Walking distance to the city center, close to the botanical gardens and Slottsskogen park. Good kitchen facilities, staff were nice.. The only downside was the room,... More

Rather clean, extremely friendly staff, AWESOME free tour by Leo!! Its just a little difficult to find, but rather easy to solve with Google! The rooms are extremely basic but that is seemingly par for the course in the hostels in Scandinavia so far.

Really nice and clean hostel. With backpacker rooms, which are the perfect meeting-place when you’re out travelling. Close to the night life. Activities organized by Francesco in the evenings are the best way to meet other travellers and have an unforgettable trip in Göteborg!

My stay at the hostel was really good. The beds are great, the curtains provide privacy. Also a big plus where the toiletries free to use (in the female dorm). The showers and kitchen are ok. The activities at night, by Francesco, made my stay fabulous. Incredible nice guy, so if you want to have a really good time, join... More

The hostel is located close to a big park and there are a lot of restaurants and cafes in the area. The kitchen is very big so it's never overcrowded and breakfast is nice. I suggest to book through hostelworld so you don't have to pay extra for bed sheets. They have some events during the week that can help... More
