City Hostel - Central Station

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

City Hostel is located 450 meters from the airport buses and the central station with trains, buses and subway communications, right in the middle of Stockholm City!

A new part of the hostel opened in February 2008 which since then was renovated completely in 2012. The other part was totally renovated in June 2006. A new entrance and kitchen was built in May 2009. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything from stove to fridges.

City Hostel has a capacity of 79 beds (with reading light) and offers accommodation suitable for all age groups in a relaxed and international atmosphere. Showers and toilets are found in the corridor.

The hostel itself is located in a popular area close to pubs, nightclubs, restaurants and all sorts of entertainment, such as large cinema complexes. The area is safe to walk in, and is one of the nicest neighbourhoods in Stockholm.

This is the perfect place to stay for a weekend break or even when you have to stay the night just to wait for the next flight.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The hostel is very modern and nicely renovated. The only problem is that it is located in the basement and there is no window to any of the rooms. For people who have phobia about enclosed area, it is not advisable, else it is a nice place to stay.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed here before they renovated the place, back when it was called Abbes hostel. I was only in Stockholm for one night and just looking for a cheap, convenient place to sleep and this ticked all the boxes. My only gripe was that I arrived after their main desk was closed, so it became a bit of a hassle actually getting in. I was sleeping downstairs and found the bed comfy, although the ceiling was low and I don't remember any rooms so some might find it a little claustrophobic.

All in all though, it's central and cheap, so would recommend it to travellers looking to experience Stockholm on a budget!
