Scandic Europa, Hotel G, Eggers, Grand hotel Opera and Scandic Crown are all located close to Central station/Drottningtorget with easy access to trams and buses.

Spar Hotel Majorna and Hotell Kusten (also in Majorna) are pretty close to Slottskogen.

Not sure whether to start a new topic but could someone recommend a decent hostel in the area that would be handy for Way Out West?

Were trying to do the trip on the cheap :)

Public transport is good and Gothenburg is a very walkable city as well. But WOW is very popular and you have to be early with booking rooms.

Some other suggestions:

Masthuggsterrassens vandrarhem

www.mastenvandrarhem.com

Göteborgs mini hotel

www.minihotel.se

Lilleyby vandrarhem

www.lillebyvandrarhem.se

easy access by bus a bit to far out in my opinion, takes about 30 min from central station by bus

Or you will have to start looking for some cheap hotel rooms.

Hotel Kville

Hotel on Hisingen island

Arena hotel

www.arenahotel.eu

very central

Maria Eriksson

http://www.mariaspensionat.nu/

good location

Apple hotel

www.applehotel.se

quite far away

Good luck!

I've found this one available - Dalagarde Vandrarhem

Is it far from WOW?

It's on the island of Hisingen, quite far off from WOW. It's approx 40 min by bus from Linnéplatsen, close to Slottskogen. So you will have to use public transport or take a taxi to get back. Chech out the timetables here http://www.vasttrafik.se

If yoy vill have to rely on taxis (pretty expensive in Gothenburg) it might be just as cheap to stay in a hotel where you can walk instead.
