City Backpackers is the ideal Base Camp for the Stockholm Explorer

If you enjoy meeting new people and having fun, alongside having a warm, comfortable, clean bed, then this is the place to be. Set in a 19th century building, City Backpackers Hostel is centrally located and only 500 meters from Stockholm Central Station and City Bus Terminal. The main shopping street called ‘Drottninggatan’ is just around the corner from the hostel, and all the main city sights such as Old Town (Gamla Stan) are within enjoyable walking distance.

We are open all year and have no curfew. No hosteling card is needed.

Our Social HUB

We have designed our hostel to be a great meeting place, where you are guaranteed to meet travelers from all over the world. We provide opportunities for you to get to know fellow travelers in all our common areas. We have a fully-equipped guest kitchen, lounge areas, a courtyard, a cozy breakfast café in our reception. Why not try out our next door restaurant and bar called ‘Nomad’ by tasting their delicious Swedish food from locally fresh produce and drinks.

Our Tours and Events

We provide tours and events throughout the year, such as guided bike rides and kayak tours during the summer and our awesome Viking Sauna Tour during the winter. We hold live music events and in house activities such as quiz and film nights. How about borrowing a bike or a longboard to explore the City. Our staff loves taking turns showing Stockholm to our guests.

Clean, Comfortable and Secure at CBP

We have different room types to suite all travelers from dormitories, to private rooms and apartments. It’s important to us that we keep a high standard of cleanliness and make sure that you feel comfortable during your stay. Inside our hostel main building we have a no outdoor shoes policy. We ask our guests to please respect the rules and leave your outdoor shoes on the shoe racks when you enter the hallway of the hostel. You are most welcome to bring your own indoor slippers if you do not want to go around with just socks on.

Security is one of our top priorities at the hostel to make you feel safe and secure. There are lockers in all dorm rooms, but if you use them you do need to bring a padlock (medium size) or buy one from us for 50 SEK. We have a luggage storage room usage for our check-in and check-out guests, and we use door codes which we change regularly for safety purposes. A staff member is on hand 24/7 to help out.

When you want to relax, there is a hot sauna which is available for two hours free every evening. You can use our lounge areas to chill out in and comfy sofas in our nice courtyard at your disposal. We have magazines, daily newspapers and a book exchange available. We offer FREE WIFI and computers, FREE pasta (just need to add own sauce), FREE tea and coffee after 11AM every day in our reception, FREE ice-skates and sleighs to burrow to use in our winter parks.

Our yummy breakfast Café is open between 7 to 11 AM on weekdays and between 8 to 11 AM on weekends. We offer a delicious breakfast offer. One breakfast ticket costs only 75 SEK per person per morning.

Cook your free pasta in our fully equipped kitchen; mark your groceries; and keep them in the refrigerators provided. Or if you don’t fancy cooking, then come to the restaurant Nomad next door and try one of their many tasty dishes.

Showers and bathrooms are shared and are included in the price. We also have additional bathrooms, which are non-shared shower cubicles/WC so you can have full privacy. If you are interested in these, just ask our friendly reception staff and we can point you in the right direction. We also have hairdryers for guests to use. Please ask a member of staff when in doubt. We are always happy to help.

You can also do laundry for only 50 SEK. for one wash load – this includes the use of the washing machine, tumble dryer and washing powder.

City Backpackers has an environmentally friendly approach. We practice waste recycling, use electricity from renewable sources, use energy efficient white ware and light bulbs, and have an overall environmental policy. As passionate travelers we love our planet and want to save it!

We have two floors in the hostel. One floor on street level and a bottom floor. Some rooms are with and without windows. All our rooms are well-lit and well air-conditioned. If it troubles you to have a room without a window, then we recommend that you contact us to make us aware. We will try our best to accommodate, but please note that we cannot guarantee that we can give guests always a room with a window.

We hope you have an amazing experience with us!

How to Get There

+46 8 20 69 20
info@citybackpackers.se
City Backpackers Hostel is situated in a 19th century building on the square Norra Bantorget. It’s only about 500 metres from the Central Station and Cityterminalen, the main bus terminal. Find the main entrance to the station, which is on the street Vasagatan. Standing outside the main entrance you take left, and walk Vasagatan for five minutes, until it ends with a nice, big square. Voila - you’ve found us! Our address is Upplandsgatan 2, since Vasagatan changes its name on the other side of the square, but you can’t miss us. Welcome! If you arrive at the airports of Arlanda, Bromma or Skavsta, take the airport shuttle, Flygbussarna, to Cityterminalen. From Skavsta you can either take Flygbussarna or Ryan Airs own buses. From Bromma it takes about 20 minutes to the city centre. From Skavsta you’ll need about 80 minutes. From Arlanda airport you can also choose to take the high speed train, Arlanda Express, to downtown. The train is more expensive than the bus, but it gets you into the city in 20 minutes instead of 40. The airport train terminal in Stockholm is situated at Östra Järnvägsgatan, which is even closer to us than the Central Railway Station and Cityterminalen, about a five minute walk. Most long distance busses stop at Cityterminalen, the main bus station. The best way to the hostel is to take the escalators at the left of the exit at Klarabergsviadukten. They take you to the street Vasagatan. Then you take left and follow Vasagatan all the way to Norra Bantorget (500 meters). The hostel is located in the first building on the other side of the square, where Vasagatan changes name to Upplandsgatan. Our Address: Upplandsgatan 2A
