Liked: Extremely friendly and helpful staff, clean, comfy beds, good facilities, everthing works, central location, lots of common areas, nice vibe, cool setting. Couldn't ask for much more from a hostel really, definitely one of the best I have ever stayed at!

Disliked: Unfortunately the courtyard was out of action due to construction, though to be honest the weather wasn't the best for spending time in it anyway.

Liked: Great location, not far from the main train and bus station, and also near to the main shopping area. It was also good that they had staff on duty most of the time, so that there was some control in the hostel (not like some other hostels in Stockholm where the staff are only there a few hours a day). So City Hostel was much better. It is also very clean and has a good number of toilets and showers.

Disliked: There is nothing really bad here, just minor things that could be improved (like fewer beds in the dorm rooms. Basically it is a well run hostel with little to dislike.
