  • Good location - 10 minute walk from main train station, 15 from mall, 20 from Old Town. Staff were friendly and helpful, hostel was very very clean, including bathrooms (yay!). It didn't really have a "hostel vibe" as it was very quiet but that may be due to the time of year we were traveling there. Would definitely stay here again :)

  • I booked a twin room, my first reaction was not good when I saw that there was a bunk bed in the room instead of two separate beds. BUT that changed as I slept like a queen! Really comfortable. The staff was really friendly, and the place is super clean and spacious. The location is great - walking distance to the "city center" or if you prefer the metro, the closest station is just a couple of minutes away. I will definitely stay here again!

  • Overall, my husband and I enjoyed our stay at the hostel. It was quite clean with lots of amenities that I did not expect. My only wish is that some of the other people staying at the hostel were more respectful of those who did not appreciate loud noise and drinking parties. Additionally those same people would leave the kitchen a total mess in the evenings. I know that the hostel can't control what happens in the later evening hours, but I did want to share that experience.

  • The City Hostel surpassed all my expectations on a typical hostel. It is more like a hotel - very clean and well-organised. There is a large common area for travelers to interact with one another. Sara, the staff-in-charge was very, very helpful on recommending sights and friendly. Indeed, I couldn't ask for more. All in all, this was a memorable stay. Location wise, it was located near Hotorget which connects to many main attractions such as Gamla Stan, Kungstradgarden etc.

  • Good place to stay over all staff was helpful and friendly. I could walk to all of the attractions and bars from the hostel. Met lots of other travelers in the dorms and kitchen. Had a good group of people to go out with. It was also quiet enough. I had no problem sleeping on nights I stayed in. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Clean, well-organised hostel. They use codes instead of key cards which is nice cause you don't have to worry about losing your key. The lockers were terrible quality though - I used my (Samsonite) padlock and the locking mechanism just slid right past it, so bring a thick padlock, then it should be fine. Staff was friendly but very reluctant to let me stay around the hostel for a little bit after checking out, which I feel should be a basic courtesy to guests.

  • The ONLY negative comment we have is that it was extremely warm and stuffy in our room -- a room for two -- which made the nights a bit uncomfortable. The ventilation and temperature in the building otherwise was just fine, and of course it's hard to please everybody. There just seemed to be no way to get any moving air into the room. Otherwise, everything was exactly as promised , and we had a very pleasant experience there.

  • City Hostel was fantastic! From start to finish I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. It's centrally located and access to public transport and groceries makes it all the more desirable a place to stay. The staff was more than helpful recommending places to see/eat.
