Nice staff, good wifi, fairly clean in both rooms and common spaces. I’ve stayed here several times due to the location and haven’t been dissatisfied so far. It’s pretty much what you could expect from a good hostel.

Great hostel in a good location (walkable to most major sights). The hostel organized a fun night out while I was there and did a great job of bringing the group from bar to bar. Would recommend to anyone visiting.

The hostel is very nice and clean, with good staff and good price. The coolest thing is that they have a guy who organizes some events for travelers, like walking tours around the city, BBQ at the park, and so on. This is special to meet people all over the world!

I stayed in this hostel for a longer period as it took me some time to find an apartment. The hostel offers a lot of activities like BBQ or bar hopping which is very nice for solo travelers as you meet a lot of new people! Everything was clean and I really enjoyed the stay!

This hostel was a great (read: cheap) option for our one-night stay in Gothenburg. We biked to get there, which was a bit of a hike from central station, but it was tidy and comfortable. Many of the rooms are in a basement which is somewhat off-putting, but the rooms are clean

Hello Maddie, and thank you for the review! Our rooms are located in a couple of different buildings and we have more spacious rooms and upper floor rooms as well. If you would visit again we would be happy to accommodate you in one of those rooms. I will make sure the cleaning staff hears your kind words, they will surely appreciate it. All the best!

Hi there, So far we have not had anyone staying here for two straight years so this is not something we normally offer. If you are staying in Gothenburg for studying here for two years I also personally think that you will find some place more suited for your needs than a hostel.

Hi Rachael! I also took bed linen with me, but I would guess around 60 SEK. That is normally how much it costs here in Sweden. Send an email to the hostel, and they will tell you exactly!

"Photos on websites are not misleading"
"Noisy in summers. No AC."
"the dorm is good for what it is, but if you have the cash I would recommend putting in a little extra and go for a private room."
"Rooms vary in size and number of beds, so ask."
"If you're travelling solo, take part in the events: meeting people is always nice, and that way you have a buddy to sit with for breakfast!"
