Floyd the owner was such a great, helpful guy. The hostel is like staying in a hotel as the place is amazing. It is really clean and had a great kitchen with everything you would need with lots of foods available to take at any time. There's a lounge area to socialise in. The location is great and there's free parking on the streets. The security is great. Thanks so much for everyone thing. Would def stay there again.

This hostel was great. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is brilliant and they have a lounge and other areas like a reception and seated kitchen area to socialise. The rooms are clean and have comfortable beds. Wifi is only in the reception area, but there are comfortable couches and chairs there. There is a full kitchen for people to use and they have a free breakfast. Showers are downstairs by the surfing board storage room. Would definitely stay again.

The location is great and if it didn't have the bar for people staying at the hostel and for anyone else, it would be terrible. The staff are hardly ever there and the bar staff can't answer questions. The cleaner lady was so rude when I told her there was mouldy food in the room. I stayed for four nights and they didn't once clean the room- it was filthy especially the floor. The bathroom was mostly clean. The bar is great and they offer cheaper drinks and food for people staying at the hostel.

Hi Carla, Thank you for your review. Summer has been a very busy period for us, very enjoyable but very busy. I apologise we couldn't tend to your needs as should for the duration of your stay. We do have 2 house keepers on duty every morning to clean and prep the room for new guests. The flooring is currently being looked into for maintenance, unfortunately have not been able to get in done in the hype of summer. Hope to see you here again one day soon. St Christopher's Crew

Such an awesome hostel. Andrew was brilliant- so helpful. Walking tour; bike tour; castle with extra £3 was great. Cardiff is a cool little city with amazing cheap bars. Hostel is updating lockers, but can leave valuables with staff at desk. Staff members always available. Cool pool table and lots of fun games. Breakfast was good and the most comfortable beds with two pillows in large rooms. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Would def stay again.

Great time in Bratislava- tiny and you can see it all including doing the walking tour in an afternoon. Great nightlife, but the hostel told us to go on the pub crawl for €3, but when we got to the first bar, they charged us the full price because they said we needed a card from the hostel which we hadn't been given. The lady taking the pub crawl was very rude to us when we complained to her +she didn't want to give us a drink which we realised later on she hadn't us understood us. Clean hostel.

Great hostel with great lounge and kitchen area. Lovely staff. Clean. Bathroom was big. Great location and atmosphere. Only thing I didn't like was that because there were no staff members in evening, the backpackers let people stay on the couch every night. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely staff who were very helpful and brilliant that they had either Cakes and wine or watermelon vodka treat out every day. At times bathrooms did get a bit gross, but they were cleaned once a day. Great atmosphere with lovely common room and kitchen. Wifi everywhere. Tight showers, but could get changed with main bathroom door closed. I would definitely stay again.

Very Helpful staff, extremely clean, great location, unfortunately no atmosphere as there was only one other person staying there. Was very chilled, but I loved Tossa de Mar. Did diving there and was really reasonably priced. Was there two days, but wanted to stay longer. Lots of bars and clubs close to hostel, but probably only starts getting busy in June for the summer. I would definitely stay there again.

Location is great, breakfast was good. I gave the hostel good for cleanliness because the hostel was clean, just at times female bathroom was a bit grubby + the first room I stayed in was really clean, but the second one stunk, but that might have been the peoples fault not the hostels. I gave good for staff because they were extremely helpful and friendly, but when I booked the second room for 2 days later, the woman was stroppy about me paying 5euros deposit +I could just pay 2 on hostelworld.

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.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. Sorry to hear that your bed light was not working. Let us know next time and we will make sure to fix it for you. 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

Fantastic helpful staff. Great location. You can hire a towell from them for 2euros then get it back when you return it. Bar with cheapish drinks and smoking room next to it. Rooms and bathrooms always clean, but we did see a mouse in our room- prob someone left food out. They tell you to pay a 1euro deposit for key to get it back at end, but then ask you to donate it to charity. Hairdryers in bathroom. Good breakfast- toast, boiled eggs, cereals. Would definitely stay again.

This hostel was great- great bar, great advice from staff, great atmosphere, clean, bring your own lock for the lockers in the room. All of the staff were extremely helpful except one guy who works at the front desk, who was so arrogant and rude- wish I got his name. Besides him, was fantastic. Lots of cereals to choose from and toast- free coffee and hot choc throughout the day. I'd stay there again.

Very helpful staff.I asked a member of staff if I could move to the cheaper room after my first night, and they said it was only 1 euro cheaper and was full. Other travelers told me the price and was quite a bit cheaper and they had space in their rooms. Loved the privacy with the curtains. Huge room size. Luckily for the club cos bit out of the way. Bedroom clean, not always bathroom. I would return.

Thank you so so much for your honest feedback on us. We work very hard to give you the best time you can possibily have when travelling. Our privacy curtains are a charm and we too love them ;-) I am sorry you found difference in price for your room. Our prices vary a lot from online and in the reception desk. The sooner you book a bed, the cheaper it is and booking online makes a huge difference. We really hope that you will indeed return and we are looking forward to the day you do =)
