City Backpackers Hostel Reviews


The #1 choice for travellers visiting Stockholm - voted one of the top 10 hostels worldwide on numerous occasions by guests.

FREE high speed Internet on 6 computers & WIFI in all guestrooms 24h!
FREE pasta! (Though you have to bring the sauce yourself!)
FREE evening sauna! the ultimate Swedish experience!
FREE fresh coffee & tea!

We are a 'not-too-big' and environmental-friendly hostel with a familiar atmosphere. The location is the best possible in the city centre - safe and quiet, although it's only a 500 meter walk from the Central Railway & Bus Station. Many of the city's sights, including the Old Town, can be found within walking distance and the main shopping street, Drottninggatan, is just around the corner.

You can stay in a room with 2, 4, 6 or 8 beds (please note that 2-bedded rooms can normally only be booked directly through the hostel). Female dorms are provided.
Note: Sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers are a must-have and in case you do not bring you own, you will have to rent them for 50 SEK. If you bring a sleeping bag, you will need to rent a sheet and a pillow case for 25 SEK or - of course - bring your own.

We also have a private studio for up to 6 people with bathroom, shower and kitchen.

We have two fully-equipped guest kitchens within the hostel and also many restaurants/breakfast options in the neighbourhood. When you want to relax there is a hot sauna and lounge areas with satellite TV and daily newspapers available. We have quite a lot common areas to hang out and meet other travellers. Every night is movie night when we show a popular Swedish film. We also have table tennis + Trivial Pursuit in a dozen different languages.

For your security there are lockers both inside and outside the rooms (bring a padlock or buy one for 25 SEK in the reception!). Before you check in or after you have checked out you can keep your luggage in our luggage room. The hostel also keeps a nice courtyard at your disposal.

City BackPackers has an environmental-friendly approach and is working on getting the EU eco-label for accommodation (the flower). This includes among other: waste recycling, electricity from renewable sources, energy efficient whitewares and light bulbs, no smoking and an environmental policy.

City BackPackers is open 365 days a year and has no curfew. No hostel membership is needed.

The bar/restaurant next door normally has special food-and-drink-offers for all hostel guests.

Please note that you must book for
a minimum of 2 nights at the weekend if one night is Friday or Saturday. Please note should you need to, you should cancel a booking 24 hours before
