  • Very pleasant stay! The Swedish meatball event and Viking Sauna Experience were excellent - both HIGHLY recommended - and the facilities were clean and comfortable. Staff was always very friendly. The code system for door locks worked really well and it was nice not to have to worry about keys. Effort could go into keeping the bike tires well-inflated since the pump never seemed to be around, but other than that, excellent experience.

  • It was a fantastic experience at the CityBackParker Hostel. I had a wonderful time meeting new friends, enjoying the kitchen and free pasta, evening sauna, evening movies etc.

  • My sister and I loved this hostel so much that every place we stayed at on the rest of our trip was a complete letdown! This is a hostel you'll want to hang out at and you can take advantage of the many tours, activities and amenities they offer to get more out of your visit to Stockholm. Loved the bicycle tour and the lounges most of all. Our room and the whole complex was charming and decorated like a hipster's dream.

  • Most of the staff (except for one person) was very very nice. I wish they gave me a complete tour though - I never knew about the downstairs kitchen area with pasta nor that the breakfast area opens at night for gathering.

  • Best hostel I've ever stayed in. And this is in the context of having been in hostels in 83 countries. Felt like a 5 Star hotel. Great staff, awesome location, and incredible property. Can't say enough.

  • The fittings and furnishings make it feel more hotel than hostel. A really Nice place. It's a shame the guy running the pub crawl put a blatant limit on the amount of guys he would take with him. Didn't appreciate the lack of effort from the staff member.

  • It was a shame that I was only there on a long layover on my way to Athens. The hostel is in a fantastic location, right near the main terminal. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, and there were excellent facilities for hanging out and meeting people. Also, it was definitely cost-effective given that everything in the city itself is SO EXPENSIVE, and this is a New Yorker talking. :) Would definitely go back if I ever find myself in Stockholm again.
