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 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.

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.

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!
