I stayed at the hostel over the weekend when visiting Gothenburg. I've only stayed in a handful of hostels but this was by far the best one I have been in. The staff are friendly and helpful. When we arrived, our room wasn't ready so we stored our bags in a room in reception which they keep locked via a... More

I've been there in the New Year's Eve of 2009 with two friends of mine. The experience has been really positive. The room was not huge but very cosy, the beds were comfortable, very clean and we also had the Tv in our room. The personnel from the hostel was always very helpful and friendly. The bathroom was in common... More

This hostel is not hard to find - the location is good (you can walk to the town if you like walking) and the instructions on the website are useful. The staff are nice and so are the rooms. The bathrooms are okay if you are the first one using them - otherwise you can swim to the shower. And... More

Really well-kept and the owners were awesome. I showed up unexpectedly because the Midsummer Festival derailed my plans to go to Oslo. The staff were very accommodating. Unfortunately I got stuck in a dorm room with two incredibly snotty girls who kind of ruined the experience for me, but if they hadn't been there I'm sure I would have enjoyed... More

The only thing that slightly annoyed me was that you had to pay an additional fee if you werent a member of some sort of hostel association and instead of telling me that it would be cheaper to join and not pay the fee (which it would have been), the girl behind the counter just added on the additional fee...

I adore this place, it's cheap, friendly, comfortably and close enough to the city centre for all your needs. I'm usually opt for a small dorm, sharing with perhaps up to 3 others, one of the beds is usually a double and I've always grabbed that first; in the winter, I rarely had to share at all. They offer a... More

I booked the hostel based on their descrition. it's like this: We can offer comfortable living in 2-6-bedded rooms or in studioapartments with kitchen and your own bathroom. All the rooms are equipped with a hairdryer and an alarm clock. Most of the rooms also have a TV. The accommodation is well worth its price! When you stay with us... More

I stayed at this hostel in July 2001. Extremely clean and well organised. The slight drawback being that it was a good 20 minute walk from the train station, though there were regular buses. The rooms are so clean and comfortable. There are numerous large bathrooms, though these are not in the rooms. The buffet breakfast was delicious and well... More
