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.

Liked: Really easy to find and close to the central train station. Lots of fridge space in the kitchen. Good atmosphere - plenty of places to sit outside the rooms. A few computers, though the internet wasn't that reliable. Supermarket was up the hill from there.

Disliked: That I couldn't stay there for all my 4 nights in Stockholm (I knew this beforehand, btu I wanted to stay there for a couple of nights as I had read good reviews).

Liked: Loved all the common rooms and the style of the hostel. Great location near everything and only 10 mins walk from the train and bus stations.

Disliked: The was no real hostel vibe about it everyone stayed on their mobile phones , Laptops and iPads so it wan't easy to met people. And all events you have to pay for so not many people take part. Also my husband is not a fan of rooms with no windows and this place is completely unground which isn't really mentioned on the website so he found it a bit too much at times.

Liked: I really liked the atmosphere of the hostel, the people were very friendly and the staff was always there to help us to get directions and everything. And another good thing that happened was that they upgraded me to an 6-bed apartment with kitchen, bathroom, etc for FREE :-). I had a really great time in this hostel.

Disliked: The only thing i didn't like that much on the hostel was the breakfast.
