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.

Liked: City Backpackers is the best hostel I've ever stayed at, Great value for money!. The beds are very comfortable and the room is kept at a good temperature overnight. Very safe with good sized lockers. The common areas are great for meeting other travellers. I found all the facilities to be kept very clean. I did the Viking Sauna Tour run by Michael, it was fantastic! don't let the price put you off, it is well worth it. Lastly the staff are brilliant, I had a great experience with everyone I talked to. In particular both of the Daniels, Jaymes and Michael. Thanks for a fantastic stay!

Liked: Exactly how I expect a hostel to be. Clean, modern, comfortable, good facilities, nice staff and great location. Oh and unlimited pasta is always a bonus :Do. I would recommend to others.

Disliked: Maybe another staff member at reception would speed check ins at peak times.

Liked: 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 (fruit, yoghurt, coffee, juice and a waffle for 55SEK). No deposit either.

Disliked: Remember to bring sheets/sleeping bag and a padlock if you want to use the lockers!Unfortunately my experience was ruined by an overwhelmingly and impossibly loud snorer in my dorm - but I cannot put this at the fault of the hostel.
