I stayed in a single-room in the hostel section. The room had 2 single beds and a toilet + sink. There were two shared shower rooms in the corridor (also clean).
It is located in Ängö - around 10-15 minutes walk to central Kalmar. Very quiet residential area with one pizzeria a few houses down and a small grocery store a few blocks down. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
The kitchen is shared for the entire hostel and although contains ovens, fridges and microwaves it can get quite crowded when the hostel is full. There is also a lack of proper knives for other utensils. It is fine if one is staying a few days but can be a bother if staying for longer periods (few weeks or months!).
