    Amazing hostel. Very social. Great facilities (private bathroom + shower). Location is perfect next to the big park and walkable to the centre. Security was very good with a key card and lockers (bring your own lock). All the beds have curtains so it's very private. Another plus is that it is not noisy due to the corridor between the 'living room' and the dorms. They even let me shower, after I came from a long night bus trip, before I could check in and they stored my luggage.

    Great hostel, easy to get to on the bus, but also not that far if you want to walk to the city. Clean place with a great kitchen and fantastic showers. Definitely great value

    Great hostel, made good friends, a nice size (cozy but social!). My only complaint it that the room smelled sorta funky, and that the bed frames were dirty beneath the mattress, as well as there being an old sleep mask left on my bed which suggested that it hadn't been cleaned. Other than that, the kitchen was great and the bathrooms lovely!

    Location is best since it is walking distance to old town and botanical garden. The cleanliness is top notch for hostel standard and also easy check in. It’s not too crowded, and the bathrooms are shared but separated individually—so you still have your privacy. Utensils are old but okay. Overall, recommended!

    A fair distance from the train station and bus station, but nonetheless situated in a beautiful area of Gothenburg right next to a large park. Very friendly staff!

    Good location and right next to the hop on hop off bus stop. Also next to Slottskogen which is a fabulous park. Fantastic paid breakfast. Rooms are very spacious and beds comfy. Not the best common area and it gets way too crowded. The kitchen and the common area are the same space. However, more room in the other buildings so it wasnt too bad. Never had to wait for a bathroom. I would recommend this hostel and use it again.

    A hostel on a good location. It has an old feel to it and the dorm smelled also a bit 'old'. Basic but good.

    The window in our room opened directly to the street sidewalk, so if the window was open someone could literally just walk into the room from there. So the room was stuffy, hot and overpacked and we could't open the window. There were a lot of elderly staying. Lots of people in their underwear on the halls, not family friendly. The bathroom smelled strongly of sulphur constantly, but it wasn't necessarily unclean. The staff was nice. We didnt use the kitchen. Very quiet at least.
