We stayed one night and it was great. The receptionist friendly and professional. The room simple but clean and efficient. Especially we liked the kitchen for guests with several fridges and all equipment for simple cooking! Thumbs up 👍! Breakfast in the winter garden next to the water was just perfect: all you need!

Arrived in Kalmar in early September to do some gamily genealogy. Had been given hotel and hostel information from information center in Kalmar- which did not pan out as most hostels that were located in school dorms were not available due to school start. Found Svanen- and what a beautiful surprise. We got the last room, which had king bed... More

The Svanen is both a hotel and a youth hostel. The first option offers, still at very reasonable prices, more options and less obligations, such as the one of cleaning up the room when leaving, then the hostel. We booked the family room that offers, in not a lot of space, a simple yet modern accommodation. Walking distance from the... More

We stayed one night in the vandrarhem. We had a twin room that we converted into a double bed. We had our own toilet and sink which which is not common for a youth hostel. We had shared showers but clean. The staff was nice. The breakfast was awesome, a big buffet with everything you'd like for breakfast. Nothing special... More

we came to the hotel and had to decide if we want to stay in the hostel or in the hotel, as the doorms were fully booked. the rooms were the same, so it was more or less just the question if we want to have wifi included or not. for us it seemed to be very old-fashioned, still to... More

A hostel and small hotel with private hotel rooms, private hostel rooms with shared showers and dorms all available to suit your budget. Not in the center of Kalmar itself but about a 15min walk away and set in a quiet area. There is a shop close by for basic groceries and the bus stop is right in front of... More

I stayed in a single-room in the hostel section. The room had 2 single beds and a toilet + sink. There were two shared shower rooms in the corridor (also clean). It is located in Ängö - around 10-15 minutes walk to central Kalmar. Very quiet residential area with one pizzeria a few houses down and a small grocery store... More

Just outside Kalmar, a nice clean hostel. I would prefer to stay in a place inside the very beautiful Kalmar than in Svanen, but we had a car and the place offers a parking space just outside. Breakfast is typical, served in a nice hall.
