"Lovely big and airy rooms, with plenty of space for your luggage. The deck outside and common room & kitchen downstairs were great to hang out in. Free pasta to cook - excellent! Decent breakfast on offer at the cafe…"

Liked: There was a great vibe in the hostel. The rooms were secure, with big lockers for you bags, and with the free pasta in the kitchen, everyone would cook and there were plenty of people to talk to. There was a no-shoe policy, so the place was very clean.

Disliked: The fact that you had to rent linen. Most other places would supply it.

Liked: close to station, nice kitchen and good social areas and wifi

Disliked: the staff often took ages to answer questions because they were busy with other people but it seemed like really they were just chatting to their friends as they people they helped werent staying at the hostel. More powerpoints in the dorm rooms it lead to animosity in the room if things got unplugged to charge. dont like paying for linen

Liked: This hostel is awsome! It is really central and most important things are within walking distance. It was easy to get to know new people because there are many activities offered by the hostel. I always felt comfortable and I will come back in summer!

Disliked: Maybe there could be a wider choice of breakfast. But for this price it was quite good.

Liked: City Backpackers Hostel was the nicest hostel i've ever stayed at. While everything in Stockholm is pricey for the non-nordic traveller at the hostel I felt like it was money well spent. The hostel is very clean, the common spaces are many and well maintained and though I didn't end up using the kitchen it looked great. The sauna is a major bonus! Make sure to use it while you're there. The free hours in the evening are good but its probably worth the 50 crowns an hour if you get a few people together.

Disliked: JAMES left no negative feedback.

Liked: Everything, there is a friendly vibe between travellers, the guy at reception first night went out of his way to make sure I knew where everything was, free coffee, tea and pasta and printing for plane/bus tickets is a plus. And fairly central location. I have been travelling around the world for more than a year now and this is one of the best hostels I've visited. Not enough of complaint that it deserves to be a dislike, but the wifi can be a bit patchy, but there is 7 different connections so just search around.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: City Backpackers was a good hostel that was well organized and informative. The location was not bad because it was close to main streets and very close to the central station. The rooms are large with many people but it was a fun way to meet people. The bathrooms were pretty gross. The private showers offered were nice. The kitchen is a nice asset to have while travelling! We would go back to this hostel in Stockholm!

Disliked: The bathrooms were dirty.
