Place wasn't that cheap as we booked it when some huge football tournament was on but normally I think it's decent value. Communal kitchen was good and the bathroom facilities did the job. You can walk to the hostel in about 40 mins from the station so not ideal but not awful either. Reception not open that long but didn't really need to be, free wi-fi provided although a little weak in our room. Free computer provided in the lobby if you need it.


Location is far from city centre (half hour walk). Room was clean but very basic, bunk beds even in twin room. No windows-very stuffy and strange. Appears to be several families permanently living here. No communal atmosphere. We checked in late and were given helpful/clear instructions via email, however saw no staff in our entire 3 night stay. Almost non existent. Had a man in our corridor stuck in his room, yelling and banging all night, however there was no staff around to help. Alarming...

There was aboslutely no flow of air in the room. I sweat in the room and my sweaty clothes never got dry because there was no air in the room. There was no internet in the room. The range of the WiFi stopped in the middle of the corridor and did not reach the room at the end of the corridor. It was impossible be in the room and relax because it was a hot sauna with no flow of air, no internet, no window, no television. For this poor quality of room, the price was extremely too much.


The fact that their front desk is only open from 1-4pm is non-sensical. Our flight was delayed and the staff claimed that they emailed us our room # and door passcode but it was never received. If you're going to have reduced desk hours, you should at least have an organized management system. Ironically, another group of people that we tan into faced the same problem the next night. Otherwise, good location and clean hostel.

stayed in single room, which was very( ! ) small- however this hostel seems to be one of the cheapest options in the whole city for a single room!


I answered the questionas about Linne Hostel from my mail unordg@gmail.com


The hostel staff was really nice and helpful to us. The rooms are ok, but you have to rent the bedlinen. The bedlinen were not that clean as I expected, they had fluff on it. The shower rooms are in my opintion too few for the number of people that can be in this hostel. Two showers for about 20 people. The kitchen is well equipped and has also an dishwasher so we could prepare our meals without problem. If you go there by car, be aware that you have to pay min. 15 kr/h at day and 3-5 kr/h night


We spent one night there and we were so sad about leaving!! Great room and toilets/showers, good location: quiet in the night and next to a supermarket! It would have been great if bed linens were included or the rent price was cheaper..Btw, we recommend this hostel! ;)


Conveniently located just 12 minutes by bus from the Central station (buses every 10 minutes), next to a supermarket and a lively Linné Avenue with lots of pubs and restaurants. And, Gothenburg is a place really worth visiting :-)
