Not much choice of breakfast foods. A very limited range of things were included in the standard package. Other hostels offer more of an open buffet style for the same price.
Can't fault this hostel. It was the last visit on our 6 months trip after around 20 hostels and certainly finished with a bang. There has been a huge amount of though go into decorating this place with a really clear theme in mind. Love the cheap breakfast, the sauna, the many lounge/common rooms and the excellent kitchens. Met many cool people here and to be honest this hostel has the highest security out of any we visited through Europe. Highly recommended.
Great place, one of the best hostels I've stayed
Best hostel I've stayed at. The free pasta was great for if you're on a budget, the ability to rent a bike right at the hostel was awesome, and the social atmosphere was my favorite part. Every night people would be talking to each other—you couldn't leave there without making at least one friend. The staff were very friendly and eager to help, & the location was nice as well—across from a beautiful park and not too far from a main shopping avenue and liquor store. I'd definitely stay again!
Great hostel with friendly staff

One slightly unfriendly lady in the staff when checking in, but other than that it's a great hostel
The 2 male staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful, not just to me but went out of their way to make other guests comfortable and informed. Showers/toilets that I used were always cleaned. upon my arrival, girl at reception informed me there were no pillow cases "you'll just have to put your sheet over that too" actually was an inconvenience- I wasn't even told I can pick one up the following day when more available.
Very good hostal. The location is perfect and the facilities are very good. I totally recommend to stay in this hostel
Great hostel, was very well fitted out with very good facilities. It's a bit tedious with the daily rotating series of security codes to get in, and was a bit quiet when I visited, but otherwise, the place was great and in a very convenient location.
Good hostel. Nice location, free tea throughout the day and pasta. The only complaints I have are breakfast isn't included and wasn't worth buying, the free sauna doesn't get very hot, and they don't include bed sheets in the price.
Great location! The hostel itself was nice. I enjoyed the atmosphere and made a few friends! I arrived on Friday and was surprised to see that there were no pub crawls or any kind of activity but a breakfast thing at 1am... Need more nightly activities to meet more people!
First ever hostel and this place definitely set high standards for all the rest! It's a short walk from the train station so very conveniently located. Staff were super friendly and they had daily events such as movie nights and the Swedish meatball experience. I was a solo traveler and met so many people that I still keep in contact with, loved it here!
We had a lovely stay at city backpackers. The staff were very friendly and the facilities were great and clean. Our room was also very nice and there were a lot of areas to hang around.
There's a really good atmosphere in the hostel! We got to know many people by sitting in the room next to the dorms. And we especially loved the Meatball Experience! They turned out to be wonderfully delicious and it was so fun to cook with all those people! The sauna saved our lives! One day, when it was really rainy and so cold, we walked a lot and returned to the hostel, totally freezing! The heat of the sauna was the best thing ever that day! Only the kitchen could be more filled!
One of the best hostels I have ever been to. There is a great atmosphere in the hostel and the design is really cool. The staff is really nice(with exception of the one girl) and the toilets are clean.

All around great hostel. First stop on a two month trip across Europe was an amazing way to start the trip. Met some really great people that were great fun to go out with - didn't make it home before 4 AM both nights. Location is terrific, maybe a 7 minute walk from the train station and centrally located near some really great shopping and cafes. Very busy so make sure to book your stay ahead of time. Thanks for everything, Stockholm is amazing!!! Cheers!!
Awesome place. Great people. Great nightlife not too far away
This hostel was a great first hostel experience! It's a great place to meet other solo travelers. Their community kitchen encourages an environment for you to cook and meet other people. It was incredibly easy to meet people here! They have great areas to hangout. The hostel was very clean and the beds are comfortable. It's also in a prime location from the city terminal, so easy to walk to in a short amount of time. Highly recommend!
I stayed four nights at the female dorm. At the moment the enclosed bathroom was put of order due to renovation. But the private showers were nearby and clean.
