Hostelworld says

Hostelworld users have voted City Backpackers the best hostel in Sweden every year since 2010, and it's not hard to see why. They offer tons of little extras, such as free pasta, free ice skate rental in the winter and a free evening sauna 365 days of the year and they have movie nights. There's also heated floors in the showers, free use of computers and security codes on all doors. Hostelworld guests have praised the attentive staff and their weekly specials, including their traditional Swedish meatball dinners and in the winter their unique Viking Sauna tour. We like their 'no shoes' policy!

Property Description

We're the №1 choice for travelers visiting Stockholm - voted the best hostel in Sweden 2019 by Hostelworld guests.

We've got free high-speed internet on our computers (Mac and PC) and free WIFI in all guestrooms. There's free pasta to cook (make your own sauce) and free evening sauna times (the ultimate Scandinavian experience). We have bike rental up to 8 hours. We also have free ice skates and saucer sleighs to burrow in the winter time!

City Backpackers is the base camp for the Stockholm explorer. If you like meeting new people, you'll have the time of your life here.

The location is the best possible in the city centre - safe and quiet, although only a 500 metre walk from the central railway station and bus terminal. Most of the city's sights, including the Medieval area Gamla Stan (Old Town) can be found within walking distance, and the main shopping street, Drottninggatan, is just around the corner.

You can stay in a single or twin room, or a dorm with three, four, five, six, eight, eleven or 12 beds. Female dorms are provided. We also have three apartments/studios for up to eight people with private bathroom, shower and kitchen. Please note that you must be at least 18 years old to stay in our dormitory rooms.

City Backpackers is designed to be a great meeting place, where you are guaranteed to meet travelers from all over the world. We have several common areas where you can hang out with fellow travelers: a large, fully-equipped guest kitchen, a courtyard, a cosy breakfast café and a restaurant and bar called 'Nomad'.

Our staff takes turns showing Stockholm to our guests. All year we arrange tours and adventures, such as guided bike rides and Kayak tours in the summer and our awesome Viking Sauna Tour in winter.

When you want to relax there's a hot sauna and lounge areas with satellite TV, daily newspapers and a book exchange available. There's also a nice courtyard with comfy sofas at your disposal. Smoking is allowed in parts of the yard, but nowhere else.

City Backpackers has an environmentally friendly approach. We practice waste recycling, use electricity from renewable sources, use energy efficient white ware and light bulbs, and have an overall environmental policy. As passionate travelers we love our planet and want to save it!

City Backpackers is open 365 days a year and has no curfew. No hostel membership is needed.

We can't wait to see you, welcome to Stockholm!

    Incredible Hostel. There's a sauna, incredible shower water pressure, plenty of clean and stocked bathrooms, a small bar that encourages interactions with locals and travelers, and the staff is incredibly kind and accommodating.

    Excellent location with easy walks to old town and main attractions. I liked the security of door codes and the facilities were clean, spacious and useful to have a kitchen with lots of storage. Staff were really friendly and helpful when I arranged to stay an extra night.

    I had a short stay at City Backpackers but it was comfortable enough. There were heaps of social / relaxation areas, a nice bar and the kitchen was huge. The only annoying thing is that there is no room for larger bags in the dorms so they have to be stored in the corridors. A very friendly and social atmosphere, both with staff and other guests.

    Fabulous

    The Hostel has a great location, very close of everything in downtown. It is very clean, however I say excessive hair in the shower floor. The Hostel has a policy of not use shoes inside the living rooms (bedrooms, computer rooms, kitchen, bathrooms and toilets, etc.) what I didn't like, I know that keeps everything cleaner although I don't like to go to common toilets without shoes. There are lockers inside my room, but I could not lock it because it requires only big padlocks.

    Great hostel and nice location. The staff is very friendly (the guy in the reception spoke all languages and makes you feel at home). I felt really safe with the door code changing every day. I just didn't get why isn't the bed linen included in price if it's compulsory to rent it in the reception, but ok, it's not that expensive.

    A very busy Hostel in a great location. This is certainly not a chill out place. While I met some nice fellow travelers here, I did miss the warmness of place or welcoming of the stuff. The hostel is in a basement and first floor, I only have seen window at the front desk. Overall, it is a safe bet for a weary backpacker.

    Such a unique hostel - loved the decor and the sauna especially!! Unfortunately the rooms don’t have luggage sized lockers in, so I had to leave my bag out in a corner. Not the end of the world, but the dorm wasn’t very spacious so this would have been inconvenient if the room was full. The noise in the kitchen could be heard very clearly from our room as well, even after the 11pm noise cut off - not ideal!

City Backpackers Hostel says

I think we have the coolest guests! This is the only hostel in Stockholm with young, international travellers as the main target group. Little old ladies from small Swedish towns can be lovely, sure, but if you want to meet backpackers and young independent travellers like yourself, City Backpackers is the best choice. Our kitchen is a great place to meet people, since the pasta is free, and during dinner time everyone hangs out in the kitchen to cook.
Every day of the week we organize at least one event to make it easier for our guests to meet and make new friends. Either there\'s a guided tour, picnic or adventure, or there will be a cooking session in the hostel, or game night, or movie night. We also have the free sauna every day, a great place to relax and enjoy the company of like-minded people from all over the world. There's just no other place with an atmosphere like this in Stockholm - it feels like staying in a friend's apartment. Basically, this place is perfect for independent young people travelling alone or in a small group, keen to get to know new people, curious about new places and up for adventure!
There's so many cool places in Stockholm it's impossible to narrow it down to just one, but if you only have one day in Sweden, I always recommend Skansen. It\'s a crossover between museum, park and zoo, and walking around for a day really gives you a feeling of what Sweden is all about. In our neighborhood, upper Drottninggatan is a must. It\'s a shopping street with some great cafés and the best vintage shop in town - Beyond Retro. Joakim, Manager
