We're the number 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 guest rooms. 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 cafe 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!
