Very nice, friendly hostel with very clean and good size rooms and all the facilities you could need. Only minor areas where they could improve would be to fix the driers and maybe have the beds higher off the ground if possible so you can slot luggage under them but these are little things. I really enjoyed my stay and would go again.

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.
Stayed in a 4 bed dorm this time around, which I preferred. The room was better suited for a female occupant with a lighted mirror and hooks for jackets/towels/etc. There was a large window, which allowed for a lot of natural light as opposed to a dungeon feeling (which I detest). The bathrooms were clean for the most part, but it depends on which toilet and shower you use. However, it does seem to me that they don't fix things like toilet seats even if you let them know about it.
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.
I loved this hostel! It was right next to the Central Station, perfect location to get to everything. The staff was really cool and friendly, the place has a really good set up and the decor is great. The communal areas are really nice and allowed me to meet a lot of good people! The outdoor area is also great. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to friends! Thanks :)
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.
