The hostel is OK, I was just unlucky with other guests in the male dorm. One took an occupied bed, resulting in some noise when the owner came back at 1am reclaiming his spot. People laughing after midnight, people watching movies without headphones after midnight

When I booked a bed in a 12 bed dorm, the ad stated that there were curtains above each bed to ensure privacy. This was not the case, so I was a bit disapointed.

The hostel is quite nice and well situated.

Helpful at front desk, very clean, comfortable bed, reading lights and plug points at every bed is great, but mine didn't work; great kitchen, lounge with TV; you need to make an effort to make an atmosphere and ask people to have pre-drinks or go out at night. Gothenburg doesn't sell alcohol at liquor stores after 1pm, I think. Overall amazing hostel and lots to do in Gothenburg.

There were not enough cutleries in the kitchen (only one spoon !!).

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. We constantly look over the kitchens as cutlery has a way of wondering off or missing. Sorry to hear this was the case during your stay. Thank you for telling us so we can get better at making sure everything is in it´s place. Take care and welcome back! // The crew at Slottsskogens Hotel & Hostel

Had one of the best hostelling experiences here ever. Because of the way the dining area beside the kitchen is laid out, it encourages conversation between the hostellers. I made some great friends here. The staff were excellent and really accommodating. The kitchen was very nice, and quite modern. Oil was provided also. The beds were very comfortable and some offered a blanket over the bunks to keep out the sun. I'd recommend this to anyone hostelling, maybe you'll have as good a time :)

Have been sleeping in the female dormitory, it was clean and the beds are comfortable. The hostel is well located: close from the tram to the central station and you can even walk to many nice and interesting areas of Göteborg without problem.

I had a really lovely time staying here! The hostels was lovely and the staff were friendly. A great place to stay. I wasn't sure the breakfast was worth the money but it is really good to know you have food for the morning sorted :)

The person at the reception was really kind and helpful. Unfortunately we felt like our room hasn't been cleaned after the last renter as the used sheets were still lying on the floor and the trash can was still full. The matress was really uncomfortable and it was really loud in the hostel at night time so we couldn't catch that much sleep. The location was good though and for the price and only one night it was ok.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Of course all our rooms should be cleaned before check in so we really apologies for what happened to you. It must have been a mix up some where and a mistake must have been made, again our apologies. We appreciate your comments and will have a look at the mattress in the room you stayed in. Kind regards / The crew at Slottsskogens Hotel and Hostel

The place was in a good location, probably a 15 minute walk from the city center, but very close to a bunch of bars and restaurants. Had a great experience, staff was extremely nice and helpful

Perfect spot to just grab a bed and go the next day. The curtains over the bunks are a fantastic touch (it's good to not bother neighbors with your reading light at night). Comfortable mattresses. HEATED bathroom floors =) Decent location. Pretty easy to walk around from there. Friendly staff, easy check in and out.

This place wasn't bad at all. Clean facilities comfy beds, but the place is dead. Maybe we were there in the off season but it was just a ghost town. I'm all about meeting new people and it was difficult when no one else was staying there. But for Sweden it was fairly inexpensive and a decent place to sleep.

Thank you very much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay wit us. You are right, during your stay Gothenburg was pretty quiet. We hope you come again sometime during the summer when it is more busy both at the hostel and in the city. Welcome back! Kind Regards / The crew at Slottsskogens Hotel & Hostel

I really loved everything in this hostel!

Excellent kitchen facilities, rooms have lockers for each bed, big dorms though and got warm at night. The common area is great for meeting new friends, though! It is really probably the best deal in Goteborg, for a hostel. The staff was super helpful with all my questions and needs. Location is out from the main town a bit but still easy walking distance to great views, restaurants and pubs.
