A great affordable hostel in central Stockholm Mar 22, 2012
City Backpackers aim to make everything easy and having stayed there over 4 days with a couple friends in a trip to Stockholm I can confirm they do exactly that.

They allowed us a very late night check in by providing us with the combination to the room and an envelope with instructions near the closed check in desk explaining exactly where to go to get to our room and everything we needed.

The hostel is a 5 - 10 minute walk from a main train station and the coach station where we arrived from the airport. It's also easily within walking distance of everywhere else we wanted to go in central Stockholm.

We stayed in a 4 bed room sharing with 2 different people over the course of our stay both of whom were very friendly and respectful of sharing the room with strangers.

The staff on the front desk take customer service to a new level. They were very knowledgeable about the city and more than willing to recommend places to go and sights to take in. They also made sorting out our joint bill at the end of our stay quick and easy.

There is free internet access, a free sauna and FREE PASTA?? The rooms were cleaned everyday and there were enough showers and toilets that you never had to wait for anything to be free.

There was an information board of things to do and a communal courtyard where people in the hostel would chat, mingle and make plans on what to do. Although we decided to make our own way around Stockholm the hostel did offer tours and a 'Friday night warm up' to introduce you to some of the cheaper bars in Stockholm which we would have done had we not been shown round by Swedish friends. It's common knowledge that alcohol in Sweden is very expensive.

City Backpackers made sure we had a stress free comfortable stay and we would gladly stay there again when visiting Stockholm again.
