Enjoyed our stay but the man who greeted us, although welcoming, confused us with how the doors worked, where our room was situated and where the facilities were. The hostel is quite a maze. Still a rather central location and close to the central station. Staff not overly helpful when asked what to see and do. I felt like I had to interview them and force the answers out of them.
Stayed here at the end of January in a four bed mixed dorm. Rented towels, bed sheets, bought a padlock, with three nights stay plus two breakfasts cost around 900sek. Lovely helpful staff, gorgeous common room area. The showers are pretty good, the beds are comfy, the breakfast is tasty. I'd stay again in a heartbeat.
Nearly everything was good. Especially the common room deserves a special mention. It is easy to find a friendly group in the common room. One minor negative thing is that, for the price paid, I was expecting a better shower room. It is not bad, but surely it can be improved. Also, it could have slightly bigger lockers, to fit a small backpack in addition to the carry-on luggage.
Great time! Place was very clean and secure. Only issue were bathrooms and showers were a bit far from room and breakfast was not included.
Was a great hostel, very clean and fun activities in a great location of the city!
This hostel is the best I experienced so far: very close to the train station, crazy clean, free sauna, very comfy areas to chill... I met a lot of great people there!
It is ok. It has a sauna, which is a plus. The only bad thing is that if you stay in the female dorm you have to pass through the courtyard to reach the dorm, and this is not very comfortable when the weather is cold, rainy or snowy. Another bad thing about the female dorm is that there is a shower (not a very nice one) but no hair dryer, so if you need to wash and dry your hair you have to go to the main building. Anyway, it is a nice hostel with a friendly staff, and I would recommend it.
Great place to meet fellow travelers. Good location if you like to walk everywhere, which I do. FREE PASTA.
Awesome hostel with the best setup! You have a personal light and power point next to your bed, lockers, fun things to do each day/night at the hostel if you want, or a great location in the city centre to explore from, plenty of freebies, relaxed atmosphere and plenty of awesome fellow travellers to meet. Stockholm is an amazing city too! Absolutely loved my stay here and wish it could've been longer! Pro tip - make the meatballs. (:
Lovely stay as usual. Convenient stay close to the train station.
Charming hostel inspired by the backpacker culture. If you enjoy backpacking through Australia you will love this place.

CBP is an amazing hostel!!! I like the atmosphere so much! The location is pretty good, just a few minutes walk from the central station and most of the attractions. Also the staff there is really friendly and helpful, they did me a big favor helping me with my super heavy luggage. I definitely recommend everyone to choose here during your stay in Stockholm!

Great Hostel. Only thing odd is the extra charge for bedsheets, pillow case and blanket. I suppose this is something common in Sweden. Have stayed in lots of other Hostels and have never been charged for bed linen.Otherwise awesome hostel and really easy to find. Thanks!
Excellent place to stay in Stockholm. Very well located. Clean and cool vibe. Kitchen facilities are very good. Very comfy beds.
Place, location and facilities are good. I arrived late but the staff, even if they sent me an email with all the information, were waiting for me. Very good.
Overall, I was satisfied with my stay at your hostel. I really appreciated being able to use the sauna, although it would be even better if the free sauna hours were more frequent, not only once a week. Also, the free pasta you mention in the advertisement is a little misleading, it rather suggests that there is a pasta bar ready to eat.

Very good location, just a few blocks from the central station. I felt the place was very secure, as there was a code for just about every door in the place. Wi-Fi was good. The staff was very friendly. The pub crawl was also quite fun and a good way to meet others from the hostel. I didn't like that you had to pay for breakfast and linens and towels. For the price, these things should be included. Overall, a great experience and a nice hostel to stay in.
I keep recommending this place to everyone I meet that is heading to Stockholm. It was huge, had loads of space, was the cleanest (and coolest decorated) hostel I've ever stayed in, and was in a prime location just 10 minutes walk from the central station (and metro to everywhere else in the city). I partly just couldn't get over the level of quality this place was rocking. Hostelschmostel, its more like what I want my apartment to look like. Thanks for a brief but lovely stay City Backpackers
Really good hostel. Great atmosphere and facilities. Few things to note: you need a certain sized lock for the lockers in the room (our small lock did not fit), linen is not included and you will have to pay extra and the pub crawl was rubbish, it would have been cheaper and more fun to drink at the hostel.
