Great hostel! It's easy to get to know other people there and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need (except for an oven, but people just prepared their pizzas in the microwave and that worked out as well :-) )

Perhaps because of the word "Backpacker" in the title, I felt a bit more tolerant of some of the rougher aspects of this hostel, but I enjoyed my stay despite a few inconveniences. It provides a very adequate and comfortable stay if you are a true backpacker! Positives: big lockers, friendly staff, close to a park, movie nights and good activitiy spaces Negatives: a decent walk to most major sights, some slightly out-of-repair bathroom implements

As Gothenburg is a relatively small city/town, the hostel options were limited. As a hostel there is no atmosphere whatsoever which brought down the overall mood...depending on your preference may or may not be a good thing. There are ample bathrooms/showers which is a plus, the kitchen was well equipped and overall the hostel was pretty clean. It's close to trams which can take you anywhere in the town, and it's walking distance from a street known for it's bars and relaxed nightlife.

Nice and clean hostel. Excellent facilities:especially the kitchen and bathrooms are worth mentioning. Of all the hostels we've stayed in, this one definitely has the best value for money compared to the expensive Scandinavian hostel scene. A bit outside of the center, but tram connection is good and it's only a short walk away from the cool Haga district, which in turn is not far from the center.

Good facilities and very social. ~2-3km to town centre so get a bus pass from 7/11 (~2.5USD one way). The 16bed male dorm has attracted very "unique" Swedish people both times I've stayed here. Some younger travellers were scared, so I'd recommend getting a small room if you're easily alarmed by unusual characters. I saw the funny side. I would definitely stay here again.

The location is better than a lot of people think, but unfortunately this hostel is expensive and you get very little for that money. The beds are older and not that comfortable. The bathrooms are fine, but the smell of mildew in a few of them is a problem I have not encountered at other hostels. The worst part about this hostel is that it is not a good place to go when you are a young single backpacker. It is incredibly hard to meet people, at least when I was there.

This hostel is like sharing an apartment with people you don't know. It is located as an offshoot of another hostel across an alley. I saw no staff besides checking in and checking out. It was clean and decent location pretty close to the main part of town and a beautiful park. Clientele seemed to be a bit older but it could've just been my timing. Overall a decent place but not the best atmosphere.

Thank you for leaving a review. We hope you enjoyed your stay with us. We have several different buildings with our reception in the main one. The staff normally go around during the evenings to check so all is good. Happy to hear you liked the park, it really is great! Hope to see you again and have a great summer. Kind Regards Slottsskogens Hotel & Hostel

Good location right in the middle of the city, however the bathrooms werent functioning on several occasions and the showers were down a basement and past several corridors...

Thank you for leaving a review. We are glad you enjoyed our ares. There really is so much to do around us. We are sorry to hear that there was problems with the bathrooms during your stay. About the showers, they are located on every floor of the hostel. Maybe you missed them if you used the ones on the lower floor? Have a great summer and hope to see you again. Kind Regards Slottsskogens Hotel & Hostel

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.
