what we needed. The hungering member of staff (can't remember her name) was really friendly and recommended a few places to visit. Overall, a good place to stay in Stockholm.

Just had one bad thing: my reading light was not working since my first night, I informed them on the same day and it wasnt fixed till I left.
It was nice and clean but not very cozy. I feel very safe but the stuff was sometimes not very helpful.
A stylish hostel in a perfect location. Also had travelers in there 30's (like me) which was nice cause I met some interesting people. It's like Fort Knox safe, which electric key combination doors - everywhere!
It is a good hostel overall. However, there are other hostels in stockholm that are good as this one and that are cheaper. The bedrooms are large but the bathrooms are small. There are plenty of living rooms but some of the chairs are torned and broken .They require that the guests walk without shoes but the floor isn't perfectly clean. From 11 pm the guests are required to make silence so it is more confortable to sleep.
Great hostel in a super convenient location. Stay here!
