It was the first time for me in a hostel with commonly shared showers and toilets. Apart from isolated incidences where people simply can't clean up behind themselves, the entire facility was exceptionally clean! Thanks for a really nice stay in this hostel!

Not very clean mainly the kitchen (dishes and tables dirty). The showers were ok but could be more clean (floor).

Excellent hostel! Almost half self-service, very interesting. Walking distance to city center. Supermarkets nearby. Very clean and quiet. Definitely recommending it!

it is an ok hostel, no exceptional but not bad. Location is the best, as it is 5-8 minutes from the coach station, 10 minutes from the train station (if you plan a day trip to upssala), 15 minutes to City Hall (if you plan to catch a ferry to visit Birka, the first Viking town island) and 20 minutes walking to the old town. There is a 7 eleven literally next door, but I recommend you to look for other supermarkets as this one is 25% more expensive than other in the old town or train station area

WE're happy to here you were happy with the location. Very helpful information you point out too. Cheers! A good option to 7eleven is the grocery store 7eleven that is within 2 min walking distance. // Staff

The hostel is superbly located, which Central Station just a short walk away and stores all around it, for convenience. Staff are very friendly and seem to care about you as a person and not only as a paying customer. There's a lighthearted, common ground atmosphere. The facilities have everything you can possibly need and some more. I spent one week in City Hostel and didn't have one bad experience from my time, there. If you feel unsure about which hostel to choose, I'd say this is a safe bet

I will never go to any other hostel again. This place was perfect. I was welcomed beautifully and related to well. I felt right at home. The kitchen was all accommodating and it all felt cozy and like a home away from home. I had a private room, it was very small but not too small. Room enough to walk around. Very clean and decorated well. I couldn't be happier with my stay. I even left and came back the same night for another night. Thank you so much city hostel!!!!

Overall I was satisfied with the hostel. It was close to the Central bus terminal which makes travel to Arlanda airport quite easy. The hostel was quite far in comparison to the sights to see around Stockholm. It you plan to walk around it could be tiring. The hostel was clean and tidy with a nice quite atmosphere. I would have liked if there were more activities and opportunities to meet other guest with nights out or events planned around the City.

I liked the very friendly staff and the location as it is not very far from the central. The rooms are ok (maybe a little dark) and clean. What I really did not like was the fact that you have to pass the kitchen and living room on the way to the showers...

Owner Comment (Hide)
Cheers for leaving your opinion! You are right, for some rooms you need to pass those areas to get to the shower, but you do have toilets close by :-) //Staff

Great location, and a nice hostel. It is a big hostel so the kitchen can be crowded during peak hours. But the rooms are clean and access is via a code which is nice. Only complaint is that the shower rooms do not have a drain inside the stall (the drains are on the outside of the stall) and this can mean the stall doesn't wash off perfectly and clothes can get a bit wet. Remember to bring sheets, or you will have to rent.

It is a good location and nice to stay with. A bit expensive if you have to rent the linen.

The kitchen was very dirty all the time. They should include the price of the sheets in the night rate.

Staff was friendly and helpful and also added some great funny jokes. It was no problem to leave the luggage before check-in and pick it up later after check-out while walking around the town. Really close to walk to the center and public transportation stops are near the entrance. Totally worth the value! We're staying in 3-bed private room and there was enough room for us.

The hostel is not far from the train station/bus terminal so it's easier to travel to other destinations or for sightseeing. Room is clean, as well as the shared toilets and bathrooms. Even you can listen to the music while being inside the toilets. The atmosphere is quite relaxing, and it's quiet in the night, although sometimes you can hear people walking around in the corridor. The shared kitchen is also good. Tea and coffee is available for free. You can put your own food in a fridge.
