I had a lovely stay at City Backpackers. The linen was fresh, rooms and bathrooms very clean and they serve a very good breakfast which is good value for money too (which is appreciated in a city like Stockholm!). Staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for you. Highly recommended

More than enough showers, put in a room with other solo female travelers, clean and tidy, great kitchen and facilities, good wifi, friendly staff, open and inviting atmosphere, etc, etc, etc. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in, in every way! Highly recommended.

I enjoyed my stay here, the beds were comfortable, the people were friendly and the hostel was super clean. I made some new friends and would stay again if I come back to Stockholm. If you buy breakfast at check in you'll save some money.

This is a great hostel for those who want to see young travelers around and maybe find some new friends. Rooms are pretty big and comfortable and all the area is so large and amazing. The only problem is that the staff may forget to tell you everything you need to know so listen carefully.

well when we arrived the receptionist seemed so confused it already started off weird, theres no social atmosphere in the hostel at all, everyone's super quiet plus lots of older people. The place itself is super nice and clean but we would definitely not come back here. We signed off for the pub crawl expecting them to at least have...

I stayed two times now in this hostel. Never had an issue. It's easy to find, very near to the central station which is always convenient. It's clean and quiet which is important for me. The security system with password for the doors adds a plus to feeling safety. The personnel is very nice and helpful. I'll definitely stay here...
