City Backpackers Hostel, Stockholm

City Backpackers Hostel, Stockholm

Finding cheap accommodations in Scandinavia is kind of hard, especially in big cities like Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen; this was the reason I decided to book a hostel in Stockholm.

The 19th century building is conveniently located in front of a beautiful square, it is a ten minute walk to the main bus terminal, and a 15 minute walk to the city center.

I arrived there early in the morning so I had to leave my luggage in a storage room and come back later to check-in. This first moment at the hostel I realized that this award-winning place was very organized. They gave me two passcodes, one to enter the building, and another to access the luggage room. They told me that I had to take off my shoes when I entered the building that allowed access to the rooms and also that the passcode changed daily. The receptionist also suggested that I buy a coupon for breakfast during the check-in because it would be cheaper than to buy it later and this is what I did.

The staff was very helpful and I also used the hotel’s Skype to make free calls. The price is a little higher than hostels one finds in countries like Spain, Portugal and Italy; I paid around US$35.00/night. There are computers with free Internet to use in the lobby and free Wi-Fi in the whole building.

There is also a great open space area with benches, tables, chairs and umbrellas for socializing and a café area where the breakfast is served. The paid breakfast includes a bowl with fruit, yogurt, bagels or sandwiches and tea or coffee.

When I stay in hostels I always book shared rooms with no more than four beds. My room at City Hostel Backpackers was a mixed dorm with two bunk beds of a decent size and also quiet and clean. To access the room a passcode is also required.

There are private and collectives bathrooms, clothes washers and drying machines (I did my laundry there), a sauna and a huge kitchen with small fridges with the name of your room on it.

This hostel is a terrific option for anyone who wants to save money with accommodations in Stockholm, to get a good night-sleep and also to reach most of the attractions without using public transportation.
