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.

If you want to stay here quietly, you get the right choice.

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.

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.

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.

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
