This hostel costs more than the one I stayed at in Jönköping, but the breakfast is good (and extra) and the room is very comfortable. Their is a friendly atmosphere because of the layout at the entrance. There are almost always people in the reception area.

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.

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
