Staff had poor attitude, location was not prime, atmosphere was lacking, room was pricey
The best hostel I have ever stayed so far. That's all I can say about it.
very comfortable place. they provide lots of things for free.
Great hostel. Although it's large, the common rooms are great so it's easy to meet people. Really good location, easy to walk to the main station, very close to shopping areas and walkable to most other things as well.
As a female solo traveler it was a safe and relaxed place, they screened Swedish films each night at the cafe, which was quite nice of them. The breakfast was good value for money and the facilities clean and organised. Just one minus- the dryers just didn't actually dry the clothes. I paid 50kronas for the washing machine and dryer, which was a bit of a waste as I couldn't pack my clothes dry the next morning. Other than than great place and great people!
Excellent hostel! I travelled alone, and the staff were incredibly hospitable and welcoming. The facilities were amazing, the toilets were really clean, beds were comfortable, and really near main train station. It's also about 10-15 minutes walk from the old town.
Location was close to the train station, but a bit of a walk to Gamla Stan or Sodermalm. Good atmosphere and easy to meet people in the common room or kitchen. Free pasta and ice skates are a bonus!
Great place to be in. Convenient location, friendly staff and a range of facilities all available there. Recommended.
Great looking Hostel. Staff were all very nice. The hostel has a very pleasant feeling about it. I was just there for one night and arrived late at night and nothing was an issue. This provided me with everything that I could want/need from a hostel that, being in the location that it is and being in Stockholm, was as good value to quality ratio that anyone could hope for.

Probably the best place i have stayed until now. Just from the begining the staff is so friendly and always helpful. The hostel is so cosy, taking out ur shoes and entering in like that makes u feel at home and also the atmosphere and the decoration is great! It s so clean and useful!! Definitely i will be back to cbp hostel!!
I absolutely loved this place! I visit stockholm relatively regularly and have stayed in a few hostels, but this one is the best hands down!! A great vibe, awesome friendly staff, huge clean rooms, great common areas to meet people, an awesome kitchen and perfect location! Couldn't really be better, and a good price too!!
This was a great hostel! The location is close to a bus stop, the train station, shopping, and night life. I would definitely book this hostel again.
I have been to the hostel for the 7th time and I just love it. It is so cozy, not far away from the main shopping street, offers great activities to participate in. Just awesome.
Such cool decoration!!! Wished we were there for the community activities, but enjoyed the sauna and the location. A confusing layout but staff is helpful to find your way!!
Great hostel. Atmosphere conducive to meeting people. Space to relax. Swedish meatballs was a good experience, I can recommend it. Breakfast is a reasonable deal also. Wished I bought more breakfast vouchers upon check-in, as it was cheaper. Would stay again.
Style over substance. This place is extremely clean and funky looking but that's all it has to offer. When we arrived the staff knocked off early and left us a key but no sheets. There were no showers on our floor - 2 tiny ones downstairs - no where to hang clothes or get dressed - the shower door opens out to the hallway so you can get dressed in a pool of shower water or walk through the common room in a towel. But your room doesn't have a mirror. Everyone in the common room looks miserable.
It is not good as people rated. I really done like their female bathroom which has no lock and if someone accidentally open the door he/she can see everything inside
Best hostel i've ever been to! If youre staying in Stockholm, just stop looking for places to stay cause this is it. Staff was nice and helpful, everything was very clean, kitchen was a great place to cook and meet people. Everything was in walking distance. If you stay here, do the Swedish meatballs on Wednesday cause its worth the money and its a lot of fun!
Best hostel I've ever beed! Location is a plus, very clean, great atmosphere and the building is just awesome!!
