Everything was excellent!

A good deal in hyper-expensive Stockholm. A big, well-run hostel, but doesn't feel big. Easy walk from bus/train station. Supermarket about a 5 minute walk (where you can at least afford potatoes). Hostel bike rental at SEK 50 for 4 hours. (Also municipal bikes available nearby in summer.) Big common kitchen with free pasta. Expect a one-time linen charge.

The location is great, just nearby the central station! Everything was pretty good the only exception were the barhrooms that didn't smell good and this was always. Great for the free pasta and a very good way to separte de fridges by room so you always have enough space and it is clean.

I hostel was great. Really enjoyed my time there. However i found the atmosphere was bit down and the breakfast was a little average but still nice. I like how the lockers are in the room and the kitchen and lounge were beautiful and everything was so clean. I have recommended this hostel to other guest.

We had a single room of only 5sqm and no window. Price was too high for that room! Facility is great! But rooms like that should not be for rental.

Hello, I'm sorry to hear you were not happy with the room. We know a lot of guests prefer rooms with window, and that is why we have made the windowless rooms their own room type, so that you will always know before you book that the room has no window. Also, the price is reduced. Kindly, Ellinor CBP

The hostel is excellent great facilities, and extremely clean. Very comfy beds and clean, quiet rooms. For the price sheets could be included, but other than that you can't fault the hostel, great. Definitely worth the money.

Definitely not regreting my stay at City Backpackers Hostel!! Arrived early and the friendly staff allowed us to checked in and store our luggage! and whats even better, there is free pasta! filled our hungry tummy well when we first arrived! The rooms are clean and the beds are not so shaky (some hostel's bunk beds are damn shaky that I cannot sleep in peace). Had a very very very good night rest that night! Oh and the showers are great! especially with the hair dryer!

Good hostel. Don't think there was too much of at atomosphere unless you were in the kitchen. Very safe and secure though with lots of passwords to remember. Not really sure about paying for sheets tho.

Everything is great about this hostel. There is one improvement that can be made, that is to provide locks for lockers for a deposit.

The security was awesome. Key codes to get into the hostel after hours, and key codes for every room. Lockers in each room also. The staff was awesome. Answered ALL of my questions, very helpful, pointed out good places to see. Also, i lost all my shower stuff, they had some extra shampoo and stuff that they got for me. Claira, was amazing! Great to talk to, very helpful, had some great suggestions! The facilites were good, lots of showers and bathrooms. Very clean hostel!
