“CityHostel, Stockholm”
Reviewed 5 September 2010

we arrived cityhostel in the early evening.
it's a very big hostel. we were 3 friends so the room was a bit small for us, clean linen and showers.
no windows from the rooms, it feels like you are in a basement.
the kitchen is very big and covers most of your basic needs.
many friendly people there, free internet zone.
there is a seven - eleven right outside the hostel, try to avoid buying there, because they are pretty expensive.
the cityhostel is pretty cheap, and basic!

Stayed August 2010, travelled with friends

Reviewed 12 July 2007

This cramped place, located in a basement, is infested with bedbugs. There were so much of them you could see them crawling around during daytime. Of our group of 12, three person were heavily bitten and became quite ill. The emergency number was not working when we tried it several times, and the owners extremely difficult to get hold of. Because one of our group spoke Swedish and knew his way around the authorities, we could eventually issue some threats that gave us a room in another part of the building and a partial refund, and it seemed they did try something with poison.
However, I have doubts whether these measures were really adequate to kill the bugs. Therefore, I would like to strongly advise all travelers not to stay in this place.
If you've already had the misfortune of staying there, you'll have to desinfect your luggage by either steam treating it, freezing it for 48 hours at -20 degr.C or poisoning the bugs with 0.25% permethrin/0.05% tetramethrin, as well as wash all your clothes at 60 degr C.
By the way there were also may rooms without any daylight, and no windows that could be opened at all, and only 2 toilets on ~50 beds, far too little!

  • Liked — It was quite close to the central station, and parkong wasn't too expensive
  • Disliked — Bedbugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We want to inform everyone who reads this review that the hostel has a new owner and the issue with the bed bugs you can read about here is not excisting anymore. Additionally all beds have been replaced with brand new mattresses (hotel standard in the private rooms) .

The number of toilets are 9, not 2. I might seem few, but it hasn't really been any problem.

If you have any concerns feel free to contact us! :-)
