Could definitely use some more, and better, hang out spaces. But on the whole it's pretty good, especially with such a central location. Nice kitchen, but only about 12 chairs and not very cosy atmosphere for eating.

We spent two nights in there. The place is really cosy, the personnel kind and helpful, clean, equipped kitchen, computers, free drinks and food in the night, definitely more than you can look for in a hostel. If going back to Stockholm again, I would choose the same place to stay. Although one thing we didn't expect is that you...

As a solo traveller I'm always looking for hostels that create the best environment to meet new people, I'm not necessarily bothered about facilities or quality of the rooms however this hostel had the whole package. The best things City Backpackers offers are the common areas, of which it has two, the kitchen and FREE coffee, tea and pasta (nice...

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...
