City Backpacker's hostel made our trip to Stockholm much much better. The atmosphere was great, each night we were eating, drinking and making friends with everyone in the common room and the kitchen. Free pasta was a plus, facilities were clean, common rooms were comfy, kitchen was well-equipped. Breakfast was a bit overpriced (like everything in Sweden) so I'd recommend going by the grocery store and getting stuff to make your own.

Hello! Thank you for your review. Im really glad to here you had a good time and made new friends here, that is just what we want! As for the breakfast, I agree that prices in general are high in Stockholm, but our offer is among the cheapest in the area. And you are always welcome to use our kitchen to fix your own breakfast, we have a great supermarket just 5 minutes up the street. Kinldy, Ellinor CBP

The only odd thing about this otherwise really awesome hostel is that you have to pay for sheets and towel but they providing all your other bedding supplies. Free pasta was awesome, also take note of free food in one of the 10 fridges they have. The kitchen was a bit too noisy to me sometimes so I found more solace in my room. I liked the code system of getting into the room instead of having to use a key. Having access to the free evening sauna was awesome. Their cleaning staff is on point!

Bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner, but rooms and kitchen were clean. Free pasta was awesome. It's a nice hostel, lots of hang out space, would go back.

I had chosen it because I needed to pay with credit card. When I arrived they said that their poster wasn't working and didn't allow me to check and asked me to go to an ATM to find cash and return. Then after doing all that and finally checked in, they didn't have time to tell me what to see in the city. Denifenitly not coming back.

Hello, I'm sorry to hear about your bad experience at CBP. We had a problem in our whole buildning with the internet company that delivers our connection. We did all we could to fix it, but had to wait until they could find the problem in their end. This affected the card machine and the phone, and due to this emergency the reception had less time than normal to give advice to the guests. We appologize for not living up to the standard we normally have... Kindly, Ellinor CBP

I had a great stay at this hostel. In honesty I wasn't in much so I probably didn't get the full vibe of the place but I can't imagine anything else than that it would only get better. One of the best things with this hostel compared to others I've visited is that there is an abundance of both toilets and showers, didn't have to wait in cue a single time.

Good hostel. They are more expensive than advertised though. Charge you for linen and the breakfast isn't a buffet. You get yogurt and then an option between a waffle, cereal, or a sandwich. 1 glass of orange juice or coffee.

Very near the center of everything, in a beautiful area. Short walk from the bus station that brings you from the airport. Lovely facilities and staff very helpful as well.

10 minute walk from the central train station. Location was great. Staff was very helpful and nice. Being charged for linen rental was a bit unusual but everything else was perfect.

This was an amazing place! Really easy to meet other friendly travelers, super modern, clean, friendly staff and guests and the free pasta was a life saver in such an expensive city! Would recommend it to anyone, certainly one of the best hostels I've stayed at.

This is a very well run hostel. The staff try their best to accommodate all requests from guests. The atmosphere was good but could be better - I think perhaps more nightly social events should be organised. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

City Backpackers has set a very high standard for hostels – my stay there was definitely a highlight of my week away :)

Enjoyed my stay at City Backpackers Hostel in Stockholm during March. The security is sometimes too good (too many doors to lock and unlock on your way to the shower, for example) but the location is very great and atmosphere was ok! I tend to prefer smaller hostels but here you could get some privacy too.
