The is just by a huge park even has own zoo and sealion pool. Despite not right in the centre, there are trams not far away, or you can hire a bike at the entrance to the park (apparently it's pretty cheap, but I didn't need to as I had my own bike with me), and it's less than 15 minutes ride to the centre.

I had a great stay! Felt very safe and comfortable. The showers and bedrooms were very clean and well taken care of. Even made some new travel buddies!

The lockers provided under the beds were too flat to properly fit a backpack into and the upper bunk beds were a little difficult to climb into and out of because the ladder was too far to the side.

I stayed in the dorm room. The hostel is clean, the kitchen/living room is great to meet people and even though the hostel is a bit away from the old town on foot, there is a tramway station very close. I would definitively come back there again next time.

A pleasant hostel. Friendly and social kitchen/common room, so awesome for making friends. Close to a tram, so access to the rest of the city is convenient. The kitchen was cramped, and a bit poorly lit. Overall, I had a nice stay here.

This hostel was hard to find, it was in a strange neighbourhood (although it was really close to a great park) and there weren't many signs saying where it was. The atmosphere was good but not amazing!

Thank you for leaving a review. Sorry to hear that you found it hard to find us. On our website there is an explanation how to get here by both car and with local transportation. We are in the area Linné close to many of the cities attractions, easy to get to trams and buses and surrounded by many cafés and restaurants. Sad to hear that you found the area strange. We are always striving to be better and hearing your comments help up do that. Thank you and welcome back! / Slottsskogens Hostel

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

Thanks for leaving a review. Sorry to hear you had noisy room mates. We hope that our guest are respectful while sharing room with others. Unfortunately this is not always the case. We hope to see you again, and if there are anything similar feel free to come and talk to the staff in the reception about it. Take care! Kind Regards Slottsskogens Hotel & Hostel

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.

The liquor store is open til 7pm weekdays and till 3 on Saturdays unless its a holiday. Hope to see you again and happy to hear that you enjoyed Gothenburg! // The crew at Slottskogens Hotel & Hostel

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
