Fantastically easy to find from the bus / train station. Free tea & coffee, you can call home for free (depending to which country), there's a printer to print boarding passes etc., table football, free pasta...oh yeah - and a sauna!! The atmosphere was a bit more lively than others hostels on our trip - which obviously has it's pros and cons. The breakfast was fantastic - you get to make your own waffles! One of the best places I've ever stayed in!! Definitely recommend / stay again.
Party hostel. Interesting memorabilia decor.
What can I say, the makings of a perfect hostel, good beds, clean, welcoming, walking distance to everything and plenty of options to meet fellow travellers. Very modern and simplistic, my perfect kind of hostel. Thanks for a great stay
Faultless! Had a great time with fellow Kiwis and Aussies!
Good place with interesting decorations. No shoes rule is nice but it seemed like half the people ignored it completely, so prepare to have your socks get dirty.
It was really nice & clean place. A bed is super cosy, I stayed in female 4dorms. If you prefer private than socialize with the other travelers, I highly recommend 4dorms !

It was just perferct! There was free tea all the day, free pasta, free leftover food, excellent conditions to sleep, very helpful saff. Next time I am going to stay there fora much longer period of time! Thank you!
I had a feeling that some other guests were more important than me. I was not treated as friendly as them.
Towels in the kitchen could have been replaced more often! They were dirty and didn't dry any more.

absolutely the nicest hostel i have ever stayed in - the decor was like you were in a boutique hotel- apple computers and vintage cameras on display. decent sized rooms, enough showers so i was never waiting long. only downsides was there was a weird smell all the time in the corridors. also the temperature in the room seemed really up and down, and you might need an eye mask because on our room there was a frosted glass window that let light in. the location was good too
Good hostel over all. They have good common areas to chill and relax.The free pasta is a good way to save some money because food is very expensive in Stockholm. The location wasn't great but only about a 20-30 minute walk to cool areas. Worth the stay.
You won't find a better hostel than this! So much passion gone into the designing of this place, better than most hotels I've stayed at! Awesome no shoes policy downstairs in the living quarters which should be universalised for all hostels! VISIT CITY BACKPACKERS HOSTEL VISIT STOCKHOLM!!
had a blast staying here. met some awesome people. the stay was very helpful with help planning a fun filled day. Very secure and clean. it helps you have to take your shoes off before entering the sleeping/common areas. would definitely recommend. Not too far of a walk from Gamla Stan and other local attractions.
Was quite sick while staying here, so the only thing that put me off were the communal showers and bathrooms, as the ones in our room were being renovated at the time. Other than that, my stay here was awesome. I encountered very helpful staff, and the room I was staying in was kept ridiculously clean. Facilities like the kitchen came in handy, to keep eating a little cheaper. Did I mention the free pasta?! Also met so many lovely people here, giving it a great atmosphere.
Wow, that were some great 4 nights I stayed there. I felt really comfortable and safe. Definitely the best hostel I stayed at so far. Met great people while enjoying the free pasta. The facility is greatly equipped. Wish I would have used the sauna every day of my stay. Only did it on my last evening (an instruction how to use it would be helpful tho. I was sitting there so long until I figured out how to make it hot in there). The only minus I have is the breakfast. A buffet would be better.

I'm travelling around the Europe and this is undoubtedly the best hostel I've stayed. Free pasta, kitchen available, friendly staff, clean rooms, sauna, private showers, computers (iMacs) with free internet access, good wifi connection, luggage room free of charge, central location... The best is the atmosphere, you can talk to people from the whole world until late, and make new friends. I travelled alone, but I felt really comfortable with international people, so make sure you'll stay there.
The best hostel I have ever stayed on, on every level and the only oneI would return to.
Staff are rude & unwelcoming, except Gabriel was cool and helpful. The old guy that checked me in was the worst. I arrived at 8:30pm, there was a pub crawl advertised as leaving at 8, I asked where they went so I could meet up & I would still pay, he said "it's not that kind of thing" WHAT KIND OF THING IS IT? It didnt leave til 10! They also charge for sheets & every little thing. Requested bottom bed in advance, got top bed with no side rail. Not enough showers as there's always a long wait.
