Great hostel for many reasons. The location is great, an easy walk from the train station when you arrive, plus it's not far from all attractions and many restaurants and bars. The room (8 bed doom) was huge, and included lockers, a couch and hanging space. Lots of space to relax and socialise, or have your own space if you...

Loved this hostel seems a bit pricey but all of stockholm is. We stayed in 12 bed but it wasnt a problem. We had a comfy sleep and enjoyed meeting new friends! Free sauna and free ice skates. Really enjoyed our time there

Staying at CBP was a great experience - the hostel is very suitable for staying with frinds or alone thanks to presence of common areas where you can always hang out with other guests. The staff were always friendly and helpful and were glad to give us advice about local clubs/pubs and just things to see in Stockholm.

I did a four day trip to Stockholm and stayed in the City Backpackers hostel. What I really liked is there security system with two codes for entering the hostel and entering your room, which provided safety for my luggage. Also I was in a 8-bed bedroom, but I felt like I am by myself. So overall really nice stay...

I was there only for one night but they were very welcoming! Nice and relaxed personnel who shows you around, because the building is a maze in the beginning. Large kitchen with all necessary utensils. Beds were good and the sanitair was clean. Would definitely stay here again if I would visit Stockholm again!
