Great staff and atmosphere! Lots of fun things put on by the hostel! The free pasta in the kitchen is amazing and helps save tons of money in a very expensive city! Only complaint is that the showers aren't ventilated well and there is also no barrier to keep the water from spreading on the floor...which together makes it hard to keep your clothes for the day dry. Otherwise only positives! Great hostel!

Great hostel. with a lot of activities for ther guests. they have different meeting chill out area s to hang out and meet people. a nice sitting area outside, inside the hostel. the located is in walking distance to to centre and centrel station Rooms and showers where good too
I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The staff were all super friendly. This hostel has a different design in the interior than I am not used to. It is a bit of a maze to find your room, however once you have done it there is no problem. This hostel is a shoe free hostel meaning you leave your shoes in a common area and walk through the hostel in your socks or bare feet. Amenities were very good, and there are several places to socialize with other travelers. I would definitely stay here again.
Unbelievably great place to stay if you want to save money and like other people.

A great place to stay in central Stockholm. I would definitely stay here again :)
Great hostel with really friendly staff. Bathrooms are clean and modern with good showers. Really nice room and the kitchen was fantastic. Each room is allocated a fridge so there is space for food. There is lots of space to chill out and wifi was great. Location isn't too bad as it takes about 15 minutes to walk to the main centre areas. Codes for all the doors is a clever idea and makes the hostel safe. Only issue is remembering all of them! Would stay here again when returning to Stockholm!
Really good Hostel and the location, staffs were very helpful and was easy to find out about the things that we wanted to do. Very clean, safe and facilities are great, overall I enjoyed my stay at backpackers hostel and would happily recommend it to anyone.
Hands down best hostel in Stockholm. Everything is set up to make sure you have a good time, not just somewhere to crash. Special mention for "Bike Mike" and his madcap bike tour - highly recommended!
Can't say enough good things about this hostel! You must stay here! Met the best people, great wifi, it's clean, and in a central location. Doesn't get much better than this
Good location of hostel, ten minutes from the train station. Nice seating area for the evenings however rooms backing onto this are noisy as a result. Comfy beds, lights and plugs at each bed. Small-ish lockers in rooms. Range of events during the week but these aren't cheap. Not many showers for the number of people, and these are tucked away downstairs. Nice kitchen. Good wifi throughout. Free tea and coffee in reception. Decent breakfast - not cheap but quite good value. Yummy cinnamon buns!
Backpackers is great, staff are very friendly and helpful. The hostel is very secure although you do have a lot of security codes to remember! The facilities are great - they offer free pasta so if you're on a budget you can cook in the hostel kitchen (which is well equipped). The location is good - located at the top of the main shopping street in the city however you may find you spend most of your time towards the old town/sodermalm which is a 15 -20min walk.

This is a great Hostel in central Stockholm. A short walk from Central train station, it has everything you need. Good facilities, common areas, helpful advice and a friendly social atmosphere.
Super clean, excellent wifi, free bike rental, & lovely outdoor space. Great kitchen with unlimited free pasta + entire fridges & shelves of free food left by previous travelers. Very secure with code access that changes daily. Nicely decorated. Atmosphere is not the best -there is no bar likely due to crazy high alcohol prices, so there is no real common gathering place to socialize. Check-in desk was swamped constantly, always long wait times. They should add a second worker to the front desk.
Ildi and Katarina were awesome!!
Worth for the money spent. Will recommend anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Stockholm.
not the best atmosphere but facilities and free pasta was good
Fantastic hostel in a great location, not far from the train and bus stations and the main sights. The staff were helpful, the hostel was always clean, and there was a good atmosphere with lots of people hanging out in the common areas. Highly recommended.
Beautiful hostel, many common rooms, very organized and clean, great vibe and helpful staff. One of the best hostels i've been at :)
CBH is decent enough with a nice common area, good kitchen facilities and nice enough rooms. Check out was somewhat flexible too! Good location, not far from the centre. Could do with a bar to improve the atmosphere but I'd stay again!
