Located just a couple minutes away from Central Station and the center of Stockholm, City Backpackers is the perfect place for, well, backpackers. The hostel offers 20 rooms with 51 beds and a large open-air courtyard connecting its two buildings.
The rooms are dorm-like: Bunk beds, reading lamps, and lockers are the standard fare. Some rooms have windows, but quite a few are in the basement (where you'll also find the guest kitchen and TV lounge). The shared bathrooms are cramped, but clean. Most visitors tend to just grab a bed in the dorm, although City Backpacker does offer a 6-bed room available for groups.
The entrance to City Backpackers is actually through City Cafe which, when we were there, was crawling with young twenty-somethings willing to pay the few extra kronors for breakfast.
City Backpacker offers plenty of extras: Bike rentals (the first two hours are free), Swedish language movies shown in the TV lounge every evening at 9:00 PM (with subtitles, of course), free pasta, and guided tours. There’s even a sauna that's free to use during certain hours.
