Even though there was nothing especially wrong with the hostel, it was not 'amazing' either. The best thing about the hostel is the staff, they were very friendly and helpfull. The common room was also nice and looked really modern. They have pretty good movies there every night, which is really nice. However, the bathrooms are quite old and therefore... More

Had a lovely stay at Slottsskogens Youth Hostel. The dorm room was very spacious, bathrooms very clean, beds comfortable, kitchen well equipped and staff helpful. It's a few tram stops away from the centre of Gothenburg but it's not too difficult to get to - the closest tram stop to the hostel is about a 3-4 minute walk away. Only... More

Thank you for your response. I am really glad that you enjoyed your stay at our hostel. We are still trying to give our guest the choice to keep the cost's down by bringing their own sheets. This is still the most common solution in Scandinavia......but we are slowly waking up. Next time you come it might be included ;-)... More

This backpackers was a welcome change from my previous negative experience in Goteburg. It was 399 +50 for the linen hire + 70 for a organic breakie which was lovely and a good selection. The rooms were spacious and comfortable for me, shower and toilets very clean. And remember, after the shower, you can leave it clean removing all the... More

Hey. Great summary of some of all the goodies. We are trying also to include the sheets in the price through some booing channels. This to see, whether more travellers appreciate a lower price or a higher level of service. We willll se if we'll always include them in the future. More

I stayed here for a weekend to visit the fitnessfestivalen with two friends. We slept in the big 16-bed male dorm and we found everything to be clean and nice. The kitchen and the common area was nice and modern (except for the TV) but there were no good knives for cutting meat. Bathrooms and showers were clean and nice... More

Stayed at this hostel in February 2013 with some mates, when visiting some friends in the city. This place was great! We had our own room for 4 people to share, it was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen facilities allowed us to cook, and the other people at the hostel were very friendly. We ended up... More

It is a good place for people with low needs, who just want to find a place to sleep and cook some food. The kitchen has everything, also 2 fridgerator. Our room was small, but enough for us. There is a small lockable box undeneath the beds.
