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.
Our Social HUB
We have designed our hostel to be a great meeting place, where you are guaranteed to meet travellers from all over the world. We provide opportunities for you to get to know fellow travellers in all our common areas. We have a fully-equipped guest kitchen, lounge areas, a courtyard, a cosy 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.

City Backpackers has an environmentally friendly approach
To avoid unnecessary laundry we encourage our guests to bring their own bed-linen, but if you would like to rent from us, it is possible. We also practice waste recycling, use electricity from renewable sources, use energy efficient white ware and light bulbs, and have an overall environmental policy. As passionate travellers we love our planet and want to save it!
