    Backpackers Göteborg was a pleasant three night stay recently and went above and beyond to welcome me. The keycard access into the building and multiple other doorways made you feel very secure. Due to COVID-19 at the moment, I had booked a 16 person dorm but was moved into a two person room with no extra cost. Winning! A good breakfast with unlimited coffee for just 65sek was a steal. Will definitely stay here again in the future.

    The hostel was a lot of fun despite there not being as many people due to COVID. They’re cautions and don’t have their 12 bed rooms open, to not have too many people in the same room. The staff is very accommodating and the rooms are nice. A day after I left, they had their first event since COVID, an outdoor BBQ for guests! The only thing is that it’s in a tiny pocket of a rough area, only a block away from a rich area, and a 5 minute walk from the streets with fun bars, very safe!

    I arrived in Gothenburg pretty late and this hostel was ideal to crash in for a night. However, there wasn't much of an atmosphere and it didn't feel particularly sociable, the common room was also fairly small (but this could've been due to arriving around 10 in the evening as the people i saw in the morning were nice and friendly). Location was pretty convenient and the staff were especially helpful !
