City Backpackers Hostel, hotel in Stockholm

This hostel is set in a 19th-century building, 1640 feet from Stockholm Central Station and 5 minutes’ walk from Drottninggatan shopping street. WiFi internet, evening sauna and pasta are free.

It’s designed sort of like a maze in a very fun way. Our room was facing the street and it was okay for 2 people. Having passcodes in each code on each door that changes everyday increased the feeling of security, considering it’s a hostel. Location was convenient

Common kitchen, cleanliness and staff were insanely nice, especially Andreas. Door code, which is good cus you don’t have to carry a keycard. But can be challenging to remember the number at first. However, after a few use, the code just memorized in your head :D

Nomad Cave, hotel in Stockholm

Just 10 minutes’ walk from Stockholm Central Station, this eco-friendly hostel offers free WiFi. Facilities include a guest lounge with a microwave and fridge.

I loved how cozy it is in the inside! The staff was sooo friendly and helpful with any request, and the place was so clean and warm. There are board-games and various spaces to chill; a tv in front of some sofas and also they organize themed-evenings to allow people to get a good time even if they are travelling alone. The FCC acilities are all efficient and kept clean. The bed is also very comfy, as when you get there at first, your bed is provided with any kind of sheet, including pillow-cover. Also, even though I spent only one night there, I found some people I chatted with and friendly. The place is not far from the city centre (15 min ca by walk) and it is easy to find. Also, the care about differentiating trash :) PS: I really liked the coziness of the place! They even set-up a space in the bathroom where you can leave things one does not use anymore, like soap or shower-gel/shampoo or anything else.

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    The room was beautifully designed and very comfy. I had a little reading nook by my window and considering I booked one of the cheaper options available it did not feel like a budget room at all. It really felt like a lot of care was put into everything. Activities were always available, almost like a hostel atmosphere but with ten times the luxury. Honestly, it felt like the hotel itself could be a tourist attraction! The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the location is a two minute walk away from T-centralen so super handy!

    great value for money, the location is superb - one bridge away from the old town, on beautiful Sodermälm island. for a price of two bunk beds in big hostel room you get a cosy private cabin for two right in the heart of the city 😍 also there is a kitchen, which is a salvation for budget tourist

    I hesitated writing a good review, because it feels like I discovered a well-kept secret. Totally worth the cheap price, set in a wonderful location, close to the center, in peaceful surroundings, and a standard that is worthy of upmarket hotels, yet with the affordable price of a youth hostel. Friendly staff too. We'll definitely be back.

    Great hostel, with a really convenient location, 5 min walk from the Central station and Arlanda express and not far from the touristic spots. . The 4 people room is basic but clean, with two bunk beds and 4 lockers. The hostel is mostly quiet and in a safe zone (had no issue walking alone at night as a girl). I loved also the sauna that is perfect after a full day walking in the cold weather! The staff are always available 9am-8pm or via Whatsapp.

    Great location, ambience, beds had mini shelves and curtains for privacy. WC and showers were clean, hairdryer provided, Wi-Fi included and good speed, kitchen facilities were good, luggage storage was very convenient. Hostel is on third floor with each room having key code. There was elevator so going up or down wasn't a problem. Rooms felt safe and secure.
